BEGINNER HATHA YOGA

Mondays 6.15 PM – 7.30 PM

Start your yoga journey with beginner Hatha yoga.   Classes will begin with some Pranayama (breath work) to arrive, settle and ground you, connecting your mind with your breath.  I will then guide you through a nourishing warm up followed by a beginner asana practice (postures) to improve your flexibility, stability, strength and muscle tone. The classes will finish with a guided meditation and a guided restorative savasana (relaxation).
As classes progress, I will teach you Ujjayi breath, an ancient yogic breathing technique. Ujjayi breath helps us ease in and out of postures when we are practicing yoga dynamically repeating the movements helping us to synchronise the breath with the movements and also whilst statically in postures, holding the pose for a certain number of breath cycles, helping us to focus on our breathing. It also helps us to deepen and lengthen the breath having a balancing effect on the cardiovascular system, increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood, nourishing the body.
I will also gradually integrate some chanting and I will initially teach you how to chant Om which you can use as a tool in your own self practice to reduce stress and anxiety, detoxify the body and improve concentration amongst lots of other benefits.

Themed Hatha Yoga Class (some previous experience in yoga is necessary)

Mondays – 7.45 pm – 9.00 pm

Classes will be focused around a particular theme or element each week and will begin with some pranayama (breath work) to ground and settle you on the mat and connect your mind with your breath followed by a nourishing warm up leading into an energising asana practice (postures). A cool down will then lead into further pranayama techniques to calm the body in preparation for a guided meditation to control and/or quieten the mind.  The focus each week will be on a different meditation technique such as a visualisation, a mantra (a word repeated to aid concentration), chanting (focusing on internal sound -nada) and the chakras (a wheel or vortex of energy) to connect with your inner-essence and cultivate feelings of joy, peace and happiness.  A  guided, restorative savasana (relaxation) will conclude the class.

Chair Yoga

Thursdays – 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm

This adaptive form of yoga is great for older adults who cannot easily get down to the ground and builds flexibility, strength and stability, muscle tone and confidence and will improve the functioning of every system in the body.  Practicing yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system, thereby calming the body by lowering the heart rate and deepening and slowing the breathing rate and regulating blood pressure and blood sugar levels, bringing the body back into balance (homeostasis) not only on a physical level but also on an emotional, mental and spiritual level.

Chair yoga is also a great way to make new friends and engage and connect with other people building a community who are able to support one another at a time when a lot of vulnerable adults are shielding and may be experiencing feelings of loneliness and isolation.
