Online Yoga Classes

March 20th 2020  

In light of the current situation that is affecting all of us and our ability to attend our regular yoga classes, whether as a teacher or a student, I have decided to offer online yoga tuition for the first time.  

Bookings/payments for classes are made via the app. Bookwhen. Please follow the link below to take advantage of 5 class passes and concessionary rates.

Also, vouchers are available for NHS frontline workers, and Care support assistants so please contact me if you fall into this category. You are entitled to a free class.

DISCLAIMER:

Due to the nature of these classes I will be unable to see you in the same way as I would in an actual studio class, if at all, so it is imperative that you take responsibility for your own safety whilst following along. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF, so if you have any doubts about your ability to join in safely, please refrain. If you have any underlying health issues, please check with your GP in advance of joining and get the all-clear.

GENERAL RULES: Er on the side of caution; if something feels too strong/intense for you…back off and take it easy. If you feel any pain, especially in your joints; come out of the pose and check that you’re doing it correctly, and if necessary skip the posture for now. No yoga pose is worth hurting yourself for. How do you know if you’re pushing yourself too hard? As a rough guide, you won’t be able to breathe correctly and as instructed.

 

ONLINE YOGA TIMETABLE:

Monday at 19.00 Shadow Yoga Level 2. There is no set agenda for this class but it will include one (or part of one) of the preludes and some āsana based on who is in attendance, with the level adjusted to suit the needs of the group.

Thursday at 19.00 Shadow Yoga Level 1. There is no set agenda for this class but it will include one of the preludes and some āsana based on who is in attendance, with the level adjusted to suit the needs of the group. If in any doubt about its suitability for your current level, contact me in advance to discuss it.

Saturday at 11.00 Shadow yoga drop-in class. All levels and open to non-shadow yoga students. There is no set agenda for this class but it will include elements of the shadow yoga prelude forms and some āsana. The level of this class and the nature of the shadow yoga movements that are chosen will be based on who is in attendance. The level of difficulty will be adjusted to suit the needs of the group.

This class is open to students with either a basic understanding of shadow yoga, experience in qigong or martial arts, or practitioners from other systems who would like an introduction to the fundamentals of this school of hatha yoga. If you like it you could consider enrolling on a shadow yoga beginners course to learn the system properly.

If in any doubt about the class’s suitability for your current level, contact me in advance to discuss it.
