About Afternoon Yoga

"Hi, I'm Virginia and let me help you end your thursday as you mean to go on: energised!  

My Hatha / Afternoon Yoga class is energising yet balanced focusing on:

  • Alignment in the poses (asanas) to develop strength and flexibility
  • The breath (pranayama) to bring focus, clarity and calm and 
  • Finishing with a restorative guided relaxation to deeply relax. 

Movement is coordinated with the breath resulting in a smooth and steady rhythmic practice benefiting body, mind and soul. Poses take various forms which include: floor seated, on all fours and standing."
