There are many advantages of practising yoga in a group setting.There is usually a sociable atmosphere which can encourage a sense of community where you can share your yoga activity with like-minded people, and make new friends with similar interests. Answers to questions asked by other students may also be helpful to you.
Group classes are less costly than a private 1-2-1 session, although 1-2-1 can be a good place for some people to start, and for those who are less comfortable in a group setting.
If you are visiting Somerset for a holiday break or festivals, and would like some time out, then you will be very welcome to drop into one of these classes or book a 1-2-1 session with me in Street, next door to Glastonbury
By attending a group class regularly for a fixed time every week, you achieve consistency in your practice, and will see physical and mental benefits more quickly. Working in the group environment can help to encourage confidence, while learning to practise postures and other yogic practices correctly is useful preparation for developing a home practice should you wish to continue outside of class.
Some students are very regular attenders at classes, others will drop in from time to time.
A typical yoga class will begin with a short relaxation incorporating a breathing practice, warm up exercises, followed by a variety of postures (asanas), and a final relaxation. Meditation and Mindfulness techniques may be included.
A summary of the postures is usually emailed after the class to help with any home practice you decide to do.
Each yoga lesson will build on the previous one: postures and practices already learned can be repeated (with variations) to fully integrate your learning experience, while new postures can be introduced gradually for a more rounded, varied practice and to maintain your interest.
Occasionally in a group class we work in pairs, which can help to make certain poses more available to you or aid you to safely go deeper into a pose.
