What to expect in our Yoga Classes
We structure our Yoga classes so that we always have a theme of yoga philosophy. Breathing exercises (Pranayama) are always included in our classes to give you techniques to help manage stress. Mobilisation exercises start the physical part of the session followed by yoga poses working up to a peak pose or flow. Every session finishes with a lovely guided relaxation so you can feel like you float home after class!
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali describes 8 limbs of Yoga. Only one of these limbs is the physical practice of yoga postures. We ensure to cover all of these limbs of Yoga across our classes and themes.
Our Wirral Yoga Classes
We have weekly Hoylake Yoga Classes at Hoylake Parade Community Centre and weekly West Kirby Yoga Classes at Westbourne Hall Community Centre. In the Summer we run Pop-up Beach yoga sessions. Throughout the year we run Yoga Brunch events, Retreat Days and Workshops.
Gentle Years Yoga Classes – Chair Yoga Classes
In addition to to our Traditional Hatha Yoga classes we offer weekly Wirral Chair Yoga classes. These are our Gentle Years Yoga© Classes. The sessions are aimed at people with age related health conditions or for those who wish to practice yoga in a chair.
