The ancient practice of Yoga holds much wisdom for our modern lives
This introductory class follows the form of traditional Indian yoga practice.
It includes the practice of yoga asanas (postures) both static and dynamic. We will practice breath awareness and explore a pranayama ( breathing exercise) that is a wonderfully simple ‘stress busting’ technique. As we will be in a lovely library, I will bring to the class a sprinkling of yoga philosophy and some books on Yoga for you to peruse after the class.
We will aim to create balance and harmony with the mind, body and breath working together consciously and mindfully. The class will draw to an end with a short relaxation.
This introductory class will be suitable for beginners, with an emphasis on correct alignment and learning to be in a state of steadiness and comfort. The classes I teach, build upon each other in order to embark on a yoga journey that develops a deeper understanding and practice of yoga.
As this is an 'open' class please do let me know if you have any health conditions or injuries that may affect your yoga practice.
