So I am starting to run some yoga workshops in Brighton. These will also be on Saturday afternoons, 2-4pm. The venue is Brighton Natural Health Centre above Infinity foods. The entrance is on Regent street, just a ten minute walk from Brighton railway station.
During lockdown I’ve been asked by my students which are the best Yoga poses to practice at home ? Many people do not have Yoga equipment and feel this holds them back, but this is not necessarily the case.
As I'm writing this post we in the UK are in lockdown due to Corona virus. Beforehand, I was teaching Iyengar Yoga to hundreds of people every year. Many of us are now self-isolating.
The body and mind connection that is achieved through a careful and mindful Yoga practice is able to reveal the underlying causes of our stress. It is then that we can start to address these causes and improve our lives.
So I am running more workshops on Saturday afternoons in 2020 - almost one per month. The venue is still the lovely Tythe barn on Pondtail Road.
Iyengar Yoga is renowned as a safe way of working, partly due to the use of props to help stiffer students. Iyengar Yoga can help with many of the common complaints of sports people, from muscle tightness to more serious injuries.
Is Yoga enough on its own or do you need to add something like running or swimming to make it a complete exercise program?
I teach yoga for children and teenagers- sometimes in family groups in their own homes. Children aged 12 or over are welcome to come to any of my classes or workshops, with a parent or guardian.
When we practice we are supposed to draw the attention inwards. We are supposed to be mindful, not daydreaming. Our minds are not supposed to wander off.
Did you know that doctors have a special way to record patients who say they are tired all the time?
