Yoga for Wellbeing
A gentle Hatha style yoga class, suitable for all levels including beginners. Each shape or move will be an invitation rather than an instruction; no adjustments offered. Do what feels right for your own body at that given time. You will be encouraged to notice sensations in the body and arising thoughts and feelings. We will focus on the breath throughout the practice to help us focus and also calm the nervous system. And we end with a relaxation/ mindful meditation.
This encourages students to engage, enjoy and experiment with breath and posture. There is an amazing propensity to develop concentration and clarity when mind, breath and body work in synchronicity. By using the breath to help us pay attention we heighten our experience of how the postures feel, focusing less on how it looks and more on what it feels like; all the benefits without the need to achieve. Mindful Yoga is enjoyable, accessible and calming style of yoga that will bring strength, flexibility and clarity and help to develop an accepting ease in body and mind.
The session is suitable for beginners and those with some knowledge and will be enjoyable for more experienced yogis. Come with an open mind, a playful attitude, a mat, cushion or block and probably a blanket if we are outside. Expect an enjoyable session that will include, grounding, breathing, flow, balancing and relaxation.
