"Sometimes your joy in the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy" - Thich Nhat Hanh
Hey Yogis! Summer is a time when many of us head off on holiday to find rest and relaxation and a change of scenery in an attempt to escape our non-stop, 'yang' lifestyles. But why not indulge and recharge with Respira Yoga right here, on your doorstep?

Wondering what a Respira Yoga class feels like?
"Isabelle's classes are heaven. Come and join us".

"Thank you Isabelle, for introducing me to yoga and helping me to find my inner strength and peace".
"Have been loving the classes, couldn't ask for a better teacher".
If you haven't yet made it to a class and are still not convinced that yoga is for you then be sure to take a look at the reviews!
Pose of the month - Reclined bound-angle..
If you've been coming to class you'll know that we usually begin in Supta Baddha Konasana (reclined bound angle pose) an incredibly releasing and relaxing pose. Reclined, resting poses in Yoga seriously renew your energy as they create openness in your body and calm the nervous system.
Yoga in general teaches us that getting to grips with the practice of relaxation is one of the most important things that you can do for your health and for your mind.
Supta Baddha Konasana lets you stretch out the inner thighs whilst opening the hips and enhancing circulation to the vital organs of elimination and reproduction in the lower belly. It also creates a mild chest opening and calms the nervous system. And it feels wonderful! What’s not to love about this pose? One for your home practice definitely!
I look forward to seeing you on the yoga mat soon. Wishing you a fabulous summer full fun and rest!
