You do not already need to be flexible to do this class; this class is designed to increase flexibility and range of motion starting at wherever you are right now. Accompanied by soft music, the steady pace of this class can be a welcome contrast to the hectic pace of every day life.
This calming evening session is the perfect time to stretch and unwind from desk work and driving, and can be especially beneficial for anyone involved in physical pursuits such as crossfit, bootcamp, weight lifting, cycling, walking, golf and martial arts. The quieter nature of this session helps yogis to connect to higher levels of focus and concentration that are beneficial both on and off the mat.
Increasing flexibility can help to reduce the risk of injury and can have a positive impact in your every day life. This sweet and steady paced class is also designed to increase focus which can benefit practitioners in many areas of life, from being present with friends and family, to cultivating focus and calm during presentations and competitions.
What to expect:
The sweet and steady pace of this class makes it suitable for both beginners and experienced yogis; modifications will be offered to suit your current level of flexibility.
This class will begin with warm up poses and sun salutations before moving into flexibility focused sequences and long holds effective for deep stretching. The session concludes with a guided relaxation, breathing and meditation practice.
