WHY PRACTICE YOGA?
Yoga brings a deeper connection of the mind, body and breath allowing us to focus on the present moment and bring calm into the mind and body. Practicing Yoga can help improve flexibility in the joints and muscles, strengthen and tone the body, relieve stress and anxiety and improve general wellbeing. Yoga is for everyone, all ages, shapes and sizes. There is always an alternative pose or the option to rest if something doesn't suit you. Both Kym and Jess are experienced yoga instructors so you are in safe hands.
WHAT IS BEGINNERS YOGA?
A beginners class isn't just for those brand new to yoga but of course it is perfect if you are. Some yogis like to move slowly and often a beginners class will do just that to give the mind and body time to get a feel of the poses. The classes are great for those returning to yoga after taking a break, to refresh their practice and focus on perfecting their technique. We spend the time moving mindfully and learning to incorporate the breath.
OUR STYLES OF YOGA
At FloFitness we like to make our yoga suitable for everyone but of course we know some of you are experienced yogis and some of you new to it. We practice Vinyasa Yoga in most of our classes which means we can step it up or down depending on those in the class. We also offer monthly Yin Yoga and fortnightly Aerial Yoga. During the summer months I team up with Bonkers Activities and we run SUP Yoga (stand up paddle boarding) workshops in Pershore.
WHAT IS YIN YOGA?
During a Yin class seated postures are held for up to 5 minutes which allows the body to move much deeper. Yin focuses on the connecting tissues such as tendons and ligaments rather than just the muscles therefore the range of movement is increased. After a Yin class the body will feel more open, the mind will feel more quiet and here is a sense of calm throughout.
WHAT IS VINYASA YOGA?
Vinyasa means to place in a special way meaning each pose is carefully sequenced into a flowing form of movement. This sense of flow can sometimes feel like a slow moving dance due to the link to the breath Some of you may find it becomes a form of movement meditation. Vinyasa brings in an element of fitness challenging the mind and body.
