Self-pacing is actively encouraged in this non-competitive environment.
What if I have injuries or physical weaknesses?
At the start of each class students are asked if there any any injuries or conditions which the teacher should be aware of. Where postures are not suitable an alternative is provided to avoid causing any issues with your condition. The benefits of yoga can be felt as regular practice increases circulation and flexibility. Postures also help strengthen the muscles and build core strength in a gentle way.
