Yoga reduces the physical effects of stress on the body. By encouraging relaxation and deeper breathing, yoga helps to lower the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Related benefits include lowering blood pressure and heart rate, improving digestion and boosting the immune system as well as easing symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, asthma and insomnia.
I offer friendly, fun and welcoming classes open to both men and women of all abilities, ages, shapes & sizes.
Never think you are not flexible enough to do yoga! The more inflexible you are, the more you need it. You will be encouraged to progress at your own pace, moving as gently as you like or going for the full challenge! With regular attendance,you will soon start to feel the far-reaching effects on both your body and your mind. The style of yoga I teach is Flow Yoga (moving fluidly from one pose to another synchronising breath with movement) combined with some longer 'held' poses to target the connective tissues in our hips, pelvis and lower spine.
