Yoga For Beginners

Practice Right for You

Functional Yoga

The classes follow a functional approach to yoga. This is a gentle form which avoids practising “correctly” in favour of practising correctly for you

As a beginner, it’s especially important that you don’t force your body into strict positions, impose correct breathing or struggle to rein in your wandering thoughts

Instead you’ll use yoga to tune in to your mind and body to

  • release tension to move without strain
  • regulate your breath to soothe your emotions
  • calm your thoughts to enjoy inner peace

The Basics Of Yoga

Gravity : the key to standing tall

All actions elicits an equal and opposite reaction. Yielding to the pull gravity increases floor contact, perceived as pressure

We will explore how to use this sensation of pressure stimulate your anti-gravity muscles to

  • lengthen your spine
  • engage your core and
  • strengthen your limbs

letting you stand, sit and lie

  • tall
  • strong
  • and relaxed
Breathing: more than just air

Essential for supplying your cells with oxygen, breathing serves other crucial functions

Breathing & Emotion

Breathing is linked directly to emotion. How you breathe colours how you feel. And how your feel determines how you breathe

Stress-driven overbreathing creates muscle tension, tingling in the extremities, brain fog, anxiety and more

You’ll learn ways to slow down and regulate your breathing to relax your body, soothe your emotions and steady your thoughts

Breathing & Circulation

The heart efficiently drives nutrient-rich  blood to your tissues. But when it comes to fluid return it needs backup

The main muscle of breathing, the diaphragm, is a principle pump for drainage, preventing fluid accumulation and swelling and maintaining tissue nutrition

Through appropriate use of your diaphragm and core muscles you’ll be able to optimize your circulation and keep all your tissues and  nourished and tip-top

Movement: less effort, more gain

Movement is expressed in the body, but lives in the brain in the form or encoded motor programmes

Effective movement achieves your objectives efficiently, with minimal effort and minimal strain

Want to improve how you move? Learn new motor programmes that are more effective. Every time you move with awareness you replace old habits with new

Through mindful movement you’ll learn to use your body optimally to minimize wear and tear and free yourself from tension and pain

Relax: let your body lead

Yoga puts you in touch the natural dynamic processes within you which we understand as health

Health, not as a lack of disease, but a positive, living intelligence ever seeking balance, wholeness and wellbeing

Let go. Release the break. And let your body find its way naturally to healthy balance
