Here Sal explains more about the class:
Hello, my name is Sal and I teach one of the movement classes called vinyasa yoga,
This class is a movement-based class where we stretch and move and get the whole body working through a range of easy exercises which can be adapted so it’s perfect or beginners.
If you’ve not done exercise for a while or you’re working through weight issues or pain issues then this class will be very helpful. My class is really about helping you bring awareness to your body and helping you move with more ease and comfort. A lot of the exercises really help get rid of physical tension and tightness which can reduce aches and pains. In the class, I teach so you can go to your own pace and hold back if you need to meaning you can enjoy the class and feel safe. Many of my students say they’ve gained a lot of confidence doing these classes as they move better, feel better and this has significant effect on your mood, stress levels and helps you feel good for the rest of day.
My approach to teaching is light-hearted and encouraging and I like to make you feel welcome and safe so you can get the benefits of this practice and leave feeling calm and confident. I whole-heartedly encourage you to come to a class and see for yourself and I welcome any questions in advance so please get in touch.
I look forward to seeing you at class. Sal
