- Physio Yoga Flow for Beginners - 07/11/2017 - 12/12/2017
Physiyoga techniques empower you to find freedom in your body and mind
Physiyoga classes are underpinned by 10 years of anatomical study and physiotherapy practice. They are specifically designed so that you can address any muscular imbalances, sports injuries, tight or weak area in the body. They can enhance sporting performance, focus , help with chronic pain, back pain and general musculoskeletal complaints. The classes work with breath , meditation, myofascial release and deep relaxation. I tend to add spikey balls, therabands and lots of fun adapted yoga and physiotherapy techniques so that you can gain the most from your yoga. I also tend to include some “pilates” type exercises to enhance stability as well as flexibility and address spinal mobility issues . Classes are alignment based, but with a strong meditative focus. The classes are basically “yoga medicine ” .. so come and try !
This beginners course will introduce you to Physiyoga techniques empowering you to find freedom in your body and mind .
- The Friday Night Chill Out - 01/12/2017 - 02/12/2017
Warming Winters evening of yin, restorative and yoga nidra
Come and try a warming mix of Restorative, Yin and Yoga Nidra (Deep Yogic Sleep) . These restorative sessions help to balance a fast lifestyle (something, I know all about!) and have an enormous capacity to help heal stress related physical and mental symptoms.
What is the class like?
You will still stretch, but you will fully relax in the stretch, so that tension can slowly be released. Because the body and mind relax, literally becoming softer, you also create space to get in touch again with your natural qualities of compassion and understanding of others and self. Your body can feel soft, warm, supple and glowing..feeling so comfortable you hardly notice the physical body. As your mind sits back, you can sort of watch everything from a distance, with a smile on your face , knowing everything is okay, exactly as it is. Nothing to accept or reject.
Do you remember what it is like to rest in your true nature? Realize you are not separate from life, any more than the air in a balloon is different than the air surrounding it, or the wave separate from the sea.
The Chill Out Session benefits, summarised:
-Deeply relaxes the body
-Stills the mind
-Improves capacity for healing and balancing
-Balances the nervous system
-Boosts the immune system
-Develops qualities of compassion and understanding toward others and self
-Enhances mood states
This Friday Night Chill Out, we will be inviting our bodies and mind to surrender. To let go of worries and tension, to create space for softness in our body and soul. The class will start with some cleansing pranayama ( breath techniques) and then we will move into a kidney meridian yin yoga sequence, finishing the class with a long yoga nidra to deeply relax and renew our energy levels.
Yin yoga involves longer holds than normal, but allows us notice sensations in the body and fluctuations of the mind. It allows us to enter into state of awareness and stillness, witnessing moments of lightness and calm. The body softens as the mind calms allowing us to come home to our inner state of lightness and calm.
