Gentle yoga is for anyone who has never done yoga before or for those that wish to return to yoga. It’s a soft and gentle introduction to our bodies and the yoga postures (asanas) that enable our bodies to move and open up. We also connect ourselves back to our breath, which also helps to soften mind and body.
“Come along to gently connect to your bodies and allow it to softly move and become more comfortable from within.” Catrina
Restorative yoga is a beautiful contrast to the more active forms of yoga; it’s the yin within the yang. It is as it says to restore, bringing us back to our centring point. We learn to take time out and relax within each Asana, whilst having the support from bolsters, cushions, blocks and blankets to help soften the body, to breathe into the body to release any stored up tension. Once we have mastered the relax and surrender of the body with this support and to breathe, we come into this calming place so that we can restore and heal the body and mind from within.
“So come along, breathe, relax and restore.” Catrina
Gentle and restorative yoga are perfect for those with health problems. Please check the class descriptions for more information about each class and for the level of function required to take part in these classes i.e. being independently mobile, able to independently get on and off the floor and able to independently manage stairs with the aid of a hand rail. If your level of function is limited by a health problem that you feel might prevent you from being able to take part in a class, please give us a ring and we will be able to advise you further. We believe that yoga is for all and if you’re unable to take part in a class, as you are unable to move or transfer unaided, we will be able to arrange one to one yoga sessions for you in our fully accessible downstairs studio with a teacher who has specific training in yoga for those with long term health conditions and reduced mobility.
Please look at our class schedule for details of all our classes and book yourself in and pay online with our easy to use online booking system.
Please register via Book Online or alternatively, feel free to pop in, say hello and sign up in the studio. We look forward to meeting you.
