"The body benefits from movement and the mind benefits from stillness" Sakyong Mipham
A yoga flow class using creative sequencing and breath to open up your body and mind.
Using the breath and the bandhas to guide us on the mat we will work on themed sequences (hips, shoulders etc) often building up to a peak pose, closing with a yoga nidra relaxation.
This mindful yet energising practise is the perfect counterbalance to the busyness of life.
In all classes, I always offer modifications and props so you can tune in to what is best for you at any given moment and up your practices in kramas (stages). I encourage working with sensitivity and sensibility, always listening to your body and staying within your own ability and comfort zone, though we will explore your edges.
These classes are designed to be fun and social and the aim is to make the practise of yoga accessible and enjoyable.
All materials and props provided though you are welcome to bring your own if preferred. These classes are simulcast so if you cannot make it live, the option to join online or have a recording is also there.
