Wednesday's 6-7.15pm with Oliver (11th Sept to 16th Oct)
The Yoga I offer is not limited to gymnastics as many modern forms are. I do not separate teachings for rejuvenation, teachings for breathing, teachings for strength and well-being, or more dynamic teachings. Every class tends to offer a selection of teachings from the whole spectrum of yoga making the sessions integrative and holistic. The aim being a taste of what is truly possible in any authentic Yoga practice.
The practices are in logical sequences which aim to establish a new understanding of the body, breath and mind allowing for new levels of holistic integration. The systematic form of yoga will appeal to those both with and without experience in modern forms of yoga as they offer an opportunity for you to begin or to deepen an existing practice by going step-by-step through different series of practical teachings.
Classes are generally accessible to anyone with an interest in yoga.
A typical class will include:
Jatti - body loosening and tension releasing exercises
Kriya - body and breath co-ordinated movements
Asana - simple sequences of body postures held for short periods of time
Pranayama - simple breath control exercises for health and balance
Nada - the yoga of sound, for healing, pranayama and for meditation
Mantra - an extension of Nada above, to include working with sacred syllables such as the Pranava Om
Shava asana - a practice all in itself, from where we shall relax in a number of different ways
