Relax and Restore

This class is about total relaxation!

Open to everyone and particularly suitable for those times when life feels too stressful, if your energy is low, after illness or if you have a condition such as ME. It is a unique opportunity to experience the healing restorative aspects of yoga.

You will be guided by experienced teachers through sequences of comfortable restful poses with gentle attention on the breath. This will renew and balance your energy.

Iyengar yoga uses supports such as blankets and bolsters so that poses can be done with no effort.  Supported backbends, twists, gentle forward bends and some inverted poses have a soothing yet powerful effect on the body and the mind.

Research shows the many health benefits of yoga
* improved sleep,
* release of tension,
* improving heart function, respiration,
* release of toxins, regulating blood pressure
* improving the immune system
