What to expect Classes are facilitated in the Sivananda hatha yoga tradition with a concluding relaxation (savasana). 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 practice class consists of:
  • pranayama (breathing exercises)

TIPS

  • ensure your device is fully charged and in airplane mode, or close apps with notification bings
  • set your device in landscape orientation facing the long side of your mat about 2m away
  • get the cooperation of family and pets to leave you undisturbed
  • have your mat, cushion and blanket ready
  • wear leggings or trackies with an elasticated waist
  • warm top and socks to put on for relaxation
  • best not to eat for two hours beforehand but if you have energy issues some fruit juice would be ok
