“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.” - Thich Nhat Han
RESPIRA YOGA AT HOME
During these incredibly tough times we need our yoga practice more than ever. Indeed Harvard medical school in the US is now recommending yoga, meditation and controlled breathing to address anxiety issues related to the novel coronavirus.
Let these classes be your much needed escape & sanctuary away from what is going on in your life. 70 minutes out of your week to calm & nourish your mind, body & spirit.
We are so grateful for your unfailing support during this time which has been a rollercoaster for us in the yoga world, as it has for most. We are hosting our regular yoga classes live via ZOOM.
Pricing is £50 per month giving you access to a deeply nourishing yoga class every day of the week.
Please transfer into the usual bank account referencing your name (avoids PayPal fees). Please drop me an email if you need me to send you these bank details.
If you are new to Respira Yoga please Email us here to book: These classes are not suitable for pregnant students.
- Try to find a space where you won't be disturbed. Put on some ambient lighting. If you prefer to practice with music you can maybe put on a little music in the background. Feel free to use my Yoga Playlist.
- By clicking the link you are sent, Zoom should open. If it asks you download an app or piece of software please do.
- Class will begin at the time stated, however please arrive to the class 10 mins early to ensure you are set up. Once the class has started we will not be able to stop and answer questions as all participants will be muted. I’m afraid that if you arrive after the start time the meeting will be locked and I will not be able to stop teaching to let students in.
- Please make sure that you are on mute by checking that the mic icon in the bottom left hand corner of your screen is disabled. You can chose to have your video off if you prefer although it is helpful for the teacher to see your practice.
- Injuries and any illnesses are to be adjusted to at your own discretion. As we are not with you at the time of your practice we cannot give advice during class unfortunately or come to any aid. If you are unsure or do not feel well, please choose to practise safely or not at all.
- Please let me know in advance of any medical problems or if you have any questions. Please mention any relevant medical history (e.g. heart problems, respiratory problems, blood pressure, arthritis, back problems, neck problems, pregnancy, detached retina, prolapsed disc, cancer, any serious injuries in the past, whether fully healed or not, etc). Also mention if you are currently on any medication.
- Please consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Myself and Emma can not be help responsible for any injuries or illnesses that result from partaking in these online classes. It is absolutely essential that you practice safely & listen carefully to your body.
