Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Class
Work and working out had to be fast and furious, right? Well not so long ago that's what I thought. I'm Lisa Barnes and run the Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Class here at Beehive Healthcare in Chester.
A few years ago I started going regularly to a yoga class...it wasn't an all singing all dancing class latest yoga-pants class - it was a meditative and relaxing style class, with a good mix of different age groups, slowly but surely it became my 'thing' so much I personally wanted to spread this new found love of mine.
Yoga and its many styles is for anybody and everybody. You do not have to be flexible to start with. I wasn't, yes I've greatly improved my flexibility... but my legs won't tie behind my neck (yet). So as you continue to practice yoga you will be likely see an improvement in your flexibility, but it's not all about that.
For me it was never my aim, or my desire.
Yoga is many things, not just the 'positions' passed down through 1000s of years, although any class you attend it seems that that is the general purpose. Yoga is really is getting in tune with your mind, body & using it it connect with our everyday lives.
The health benefits of meditation and yoga are many, it may lower high blood pressure, reduce your anxiety, decrease tension-related pain; is beneficial if you suffer from headaches, insomnia, muscle and joint issues.
My class starts with some breathing techniques before we move into a sequence of movements. These could include seated, standing with some twists and turns to wring and rinse internally as the movements are not just designed to work on the external body. We move with the breath and end with a floor based relaxation bringing all the threads of the practice together.
