Yoga is a practice for stilling the mind, for connection and seeing beyond limiting illusions and beliefs.
Calm the mind, lift the spirits, learn skills and practices to manage stress and anxiety alongside improving fitness, strength, stamina and flexibility with our online yoga community. Information about indoor face to face courses and workshops will be published on the website and on social media when it is safe and viable for them to restart.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, exhausted or experience chronic fatigue/ME, Mindful Yoga classes can support you to come back from a state of overwhelm. You do not need to be fit or flexible and you won’t break into a sweat!
If you experience anxiety, spend long periods of your day sitting or want to improve fitness, strength and flexibility, dynamic and energetic vinyasa yoga will get you moving, burn stress hormones and target tense and constricted areas such as the back, shoulders and hips. The physical benefits are essentially side effects, for the main aims of these classes too are to calm the mind and become present. Becoming more ‘in the moment’ can be particularly helpful for anxiety which focuses on what might happen in the future.
Breathe, pause, strip back what is no longer needed and improve health, fitness and wellbeing.
Classes are trauma sensitive and non-competitive. You are encouraged to come as you are and work where you are at.
