Build Strength, Stamina and Flexibility
This class is an introduction to Forrest Yoga for those that have not studied with us before, either as complete beginners new to Yoga or for those looking to transfer from other styles to this dynamic and exciting format.
Forrest Yoga is a modern style of Yoga that helps you to achieve more, and develop more quickly, while teaching you to care for yourself and recognise your strengths and abilities, understand your objective in Yoga, and find ways to expand your capabilities.
With support from Conrad Freese and assistant Hazel Wilding (both Forrest Yoga teachers) you will have the support you need to accelerate your development. Poses are demonstrated and clearly explained in a way that helps you to understand the objective of the pose, not just the shape. Forrest Yoga uses a vast array of different poses to explore your body and test your limits while remaining a safe practice for all – we include variations for those with health issues including pregnancy. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Yoga and your health.
Mindful Awareness, Conscious Focus
Each class adds to your knowledge of Yoga, starting with the foundations of breath and feeling, working up to greater challenges while maintaining control and ensuring your safety.
By building your knowledge about Yoga it makes it easy for you to focus inward on what you are doing in class, rather than looking to see what others are doing! This inward awareness, known as mindfulness, is one of the products of Yoga that helps people to feel calmer and more relaxed off the mat.
Relax, Recover and Revive
With the poses identified in English (rather than Sanskrit) you’ll feel more comfortable and find it easier to remember what’s what, without the added pressure of learning another language.
In these classes we aim to help you enjoy Forrest Yoga and its healing benefits, help ease tension from the body and give you tools to find peace of mind. I look forward to you joining us.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Conrad directly.
