Yoga is for everyone, the classes above allow you to work at a level that's comfortable for you.
Classes are an hour and a half. They include;
Somatic yoga flows and yoga positions
Chanting mantra and meditation.
All of the weekly classes integrate the Gentle Somatic Yoga flows. The multilevel yoga explores more dynamic movements and the gentle yoga offers a softer approach. If you are unsure which class to try please do get in touch and we can discuss which one may be best for you.
~Wear loose comfortable clothing for example; tracksuit, t-shirt etc, generally yoga is done barefoot.
~Leave 1½ - 2 hours after eating before coming to class so you will be comfortable during the movements.
~If you have a mat please bring it along, I do have some spare mats and blankets for students to borrow.
~Bring along a blanket or warm clothing for the meditation and relaxation.
~Please advise me at the start of class of any medical conditions, injury, pregnancy etc.
During my classes I hope to facilitate people to move safely and enjoyably, to find a deep connection within themselves and leave feeling nourished and stretched.
Bringing the focus of our attention to the Heart centre, our spiritual home, our experience during the class is one of staying connected and present. (Heart meditation)
The movement practice of somatic yoga brings us to a beautiful awareness of ourselves and the potential to bring more ease and range of movement within the body. I like to have different themes to the classes to keep them fresh and inspiring.
The classes have a friendly atmosphere, everyone enjoying sharing the experience together, so the energy in a class is a very healing happy place where we smile often.
Towards the end of the class I often sprinkle thoughtful readings to contemplate and gentle music where appropriate to create a relaxing atmosphere. During the relaxation calming sound instruments are frequently used (bowls and chimes) to experience a deeper connection and peace.
The class tends to follow this structure:
opening chants, warm ups, movement practice including somatic flows and traditional yoga postures, deep relaxation, breathing practices, meditation and closing chants and prayers.
When the opportunity arises we go outside, enjoying our yoga practice with the earth, sun and gentle wind, uniting our practice with nature. A wonderful inspiring experience leaving us full of vitality. All the class venues have beautiful outside spaces.
On the days we are inside, the halls have large windows and french doors that overlook the forest, giving us a lovely view of the outside.
