Insode Out Yoga

Inside Out Yoga

After a brief centring exercise and warm-up, Cathy will offer precise instructions for engaging the deep core while we do mindful flow. In addition to this vinyassa flow, she will teach a few therapeutic Yoga poses that you will hold for a few breaths. It will be a complete Yoga experience, in that you will also have Pranayama (breathing techniques) and a short relaxation at the end.

She will be teaching each pose and sequence as you go along, but this class is not suitable for absolute beginners unless you have a reasonable level of fitness. It is best suited for those with some Yoga experience, or those with no serious health issues."
