Focus: Although categorised as intermediate, this class is also suitable for people who are brand new to yoga. The class focusses on basic yoga poses that help to promote the health of your lower back. Some gentle shoulder opening poses are also included in the sequence.
The poses should be accessible to most people regardless of age or physical condition. They are designed to gently stretch your hamstrings, strengthen your legs, improve your hip and shoulder flexibility, and assist in relieving lower back discomfort. The all-round nature of the class will mean that it will be an ideal one to regularly repeat.
