Slow Yoga was created to fulfil a demand for relaxation and mindfulness yoga, for people of any age or gender.The classes are run by Sally Turner who has been a yoga practitioner since her early 20's. It was only recently, after an extreme ski accident when she sustained serious injuries to her neck, that Sally discovered Vinyasa Krama Yoga. (Similar to currently popular Viniyoga and Yoga Flow systems)
It is interesting that this form of yoga has the same source as the more well-known Iyengar yoga and yet is so intensely different because of the focus on the breath in addition to the posture.
In Sally's classes you will be taught how to breathe again and will be given a series of gentle exercises which will cleanse and tone the body and help to clear the mind of stress and anxiety.
The classes are run by The WEA and cost approx 5.00 per session. However, they do require payment in advance. There is help for anyone on benefits. The next block of classes begins on 16th April for 6 weeks. You will need to contact Sally to find out about enrolment.
HOW TO FIND US
Park in the car park at Wilko's (Which is behind the building) . Then walk up a little one way road immediately to the left of the building (when you are standing in the car park looking at Wilco's) Half way up this little road there is a BLUE DOOR on the right in the side of the church, with a railing outside. This is the entrance to the Yoga. Walk in and head up the stairs to our lovely room on the first floor. NB There is a disabled chair lift, should you require it.
