Yoga: for Health, Healing and Relaxation
Classes involve gentle stretching exercises using the breath,to tone, strengthen and stretch the body. A guided relaxation session towards the end of the class helps to relax and calm the mind.
Working with your body’s own ability yoga is suitable for all fitness levels and can complement other types of exercise.
Individual and small group sessions are available in addition to classes advertised locally.
Yoga at The Wee Haven
From June 2017 yoga at The Wee Haven will be taking place in our purpose built yurt.
A range of classes are scheduled to take place over the summer period which will be open to guests, the local community and visitors alike.
The yurt will also provide a dedicated space for guests to take part in small group / individual yoga classes tailored to specific requirements: whether it be aching cyclist legs needing to stretch, or some slow chilled restorative or yin yoga, classes can be tailored to individual need.
Small group wellbeing activity sessions incorporating yoga, relaxation and complementary therapies can be arranged on request.
An established number of community classes are currently running locally in North Uist and Benbecula.
Dates are advertised monthly on facebook and in Am Paipear.
Classes are very much on a drop in basis and are suitable for all levels of fitness.
In 2013 I completed my 200hr teacher training with Brenda Louw at ChillOut Yoga, and have been teaching locally ever since.
I teach very much from the heart, having found for myself the benefits of yoga not just to stretch, tone and strengthen the body but also as an opportunity to rebalance body and mind; and come to that quiet space inside we all need to get back to from time to time.
Here at The Wee Haven and in my community classes I hope to share the joy of yoga and encourage others to support their health and wellbeing.
