What I am sharing in more detail:

 

Gentle Hatha –Within this practice we will also incorporate many of the other forms of yoga (explained below), such as Breath Awareness, Pranayama, Visualisation, Concentration and Relaxation.

 

 

Pranayama (breathing exercises) – each pranayama technique has a direct influence on the mind, nervous system and body in different ways, some being more relaxing and others being more energising

Laya Yoga – concentration techniques to move energy so as to allow the energy to flow more freely, dissolving any energy blockages

Yin Yoga – Gentle yoga poses that focus on deeper opening/stretching and are held for 3 – 5 minutes

Restorative Yoga – Poses that focus on complete relaxation and are held for 3 – 10 minutes

Relaxation  – Techniques that help you move into a deep relaxation

Meditation – In a sitting or lying position, various techniques are practiced to help achieve a calm still state of mind

Mindfulness session – with Mo and Peter Henderson

Visualisation techniques 


Within each class I will explain the effects the yoga postures, breathing exercises and other practices have on your health and wellbeing, such as :
  • The health benefits you receive  (e.g. blood pressure,  hormonal balance, Menstration problems, thyroid, digestive issues, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia etc)
  • The beneficial effects on your nervous system. some practices can be very energising and some create relaxation.
  • The beneficial effects on your organs and glands.
  • The beneficial effects on your energy body. For example some practices have the ability to release any locked in tensions and energy blockages.  As we find this release, energy is able to move more freely as well as oxygen rich blood.
  •  An opportunity to explore your breathing and gain a deeper understanding of just how your breath is connected to your physical , emotional and mental wellbeing.
  • Though greater breath awareness and Pranayama we will bring more oxygen into the cells of our body. This supports cellular healing as well as detoxification of the cells.
