Yoga with Robyn

There are free places in these classes for NHS/ Health Care workers.
Please contact Robyn for the on-line password.

Tuesday Beginners Yoga 7.15pm

https://zoom.us/meeting/5948756899

 

This beginners yoga class more than anything else is a space for you to start gaining more body awareness and a deeper understanding of how you move and BREATHE. Paying attention to yourself and where it is that you store your pain and tension. This class is full of strengthening and mindfull mobility as well as yogasana and pranayama (breath work). EveryBODY is very welcome.

 

Thursday Stretch & Relax 7.30pm

https://zoom.us/meeting/5948756899

 

This is a 20/30 minute class to prepare both the body & the mind for a restful and restorative night's sleep.

We will move through simple sequences with different breathing techniques to help ease the body of tension. Continuously being in the heightened state of the sympathetic nervous system can create anxiety, excess adrenaline and cortisol which can lead to problems with sleeping. So the aim of this class is to teach the body how to release and transition into the parasympathetic nervous system (calm state) for the most benefits of a full night's sleep.

 

Friday Restorative Yoga 7.30 pm (bi-weekly)

https://zoom.us/meeting/5948756899

 

Restorative yoga is a class of 75 minutes to find total release. Dim your lights, light a candle or use some fairy lights, gather your cushions & blankets and get comfortable. I will be using sound, breath work and guided meditations to ease you through about 5 different postures. All of this is to encourage deep release of mental and body tension, easing you into a place to restore any depletion. A place to really look after and nourish yourself so you are more able and willing to give the best version of you to the world. The best part about this is that you will be in the comfort of your own home so you are able to stay in this state ready for a good nights sleep. All welcome.

 

Saturday Rise & Shine Power Vinyasa 10am

 

https://zoom.us/meeting/5948756899

 

Switch off your overthinking mind for an hour in this power vinyasa class. A true moving meditation.
The aim of it is to challenge you to move & BREATHE in a different way. Encouraging the body and mind to shift tension by powering through different postures. You can expect both strengthening and active stretching drills in this class. Move at your own pace and work as hard as you would like to. This is open to All levels.
