Yoga aims to free your body from muscular tension, improving energy levels, stamina, fitness and flexibility. Yoga calms the mind, relieving stress, improving concentration levels and allowing you to feel more relaxed and in control.
We offer lots of different types of yoga at Evergreen. Below is a brief description of each type to help you choose the class that is right for you:
Hatha is a safe and effective way to promote a healthy and supple body. It combines the use of postures known as asana, with breathing techniques called pranayama and mindful relaxation methods to achieve harmony, balance and a general feeling of well being. Energy levels and the free flow of energy within the body can also be improved. Postures are slow moving and can be modified to enable each student to work in a way appropriate to their individual needs.
Yin yoga Practice consists of mainly sitting and supine postures which are generally held for longer than 'normal'. Poses are held in a relaxed and steady way, increasing the flexibility of the joints, gently stretching and rehabilitating the connective tissues. this approach is conductive to deep relaxation and meditation.
Happy Little Yogi will now be offering a yoga class for the pre teen age group 9 -14 year.
This a time of great change for our children, not only are their bodies changing, but it is also a time when they are becoming more aware of their actions, and expectations.
A lot of pressure can be felt, from feeling self conscious, comparing themselves with others, friendships, a change in hormones and the thoughts and feelings that come with that, they are moving from being a child into an adolescent, and who said that was easy!
At Happy Little Yogi, we promote how uniques and individual we all are and this carries through into these very important years, self belief is key, knowing that we can find a way to help ourselves through these challenges.
Yoga and meditation class does become more focused, but we also look at how to stretch and move our bodies in a way that works for each individual. Routine work is still key and helps the imagination to flow, and the meditation flows to a new level.
Restorative Yoga is a very relaxing style of yoga. Poses are held between 5 & 20 minutes to allow your body to gently stretch and open up. All the poses are sitting or lying down and your body will be fully supported by props. Bolsters, pillows and blankets are used to make poses more comfortable and accessible for your body.
This type of yoga is a relaxing experience for those wishing to de-stress and is excellent for anyone suffering from anxiety, depression and insomnia. Please note, not all poses are suitable for pregnant women.
Adult classes are suitable for men and women of all ages and levels of fitness. Postures can be adapted to suit all needs.
