Course description

Yoga is a great way to improve flexibility and strength and improve your mental well-being through careful attention to breath and movement, helping you to manage tension and learning how to relax. These skills can be practised in our day-to-day activities. This is an online course and each weekly practice will be modified and adapted to suit individual needs so everyone can access the learning at their level. You will need a non-slip yoga mat to practise onto and a small cushion or yoga block would be useful. We would advise wearing loose, comfortable clothing. We will practise gently and carefully - there isn't any strain in yoga and no competition. You will reinforce and build upon previous learning, taking part in learning physical movements and back ground information on wider health issues, whilst making an active contribution to your own well-being.
