Why Do You Want to Try Yoga?

Yogasana is an excellent way to improve strength and stability. Many of the yoga postures we practise require core strength and target the large muscle groups such as legs, back, shoulders and chest. If this is one of your aims for trying yoga, then I would recommend you try Vinyasa Yoga for Power & Grace. This is my most popular class and has been attended by some individual students for many years.
All of my classes have some element of stretching involved. So attending any class regularly will improve your flexibility. However, Yoga for Relaxation focusses on stretching for longer periods of time (3-5 minutes) and this might improve your flexibility more than other classes where we only hold each posture for a few breaths.
Yoga has become popular over the past several decades as a way to improve one’s health and wellbeing. One reason yoga is beneficial is because it focusses on the physical, mental and emotional aspects of a person. By connecting movement with the breath, students find that over time and with practice, the exercises become less physical, thus allowing them to delve deeper into their mental and emotional states. If you consider yourself new to yoga, then I recommend that you try Yoga for Beginners, Yoga for Relaxation or Slow Flow Yoga. These classes are slower than Vinyasa Yoga for Power & Grace and more accessible to beginners.
Using yoga as a tool to reduce stress and anxiety is a common reason many students attend classes with me. If you find that you are anxious, worried, depressed or having trouble sleeping, then yoga may be beneficial to reducing some of these symptoms. Having said that however, it is not a quick fix. Although you may feel better during and after class, the affects are only long-lasting if you develop a regular practice. Even 10 minutes a day can make a tremendous difference in how you move, breath, think and interact with others. Consider if you’d like to try a more active class such as Vinyasa Yoga for Power & Grace, or a more chill class such as Yoga for Relaxation. Between those two extremes I also have Yoga for Beginners and Slow Flow Yoga, all of which can help to reduce stress, anxiety and depression.
I have had many students who have discovered that they enjoy coming to yoga because they can attend with a friend or family member. This activity is safe for people of varying abilities and genders so you don’t have to be as fit/strong/flexible as your partner because you are free to do what you can on your own mat. If you purchase a 10-class pass you may share this with anyone in your family, including children as young as 7 (attending with a carer). This is also a wonderful way to introduce children and teens to yoga in an effort to reduce anxiety, increase focus and improve strength, balance and coordination. I also offer Family Yoga on select Sundays and this is a fabulous way to share yoga with children as young as 5.
Many women have discovered that yoga can be beneficial in preparation before and after childbirth. I do certainly promote these benefits myself, however I do not offer pre- or post-natal classes. However I do allow pregnant women to attend my classes if they are willing to meet with me for a private session first to discuss and learn the modifications that should be made while participating in a class with others who are not pregnant. If your health is in good standing and your healthcare provider believes you should be fine to participate in yoga, then please contact me to discuss which classes you can attend. Please read this first on Attending Classes While Pregnant and Practising Yoga During Pregnancy.
