Beginners Yoga › Zephyr Wildman
We know that yoga can seem intimidating and can seem like it’s a million miles away from what is attainable, achievable or even fun.
We also firmly believe that it really doesn’t matter how long your hamstrings are or whether you can touch your knees or toes or if you’re already in the cirque de soleil. Really that’s not what yoga is about. So what is yoga about?
To Movement for Modern Life, yoga is simply a tool. It is a tool which is guaranteed to make you feel better. Guaranteed. Starting with a little stretch and a little strength, you will find you feel a lot better in your body, and then you may start to breathe. You may start to feel some space in your head. In your life. You may start to feel that things feel possible that you never even knew were. But don’t take our word for it. Just get moving. Forwards ever, backwards never.

Gentle Floor Flow
Stretch Into Freedom
Post Travel Yoga for Hips, Shoulders and Backs
This post-travel sequence is perfect for easing hips, shoulders and backs. Travel does create downward pressure on backs, shoulders and hips, a tightening and weakening of muscles. This class is designed to aliviate pain and discomfort from the travel or from sitting still for lengths of time. A great class after any long journey to stretch out, or indeed after a day sitting in the office.
After Travel: Digest and Stretch
If your gut sometimes feels sore, uncomfortable or 'stuck' after flying, or driving long journeys, this yoga class is for you. Zephyr leads us through some wonderful poses to assist digestion, help the stomach release any tightness and get some circulation back into the limbs. Also includes an amazing anti-sitting stretch. Definitely worth 30 minutes after your journey to arrive with comfort and ease. A couple of foam blocks would be really useful.
Relax and Restore Post-Flight
This supine yoga class, mostly with the legs up the wall will help the body recover from flights by reducing swelling in the legs and feet. This class encourages deep release from tension inducing flights, draining of the fluid and restoration of the circulation for the legs and hips. The poses and relaxation will help you feel fully 'landed' in your new destination. You will need to be near a wall and keep a block or a book and a strap handy.
