All the classes end with a short, guided meditation, with high grade essential oils, working to relax every part of the body and bring focus and clarity to the mind. All abilities are welcome, classes will be adapted to meet the needs of everyone.

• Lesson 3: Continue to develop breathing techniques at a deeper level. Create a dynamic vinyasa flow sequence focusing on the back, glutes and shoulder muscles. This area is often weakened by prolonged periods of sitting at a desk. End with a short meditation -allowing you to observe the benefits of the practice and take their attention inward away from the over-active mind.
• Lesson 4: A slower, nurturing flow concentrating on flexibility and hip openers. This counteracts long periods of sitting down. By holding the poses a little longer, work deeper into the muscles and connective tissues. Explore breath of fire “kapabalatibreathing” which helps to cleanse the lungs, sinuses, and respiratory system, which can help to prevent illness and allergies. Regular practice strengthens the diaphragm and abdominal muscles.
