We recognise there is happiness and health to be found in regular exercise, but know that few in the community have an innate motivation to get out there and go-go-go!
It is with this in mind we have opted to create a social movement for people to have a laugh, chat with others and achieve some exercise goals at the same time.
How does it work?
Applying the secrets of three, this is where we know for some reason the human mind and body seems to respond to things done in threes; we have established a timetable which motivates you to do three activities a week over three-week blocks.
Each term runs for 9 weeks in total and multiple classes are offered in that time – members are required to book into a class (i) to help keep the number of participants to a comfortable level; (ii) we trick you, people tend to turn up to something that has been booked and paid for in advance!
This is a hybrid class that starts with a full hour of traditional hatha yoga practice. During which you will be led through a series of poses that work on all aspects of the practice (i.e. bending, twisting, balancing, inversions and relaxation/breathing techniques and etc).
In the second half of the class, students are to carry out up-to-an-hour of supervised, self-directed practice, and yes, you may leave before the hour is up too! Whether it is working on an existing sequence from the Ashtanga Tradition or postures that you have been trying to perfect or learn but are having difficulties with. This is the time to unwrap them in your practice and the teacher will guide you through the steps in making your practice more accessible to you.
Yoga For Strength and Toning is a class that focuses on the activation of various muscle groups to build strength and vitality in the body while toning and sculpting the major muscle groups. All postures and movements are taught carefully and mindfully in the class so as to prevent any injuries while allowing the body to heal from existing aches and pains. Having stronger muscular activation equals to less burden on the articulations and joints, so you can move more freely, with lightness and awareness.
Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
