New To Yoga
Yoga is a great way to strengthen and condition the body leaving you feeling both energised and relaxed. There are enough styles to suit everybody, you just need to find the right ones to suit you.
Slower practises such as yin or slow flow tend to focus on stretching to release tension from the body whilst more dynamic styles such as power vinyasa or Forrest have more of an emphasis on building strength.
Mindful movement is at the heart of the physical practise of yoga, cultivating awareness and tapping into the body’s wisdom are key, standing it apart from other types of exercise.
If you have any injuries or conditions it is advisable to consult your therapist or doctor before starting something new. For any yogic-related questions feel free to reach out to Jenna directly.
