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. 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.
