Beginners Yoga in the Park

Find out why it's ok not to be able to touch your toes and practise yoga!
Join me in Queens Park (location tbc) for a simply lovely practice of gentle yoga postures in tune with our breathing in the safe and joyous outdoors. Feel freer, longer, lighter, more relaxed. Bring a yoga mat, a yoga belt/dressing gown belt/long scarf that isnt too stretchy, blanket and cushion for deep relaxation, layers. We will practise in bare feet on our mats.

Suitable for complete beginners or those wishing to reconnect with their practice after a long break.

Beginners Yoga Course

Welcome to feeling better in body, mind and self! Let my experience guide you to changing how you feel, how you move and how you focus for the better. I draw from over 19 years experience in yoga, 5 element qigong, breathwork, meditation and deep relaxation, with 10 of those years devoted to working with beginners. This course is the ideal place to start a yoga practice or refresh your practice after a long break, pregnancy or injury. An enjoyable mix to free up the body, boost our central nervous system, bring clarity and deep rest (yes yogic sleep is as important as toe touching here!) so we function and importantly FEEL better, brighter, calmer. Towards the end of each course, we will focus on sun salutation options, ensuring safe practice for all, so that we have a practice tailored for different times of our life / changes in our body.

The sessions are gentle, encouraging, welcoming, dare I say it, fun! I offer plenty of options for all bodies and cannot wait to support you to improve flexibility, ease away stress and become more present. I share a little of the philosophy of yoga, and if you have any questions, asl away, I look froward to talking with you further!
This course will give you a foundation of practice in key postures, breath work and simple meditation, and downloads. There is also the optional extra of supporting beginners videos on demand to embed your home practice, helping you maintain better flexibility, improved tone, relaxed body and calm mind for only £12 per month (1st week free).
Each course needs 10 participants to run, so bring a friend and get signed up!
