I run three Mixed Ability Hatha Yoga classes – these are suitable for all levels of ability including beginners. Both men and women are welcome to attend. There is no need to book for these, or any of my adult classes, as they operate on a drop-in basis and they run on the following days and times:
- Wednesdays: 9.30am to 10.30am, Europa Gymnastics Centre
- Fridays: 9.30am to 10.30am, Europa Gymnastics Centre
- Fridays: 7.00pm to 8.00pm, Becket Sports Centre
What to expect from my Hatha Yoga classes?
I try to keep all my classes fun, friendly and lighthearted. As I can often have a wide range of abilities within each class I make sure to offer options or modifications within each posture so that people can work at their own pace and within their own ability.
In our Hatha Yoga practice we open with a calming breath focus, some seated warm-up postures, a Sun Salutation sequence, standing postures – including Yoga Balances and Warrior Postures, seated and supine postures and time for a guided meditation during Savasana, or relaxation. We focus on building strength, restoring flexibility, connecting with our breathing, time for relaxation all while keeping our minds engaged in the present moment. We hold postures for a number of breaths to encourage focus and concentration and all together it creates a kind of moving meditation. The controlled pace of a Hatha Class makes it suitable for all abilities.
