Staff Yoga

Staff Yoga 700x350 - Cartoon brain meditating

Every Tuesday, 12 noon - 1

Meditation

Rebecca will be guiding meditations each week. We will be doing a variety of practices, including mindfulness of breathing, walking meditation, body scan, loving-kindness, compassion, joyful appreciation. You may sit in a chair or lie down, if you need to. We can provide yoga mats on request. You might wish to bring a shawl, blanket, or something else to keep you warm, if you tend to feel the cold when sitting for more than a few minutes.

Yoga 

Each week we will be guided through a short flow sequence via an online yoga tutorial video. The tutorials will change each week, along with the instructors, and will include everything from traditional hatha poses to those fundamental asana followed in ashtanga yoga.  This session is aimed at beginners/intermediates and will run for approximately 20-25 minutes. You do not need any previous experience to attend but it is advisable that you listen to your body and take rest when you need it. Please bring your own mat and any blocks/straps you use as part of your home/studio practice.
