Remedial Yoga

Remedial Yoga

Tuesdays: 5.00 p.m. – 6.15 p.m.

The Remedial class is open to students of all ages and fitness levels.  

The class is slow paced and as a result of using props, it successfully addresses problems such as back ache, tight shoulders and hips and sore knees.

Student issues will largely guide the content of the class.

In the Remedial class students initially rest in supported, passive poses to promote postural alignment. After muscles are relaxed, more active, but modified poses are performed.
