Yoga for Stretch and Relax:
Fridays and Saturdays 11.15 am
In this class we combined deep and yet easy stretches using yoga props (chairs, blocks, belts, bolsters) and restorative poses to release the stress of your week, increase flexibility, range of movement and posture.
We help you to create body awareness so you can easily adjust your posture during your normal day to avoid unnecessary tension in the muscles and areas more prone to generate physical pain (back, neck and shoulders).
Finish this class with a wonderful relaxation that will leave you fresh and renewed, ready to enjoy your weekend to the fullest!
This class is highly recommended if you work sitting at a desk, study or drive for long periods.
Also if you practice sport and need to increase flexibility and focus.

Benefits of Yoga Practice:
Range of Motion: Yoga can keep the body's joints, tendons and ligaments lubricated and can improve range of motion, which allows you more mobility and agility. You have better balance and are less likely to fall and injure yourself. These benefits are important at any age, but especially critical as you get older.
Better Circulation: Yoga activities come better circulation of blood throughout the body, including to the joints and muscles. This yields quicker healing of any muscle injuries and more nutrients coming to the muscles at all times.
Pain Relief: Yoga can provide relief from back pain and arthritis. For lower-back pain, stretching the quadriceps and hamstrings as well as the hip and pelvis muscles can contribute to relief. Stretching and yoga can also ease headache pain by improving circulation and oxygen flow to the head. The relaxation aspect of stretching and yoga may also contribute to pain reduction.
Relaxation: Yoga can be antidotes to stress, as they ease and loosen tight muscles and offer a sense of well-being and tranquility. In addition to the physical ways these exercises can provide benefits, the mental calm also contributes to relaxation. Some people have used yoga to cope with issues like anxiety and depression.
Improved Posture: Better posture is another benefit to yoga. Tight muscles can contribute to bad posture, but stretching those muscles can improve alignment in your back and help posture. The particular areas of stretching that yield these benefits are the chest, shoulders and lower back.
