Gentle Yoga

Suitable for Beginners - Advanced

In the words of Simon Borg Olivier, yoga should feel like a soft gentle massage by a loved one.

In this hour-long session, we will be working with breath, meditation and soft gentle movement.

No experience is necessary, and we can adapt for all types of bodies.

Benefits

Yoga can have a very calming effect on your state of mind and this is a great, gentle class to enjoy that.

You don’t have to push yourself to enjoy the benefits of yoga and meditation, this class reminds us to slow down and be kind to ourselves.

You will feel your strength, flexibility and balance improve over time - this class may be gentle but yoga is powerful!

Many people find that they are less stressed, able to sleep better at night and concentrate better during the day when they practice yoga. It helps us feel good!

A gentle yoga practice encourages us to activate the Parasympathetic Nervous System - if you have a busy or stressful everyday life this can be a great practice to bring the mind and body back to balance.

What to wear

Just wear whatever you are comfortable in - clothes that are easy to move and relax in.

Contraindications

This practice is very gentle and adaptable. There are no specific contraindications, but if you have any injuries or health conditions be sure to mention them when you fill out your New Client Form and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

Questions

Do I need any prior yoga experience?

Not at all! This practice is suitable for all levels and a great place to start.

I'm quite experienced - will there still be options to challenge me?

Yes! The beauty of yoga is how adaptable it is - even if you have a very established movement practice we will be able to give you challenging variations.

It should be noted that our Gentle Yoga class is very slow and gentle - sometimes the challenge can be in just being still!

The Strong Vinyasa Flow class is different every week - there will always be something new to challenge you. It’s also a great class to work on specific strength goals.

I'm injured - is it ok to practice?

As long as you have your doctor’s approval and are able to listen to your body and ask for advice as as necessary.

Strong Vinyasa Flow probably isn’t the best class if you are working with an injury - Gentle Yoga or Nurturing Yoga and Pilates would be more suitable practice (and always get your doctor’s ok before returning to yoga).

Please let us know if you are working with any injuries or illnesses - either by filling out our new client form, or by telling the teacher before the start of the class.
