It’s basically magic – you’ve got to try it to believe it!
Thursdays @ 12.30pm (45m) Core Power Yoga with Joy Bartoli
Combining the best of yoga & pilates this class is about finding the balance of strength, mobility & flexibility that is right for you. We are all different and Joy’s clear, calm & relaxed teaching will give you a sense of health & wellness that comes from connecting your movement with your breath & connecting your mind with your body. Options will be provided for all levels, and as always if you have an issue/injury discuss it with your teacher before class so we can help you to help yourself!
Bring your own mat or reserve one of our mats (100% natural by ecoYoga) just email [email protected] – or turn up on time and join as long as there is space. The door will be locked when class starts & if you are late someone else may have taken your place/you will only be able to join if the teacher permits it.
Wear clothes you can move comfortably in & bring a bottle of water. Classes are donation based (suggested £2 per class) with ALL proceeds to the charity The Soup Kitchen.
PLEASE arrive one time, if you are a beginner and/or have a medical condition/injury to discuss with your teacher arrive 5-10 minutes before class – THIS IS IMPORTANT SO WE CAN LOOK AFTER YOUR HEALTH. Group classes are not suitable for everybody – some conditions require specialist modifications, understanding & training – for example these classes are not suitable if you are pregnant. You MUST discuss any medical condition, illness and/or injury with us & your teacher prior to class – contact us /email [email protected] in confidence.
YOGA – You don’t need to be flexible to do yoga – saying you’re not flexible enough to do yoga is just like saying you’re too smelly for a shower! We’re sure you smell lovely by the way – and it’s good to know that our classes are not too hot & sweaty so you’ll be fine going back to work afterwards. Incredibly beneficial for your body & mind, our yoga classes usually include breathing exercises, mindfulness and/or meditation but we do NOT include any religious elements in our yoga classes.
PILATES – use controlled movements & breath awareness to develop a strong core, good posture & spinal alignment. You’ll be encouraged to work as hard or as gently as is appropriate for you – regardless of your current fitness level you will see improvement! Excellent to tone your tummy & avoid/manage back pain as it develops a strong & functional support system around your spine.
YinYan means an introduction and we pride ourselves on being beginner-friendly – that’s because beginners have got the most to gain…we do classes for real people and real people are not perfect!
How much better will you feel after class?
