This class is suitable for complete beginners as well as those who have some previous experience of yoga and would like to deepen their practice.
Students will be introduced to classic yoga poses (asana) which combine flexibility with strength, balance and stability. Modifications and progressions will be offered throughout the class to ensure each student is practising at a level they are comfortable with (a short medical and lifestyle questionnaire is given prior to the first class).The atmosphere in class is very much inclusive and non-competitive allowing students the opportunity to practise mindfully, developing body awareness and challenging themselves accordingly.
Once students are comfortable with the shapes and alignment of these poses we will begin to link them together into short flowing sequences (vinyasa) focussing on moving with the breath.
The focus on breath awareness is integral to yoga and will be a key component of each class. Students will be introduced to different pranayama and breath awareness techniques which focus on calming and centring the brain and body. Each session will end with an opportunity for meditation and a period of relaxation.
Student need to have their own mat and yoga blocks (or something similar eg. A couple of big books). Please dress in comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. It is recommended that you do not eat heavily in the two hours before class. You may wish to prepare a bottle of water and a warm layer or blanket before the session for the relaxation.
