Dawn is undertaking her Hatha 200 hour yoga teacher training with the Academy for Yoga Training at the Bath Yoga Studio.
An ideal opportunity for us to practice some yoga and Dawn to learn her craft as a teacher. We now have a regular weekly 40 minute lunch time session. The class involves a short breathing exercise, warm up poses including sun salutes, a variety of standing poses and seated poses always with at least one challenging asana to focus our minds. We have also learnt some poses, with rather strange names, which use the wall as a prop such as frog on the wall or inverted down dog on the wall – look them up! And finally relaxing in savasana or we do a united om chant for a positive start to the afternoon ahead.
‘I have heard a lot about Yoga but have never had the opportunity to try it first-hand. I have been quite amazed at how relaxed I am after the sessions and how enjoyable it has been. It’s also surprised me how challenging and varied some of the exercises have been for something that looks pretty easy when a non-participant.
Dawn, thanks for your tuition it has been excellent for all involved and a great way to spend a lunchtime!’
‘Yoga at lunchtimes has been a revelation. It is certainly harder than I thought it would be but the benefits to wellbeing and conditioning have been immediately noticeable.’
