Deep Relaxation Class
Relaxation should be the easiest of things to do. But in reality it is an art. The ability to relax consciously and at will is a wonderful skill to have. The Yoga In Daily Life System incorporates relaxation into every class, acknowledging the importance that it has in balancing and nurturing the body. Emphasis is also laid on relaxing during the postures and between postures.
In this class we start with some harmonising and releasing stretches/postures followed up with a guided Deep Relaxation (aprox 30 minutes).
At the heart of our Yoga School are our “Classic Yoga” classes taught in the Newstead centre for the last 20 years. For ongoing physical health, inner harmony and balance, all age groups and abilities are welcome. The pace and content of the class on a particular day may vary according to the abilities of those attending.
A challenging class for those wishing to deepen and strengthen their practice. These exercises, develop flexibility and strength of the body, mind and breath and may include some inverted postures, focusing on levels 4 and 5 of the Yoga in Daily Life system. These classes are open to all, and our trained instructors will assist and advise you where appropriate.
