CLASSES and TIMES…
5.30 p.m. – 6.45 p.m General class
8.00 a.m. – 9.30 a.m Intermediate class
10.00 a.m – 11.00 a.m Beginner Class
Each class starts with postures that extend the body or collect the mind, then intensifies and ends with postures that stabilize the practice.
WHAT CLASS TO CHOOSE?
When choosing a class, the time as well as your experience is a consideration ….
The Beginner class is perfect for those new to yoga. It introduces the basic asanas and focuses on movement and the shapes of the poses. Emphasis is on the standing poses, through which the body gains strength and co-ordination.
The class is 1 hour
The General class consolidates the basics and gives a general background of sitting, twists, prone and supine poses. Along with the standing poses, simple backbends and inversions are also taught. All students are welcome.
The class is 1.25 hours
The Intermediate class is for experienced students, that means, you can do a headstand, even if against a wall and you know the basic movements of the different poses. Refinement of actions through more detailed instructions take you on an inward journey of the subtler actions of practice.
The class is 1.5 hours
- Be on time
- If, however, you are running late, come into class quietly, and wait at the entrance
- Eating before class is never good ~ Allow 2 hours after a light meal
- We practice in clean bare feet
- No scents or perfumes
- Bring a bath towel, it’s often handy as a pillow or to put over props
- I encourage you to bring your own mat, bricks and belt
- I do have some spare mats and props for those new to yoga
- Show courtesy to others by not walking on their mats
