|Time||10.00 - 11.30|
This group starts in January. Co-ordinator is Clive Boothman. There are a few places still available.
If you have already emailed me just turn up with a mat, if you have one and we will start. There is space for one or two more, male or female - so if you are interested in exercises to improve balance, flexibility and general well-being, why not give yoga a try? You won't be asked to do anything you are not happy with!
Contact the co-ordinator to secure a place.
"Exercises are like prose, whereas yoga is the poetry of movements."
Although most of our practice has been mainstream Hatha (movement with the breath) in the Sivananda tradition, we've recently been working in the Dru style as well.
This is more flowing in style than much of our recent activity which has emphasized concentration and balance, together with flexibility in and strengthening the spine and neck, shoulders, hips, arms and legs.
The class is full at the moment (with a waiting list) but if there's sufficient interest expressed at September's Open Morning, then we'll start an additional class on Friday mornings at the Fellside Centre.
The group continues to practise and explore breathing and movement exercises to develop strength, flexibility, awareness and concentration from a variety of Yoga traditions.
Our current premises at the Fellside Centre are sufficient for us to stretch properly. The group is now full although people who expressed an interest at the Open Morning will be dealt with on a first come first served basis but probably not until the New Year.
We're now a well established, easy going group and finished our Friday classes at the Fellside Centre in May. We're re-starting after a summer break in October and I intend to be at the Open Morning on September 6th with information for the period till December. There is no need for existing members to turn up on the 6th as I'll be e-mailing details later.
The style of Hatha Yoga we practise is an eclectic blend, the strongest influence of which is Sivananda
We meet every Friday, all being well, in the downstairs room of the Fellside Centre near Booths top car park.
The group practices a range of exercises intended to promote flexibility, concentration, relaxation and general well-being. You don't have to be flexible as the aim of the class is to improve this - 'Yoga is for the inflexible'.
There's a happy, stable core to the group but if you're interested in taking part, please telephone me.
