There are many styles of yoga and many teachers, (and you are best to research and find which one would suit you best) but yoga is essentially the practice of linking the mind, body and breath. When practiced regularly, yoga can help to ease tension in the body and mind, stretch muscles, increase flexibility and ease of movement, enhance balance, improve breathing, develop strength and stamina, cultivate a focussed, calm mind, improve circulation, and much more. Many people report feeling calm yet energised after a class and more aware of, or in touch with, their inner selves.
In each of my classes, we begin with meditation and centring, work through the physical part of the class where I give plenty of instruction and demonstration. I encourage everyone to work to their own level, with safety and feeling good given priority. I go around giving everyone individual attention. Finally, we finish with a guided relaxation.
I look forward to welcoming you to class soon!
