Yoga can help you to feel better about your body as you become stronger and more flexible, toning your muscles, reducing stress, and improving your mental and physical well-being. It can help you to lose weight not just by burning calories but also by helping you become more attuned to your bodies needs and requirements. Increased body awareness and decreasing stress and tension can all help us to make healthier choices. Feeling and looking healthier are the side effects of regular yoga practice!
Relaxation and yoga postures can be adapted to help with weight management, motivation, energy levels and self confidence. Classes will often be combined with an emphasis on core strength allowing your body to gradually develop its own natural corset. This supports your posture, helps reduce injury risk, and improves your physical appearance.
Tabitha can provide information on nutrition and activity levels as well as a support and individual weight management sessions. Tabitha is a weight management specialist and can advise and support students on their weight management journey to living a life looking and feeling younger, happier and healthier.
Yoga is much more than postural alignment and breathing.
It is is a direct experience of the vast interrelatedness of all life and of all things. You will feel at peace at the end of a class because there is a natural realignment of your body which leads to a natural realignment of your perception of life and of who you are. It is about transformation helping you to notice the beauty in the world around you. Genuine yoga will change your life, your habits, your body, your health, your mind, your breathing patterns, your attitudes, your outlook. It is about learning from direct experience. You will develop understanding of how your body works most efficiently. You will learn how your conscious and unconscious mind can either support or harm you and how to quiet the conversations we have with ourselves.
Through steady practice, you will manifest less self-importance, less material attachment, more capacity for joy, less judgmental, and more tolerance toward others. If you stay with your practice long enough, you may find you change, becoming kinder and more accepting to yourself and the world around you. This flexibility and strength of mind occurs alongside the flexible strong body more commonly associated with yoga!
Practicing with a properly trained teacher will give you a feeling of energy, renewal and well-being and over time the ability to feel in control of yourself. The postures within the physical practice are unique in that no areas of the body are omitted from being used, including fingers, toes, eyes and internal muscles. A fully rounded practice will develop long lean muscles, which have stamina and strength, and healthy digestive and reproductive organs. Many postures use a combination of the breath and the body's own weight and awareness to develop strength in both the body and in the mind. Flowing sequences working with the breath develop flexibility and fluidity, which help to keep the whole body healthy and improve alignment. Attention to detail and inner focus helps develop body awareness in postures and this is then taken into day to day life. Regular practice encourages a feeling of health, happiness and a lighter life mentally and physically.
