These classes are 90 minutes long and are most suitable for people without limitations and some experience of yoga. The classes are on Tuesdays 6.30 – 8.00 at South Luffenham Village Hall and Wednesdays 6.30 – 8.00 at Ryhall Village Hall.
It’s best to arrive 10 minutes before the class begins so that you can lay out your mat and get settled. First of all we have a few minutes of breath awareness or other quiet practice so that we can get focused.
We begin to move the body with a thorough warm up. Afterwards we explore postures to increase strength, flexibility and stamina in the physical body. To get the most from this class, it’s best to have some yoga experience and reasonable level of fitness. However, beginners can join where space allows. If you have any movement restrictions or injuries then it’s best to start yoga with one of the Gentle Yoga classes.
The yoga session continues with breathing exercises which develop a greater awareness of the subtle energy in the body. Yogic philosophy and history are woven into the class practices. We round off the class with a meditation or relaxation exercise.
I always encourage students to do some yoga at home. Regular yoga – ‘little and often’ – is the key to keeping the body and mind healthy.
If you would like to book a place, please contact me and I’ll be delighted to book you in.
