WHAT IF I CAN'T ATTEND THESE CLASSES? If you cannot attend the classes above, then here are some suggestions about other ways you can practice:
Private Yoga and / or Capoeira classes If you would prefer to have private classes, please contact Chris on firstname.lastname@example.org / 07521298488
Practising Yoga at home It's good to complement the work you do in Yoga class by developing your own practice at home - here are some ideas to get you started:
Zenways YouTube channel - Free Yoga and Meditation videos by Zenways
Zenways Shop - You can buy Zen Yoga full length class videos or other materials for self study here
Spontaneous Yoga - my favourite practice & perhaps the truest form of Yoga - simply get out your Yoga mat, and follow your own body's intuition, adapting your movements and postures to what your body is asking for. When your awareness is centred on the body, its energy and needs, it is naturally drawn into the present moment.
Other resources - if you prefer a more structured approach, then there are plenty of Yoga books and YouTube videos out there. I have enjoyed practising with Richard Hittleman's 'Yoga 28-Day Exercise Plan' (good introduction to Hatha Yoga) as well as Dagmar Spremberg's YouTube videos (intermediate Vinyasa style) & Cyndi Lee's book 'Yoga body, Buddha mind' (with sequences for beginners, intermediate & advanced). If you choose the self study route, do please remember to go gently!
