Class details:

Friday March 1st 6-8pm (GMT) Intermediate, experienced, teachers and teacher trainees.

Developing Sensitivity in Asana: tuning into bones, joints, muscles and skin – the standing poses build strength and endurance and we gain vitality. They can also, if we work with awareness, help us develop an understanding of the skin, the largest of sense. It is when the skin is aligned with the organs of action – arms, legs and spine – that we find ourselves most at ease.

Saturday March 2nd 10am – 4:30pm (GMT) General level

Yoga for a Woman’s Life – using a wide range of yoga poses, Bobby will take through the various phases of a woman’s life, showing how to adapt our practice according to our age. Come prepared to be 5 year’s old! Can you remember yourself as a teenager? Even if you have never been pregnant, experience it now with some yoga for pregnancy poses. Postpartum? We will practice as if you had just given birth. Are you under the impression that menopause will never happen? Get a taste of a menopause practice with some carefully selected poses and the same with post-menopause. Practice being elderly – it’s not so bad – with some of the poses Guruji did in his later years.

Sunday March 3rd 9:30am – 3:30pm (GMT) General level

Active Forward Bends – these forward bends are energizing, bring relief from anxiety and create much space in the lumbar spine.

Towards Mulabhandasana – “a posture where the body, from the anus to the navel, is contracted and lifted up and toward the spine”, BKS Iyengar: Light on Life. Mulabhandasana mobilizes the hips, ankles, knees and toes.
