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.
How will I be taught?
Some of the session will involve discussion about Mindfulness and the present moment and there will be guided exercises which will give students the opportunity to learn the skills and techniques involved in both mindfulness and meditation.
