About This Lesson
Gentle/Therapeutic is growing in popularity(often our busiest most recently) as more people recognise the need for calm, balance and mental health care.
Classes are based on Yoga Therapy and wellness at all levels- body, energy, emotions, mind and spirit. It involves therapeutics for joints and muscles, helping with injury and prevention with particular emphasis on back care but also much more. Practices induce relaxation with a variety of de- stressing techniques, deep awareness, breath, gentle movements, stretches and stillness. The bodies innate healing ability is optimised through many tools of Yoga. To name a few in addition to the more familiar asana, practices include, somatics, yin postures, restorative, yoga nidra, mudra and meditation all to assist in bringing a state of equilibrium and bliss!
Expect a different focus each week and sometimes more specialised themes such as Chakras or Ayurveda. These ALL level classes are good for those who find it difficult to be active, those who do powerful yoga, or have exhausting lives and need to unwind and balance, beginners and those with specific health issues or suffer from insomnia, anxiety or depression. Find optimal functioning of all systems of the body.
