Yoga is a unique offering ... “Yoga is a way to restore our lost wholeness, our integrity as complete human beings, by unifying the personality around a centre that is silent, unbounded, spacious and joyful” It's a way to balance the mind, the body and essence of you.  

By using Yoga Postures and the Breath we create a moving meditation (Vinyasa Yoga) to lift, relax or release your energy in subtle way, to allow you time to find the stillness in the pose with an intention to relax the mind whilst using the breath to calm the mind and ease the tension within.

We'll start with practice by tuning in, standing salutations, twists, folds, opening and allowing our energy to flow, increasing our awareness and finishing with seated relaxing postures including a mindful meditation to close.  We'll modify where we need to  ... we'll practice non-harming and be true to ourselves without pushing or forcing ourselves into postures we'll create space in the body and be true to ourselves during practice.

You will need:

•   A safe space to set up (not too close to furniture) so I can see you
•   The latest version of Zoom on your device
•   A Yoga Mat (or two if you need comfort)
•   A Cushion or a block if your hips are tight when seated.
•   A Belt or towel if you're unable to reach your feet or put you hands together behind your back
•   Comfortable Clothes - (no socks please)
•   Please eat or drink 45 to 30 mins before practice.

There are many types of yoga. Hatha (a combination of many styles) is one of the most popular styles. We will be practicing Vinyasa Yoga ... It is a more physical type of yoga rather than a still, meditative form. Hatha yoga focuses on pranayamas (breath-controlled exercises). These are followed by a series of asanas (yoga postures), which end with savasana (a resting period).

The goal during yoga practice is to challenge yourself physically, but not to feel overwhelmed. At this "edge," the focus is on your breath while your mind is accepting and calm.

• Improves posture. Working for long hours on a desk could not only hurt your spine but also make you feel tired at the end of the day.
• Increases flexibility.
• Builds muscle strength.
• Boosts metabolism.
• Helps in lowering blood sugar.
• Increases blood flow.
• Keep diseases at bay.
• Increases body awareness
•  Increases confidence and self-esteem.
