NOTE: Sometimes people forget that yoga is about union, yes….but it is also possible to have fun whilst you seek enlightenment.
The only thing you really need is not a perfect practice or body, but a sense of humour and a willingness to make an arse of yourself (sometimes). Leave refreshed and relaxed.
MONDAY @ Brockenhurst Village Hall SO42 7R
7PM ASHTANGA £12 Drop in welcome
Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. It is a hard and fast moving practice that takes you out of yourself completely and eventually becomes a moving meditation.
FRIDAYs 9.30am @ BARNES LANE SO41 0RP
Free flowing poses in a playful but safe yoga practice, includes music, each class is a themed play with mind and body, using vinyasa, hatha, yin and a pinch of spice and maybe some improv (only when you have no idea what everyone else is doing). The postures will be simple and accessible to everyone, but this does not mean that the practice will be easy; there will be some challenging moments. Drop-in £10 or buy 5 classes for £40 in Barnes Lane, Milford on Sea (call to book 078945888002-limited places)
7.30PM YIN YOGA £10 pre-booking required
In these classes we will discuss how to activate the parasympathetic and turn off the sympathetic systems; a critical component in our Western culture which is very yang-like: full of stress, burn-out and depletion. They will explore how to use yoga and our breath to turn off the stress and start to rest and recharge the body.
