You will be sent a health form and disclaimer which can be signed online or printed out and handed to me. I’ll then begin with a thought of the day which we may discuss before moving on to some gentle exercises designed to stretch and strengthen and then I’ll finish off with a guided meditation.
The 8 limbs of yoga practiced in Hatha Yoga are Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing), Yamas (restraints), Niyamas (observances), pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyani (meditation), and Samadhi (absorption). These limbs help us to create balance and unite opposites. Yoga isn’t associated with any form of religion and the learner can choose to just practice the asanas and pranayama. Although it’s recommended for true life changing transformation to incorporate all of the teachings (which is always a work in progress)!
Did you need to know how to drive a car before you had lessons? The goal of yoga isn’t about becoming the most flexible, strongest, fittest or fast With continual practice of course, it will build up flexibility, stamina, strength both in mind and body. During your sessions you will work with your body’s current capabilities and learn the art of listening to your needs.
Movement is GOOD for you! Yoga specifically not only helps to calm the CNS, mind and expand the lungs which is great for those with respiratory issues, anxiety, nerves and stress related symptoms but it also tones the muscles, looks after the joins, ligaments and bones. There are tons of reason why yoga is good for you but come and see for yourself.
The studio which comfortably fits 18, with social distancing now accommodates 9 students.
Everyone is asked to wear a mask on entry and exit of the building (unless exempt) but NOT on the mat as this isn’t healthy.
There are hand sanitisers, and windows and doors left open to help with ventilation.
Students are asked to turn up on time to avoid congregating in the hallway and to leave in a 1 by 1 format to aid distancing.
All students will be asked for their contact details so I can keep up with track and trace protocols.
