Yoga and Yamuna Body Rolling
Hatha Yoga with the fantastic addition of Yamuna Body Work. We will focus on something specific every week whether it be alignment, method or a particular area of the body. Sometimes we will start on the ball to open the body, create space and align and then move into our asana practice. Sometimes we will start with Yoga. We always finish with Body Rolling. All levels welcome. Excellent if you have specific problems/ injuries or recurrent body tension. Body Rolling works quickly in a very detailed and focused way. Relaxing and rejuvenating.
A very unique class not only in Leeds but also in the UK. There are only a handful of Yamuna practitioners in the UK and Nichi is dedicated to bringing this fantastic bodywork to her Yoga students. Combining Hatha Yoga with body rolling allows the student to really release, align and find stillness and lightness in their Yoga practice. Yamuna Body Rolling uses a set of specifically designed balls to stimulate bone and release tension from muscles, fascia and ligaments. The effects are instant and repeating the Yoga postures once we have rolled will enable the student to experience this transformation. Your alignment will improve as well as your ability to breathe more deeply and freely. We will always roll the legs and back and you can expect focus on shoulders and neck as these are the areas where we hold most tension. You will gain a deeper understanding of your anatomy and of your body from taking this class.
All classes are held at our beautiful Chapel on Meanwood Road, Leeds. Parking is available in our car park and at the front of the building for up to 2 hours. Outside office hours you can park at the back or in the car park across the road.
