Developing your Home Practice
We recommend regular attendance at classes for new and experienced yogi’s. However if this is not possible with work-life balance let us help you over a few sessions develop a home practice designed to meet your unique needs.
In Mindful yoga we slow down all the way, deepening our attention to the body and breath, allowing ourselves to drop into the full experience of the moment. Mindful yoga sessions are an excellent way to taste mindfulness and to attune to the body. Slowing down with the presence of a sensitive and experienced yoga teacher also gives the opportunity to understand and explore your yoga ‘edge’, and relationship to your body- mind. It is recommended for all yogi’s to regularly slow down and listen with full mindful attention as part of their general practice.Mindful yoga is particularly useful during recovery from an injury and after recovery and in regaining confidence with your body. Sydel works well with other health professionals as part of a team approach. Mindful Yoga has the benefits of stress reduction, prevention and management of depression, healing from trauma and boosts overall health and wellbeing.
Restorative / Therapeutic Yoga
Restorative and therapeutic yoga supports your body to let go of tension and connect to your natural harmony. All of us need on a daily basis to create a safe space to attune to our body, let go and rest deeply for at least 20minutes a day. Restorative yoga supports you to do this, as well as learning how to take care of your hips, backs and knees.
Restorative poses are recommended in times stress and healing, as well, all students ideally need a basic understanding and familiarity with the restorative yoga poses. It is recommended to give yourself time to slow down and de-stress before your general practice.
