Tuesdays 9.30am - Slow Flow
A slow even-paced flowy hatha yoga. A chance to open and strengthen the body and tune into the mind through movement. We work through traditional hatha poses such as downward facing dog and sequences such as sun salutation. Beginners, all levels welcome. Block purchase available as well as drop in.
Wednesdays 6.30pm - Restorative Yin Yoga
During Yin we really slow down, encourage the mind and body to rest, repair and restore. Using bolsters, blankets and props to support us we hold poses for 3-10 minutes, allowing ourselves to soften and surrender to gravity, dissolving tension, lengthening muscles, ligaments and the myofasica. With Yin we can undo old patterns in which the body holds itself and encourage cells to renew repair. If we can move better we can reduce wear and tear in our joints. Yin yoga can support sports recovery, increasing suppleness and flexibility and relieve fatigue. Read more about Yin here, in my blog and feel free to get in touch if you need any help deciding if this is the right class for you.
Class size - max 5
Thursdays 11am - Somatic Movement
If you have been to a hatha yoga class expecting it to help build strength and flexibility but have left disheartened then Somatic Movement may be for you. By adapting traditional yoga and focusing on smaller movement we can increase strength, agility and feel more supple. Movement is breath-led, exercises are floor based, it's a little bit like pilates and a little bit like yoga. Somatic movement is for everyone and perhaps especially useful if recovering from injury or just in need of a more gentle practice. Learn more about Somatics here, in my blog, or get in touch if you'd rather have a chat.
Class size - max 6
Classes are held at my cosy home studio in Ealing within easy walking distance of Ealing Broadway and Ealing Common stations.
TO REGISTER FOR CLASSES
One to One Yoga
Private yoga classes can be exactly what you need them to be, yoga at your pace, for your needs and your goals. Yoga can be a gentle yet effective method of reducing stress and improving physical, mental & emotional wellness.
If you are new to yoga the personal attention of one to one sessions could help you find the confidence to dive into a group class.
If you are working with an injury or looking to improve postural alignment or just looking for a gentler way to maintain fitness a tailor made programme can be designed just for you. Please contact Karan for a chat if you would like to have private yoga classes.
The age old practice of meditation is enriching and awesome but for many of us as soon as we close our eyes the seemingly simple task of stilling the mind feels daunting even impossible.
During meditation we can be met with challenging thoughts and emotions, questions arise and searching for answers can leave us feeling stuck in our practice and we might even feel like giving up.
Co-meditation or one to one meditation classes can be a way to start, explore or progress your mediation practice within a supported context.
