Yoga for Mind, Breath & Body
16th November 2021 @ 18:15 - 19:45
An event every week that begins at 18:15 on Tuesday, repeating until 14th December 2021
Suitable for all, and especially for those who feel that they are not bendy enough or relaxed enough to practise yoga, this positive, friendly class places emphasis on developing evenness of mind, fullness of breath and ease within the body. Incorporating posture, breathing, meditation, philosophy, visualisation and sound, and tailored to those in attendance, the time of day and the season, this class will help you to improve your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing and to cultivate the skills you need to navigate the ups and downs of life.
While any given class may contain some challenging postures, students are always given alternative options so that they can practice safely and wisely.
‘In the words of my teacher’s teacher, TKV Desikachar “We begin where we are and how we are and whatever happens, happens.’
Mandy usually runs classes on a drop in basis but places are limited so please do email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
The informal answer, the one I’d give you if you asked me this question at a party, is that I teach no nonsense, practical yoga, the kind you can do in your tracksuit bottoms and an old t-shirt. It does’t matter what shape you are, how stiff or flexible you are, how old or young you are, all that matters is that you roll out a mat and give it a try.
“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can” – Arthur Ashe
I teach the kind of yoga that starts off by getting you stretching and breathing and ends up, if you want it to, teaching you things about yourself you never knew and empowering you to make positive changes you couldn’t have imagined.
