These gentle hatha yoga classes are suitable for all ages and abilities, especially those wanting to improve flexibility and mobility gently. They aim to help you recover strength and stamina, and improve balance, co-ordination and confidence. The emphasis is on correct alignment and posture which can help relieve low back and joint pain, and so is suitable even for those with arthritis. The classes also teach breathing and relaxation techniques to help you enjoy the stress-relieving benefits of a calmer, positive yogic outlook on life.
Blocks and belts available. Please bring your own yoga mat if possible. For exact dates please contact Lesley directly.
