Yoga - in a nutshell
Yoga describes a variety of physical, mental and spiritual practices derived in ancient India. A regular yoga routine improves not only your physical health, fitness and flexibility but is incredibly helpful also to create a sense of inner balance and calm on mental-emotional level. The practice of yoga and mindfulness truly encourages a deeply holistic and unified approach towards life - a yogic and mindful attitude - which unfolds in us a complete and integral understanding of the interconnection between body, mind and spirit.
Postnatal Yoga with Yvi - What to expect ?
Babies are very welcome :) Relaxed classes to tone, strengthen and re-align body, mind and spirit after pregnancy and giving birth, to connect with yourself, baby and other new mums, develop a sense of empowerment and to promote overall physical health & well-being as well as mental-emotional relaxation!
Look forward to a calm and gentle restorative approach, with a focus on strengthening and exercising tight and tense muscle groups, and/or a slightly stronger workout as you begin to regain your fitness and strength. You will learn and explore some essential and very useful breathing techniques (pranayama), guided deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and/ or a short guided mindfulness meditation practice, as well as chanting (babies love the harmonium!) and the wonderful sounds and vibrations of Tibetan Singing Bowls.
Hands on adjustments to postures are offered throughout, allowing you to bring your body into best possible alignment available to you and work with the level you are at.
Yvi's classes emphasise a mindful and integrated understanding of your being where you will naturally be able to begin to observe, let go and move into a space of deep calm and inner silence. The 1 to 1 and small private groups class format allows for a versatile, bespoke and very personal experience.
