Weekly public classes – Thursdays
From 12th May 2022, I will be taking weekly yoga classes at:
Jennett’s Park Community Centre, 1 Tawny Owl Square RG12 8EB;
- Thursdays, 7:30pm to 8:30pm GMT (1hr).
- The classes are for beginners as well as intermediates.
Every class is 1hr (60 mins) long and consists of a warm up. Perhaps neck postures, relaxation posture or child posture. Each of these are deliberately introduced to enable every student to begin the class by focusing within their own body and prepare the mind and the body for postures that follow.
There are laying down postures, kneeling postures, standing postures, sometimes inversions (half-hand stands, half or full shoulder stands). There is always a pranayama (breathing) session and I focus on one of the four pranyamas that I feel deliver the most towards health of the respiratory system, quietening the mind and allowing complete relaxation within the body.
Every session also finishes with at least 5 to 10mins worth of relaxation posture (shavasana) and guided meditation.
My objective with every class is to make sure that all students get a good range of movement, stretching, flexing and relaxation. Every class has a range of postures and most of them will have a combination of visual and verbal guidance. I tend to use verbal guidance simply because that allows all my students to focus on listening and doing the postures. They do not need to continue to look at their screen all the time. I know that this style of teaching gives a lot more ability to focus on my students behalf. They get clear and detailed instructions and this enables them to work their postures to their ability.
My sessions are drop-in sessions so please just come along. There is no need to contact me about attending.
The cost for the one hour session is £10.00 payable on the day.
