gentle yoga

This is a class that is dedicated to staying gentle with the focus being to increase mobility in the joints, strengthen the legs, improve balance and do some mild core work.

During the class my students are only expected to come up to stand and back down once so if you are unsteady with your balance don’t worry …. and you can always have a chair at the side of you as well.

Yoga can build bone density which is really critical as we get older and our bones become more brittle and it definitely builds the strength and flexibility that supports structure and improves posture. This practice will give you courage and confidence as you gain strength and balance to sustain an active life.

” The thought of attending a yoga class as a complete novice can be scary. Inflexibility,poor core strength and looking ridiculous in lycra are a few things that cross the mind…..from the second I arrived the environment felt relaxed, gentle music was playing, I could smell the incense and Jane approached me and I felt at ease. The class is a mixed bag of people so feeling self conscious doesn’t matter.”

Rachel Hammond

” Since I attended my first yoga class with Jane several things have happened. I can put my socks on standing up and cut my own toenails for the first time in ten years. My appetite has improved without any weight gain and the circulation in my hands and feet is much better….I often ask myself why did I wait until now before starting yoga.”
