ONE TO ONE SESSIONS If you are just starting yoga, private tuition will give you the best start you can possibly have… and if you are a long term practitioner this approach will give you fresh inspiration and insight into your practice. For older, stiff or recuperating people very gentle, possibly chair-based, exercises bring fresh flexibility and vitality

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Traditional Hatha Yoga Class 
Read more about the Sivananda tradition

– 90 minute class
– for people who have basic fitness and/or some yoga experience
– range of ability and experience easily accommodated

What to expect Classes are facilitated in the Sivananda hatha yoga tradition with a concluding 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 practice class consists of:
  • pranayama (breathing exercises)
  • surya namaskar (sun salutation)
  • asana (yoga postures) which are held
  • final relaxation

Yin Yoga Class
read more about Yin Yoga

– 90-minute class
– best suited to people with a mindful outlook, whatever the level of physical ability
– counter-indicated for people with diagnosed depression or anxiety who typically need a more physically active class

What to expect a time of letting go, physically and mentally, and it’s good to have a readiness to sit with the uncomfortable, peeling away layers of resistance with each exhale. Guidance given on how best to prop your body and alternatives for you. You will feel deeply stretched and rested, floaty and de-focalised. Please bring some fruit or a small snack and water to have afterwards, especially if you are driving.

The practise consists of:

  • some gentle yoga movements initially
  • breath awareness using the yogic breath
  • postures supported with props and held for 3 – 5 minutes

Yoga for Runners

An hour class to warm up and stretch before Running Club. Also suitable for people who want a dynamic more ‘exercise’ approach.

Fiona also offers 1-1s and small group private tuition (click for more info) in Devon.  I teach adults of all levels of experience and fitness.

Read a little bit about Fiona (Sundari), the teacher, and the approach.

 What to bring

  • loose trousers that cover all your legs with an elasticated waist
  • warm top and socks to put on for relaxation
  • we have blankets but you might like to bring your own
  • best not to eat for two hours beforehand and avoid drinking water in class
