Yoga on Mondays – Exton – What to expect
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 will have a few minutes of breath awareness or other quiet practice so that we can get focused.
We take the same class as Yoga for Vitality but at a slower pace. This gives more time for explanations and demonstrations. As a result we can use modifications wherever we need to. The emphasis in this class is on building a safe practice. Consequently providing a foundation to strengthen and tone areas of the body where there may be problems.
Alternatively, it’s suitable for able students with no prior knowledge of yoga. Moving at a slower pace gives more time to understand how the mind and body work together for good health. This is especially beneficial to people leading stressful lives, self employed or with high profile jobs.
The yoga session continues with breathing exercises which develop a greater awareness of the subtle energy in the body. Finally, we round off the class with a meditation or relaxation exercise.
I always encourage students to do some yoga at home because regular yoga – ‘little and often’ – is the key to keeping the body and mind healthy.
