Timetable update: Join Mary Bonett for Gentle Yoga every Wednesday at 11am
At Thaxted Yoga, we like to provide all types of yoga classes so that there is something to suit everyone. This means that we can accommodate all fitness and mobility levels as well as help those suffering from new or historic injuries.
Gentle Yoga on Wednesdays at 11-12:15 is a class that is suitable for all and provides all of the benefits of yoga without lots of physical exertion. This means that students are able to relax in body and mind and relieve stress and tension.
Our lovely teacher, Mary, has been practicing yoga for 16 years. In recent times she has discovered that she can recover from injury and move in a pain free way through careful placement of the body and unlearning and relearning ways in which to move. Mary is keen to pass on these skills so that people attending Gentle Yoga can go about their day with more ease.
Pain in the body can be caused by many different factors and often it is caused by tension, which in turn can be caused by stress. Mary will help you to work with your body and breath to activate the part of the nervous system which brings you to a state of calm, so that over time the muscles and connective tissues in your body can relax and alleviate pain.
It is suitable for all levels – those with an existing practice who are curious about what happens when we move more consciously, and those completely new to any movement practice including yoga, as this class will allow you to reacquaint yourself with your body and it’s movements. It is particularly suitable for those with injury (chronic or acute) and those with mobility issues.
