Why I don’t teach Vinyasa Yoga and endless Sun Salutations…
So this might be controversial but in my opinion:
1. Doing lots of sun salutations with poor alignment can be hard on the shoulders and wrists
2. I’ve lost count of the number of yoga practitioners who’ve told me they love their Vinyasa but have ongoing lower back pain
3. Whilst fast flowy practice can be great for generating endorphins, it’s often not approached as a mindful or embodied practice
So what is it you’d be doing in one of my classes instead?
Move through a range of movements, but in a slow and controlled way, honouring your own internal edge rather than an external idea of how deep you should go.
Expand your internal awareness into feeling your body more, and into feeling from inside what alignment in poses suits you.
And whilst we might do the odd sun salutation, I promise you we won’t do hundreds of them.
THURSDAY is my main public teaching day, when I offer classes at a variety of levels.
10am-11am is a mixed level group, with a mixture of beginners and people who have some experience of yoga
6pm-7.15pm is an intermediate level group, suitable for those who’ve done some yoga before
7.30pm-8.30pm is an easy level group, suitable for people new to yoga and people wanting a simpler practice
Book your spot to practice with me – either online or in Valley, Anglesey – right here.
