Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS: It is the responsibility of participants to ensure they have downloaded and checked they have access to the Microsoft Teams Application. Suitable for all ages and levels of flexibility/fitness, as long as you can do the exercises standing and on the mat. This is not a chair yoga class. HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES: A waiver form will be emailed to enrolled students and must be returned prior to the course start date. Make sure you have enough space around you and your mat to move freely and safely. Keep your mat clean by wiping it with antibacterial product before and/or after every session. Use a quiet space where you are calm and comfortable. Interruptions during a deep relaxation may be very unsettling. Please try to avoid them, as well as having pets around. OVERVIEW / INTRODUCTION TO THE COURSE: Strengthen your body and mind, increase your flexibility/mobility and reduce stress. Yoga will help develop your emotional regulation, improve your ability to relax and experience a general sense of wellbeing.

WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: SYLLABUS: forward, back and side bends, strength, balance and stretch poses, twists, inversions and basic flows. By the end of the course students will have: improved physical fitness including suppleness, strength, stamina and balance; acquired knowledge of basic yoga concepts, poses and breathing techniques; learnt to relax consciously body and mind; and experience enhanced concentration, awareness and general sense of wellbeing. RESOURCES REQUIRED BY STUDENTS / ADDITIONAL COSTS Please wear comfortable clothes (preferably elastic) that allow you to move freely.
