Focus

One of the often overlooked benefits of yoga is the way in which it can improve your sense of balance. The ability to balance in a yoga pose is imperative right from the beginning. Before a pose can be adjusted or improved you need first to be able to balance in that pose. Many of the instructions that you are given as a beginner help you to improve stability and balance. It is important that this focus is not lost as you progress with your yoga practice.

This class focusses on the concept of balance through a range of different poses. In poses like handstand and forearm balance you will be challenging yourself to balance away from the support of a wall. Tips and techniques are shared to help with these inverted poses, as well as other poses where you are balancing on your feet.

Balance is explored in poses that are challenging, but also in more naturally stable positions such as dog pose and Sukhasana. You can expect that this class will help to strengthen and stabilise your body, but of equal importance will be its effect in sharpening your mental focus.
