About This Lesson
I am a busy working mum and nana and I understand the stresses and strains of modern life. I have been practicing yoga for 30 years and I love it! The yoga I teach is strong but safe and gentle. It gives you a good workout for your whole body, including positive stretching and breathing. A yoga session also gives you tools for relaxation and managing everyday stress – it even helps you sleep better. I am trained in several different styles and most recently Forrest Yoga – which is based on the understanding that anyone can benefit from yoga and make positive improvements in their overall well-being.
Yoga is a form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.
Yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance.There’s some evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress.
