Gentle yoga is focused on a more gentle approach to yoga postures (asanas) which gently flow through the session. It is suitable for those who prefer a more laid back session, for elderly people and those recovering from injuries.
Sessions offer a personal approach with an emphasis on mindfulness, breathing, strengthening both the body and the mind, increasing flexibility and developing balance and peace within.
You will receive guidance on how to practice and relax in each position, incorporate conscious breathing and progress comfortably at your own pace.
The approach is soft, overexertion and competitiveness are discouraged.
Benefits of gentle yoga:
- improves strength and body posture
- improves flexibility
- improves blood circulation
- improves coordination
- helping with stress and anxiety
- improves mental clarity
- improves stress and pain management
I encourage you to practise slowly to be able to create a deep connection with your body and mind and to be able to relax fully in each posture without forcing yourself into discomfort.
every class offers:
~ Initial relaxation to release all the tension and busyness stored in the body and mind and prepare yourself for the practice of yoga
~ Breathing exercises (pranayama) helping you to develop correct breathing patterns
~ Practice of asanas (body postures) developing strength, flexibility and sense of balance
~ Final guided relaxation and meditation exploring mindfulness techniques and developing stillness of your body and mind
You will be cared for and supported throughout your yoga journey to be able to make a deeper connection with the practice.
This is a small class of max. 8 people, please book prior to attending.
Classes are kept small so everyone can receive the attention they need, gain all the benefits from the practice and feel valued.
