Therapeutic Yoga Classes
Therapeutic Yoga classes ask nothing of you other than to do what you want and be where you are. This style of Yoga puts your brain and body back together in harmony and in the process stress and trauma fall away. Based on the ancient teachings of Yoga these profound and luminous teachings will fill your body and heart with radiant health and glowing joy.
What is included in a class?
At Heartmovements Therapeutic Yoga, Tecoma, classes may start with a body scan and stretching to bring awareness to how your body is feeling in the moment or with an enjoyable warm up to help get your blood and oxygen flowing. This is followed by an energy block release (EBR) designed to release energy blocks within your body. After a short rest we may explore sequences or flowing postures that bring you infinite strength and grace. Or we may indulge ourselves in the silent deep healing of restorative yoga. We may also practice with our body mind somatically to find a deep awareness of any tension to be released. Deep breathing practice leaves you feeling revitalised and centred and we end the class with relaxation or yoga nidra that introduces you to a rich state of contentment and healing silence.
Heartmovements Therapeutic Yoga classes follow a theme that builds upon the previous class. The best results are achieved with regular attendance and commitment to a term of practice.
Heartmovements Therapeutic Yoga is more than a weekly yoga class.
To help fully support your practice Heartmovements Therapeutic Yoga offers you after class follow up. We offer class flexibility, you can mix and match your classes and attend when it suits you. Talk to us about the best way to do this.The classes are friendly and welcoming.
