Yin Yoga with energy healing 

Monday evenings  6:30-7.45 pm with Leslie Saglio.  

Yin is a deep, mindful and meditative practice, that involves resting in simple, accessible postures for an extended period of time. Energetically, Yin helps regulate the energy flow, enhancing the flow of Chi (Life Force Energy), in the body. It is the perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (Yang) styles of yoga. Yin yoga targets deeper tissues such as the ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body including the hips, pelvis and lower spine.

Energy healing brings a deep experience of peace and calm, working in the energy field of the body as well as the physical body. It works on many levels: physical, emotional and mental. When we are relaxed we become more balanced with more energy and are able to restore our bodies natural healing abilities, while improving and maintaining health. The small and intimate group classes are suitable for all levels.

£14 per drop-in class, £10 concessions.

Hatha Yoga with Ying

Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 9.15-10.45 am  (please note the Monday morning class is only until the end of February)

Hatha Yoga is a life practice which ensures the evolution of the human individual. We initially use simple, set forms derived from the natural and human worlds, leading to sequential development of asana (posture) linked by vinyasa (fluid movement of body and breath). This culminates in the inner stability embodied in inverted postures and upright sitting, and the practical experience of meditation. These small-group classes are suitable  for all including beginners; personal adaptations are made where required.Mornings are traditionally the best time for the practice of Hatha Yoga, so Ying’s classes are offered in the mornings.

For more information on her Hatha Yoga classes, phone Ying on 07917 770478.

Drop-in classes, £14 per session; £10 concessions, pay at the class.

 

Hatha Yoga with Sophie Clyde

Tuesdays 6.30 pm -7:45 pm 

Sophie’s classes create freedom in the body and mind, allowing you to soften and experience expansive stillness. She brings extensive anatomical knowledge and bio-mechanical understanding of alignment to her instruction, allowing students to open in ways they didn’t think they could!

While challenging people to re-awaken their muscles and work tenaciously, she supports students in cultivating deep physical awareness with an underlying emphasis on self-care and the therapeutic benefit of each pose. Fluid, dynamic sequencing is balanced with restorative postures, and students are encouraged to move with full breath and uplifting intention.

Mysore Ashtanga Self Practice with Lauren Munday

Thislauren 2 is the traditional way of learning the Ashtanga Yoga system, named after the town in India where its Guru, Sri Krisna Pattabhi Jois developed and taught the method. Mysore self-practice focuses on teaching each student individually within a group setting. The student works at their own pace and receives adjustments and guidance from the teacher when appropriate.

Beginners

If you are new to self-practice or any kind of yoga, you’ve come to the right place!  Mysore style self-practice is a great way to start your journey.

All newcomers learn a very straightforward, flowing sequence known as surya namaskar or the sun salute followed by some seated, breathing exercises and a relaxation. Your first practice will be between 30 and 45 minutes depending on how much time you have; and from then it will grow at a pace to suit you.
