Free Yoga Wellbeing Group – Paignton

24th May at 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Step One Charity logo

Starting May 24th 2024, running for 6 weeks. 

 

We invite you to start a new journey of self-discovery with BeWell@StepOne with our 6-week wellbeing beginners yoga program.

 

What will be covered?

Yoga offers many benefits, both physical and psychological, embracing the philosophy of Chinese medicine, and new in these sessions will be a greater focus on Yin.  Latest inclusions will encourage consideration of longer, deeper stretches and rehabilitation, attuning to the parasympathetic nervous system to a greater degree. We will look at relaxing (pranayama) with muscle relaxation (yoga nidra) alongside meditation.

 

When is it?

The first session takes place on Friday, 24th May. The sessions will take place between 9:30 and 10:30am every Friday for 6 weeks.

Session dates: May 24th, May 31st, June 7th, June 14th, June 21st, & June 28th

Please ensure you can commit to all 6 dates before signing up.

 

Where does it take place?

Shekinah Grow, Preston Down Rd, Paignton (entrance opposite the Occombe Farm public Car Park.)

 

Who can take part?

The sessions are aimed at all abilities regardless of age/health status, with an aim of inclusivity.  All postures will be adapted, and different levels will exist to incorporate everyone in the group. Please note, we kindly ask that all potential attendees check their availability for all 6 sessions prior to enrolling, as spaces will be limited. 

 

Who will be teaching?

Your instructor will be an experienced Fitness Instructor qualified in Level 3 Yoga as well as Pilates, having a degree in Exercise, Science & Fitness. They are also a qualified First Aider.

 

What will be provided?

Good quality cushioned mats are provided, and gentle ambient music will support sessions over a related sound system.

 

We’d love to meet you. Why not try something new, support your wellbeing and give it a go?

 

Pre-enrolment is required to participate on this course.
