If you have never done yoga before, or it’s been a while since you’ve rolled out the mat, then this is the class for you. In a relaxed and comfortable environment, we will introduce you to:
- The fundamental yoga postures
- Simple stretches
- Effective breathing exercises
- Easy relaxation techniques
Yoga is a non-competitive, but the sense of achievement when a yoga posture is conquered is a huge boost to confidence. It feels great!
This easy, relaxing yoga helps to promote wellbeing through very gentle movement, deep relaxation, rest and breathing. This is the class for you if you are:
- Someone who is interested in a slow, restful class.
- Looking for some time to be very gentle with yourself.
- Stressed but know you would like to move just a little.
- Feeling sore and would love a little stretch.
- Recovering from illness.
Fully supported by cushions, bolsters and blankets, your body stretches without effort. Emotional, physical and hormonal balance is restored, tension and anxiety release, allowing you to relax and recuperate. All are welcome.
Yoga Nidra is about rest or conscious sleeping, like that dreamy phase just before you fall asleep.
Lying down on a mat and warm blankets, you are quietly guided to release tension in your whole body and then mindfully carm the chatter in your head, leading to a state of total relaxation for 45 minutes to an hour.
Yoga Nidra is amongst the deepest possible states of peacefulness while still remaining aware of your environment and also aware of just how still you have become. This has been found to be hugely beneficial in reducing tension and anxiety, and aiding restful sleep.
Mindfullness forms a part of every yoga class, and the practice of yoga often leads to an enquiry into Meditation as part of our daily lives.
We regularly offer specific Mindfullness and Meditation classes, courses and workshops as a way to help you to find the type of Meditation that works for you, be it active, quiet, focused or contemplative.
Watch out for these being posted on the website and Facebook or sign-up to be notified in advance.
