Yoga for Active Bodies
Kenpo Karate room,Oliver Street
* This class is on Tuesdays from 12 Jan to 9 Feb, then back to Mondays from 15 Feb.
Whether you exercise or play sport regularly, or get active in your garden, keeping your body active helps keep you healthy on many levels. However, our sports and other activities can also lead to imbalances, strains and pains, or tightness.
This yoga class has a different focus each week, to help 'rebalance' your body with stretching, strengthening and/or recovery sequences. It targets the most common areas that get tight or weak due to physical activity, especially the core, hips, leg muscles, spine and shoulders. It is not overly strenuous, and you'll leave feeling looser, more relaxed and ready to face the week ahead.
Align & Flow
St Andrews church hall
Align & Flow features a balanced range of poses that we link together in flowing sequences and moving with our breath. This is also known as a 'vinyasa' style class. We also work in greater detail on the alignment of specific poses to build strengthen, endurance, flexibility and body awareness. The class format normally features a 'Sun Salute' inspired warm up, standing poses, and then a selection of back extensions, hip openers, forward bends and/or twisting poses, followed by relaxation.
Align & Flow is suitable for all levels, as poses can be tailored to individual need.
Kenpo karate room, Oliver Street.
*This class is on Wednesdays in January, and back to Thursdays from 4 February.
As the name suggests, this is the class to come to for a 'gentle' yoga experience. This popular class features mostly seated poses, focusing more on gentle mobility and stretching than it does on strength or endurance. Working through all your tight spots, such as the neck, shoulders, spine and hips, whilst taking care of our joints, with some balance and core poses as well. We keep focused on our breath and finish with relaxation. A great 'mindful movement' experience.
Suitable for ALL levels
The above classes are suitable for all levels of experience. If you can generally move OK (can you go from standing to sitting and back to standing unaided? Can you be on hands and knees?) you should be fine to attend these classes. The more you come along the easier it gets. If you're unsure, please contact me and I'll be happy to have a chat.
