Can’t touch your toes? Feel too stiff for yoga? Rest assured when I ﬁrst tried yoga, I couldn’t touch my toes either but with regular practice and through recognising I had to start somewhere, I eventually reached the ﬂoor!
You might be asking yourself, “What is Vinyasa Flow yoga?”
Vinyasa (vin-YA-sa) literally means “breath-synchronised movement.” It’s a series of poses that you move smoothly through while being aware of inhaling and exhaling which creates a lot of heat, and it’s also a great way to expel toxins. Vinyasa movements are almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. You might hear me offer ‘modiﬁcations’ in my classes. This simply means I’m giving my students a variety of options so that even if it’s your ﬁrst yoga class or you’re a seasoned yogi, you’re able to give an asana (a yoga position) a go. You’ll be happy to know that we end each yoga class with svasana (shah-VAHS-ahnah) where you’ll lay down to calm the brain and relax the mind before setting off home.
I teach yoga in Nottingham so, please have a look at my weekly schedule for further details of where and when I hold regular Nottingham yoga classes. I also offer weekend workshops in Nottingham, residential retreats, collaborative yoga workshops and bespoke yoga classes in the workplace and mentoring to yoga teachers on a one to one basis. All of my yoga events will be advertised on here, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram so you’re aware of all of the diverse yoga opportunities that I offer to help guide you in your yoga journey.
