Mindful Yoga Classes
You are encouraged to pay attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. Classes are slower paces and usually end with a mindfulness meditation which can assist in the development of positive health behaviors, psychological and emotional resilience, and a sense of well-being that can be effectively cultivated and relied upon throughout your life.
Stress Relief Yoga
These classes are an opportunity for you to de-stress in the tranquility of Birchwood Yoga's beautiful rural studio. Classes are specifically designed to address the physiological impact of stress. We therefore practice strong asana to rid the body of stress hormones, in conjunction with long hold stretches to induce the relaxation response, restorative poses and breathing techniques; teaching the nervous system that it can return to a feeling of calm after stress. Meditation often makes an appearance as a wonderful support to calm a busy mind. And of course relaxation to leave you feeling grounded, calm and re-booted for the week ahead.
Dates as follows for 2019 - Sundays 9.00 - 12.00
Due to the small class sizes at Birchwood Yoga, it is recommended that beginners take private classes until they feel confident to join a weekly class.
