Even better, they include a glass of granny’s homemade lemonade specially brewed for the session.

Session One: Root and Reach
9 May 2020, 3-5pm
Explore foundational and standing poses, which form the blueprint of most yoga practices, in this session. Learn how to use your feet, activate your core, and understand the principles behind feet and hip alignment. While appreciating alignment principles, you will also learn how to modify alignment to better suit your unique body.
Session Two: Hips, Shoulders and Pitfalls
16 May 2020, 3-5pm
Being able to become mobile in the hips and shoulders is one of the many aims of a yoga practice. Our pelvis serves as the fulcrum of our body. Having a set of mobile, strong and stable hips helps to provide lightness in the spine and anchor our legs. However, practising incorrectly or without a good understanding of how the hips work may cause injury and set you back.
Session Three: Spinal Extensions and Twists
26 May 2020, 3-5pm
The spine is capable of many different ranges of motion but our typically modern sedentary life has severely limited that. Spinal extensions, or backbends are not a movement we commonly make in daily life yet they are the best types of movements to invigorate and enliven the body and our energy. Twists are wonderful postures for alleviating tension in the spine and spinal muscles. Learn how to lay the best foundation for these movements.
