TUESDAYS:

RESTORATIVE YOGA

20.00-21.00 - Virtual class with Mindwalk Yoga

A nourishing, supported stillness practice.
Join Paula for Restorative Yoga. This class will begin with a few minutes of (optional) gentle floor-based movement followed by a supported stillness practice. Sometimes referred to as ‘active relaxation’, in this style of yoga props are used to facilitate relaxation by supporting the body. In restorative yoga, we rest in each supported posture for an extended period of time (5-10 minutes). While the body is supported there is no need to ‘hold’ a posture, therefore opening the door more easily for us to completely let go and connect to our breath. The practice increases your well-being as the calming environment lifts your mood, contributing to stress relief. Nourish yourself with this deep, slow, quiet practice.

Classes are self-contained sessions so you can literally just drop in anytime. No previous yoga knowledge is required, all levels and abilities are welcome. Participants require cushions/pillows/blankets and comfortable clothes.

Suggested props: 2-bed pillows (or 1-2 yoga bolsters), 3 cushions (or 2 yoga bricks and 1 flat yoga block), 1-2 blankets, 1 soft scarf or eye pillow, access to a chair or sofa/bed or wall.

WEDNESDAYS:

HATHA FLOW

10.00-11.00 at Yoga Point, Brixton

In this class we gracefully weave the asanas (postures) together, orchestrated by the breath to build stamina and flexibility. This class will release tension from the body and mind, improve your posture and leave you feeling stronger and more energised.

YINYASA

11.30-12.30 at Yoga Point, Brixton

This class is a meditative combination of flowing yang (active) postures and yin (floor-based passive) postures accessing the body’s deep connective tissues and connecting the breath with mindful movement. The intention of this yin and yang flow is to create more space and integrity in the body, finding ease and release while cultivating more mind/body awareness.

YIN (covering during May 2022)

18.30-19.30 online via Yoga Point, Brixton

Slow down, soften and experience the benefits of a subtle and profound practice. Yin classes consist of floor-based postures which are held for up to 5 minutes, opening into the thicker layers of connective tissues of the body. In stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. Tune in to the meditative power of the breath, observing what arises when you let go of doing and enjoy just being.

FRIDAYS:

YIN & RESTORATIVE

17.45-19.00 at Embody Wellness, Vauxhall

A gently rejuvenating and nourishing class.

In these challenging and stressful times it is vital that we create space for ourselves to heal and unwind, and one of the most effective ways of doing this is through practices such as yin and restorative yoga. Both are particularly benefical and effective in soothing the nervous system and enhancing wellbeing, with the passive, longer-held poses, which in the case of yin yoga move deeper into the connective tissues of the body on a physical level while in restorative yoga props are used to support the body and promote deep relaxation. A gently rejuvenating and nourishing start to your weekend.
