Why practice yoga?
Yoga is a great way to improve your strength and flexibility as well as being a great stress reliever that has numerous health benefits:
- boosting the immune system
- preventing cartilage and joint breakdown
- protecting your spine
- improving circulation, balance and focus of attention
- and it also makes you happier and feel more relaxed!
Hatha flow or vinyasa yoga is the combination of asanas (poses) with breath and movement. It’s more dynamic than some yoga classes so it can feel more energetic and invigorating as well as giving the body a lovely stretch. My yoga classes often include some mindfulness techniques and end with a short time of guided relaxation.
Yoga is a form of exercise suitable for most people but if you have any specific conditions or injuries you’d like to discuss please get in touch and I can let you know if the class is suitable for you.
