CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Traditional Hatha Yoga Class 

– 90 minute class
– for people who have basic fitness and/or some yoga experience
– range of ability and experience easily accommodated
– £8 or 5 class card £35; benefit £4 (please contact)

What to expect Classes are facilitated in the Sivananda hatha yoga tradition with a concluding yoga nidra deep relaxation. You can expect to work physically hard in a moderate way. You will be encouraged to listen to your body to know how far you can go on the day. The session includes savasana (lying down) between postures, and focus on the breath. The classes are suitable for different levels of experience and mobility through more/less testing variations and longer/shorter holding.

The 90-minute practice class consists of:
  • introductory mantras (brief)
  • pranayama (breathing exercises)
  • surya namaskar (sun salutation)
  • asana (yoga postures) which are held
  • final relaxation (like a mini-nidra)
  • concluding mantras (students can learn these and join in)
Gentle Yoga Class

– 75 minute class
– for people who can get down onto the mat, kneel and or sit on the floor
– OR want to sit in a chair for all or part of the class
– £7 or 5 class card £30; benefit £3.50 (please contact)

What to expect The session uses a sequence of gentle movements designed to bring flexibility to the joints and free the flow of energy in the system. You can expect to move your limbs in manageable and mindful ways, listening for what feels right on the day. You will increase lung capacity, vitality, flexibility, mental clarity and your sense of well -being deep. You will feel deeply relaxed with mental clarity.

The 75-minute practise consists of:

  • introductory mantras (brief)
  • breath awareness using the yogic breath
  • simple seated (either on mat or chair) or kneeling movements coordinated with the breath
  • final relaxation (like a mini-nidra)
  • concluding mantras (students can learn these and join in)
