Hatha Yoga classes
These classes consist mainly of Yoga asana (postures) with some breathing and meditative techniques. The classes focus more on positional yoga practice rather than on Vinyasa flow. This means that although there will be a natural flow from one asana to the next, postures will be held for longer and there will be less continuous dynamic movement as is the case with Vinyasa Yoga.
The classes vary in content from week to week with options available that make the practice accessible for beginners as well as providing a challenge for more advanced students if they wish it.
All students receive individual attention according to their needs allowing students to work to their "comfortable maximum" if they wish but always following the Yogic principle of ahimsa, to do no harm to self or others.
Gentle Yoga classes
The term Gentle Yoga can be confusing as it tends to mean different things to different Yoga teachers. These classes consist of a mixture of warm up exercises and non-challenging Yoga postures. We will also practice meditative breathing exercises and restorative relaxation and Yoga nidra. The classes are suitable for all but will be particular useful for complete beginners and those who might find a standard class too physically demanding.
Please contact me to ensure a space is available first.
