RETURNING SOON: Pregnancy is a beautiful time but also brings a lot of changes to a woman’s life. It is important for every mum-to-be to make time for herself and prepare not just for labour but also for the changes that a new baby brings.

 

The pregnancy classes with Lucy are suitable from 14 weeks onwards and gently helps to strengthen the body and release aches and pains whilst assuring that everyone is safe and comfortable at all times.

 

Over the six-weeks of this pregnancy yoga course, you will learn to move mindfully, quieten the mind, connect with your breath and your baby. As well as learning the power of the breath, you will work on both short sequences and holding poses to release and stabilise where it is most needed, while your body adjusts for the growing baby. This weekly yoga practice will serve you well to stay strong and flexible, reduce tension physically and mentally during your pregnancy, labour and beyond.

 

Pregnancy Yoga

YOGA STYLES

YOGA CLASSES

The word ‘Yoga’ means ‘union’, or ‘to link together’. Yoga is based on the understanding that the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind, and that Yoga has a positive effect on all the elements of our being. It emphasises the importance of calming our over-stimulated minds, turning our focus inwards, and cultivating inner peace and a sense of deep connectedness both to our selves and the bigger picture of life.

 

At Tree of Life, we offer a wide range of Yoga classes, with something for people of all ages and levels of experience. The many benefits of yoga include:

 

Stress and anxiety  reduction -  Relief from back, joint and muscular pain - Improved blood pressure - Better sleep, digestion and energy levels -  Relief from headaches and migraines  -  Increased happiness and sense of wellbeing

 

Please check with the centre and the teacher of your chosen class, if you suffer from any specific health issues and would like to attend.

These Modern Postural Yoga-based Vajrasati yoga classes are suitable for all levels from complete beginners to experienced yoga practitioners. The class incorporates classical yoga postures and variations on classical asanas (postures). The asanas are taught with a strong emphasis on breath and energy awareness, resulting in deep relaxation, calmer mind, healthier body and the cultivation of a deeper connection with ourselves and the world.  Vajrasati classes also incorporates yoga philosophy to explore the rich traditions of its spiritual practice, and so it's more than just stretching!

 

The class ranges from restorative to more dynamic postures and props are used when helpful to make postures available to all no matter what movement is possible within the body.  Props are also included for more restorative supported restful practices. Generally, postures are taught individually (with an emphasis on the rest space in-between as part of the practice) but some flow work is occasionally incorporated into the class.

All our classes are suitable for beginners. Those completely new to yoga would be welcome to try any class that suits them. None of our classes are held for beginner's only. This gives the opportunity to learn yoga in a mixed-level environment, with supportive classes that are small enough for each individual to receive suitable attention in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Beginners Yoga 

Vanda Scaravelli was a long-term student of Iyengar and later Desikachar. Her work is based on an approach of learning how to listen to your body - going with it and not against it, avoiding all effort or strain and centering the attention on the movement and opening of the spine. She believed that yoga was not a form of body control but rather a way of bringing freedom to the body and mind.

 

"It is not so much the performance of the exercises that matters but rather the way we are doing them. We have three friends - gravity, breath and movement of the spine. These three companions should be constantly with us".

 

Scaravelli Yoga

Vajrasati Yoga

This Yin Restore class is all about slowing down and learning to be still within yourself, taking a rest from the world of yang and constant bombardment of images, emails, social media, time frames, deadlines, movement and whatever else our culture throws at us !  It is therefore a very mindful, meditative practice which has huge benefits for the nervous system and the mind.  Anatomically, yin can help nourish and strengthen our joints, help us release tension in the fascia and balance our energy levels.  Postures are held between 3-5 mins giving time to explore what we're experiencing and to deepen our awareness.

The aim of this course is to integrate the techniques of mindfulness-based meditation into yoga practice. Whilst all traditional yoga is essentially mindful in that it is encouraging us to move to integration (a translation of the Sanskrit word yoga), this course uses more of the meditation techniques of mindfulness and meditation techniques from traditional yoga teachings than a regular yoga class to enable you to have the tools to become a self-meditator and transfer the deep awareness learned on the mat and cushion into every day life.  

 

Each hour and a half session includes approximately 1 – 1 ¼  hours of asana (yoga posture practice) with 15-30 minutes of formal meditation practice (usually seated meditation but also occasionally moving techniques, breathing-based techniques which may be done reclined, body scanning or yoga nidra – a deep reclined guided meditation practice). It is suitable for anyone either as a first introduction to meditation, a refresher or support to an already existing practice.  For anyone wanting to delve really deep into the practice of mindfulness in particular then it is recommended that you attend a mindfulness course (before, after or along side this course).  This course runs in blocks of 6-8 weeks.
