Yoga for Hips and Lower Backs

9.30am to 11.30am on Sunday 16th December 2018 at Donyatt Village Hall, on A358 at TA19 0RG

Starting with gentle stretches that warm up and release tight backs and lower hips we will then move into some more dynamic poses that bring strength into the legs and core, whilst encouraging the spine to lengthen.   Once the body has warmed up we will explore some gentle backbends and encourage the hips to further let go with some yin yoga.  The session will finish with a deep guided relaxation to allow the back to completely rest and absorb the benefits of the practice.

The cost is £15, booking is essential as spaces are limited. Places are only confirmed on receipt of payment.

 

New Year Detox and Revitalise Yoga

Detox and declutter your mind and body with this energising workshop, which will incorporate breathing exercises that revitalise the body and boost energy levels.  We will move into flowing yoga sequences involving plenty of twisting poses that squeeze the internal organs, helping the body eliminate and release toxins.  Having warmed up the body and stoked our inner fire, we will then hold some deeper Yin Yoga poses to encourage the body and the mind to further open up, before finishing with a guided meditation and relaxation. This workshop will help you harness your mental strength and will power so you can accomplish your resolutions.

As the winter nights continue gently ease out tight tense muscles with slow flowing stretches and restorative yoga poses.  Using calming breathing techniques we will soothe the body and quieten the mind.  The session will end with a soothing yoga nidra (a guided yogic sleep), which will leave you feeling calm and rested, all ready to go to bed!!

You will need some previous knowledge of yoga, though you don’t need to be an experienced yogi to join in.  If you have attended a few beginners classes you will be fine.

Future Candlelight Yoga events will take place in the new year, please email me to let me know if you’re interested in attending a session.
