About the yoga: The style of yoga is Vinyasa flow. Vinyasa is a flowing, dynamic sequence of postures involving the synchronisation of breath with movement. This fluid, creative practice increases flexibility, strength and stamina, calms the mind and improves overall health. Classes will be one hour and cost £12. Each class includes asana (postures with alignment), pranayama (breathing techniques) savasana (relaxation) and an integration of yogic philosophy. Bookings essential.
About the teacher: Gem grew up on Bryher and now has a young family of her own. She is accredited with a 200 hour Level 1 Teacher Training with Yoga Alliance, and has a Level 3 First Aid Qualification.
"I love yoga because through honouring our bodies we honour Nature and all that it is infinite. Everything that happens on the mat is a metaphor for our lives, teaching us patience and grace. Through finding a flow with the breath, life begins to flow. The more you commit to your practice, you commit to being your self. As you face challenges on the mat, you find the strength to face the fluctuations of life. Creating space in our bodies translates as openness in our minds. I wanted to teach yoga to share its transformative power. "
