Whether you're new to yoga or seeking a more peaceful and introspective practice, this Gentle Yoga class offers a nurturing environment that encourages self-care and relaxation. During this class, you will be guided through a series of gentle, flowing movements, designed to increase flexibility, improve posture, and enhance overall well-being. I prioritize comfort and safety, providing modifications and adjustments to meet the individual needs of each participant.
Through the practice of Gentle Yoga, you will learn to cultivate a deeper sense of mindfulness and inner awareness. The slow and deliberate movements, combined with conscious breathing techniques, help calm the mind and release tension from the body. As you move through each pose, you will be encouraged to listen to your body, and respect whatever limitations you may have on the day, with a sense of self-compassion and acceptance.
This class is suitable for all fitness levels and ages, making it an ideal choice for those recovering from injuries, managing chronic pain, or simply seeking a more gentle approach to their yoga practice. The emphasis is on listening to the body, finding balance, and embracing the present moment.
In Gentle Yoga I include standing postures, especially weight bearing poses that are good for bone strengthening and gentle sequences. Sometimes we use the chair for support or to understand how we can make more space to breathe, tone the muscles and stretch the connective tissues, for example in Trikonasana (see image). A selection of supine and prone poses are done on the mat, in a logical sequence of backbends and sidebends. At the end of the class, a deserving relaxation in Savasana completes the practice.
The benefits of Gentle Yoga class extend beyond the physical realm. Regular practice can lead to reduced stress levels, improved sleep quality, enhanced flexibility, increased strength, and a greater sense of overall well-being. It is a practice that invites you to slow down, recharge, and tap into your inner peace.
Join the Gentle Yoga class and embark on a journey of self-discovery, self-care, and rejuvenation. Whether you're looking to stretch, devote time to self-care or simply seeking an hour of your day to yourself, this class offers a supportive community and a nurturing space to help you nourish your body, mind, and soul.
