Yoga for Every Body: Bend and Twist
There’s no need to fear backbends in this accessible flowing yoga class that builds to various poses, including side bends, twists, backbends and forward bends for all over improved spinal mobility.
Yoga for Every Body: Shoulders and Neck
A yummy Hatha Yoga class which flows through a simple sequence to get energy moving in an accessible way. Find freedom and mobility in the upper back, including the shoulders, upper back, neck and chest. You will need a strap, or a scarf will do.
Wrist Relief Class
Typing, texting, sewing, hairdressing or guitar playing? Any and all small repetitive movements build tension in the wrists and forearms. Sometimes even yoga can make these areas feel a bit sore. In this quick, targeting class, we'll release both sides of the forearms and deep into the wrists and hands for instant relief. Can be added onto the beginning or end of a yoga class too!
Short Shoulder and Neck Relief Class
A quick but powerful class, done standing or seated, with just a strap. Create relief and release in the neck, shoulders and upper back - amazingly effective if you've been hunched over a computer.
Yoga for Every Body: Hips and Legs
Targeting the hips in every direction, this inclusive yoga class will help the hips and legs will feel freer. The class is entirely floor-based and opens the front, back, sides and inner hips so is great to wind-down after a long day. You will need blocks, bricks and a strap.
Vinyasa Yoga Flow For Every Body
An accessible and easy-to-follow vinyasa yoga class for every body; all shapes and sizes. It flows through twists, backbends, forward bends, hip work and shoulder work to feel better all over. This class is great if you're needing a slightly gentler vinyasa yoga practice, which is accessible for all bodies. You may need 2 foam blocks, 2 bricks and a strap, although folded towels, a scarf and a book instead work just as well.
Waiting for the Kettle to Boil
A short practice designed to do next to your counter top while you wait for the kettle to boil (or a great short class to step away from your desk). We'll do chair pose, quad and hip/glute stretches as well as some deep breaths. A great way to use the time before your cuppa to feel better, stronger and more at peace.
Five Minute Stress Buster
Just sit down on the floor wherever you are (your office, your kitchen floor, a waiting room or even an airport!) and de-stress for five minutes. You'll be surprised the difference you can feel with very simple breath work, side stretches, twists and deep, relaxing breaths.
Yoga Step by Step 4
The fourth and final class in the Step by Step series builds on the previous three classes. You should be feeling familiar with the poses and sequences, so this simple and clearly cued hatha yoga class creates more of a flow and includes new poses such as navasana (boat pose), ardha chandrasana (half moon) and bridge pose.
Yoga Step by Step 3
Get ready to progress your practice. In the third class in this Step by Step hatha yoga series, you’ll find additions to the first and second classes including sunbathing pigeon, plank pose, high lunge, tree with side bend, seated twist pose, double pigeon and rolling bridge.
Yoga Step by Step 2
The second in a series of progressive steps to building a hatha yoga practice. You will find classic yoga postures throughout this class, starting with supine stretches for the hamstrings and hips (perfect to combat too much desk work or travelling), then spine mobilisation and standing poses to build strength and balance in your yoga practice. Class ends with seated forward bends and twists. Enjoy the ease found from a spacious spine and deeper breaths.
Yoga Step by Step 1
This is the first class in a series for those of starting, or coming back to yoga, or for those who simply want to move with grace and ease. Use this simple yoga sequence to create a spacious body and a mind free from anxiety with simple postures. It is suitable for most bodies. Start lying down with gentle hamstring stretches and hip openers, perfect for combating tight hips resulting from a sedentary lifestyle. Then gently mobilise the spine and learn the basic standing postures, building strength slowly and gently. Finish with seated forward bends and twists and a beautiful savasana. This class is perfect for beginners, but all of us will benefit from the ease of movement and depth of breath from these hatha yoga poses.
Stretch At Your Desk
A short stretch at your desk. This class is great for the middle of the day if you can't get out the office but your body and mind need to wake up. You could even just learn a couple of these simple chair yoga poses to learn for every day. These will help your desk-bound back and hips and help focus your mind.
After Work Or Travel - Rebalance And Restore
A cleverly sequenced and rather beautiful simple yoga class to restore and rebalance your spine after you have been sitting at a desk, sitting in an aeroplane or driving for long periods of time. Suitable for beginners and those tired after a long day. You will need soft blocks and a strap.
