Karen, who is Joe’s delightful wife and talented Yoga teacher, and Emma, our excellent Pilates instructor, are offering free online Healthy Options classes on Zoom. What better way to get through the lockdown by working on your health at home?
To join the class, make sure you have the correct meeting ID and passcode for Zoom, both of which you can find below. Make sure to join in at the start of the class, otherwise you won’t be able to get in!
Most classes are interactive meetings, where you don’t just see the instructor but also the other participants, and they can see you (provided you turn on your camera). To enter these classes, you need to use the website from Zoom or install their application. You can find more information and register for free on the Zoom. The only exception is Friday’s Stretching for Sailors class, which is live on YouTube and is more like a broadcast.

This class will run as a course from 5th May, however feel free to drop in and out as you like but please do be advised that joining week on week for a month will have the most benefit. In this class we will look at the use of our breath, the technique of the main groups of postures and how to modify them - including standing, backbends, twisting, seated and supine postures. How we can create safe transitions in our sun salutations and how we can modify them and progress our practice. It will aim to build not just flexibility but also strength and stability through your practice. We will also lightly explore our meditation practice and how to build this practice up over time. This class aims to assist you in building a solid foundation in your yoga practice, I hope it will enable you to feel confident in a group all level hatha or flow class in the future.
