Leisure centre classes will start promptly with time to clean your own space. The classes will be approx 40 mins with 10 mins each side for cleaning.

CLASSES

These will be beginners/mixed ability Yoga classes with emphasis on breathing and finding ease in movement. Exercise, through sun salutation movement and steady postures (shapes). There will be recovery time between postures and time at the end for relaxation.

Every body is different.

I will encourage you to focus on your practice and self enquiry, guide you into postures and through movements.
It is important that you listen to your body and try to find a balance between effort and not over-doing it and simply doing what ever feels appropriate on that day.
(it really is OK to just lay down and rest or do something different)

WHAT DO I NEED ?

You need your own yoga mat, especially at this time (Covid19).
If you do not have a mat I can lend a clean sanitized mat for the class - please contact me about this.

Wear loose and comfortable clothing.

It is better to practice in bare or grippy socked feet.

It's great to have a blanket for warmth in relaxation at the end of class - It can also be useful as a prop or for extra comfort.

If you know you need head and neck or a kneeling support please bring a cushion.

At this time I cannot provide any additional equipment. Bring anything for your own use that works for you.

On-line please bare in mind your environment and make yourself an as clear and quiet space as you can, to avoid knocking things onto yourself and being interupted by phones and noise from televisions.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT IN CLASS

In my classes you can expect to begin by settling down and 'checking in' with how you're feeling generally. This might inform how you approach the rest of your practice for that session.

I'll encourage you to focus on your breath through an exercise of gentle breath control and/or different postures with emphasis on breath.

We'll start moving with attention still brought towards the breath.

This may follow with other warm up movements.

Coming to our feet we will try a few rounds of a 'Sun Salutation' a set sequence of postures you'll get to know and may be able to navigate yourself through with ease given time and practise.

Moments of pause. Allowing the body to recallibrate.

A variety of standing positions, mindful movements and balance postures. Some of the positions might be familiar, traditional or modified Yoga postures.

Coming to the floor, lying or sitting for some more movement and postures.

Moments of pause.

Having taken the body through foward, side and back bending and into some twists you will be encouraged to make yourself as comforatble as possible, perhaps with your blanket over you for warmth and then the class as a whole will be invited to come to rest and allow the body time to absorb the activities of the session. Some cues for relaxation may be offered.

At this time (Covid19) there will be no hands on adjustments and no forceful breathing exercises.

Advanced practice for me is not balancing upside down on one hand on top of a mountain in £200 tights whilst taking a photo. - (go for it, if that's your thing!)

I teach advanced practice as learning to be in your body with all that is going on that day. Perhaps you'll learn some useful tools in simple breathing, movement and postural practices that could help you respond more skillfully to the challenges of daily life.

With that in mind. I think everyone can 'do yoga'
