YOGA CLASSES CARDIFF
AT VICTORIAN STUDIO IN CARDIFF BAY
According to the British Wheel of Yoga, yoga is a system of physical, mental and spiritual practices that originated in ancient India more than 5,000 years ago.
Some of the techniques include prāṇāyāma (breath control or “breathwork”) āsana (postures), relaxation, sound, and other meditation methods. Yoga is a sanskrit word translated as “yoke” or “union.” Its aim is to yoke or create a union of the body, mind, soul, and universal consciousness.
The “physical” part of yoga is only the beginning of what the practice can offer you in your life. If you are recovering from an injury, have a sedentary lifestyle, or suffer with physical pain and/or chronic stress and anxiety, the posture (āsana) and breathwork (prāṇāyāma) will be of great help with bringing the body into balance, along with meditation that will help calm a busy mind. Through regular yoga practice you will tone muscle, strengthen joints and increase bone density.
Yoga can help you find freedom from obstacles life may present to you and help ease past traumas by helping YOU understand YOURSELF physically, mentally and spiritually.
ANYONE CAN DO YOGA.
All are welcome and invited to our classes in Cardiff Bay.
We require all new students to arrive early on their first day of class to complete a health questionnaire and have a short discussion with the teacher prior to attending their first class.
This is a one-hour workshop taught by Danielle, who has over 12 years of experience and knowledge in massage therapy.
After completing this workshop, you will have the skills to give your partner, friend or family member a simple seated massage using the few techniques demonstrated. We will go over a few simple body mechanics, contraindications, and how to communicate with verbal and non-verbal feedback between the giver and receiver of the treatment. We teach this workshop only using a simple chair as most people don’t have massage tables laying around the house. This workshop can be booked for only 2 people or watch our timetable as we may run it on a Saturday afternoon. Cake and refreshments will be provided.
Please keep an eye on the timetable for the workshop if you fancy doing this in a group setting, or it can be booked for 2 people privately or for private events.
*Participants will not be a qualified massage therapist after taking this workshop. This is a taster workshop only.
