Welcome to the subtle workout. Yoga classes in the Align category are slower-paced but still require concentration and effort. Subtle doesn’t necessarily mean easy. They will gradually stretch and strengthen, and build outer and inner balance. Gentle Yoga facilitates deep relaxation and breath work in order to restore, renew and heal. A mix of gentle Hatha Yoga poses sequenced together to promote balance and harmony, physically, mentally and emotionally
Up to 200
This practice is suitable for all levels, especially beginners, people nursing an injury, pre/post natal mothers and our more mature members
Why is it good for me?
Perfect for beginners to Yoga, those coming back from injury, pre/post natal mothers, our more mature members and of course those who just want to experience a gentler and slower paced Yoga practice. Flexibility, mobility, coordination, bone and organ health as well as all over body strength are all physical benefits of Gentle Yoga. You will also develop a deeper connection between mind and body, and leave feeling calm, rejuvenated and centred
What will I do?
This is a much slower paced Yoga practice. The teacher will guide you slowly through a sequence of gentle Yoga poses that are accessible to most and can be modified for all. There will be good attention brought to the breath and mindfulness which will calm the mind and bring a greater sense of joy and relaxation. You might use props like blocks and belts to help support your body in some poses
What should I bring?
We have all the equipment you need, including Yoga mats. But feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Make sure you wear comfortable workout clothes and something warm to wear during relaxation. We do recommend bringing a Yoga towel, which we sell at reception. During Gentle Yoga, make sure you grab a block and belt, and maybe a bolster as you set up your mat
