Yoga teaches; if the mind is agitated and stressed, one’s physical health is compromised.
Seasonal hatha yoga blends ancient yoga practices with a modern seasonal flow. This class will help quieten your mind, develop vitality and find more balance and peace amid the ups and downs of life!
My holistic approach to guiding a yoga class deals not only with the physical body but the mental and emotional bodies too.
Starting with a grounding warm up which includes pranayama (breath control) we will set the scene for our seasonal flow which is a continual stream of asanas (postures) that relate to the current season. You will gain strength and flexibility within the body and build endurance.
The ‘flow’ is designed to stimulate a pair of organs associated with the season which will promote optimal health and wellbeing, strengthening the respiratory and circulatory system. The class will conclude with a cool down and deep relaxation, leaving you feeling rejuvenated for the day ahead!
This class is suitable for all levels.
Maxine has a wonderful way of teaching yoga that is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Maxine’s warm and caring personality makes it such a pleasure to learn from her. She is very attentive to everyone in the class and makes helpful adjustments which I really appreciate. She is sensitive and accommodating of everyone which gives her classes such a lovely atmosphere. I can really feel my yoga improving thanks to Maxine and I always feel very inspired after her classes. I definitely recommend learning yoga with Maxine.
I cannot emphasise enough how much I enjoy Maxine’s class, having started as a total beginner I have found her classes easy to follow and have seen myself improve massively over the months I have been going. She offers a great mix of breath work and dynamic yoga moves. Although the class is challenging at times she always makes sure it’s suitable for all abilities. I always walk away feeling calm, rejuvenated and ready for the day! Highly recommend Maxine, she is a fabulous teacher!
Maxine’s classes are amazing. They are just what I need after a day in the classroom! The classes are relaxing yet there is challenge to them. They are pitched at just the right level for us and they benefit me greatly.
