This is an online course delivered using Zoom, in real time with live interaction with your tutor and fellow learners.
In this special Yoga session you will be shown how Yoga postures can be used to energise the mind and body and prepare you for whatever challenges you may face.
Successful students will learn how to:
1) Perform Yoga postures specifically aimed at enhancing energy flow though the body.
2) Develop an awareness of the breath, and breathing exercises which energise muscles and mind.
3) Use visualisation, inner listening and breath awareness techniques to listen to the body and identify when energy enhancing yoga would be beneficial.
Who is the tutor?
About the Tutor: Dawn Lavell
Dawn Lavell has studied, practised and taught yoga for Adult Education since 1994, focusing on experiential anatomy, movement repatterining and embodiment of the deeper teachings of yoga.
She will invite a calm, easy flow of breath that takes us into a state of quietness and lightness, by offering a series of simple positions, which will assist in relaxation, strength, stamina and spinal alignment.
My wish is for you to become agile, calm and energetic, in short, to get you into better health.
