Yoga with Yogagility
Oct 13, 2016 @ 1:45 pm - 3:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:45pm on Thursday, repeating indefinitely
YOGAgility is a mix of Hatha Yoga styles suitable for people of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. YOGAgility classes offer a westernised approach to Yoga geared toward the average person, there are no extremes of anything and no jargon. During a class we stretch, strengthen, relax, breathe, meditate, laugh, visualise, and enjoy lots of ‘extras’ drawn from other disciplines, that couldn’t be described as classical YOGA at all, the main goal being that you become more agile and at ease with yourself and the world.
A typical class begins with 10/15 minutes winding down, with some gentle breathing, or simple meditation techniques. This is followed by easy warming and mobilising movements to prepare the body for more dynamic and challenging stretches. We end the session with 15 minutes relaxation, along with guided visualisation techniques, some inspirational poetry, insightful stories, or listening to some beautiful music or mantras – all very soothing.
The content of the class varies from week to week, working with different themes or focusing on different parts of the body; floor work, backbends, sequences, energising poses, restorative poses, etc. sometimes using props such as ties, blocks, chairs, and occasionally employing the help of a partner.
