When & Where?
Beinspired runs weekly general Hatha yoga classes for adults (and teenagers) and yoni yoga classes at both St Martin's Community Centre (upstairs) and St Peter's Community Hut (by the Post Office but please don't park in the Post Office designated spaces!) . You can view our monthly timetable below. We would ask that students turn up at least 5 minutes before the start of the class. It is also recommended not to eat 2 hours prior to class.
All classes cost £10 drop-in for adults and £6 for students, or you can buy a block of 5 tokens in advance for £45. Payment can be made by cash/cheque/online. Price will be increasing to £11 for adults from January 2017.
Because yoga is amazing! It just makes you feel better somehow, both energised and calm, stronger, and more flexible and balanced in body, mind and spirit. Yoga is non-competitive and all it asks of you is to turn up exactly as you are and practice, practice, practice…
What to expect?
Emma likes to mix things up so we don't create yet more habits. Sometimes she teaches a flowing and dynamic form of Hatha yoga, and sometimes she teaches a more static form of Hatha yoga. She also teaches a few classes just for women - yoni yoga (click here for more info). Regardless of the approach, Emma encourages awareness of breath and energies of alignment so that one can experience the transformative, healing and uplifting effects of yoga for oneself.
Emma teaches in an empathic and intuitive way, allowing a nurturing, safe and supportive environment which allows students of all levels (including beginners) to deepen their practice, encouraging greater awareness of body, mind and soul and the need to take responsibility for our own health and wellbeing and the impact we can have on the world we live in.
What to wear?
Comfortable tightly fitting gym clothes such as t-shirts/vest-tops with leggings or shorts are recommended, together with a jumper and socks for relaxation. Please respect the yoga space when you enter by leaving your shoes by the door, classes are practiced barefoot.
What about injuries?
Yoga has been used since ancient times as a holistic method for preventing and healing injury and illness. However it is extremely important that you please let the teacher know, in confidence, of any injuries and medical conditions before the class commences.
What if I am pregnant?
Beinspired only accepts pregnant women with an existing yoga practice into our general classes during their second and third trimesters. We can highly recommend classes with Anita Davies who is also a local doula, you can contact her firstname.lastname@example.org. It is essential that you let the teacher know, in confidence, that you are pregnant regardless of the stage of pregnancy.
Yoni Yoga - to support the sacred feminine
Yoni yoga is a deliciously nourishing, empowering, nurturing and revitalising approach to yoga for women of all ages and stages of life whether maidens, mothers, enchantresses or crones! The practice provides us with the opportunity to move from contraction to expansion to help illuminate and wake up to our own inner wisdom, feminine intuition, creativity and wellbeing. The practice is soft, flowing and gentle incorporating various yogic techniques to support women’s health, healing and natural cycles.
