I prepare a lesson outline specifically for you, based on our discussions or previous lessons, and provide a copy of this at the end. I come to your home or venue which will need to be a suitable space where you have enough room to move and stretch out. Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing – a T-shirt and tracksuit trousers or leggings are ideal - plus you may want an extra layer or two to put on during the final period of relaxation.
A typical yoga class will begin with some warm up exercises, sometimes preceded by a short relaxation with some breathing practice, followed by a variety of postures (asanas), and a final relaxation at the end of the lesson. If required, a short meditation practice can also be included. Mindfulness techniques are often taught as part of the relaxation or meditation aspect of the lesson. I will fully explain and demonstrate all the practices, and assist and adjust your practice of the postures as necessary.
Each yoga lesson will build on the previous one: postures and practices already learned can be repeated (with variations) to fully integrate your learning experience, while new postures can be introduced gradually for a more rounded, varied practice and to maintain your interest.
