GENTLE FLOW YOGA
Gentle Flow Yoga is designed to improve flexibility, posture, promote healthy joints, increase oxygen intake, strengthen bone and muscle and improve balance.
Throughout the classes we link movement to the breath and always end the class with some dedicated relaxation time giving the mind and body essential time to rest after the yoga practice.
In yoga, it is believed that our real age is determined by flexibility and health of our spine. As we get older, our range of motion and flexibility of spinal column diminishes and our posture deteriorates, leading to reduced musculoskeletal body functioning. Yoga is the perfect activity to take up if you are older or if you suffer from aches and pains, because its low impact and precise motion combined with weight-bearing postures have strengthening benefits for the whole body.
Regular practice of yoga can help reduce age linked ailments and will make you more agile, stronger, and importantly bring a real sense of relaxation.

Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style that uses props to support the body, encouraging deep relaxation. Using passive yoga asanas, we let our nervous systems shift and enjoy the benefit of true rest. Different from more active styles, we will concentrate on surrendering our weight to support and softening into the stretches. This helps us to relieve the effects of negative stress encountered in daily life, and can be highly beneficial in times of fatigue, illness, and emotional strain. Our focus will be to calm and nurture ourselves on all levels during the class. Music, which is used will enhance the experience, encouraging a total sense of letting go.
Purpose of Restorative Yoga
The purpose of restorative yoga is to provide rest and rejuvenation to muscles and connective tissues. Relaxing on an assortment of supports may seem lacking in difficulty, but it is challenging for some to find the stillness and patience required for the long holds. It’s essential for us to give our muscles a chance to rest and rebound from exercise and from everyday life.
Benefits of Restorative Yoga
Even one restorative yoga pose will lead to a calm, restful state. By arranging the body strategically and supporting it with props, you’ll experience deep rest and healing. In each pose, you’ll get all the usual benefits, multiplied many times over because of the long holds. Restorative yoga relieves stress and takes you to a quiet place that is meditative and ideal for processing emotions.
Is Restorative Yoga For Me?
