WHAT MAKES ‘GENTLE YOGA’ DIFFERENT?
I meet many people who want to enjoy the benefits of yoga but fear that they won’t manage a regular class
Sometimes it’s a concern that it might be too strong or too fast
Other times the biggest challenge is sitting on the ground, or indeed getting up and down from the ground
If this sounds familiar then Gentle Yoga is an ideal solution for you
In this class we don’t leave anything out, we just approach it in a gentle which makes it safe, comfortable and accesssible for all. During the class you will enjoy practicing key elements of yoga including breathing, physical exercise and relaxation.
Here’s some things unique to this class:
* lots of gentle movement to free up all the joints
* getting up and down off the floor is kept to a minimum
* for seated exercises we sit comfortably on chairs instead of the floor
* for standing exercises you have the option of using the wall or chair for support
* we take our time and allow everyone to move at their own pace
If you’re worried that it ‘won’t be enough’ it may surprise you that working in a gentle way can still work your body hard! Indeed slow controlled movement can even get you working more effectively and has a great impact on your body.
During class you will also often have the option to increase or reduce the intensity using variations.You will be encouraged to listen to your body and learn to do what works best for you.
If in doubt, I invite you to come for a drop-In class first to give it a go
