Service Description

This class is designed for anyone new to yoga; returning to a yoga practice after a break; or managing an an injury, issue or limitation who is seeking the space, time and focus to feel more at ease and present to simply what is - on both a physical and mental level. The class can be taken entirely or partially using a chair with alternative options given for the poses and exercises. Each class is gently guided, infused with genuine warmth and absolute inclusivity - you are encouraged to do as much or as little as feels appropriate on any given day and to really tune into your body and breath.   The aim of somatics yoga is to foster a closer relationship with the body. Moving more slowly with gradual exploration offers an opportunity to alleviate habitual patterns which contribute to tightness and restriction in the muscles and fascia and restrict the body's ability to move freely yet with stability and integration. The loosening of stress held in the tissues is more easily achieved with patient repetition which gradually invites ease and facilitates more functional movement. This class is mostly floor based but will from time to time include some standing and balancing poses. Simple mantras, meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises) are incorporated in line with the monthly dharmic theme. The chosen theme inspires and elaborates the practice of yoga with contextualised reference to yogic philosophy and Hindu mythology. Every class is rounded off with a deep relaxation to allow body and mind to assimilate the practice and absorb all the benefits of the class.
