Ashtanga Yoga with Yogatone

Yogatone is based on a style of yoga known as Ashtanga. It is a flowing form of yoga that builds core strength and leaves the body feeling strong, supple and centred and gives your mind time-out from the stress and strain of daily life to enhance your mental well being.

Many people think you have to be flexible to do yoga. This is not the case. The practise focuses on the breath, core strength and a sequence of postures which warm up our body. A warm body is more flexible and so joints and muscles are mobilised without stress.

The practise follows a set routine; a gentle flowing sequence of standing then seated postures, ending in a blissful deep relaxation session

Why do Yoga?

Because it will tone your body, burn calories, improve stamina, increase suppleness and give your mind a moment of meditation. Yoga is a mind & body activity in one package.

When will you notice changes?

From the very first class you should be aware of a sense of relaxation. You may have some muscle aches the following day but this will pass. Allow yourself a few weeks to start to feel familiar with the structure and postures.

What Do I Need to Wear/Bring?

Wear stretchy comfortable layered clothing. Mats are provided.

What you say about Yogatone

I would like to say how brilliant Les's Ashtanga Yoga class is on Monday evenings. His relaxed, positive style is so far removed from all other Yoga instructors I have had and I think he is outstanding. I wish all Yoga was taught in this way. Thank you.
