I decided to do this class with the thought of people returning to yoga after a break, students and even for those with some ailment although I like to discuss this area firstly. We gently introduce yoga postures, breathing and relaxation. Although it is not a prerequisite for the general classes, people have found that learning the basics and having an understanding of yoga helps them to move into the general classes at their own pace, with a lot more ease and understanding to become completely involved and aware in your practice of yoga - performing simple exercises, asanas and pranayama (breathing) absolutely correctly and with best intention We introduce yoga nidra (relaxation) to give us the full benefits of the yoga practise and deeper awareness of self.
Requires a good fitness level. Works at 2 levels or work at your own pace. Brings in the breathe awareness a part of yoga technique reduce unwanted tensions. Have a little challenge feel the strength, flexibility and toning for your whole body and mind.
