This class represents Hatha Yoga as it is being taught in India where I started to learn about Yoga.
The practice begins with breathwork. After a gentle warm up we progress to Asana practice. Traditional Hatha Yoga includes static poses which are usually being held between 5 and 8 deep breaths so that students can explore it, control the breathing, achieve stillness and stay present. The class will end with guided relaxation or meditation. Beginners and regular Yoga practitioners are welcome as different options and modifications will be offered.
Gentle Yoga / Yoga for Cancer / Yoga for Digestive Health
Gentle Yoga class with focus on interoception (how the movement feels). The class is suitable for everyone who enjoys slow and mindful practice leading to deep relaxation and rest. If you are a cancer patient, cancer survivor or a cancer patient carer this class will offer you a safe place to practice, deal with some side effects of the treatment, changed body image or emotional implications of living with cancer. Practice will also include breathing techniques and postures arising from the belly area to allow you to connect to this vital part of our body and support digestive system function. Whilst honouring your body you will be safely guided through the practice with a choice to take a break whenever you need it. Majority of the class will be on the ground but we will also practice sitting or standing. To attend the class you should be comfortable to lay on your back and independently come back up to standing position.
