Yoga at St Swithuns, Worcester City Centre is a fabulous yoga space. Join us straight after work either online or in person. Time for yourself is vital and, to assist with the stresses of everyday life, yoga is a super addition. St Swithuns in Worcester City Centre is so easy to find and is a super venue with accessible facilities.
Classes start with Pranayama breathing techniques to help cleanse and detox our internal organs. Deep abdominal breathing will be taught and ideally adopted in everyday life. Breathing in and out through the nose is hugely encouraged as the hair follicles and mucus membrane act as natural filters.
The breathing techniques move on to Anuloma Vuloma, alternate nostril breathing. Listen to the instruction to ensure the right nostrils are being used at the right time, especially if you are online. Our minds are so often busy that emptying them is a real challenge, pranayama can help do just that and, assists you with meditation and quietening your mind.
Kapalabathi breathing is an advanced breathing technique taught when students are comfortable with breath retention. This not only assists with cleansing the internal organs but, also weight loss, alongside regular exercise and a healthy diet of course.
Asana is the physical bit known as yoga and is tailored to suit all levels. The majority of postures taught are demonstrated so if you are online and unsure, watch the demonstration but just as important listen to the instruction. Discomfort is encouraged but never pain so it is so important to listen to your body and recognise that our bodies change daily.
Yoga at St Swithuns City Centre Worcester finishes with a gorgeous 20 minute guided relaxation. Students adore this part which is as essential to yoga as the physical bit and the breath work.
Remember it is not about the end result but, the journey. You will be given more and less strenuous options depending on how you are feeling so go ahead, challenge yourself if you are in the mood on the day or chose to take it easy.
We are all built and shaped differently so work with your body. Yoga is not a competitive practice so do not compare yourself with anyone or, how you were once upon a time.
Compliment your current fitness regime with a traditional practise and see and feel the benefits. Connect with friends and family around the country or globe and do Yoga together by choosing the online option.
