Note that there are no classes on Bank Holiday Mondays 6th or 27th May.
The cost for the term is £63 paid in advance for the Wednesday and Thursday classes. As there are two less classes for the Monday group due to the Bank Holidays in May, the cost for this class is £47.
You can come along for a taster session at any point during the term for a cost of £8.00, paying for the remainder of the term if you wish to continue.
Hatha Yoga classes
These classes consist mainly of Yoga asana (postures) with some breathing and meditative techniques. 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 Stretch Yoga (Restorative yoga)
The Gentle Stretch Yoga classes are based on a form of yoga called Restorative Yoga and consist of an hour of non-strenuous, supported yoga postures that are designed to gently stretch the muscles and deeply relax the nervous system. There are no "strong" postures requiring strength in the upper body or legs. Postures are supine, prone or seated using supports such as bolsters, blankets and yoga blocks to hold the body comfortably while we relax into the postures over a period of 5 - 10 minutes.
The class is appropriate for all levels including beginning students, seniors, or those who want the benefits of Yoga but feel a normal Yoga class would be too difficult for them. As well as those who just want some deep relaxation!
The size of the group is small to enable individual attention.
