Description

What is the course about?

In this class, gentle classical yoga postures are combined with breathing and movement to energise you and help to de- stress the mind and body. Relaxation, meditation and visualisation are taught and practised. The emphasis is on everybody working at their own pace in a relaxed and non-competitive atmosphere. Please contact the department if you are concerned about suitability.

What will we cover?

The class will start with relaxation and joint movement exercises to prepare the body and mind for the classical yoga posture practice. The course is progressive, with various options and adaptations provided, and you'll be encouraged to work at your own level, taking rests whenever you need to. Some yoga equipment will be used to support practice.

This is an excellent course for people who are new to yoga and have limitations in movement, taught by an experienced, considerate, caring and kind teacher.

The teacher of this course is excellent. The work is varied and tackles all areas of the body and she is very careful to ensure that it is within the capabilities of each person. She makes it really easy by demonstrating mirror image which must be hard

This course has restored my confidence in my ability to do yoga, which I started 35 odd years ago and then stopped in my late 40's as I used to get queasy doing the exercises. I have so enjoyed this course that I have already signed up for the next term. I am hard of hearing and the teacher could not have been more supportive.

Great Class- - [The tutor] is the 'perfect' gentle yoga teacher- she's very experienced- quite gentle in herself, - she is kind and patient with all of her students- which is very needed for this kind of class--- It's a most enjoyable class- and Very welcome- for those that cannot do - even a beginners class - due to personal restrictions....
