All classes start with a few moments of breath awareness or breathing exercises. We then move on to warm ups for joints and muscles which are designed to prepare our bodies for the class. We do standing poses and sequences first to get the whole body working together and to build strength and improve balance, and then move to the floor to work on flexibility and deeper stretches. Each class includes the 4 movements of the spine – side bend, rotation, extension of the front and the back of the spine – and work for the hips and shoulders. At the end of the class there is a guided relaxation to allow the effects of the practice to be absorbed by the body and mind.
After class they say…..
“It’s like a sigh that wasn’t there before…”
“I feel like I have been oiled….”
“My body is purring…”
