An Introduction to Traditional Yoga
A yoga class which caters for both beginners and intermediate yoga students. The class will begin with gentle stretching and conditioning exercises and some basic, simple yoga postures – all accompanied by mindful breathing. There will be a section which teaches how to use breathing to calm the mind and reduce stress. The class will finish with a relaxation or a meditation.
This class will present an introduction to the techniques and philosophy of Traditional Yoga, relatively unchanged by Western Influences. However where necessary, adjustments will be made to the postures and breathing to suit the needs of the students who attend. No previous experience is necessary although it is expected that those who attend will be able to participate in exercise both standing and lying down on a mat.
