How can Yoga help me?

One of our yoga teachers, Lauri, believes that the benefits of yoga extend far beyond the mat, as yoga is a ‘practice for living’.

Here are a few ways that the practice of Yoga could support you and your wellbeing:

  • Increased physical strength and mobility.

  • A feeling of spaciousness, freedom and ease in the body and mind.

  • Mental clarity, increased attention and concentration.

  • A more stable and steady nervous system.

  • A deeper connection with the happenings of your own body and mind.

  • Reduction in pain and tension in the body, mind and breath.

  • A sense of empowerment through learning to use yoga poses, meditation, mindfulness and breathing techniques for your wellbeing.

What can I expect at my Yoga Class?

  • To feel supported and accepted to come completely as you are, regardless of physical or emotional challenges.

  • Some 1:1 support due to small class sizes.

  • The opportunity to have a little fun and not take ourselves too seriously throughout the yoga practice!

  • Options to build heat and strength as well as softness and ease within the body.

  • A sense of community and herbal tea after every class.
