    Strength & Mobilise: The Lower Body

    Andrew McGonigle

    A full, strengthening yoga class which focuses on increasing foot, ankle, knee and hip mobility and strength. The focus is on mobilising joints in their full range, with an emphasis on strength rather than stretch. Often we feel a tightness which we assume needs a stretch, but often actually strengthening is needed! Dr Yogi shows us strengthening movements which we can use in our daily practices.Class starts slowly with gentle,small somatic movements and continues as a somatic/hatha yoga class. You will need foam blocks and a brick and a yoga strap or a towel. If you have a theraband, that would be useful for this class.
