This one hour class is suitable for beginners and intermediate students. Every 5 weeks the focus of the class will change. Every class will include breath-work, sun salutations, balance poses and yoga Nidra (relaxation).
A strong core is key to a healthy back. Many of the yoga poses increase core strength. The first 5 weeks we will focus on how you can use your core to keep you back safe and where to concentrate on.
Sometimes tight hamstrings or hips can pull on the lower back when your hips are tilted and cause pain and tension on your muscles. These classes will show you how to ensure stability on the core and then open up the hips.
Last weeks concentration is on your upper body. This sequence is good for any neck stiffness and by opening the chest our posture can improve, and tension headache can disappear.
This will build up your strength and flexibility gradually in a safe way in 15 weeks. This will give you good foundation to practise yoga either in classes or start a home practise.
Yoga will relax you mind and reduce stress levels, and you will learn to release tension and by that gain more energy.
The cost for the whole term (15 classes from 3rd September to 10th December) is £75
