Yoga and relaxation - 1

Ref: C2338900

This course is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those with experience. We will work on a range of yoga postures: seated, lying and standing; everyone is able to work at their own level. The tutor adapts to the needs of the individual. The beauty of yoga is that it is non-competitive -you are not even competing with yourself. The role of the breath is key in the sessions, we will work on yoga movements with the breath as well as finishing each session with a breathing meditation and a guided relaxation.
