Zen Yoga combines three elements: mindfulness, physical alignment and the flow of energy in the body.
A Zen Yoga class combines Hatha Yoga with Zen practice, using mindfulness to increase your awareness of your body, mind and breath, along with gentle movements that allow the internal energy to flow. We practice postures, meditation, breathing and hand mudra’s which open the meridians in the body to improve health and wellbeing. There is a combination of movement to warm the body and relaxing and gentle postures to help you unwind, finishing with deep relaxation. The aim is to leave you feeling calm, relaxed and connected.
Restorative yoga includes some gentle yoga stretches along with deeply restful poses, using props to help you unwind and relax. It offers you a space to rest, heal and calm the nervous system, encouraging the muscles to soften and gently open, which improves flexibility, releases stress and helps lift the mood. The aim is to leave you feeling calmer and more at ease.
I offer a slow, gentle class, in small groups, giving you the time and attention you need. The cost of this class reflects the size of the group, the care, time and attention you receive and the props needed to support your practice.
