Gentle yoga to ease you out of the weekend and back into the week, we start slowly, with pranayama, connecting our body and mind using our breathe and concentration of body awareness to bring ourselves into that meditative space. Then building into some stronger standing postures before bringing it all back down to some deep forward stretching and inversions to get us ready for bed, perfect for a good nights sleep.
This class is suitable for beginners, physical rehabilitation, and those who like a gentle calm strong stretch.
