“I feel a level of relaxation I haven’t experienced outside of a spa.” Jenessa Williams, Leeds Confidential. Read the class review here.
Meditative yoga for relaxation and balance is not your typical yoga class with an emphasis on challenging physical postures, stretching and breaking into a sweat! This uplifting and relaxing lunch-time class focuses on simple yogic techniques to deepen and calm your breathing and relax your body and mind. Each session includes non-strenuous seated yoga postures combined with mantra recitation and breathing exercises set to uplifting Indian spiritual music.
This class is a perfect way to incorporate some relaxing ‘me’ time into your busy working week. No previous experience of yoga is necessary as these sessions are suitable for all levels. Just wear comfortable clothing for ease of sitting on either a chair or the floor. Mats and cushions are provided. The class is led by Christine (Simranpreet), a KYTA qualified yoga instructor. Please note that this yoga originates from an Indic spiritual practice and is not Tibetan Buddhism.
The class runs for 30mins with an additional optional 15 minutes of relaxation.
