Wise Yoga – Restful Yoga Class (suitable for beginners)
Restful yoga (otherwise called Wise Yoga) is a 90-minute class. It’s a gentle yoga class influenced by the Feldenkrais Method. This is a class specially tailored for the wise 50+ (but anyone wise is welcome). In this class we move gently to get rid of stiffness, pain and aches, lubricate the joints and improving balance. Good posture is also another component in this class, if we learn and understand how the body is designed to work then we also learn how to stay out of pain, especially back pain. At the end of the class (half-hour) you have a special treat i.e. Yoga Nidra. This is a meditative yoga practice where you do nothing but lie down and get in touch with your inner-self and teacher. This is a very nourishing practice where you give yourself permission to let it all go and deeply relax.
Your investment is £7 for 4 (consecutive) classes or £9 if you prefer to pay as you go.
