Monday

Breathwork, Meditation & Movement  

7pm - 8.30pm

Lady of Lourdes Church.
Community Building  56,Swanland Road, Hessle HU13 0LY 

Movement encourages the body to open. To unblock stagnant areas.
We need to move for the systems of the body to work effectively.
Just imagine if every day you just sat in a chair in one position, and didn’t move for hours on end. How work that make you feel? Pretty rubbish eh!
Now think about how you feel when you have had a big stretch or a yawn or danced about with your arms waving about…… Yes pretty damn good! When we move we release endorphins, this leads to feelings of euphoria, modulation of appetite, release of sex hormones, and enhancement of the immune response. With high endorphin levels, we feel less pain and fewer negative effects of stress. This is why we move!

Here we see a few benefits of Breathwork. How many would you tick?
Reduces stress and chronic stress related health issues, Improves Brain Health and Cognitive Function, Stimulates creativity and memory, Balances emotions, Promotes better sleep, quality and depth, Relief from anxiety and depression, Lowers Inflammation, Reduces Blood Pressure, Strengthens Your Immune System, Reduces Symptoms of Depression, Strengthens Your Heart,
Increases Aerobic Capacity, Increases Vagus Nerve Activity, Reduces stress,
Increases oxygen efficiency, Increases vitality and energy, Reduces chronic stress related health issues, Promotes Weight Loss.

Every one has different reasons for meditating, it could be for relieving job stress and reducing anxiety of all kinds, minimising physical pain or improving relationships and determining life's direction.
No matter what the stress or anxiety, meditation can provide immediate relief.

 

Tuesdays

Gentle Yoga for Ladies over 60 
1:00pm - 2:30pm
Zion Church, Annexe Building, Hallgate, Cottingham, HU16 4BB

Gentle yoga, is extremely relaxing and helps enhance range of motion. In gentle yoga, the movement is slow, each movement is linked with breath, and we enter into the postures gradually—moving in and out of each pose smoothly and mindfully. This fluidity into postures protects and nurtures the joints, muscles, and connective tissue. With gentle yoga, you explore your pain-free range of motion and find your edge, so you can come safely and comfortably into the pose, depending on what’s right for your body on any given day. Gentle yoga is particularly good for balancing digestive difficulties because its slow, rhythmic movement soothes and relaxes the nervous system. Done regularly, It works to access to tools that help us engage the parasympathetic nervous system so the body can rest and restore. A truly valuable practice for Mind Body and Soul.

Beginners/Level 1  
6:10pm - 7:20pm 
St Nicholas Church, Pickering Rd, Hull HU4 6SA

An ideal starting place to get to know the basics. It’s a how to do class that will give you the physical and spiritual tools to feel comfortable in class and at home with what you are doing with each pose. It can be used as a stepping stone class or it may be just the level you prefer to work at.

Mixed ability - with flavours of Yoga from Iyengar to Vinyasa flow. 
7:30pm - 8:55pm
St Nicholas Church, Pickering Rd, Hull HU4 6SA

This form of Yoga concentrates with a strong emphasis and focus on structural alignment of the physical body through the practice of static asanas and Breath work know as Pranayama. It differs from other styles of yoga in three ways: precision, sequence and use of props. Precision is sought in body alignment in every asana.
It is excellent for building strength and flexibility and is all about quality of movement rather than quantity. To me this style of yoga is the building blocks of all other forms. Suitable for all.

*note - the last class of the month all classes will be dedicated to a much needed Yin Yoga practice. remember to wear loose fitting clothes and bring your blankets and bolsters/cushions for this one.

Vinyasa is a style of yoga where poses are strung together to form one fluid sequence of movement. 

Alignment based Yoga concentrates on a strong emphasis and focus on structural alignment of the physical body through the practice of static asanas.

Yin, is slow, nurturing and just you a chance to let go, reset, rebalance. It's a chance to unravel and breathe.

Somatics, is introspective, to explore, to rebalance, to rewire and remap those holding patterns that are holding you back.

Vinyasa Flow for Mixed Abilities  
7:30pm - 8:55pm 
St Nicholas Church, Pickering Rd, Hull HU4 6SA

Vinyasa is a style of yoga where poses are strung together to form one fluid sequence of movement. The classes are often fast-paced and rhythmical, with a focus on connecting the movements with the rhythm of the breath. Vinyasa means to move with the breath. Often called yoga flow, Vinyasa Flow is a style of yoga with focus on transitions and movements, with less time spent in stationary poses. Although Vinyasa is often considered a fast and physically challenging practice, it can also be soft and gentle. Moving with the breath can also mean slowing down your transitions with deep inhales and slow exhalations. No two classes will be the same, and often the sequences are creative and playful.

*note - the last class of the month all classes will be dedicated to a much needed Yin Yoga practice. remember to wear loose fitting clothes and bring your blankets and bolsters/cushions for this one.
