What to Expect
Each class begins with a few minutes of relaxation. You will then be guided through various asanas, including standing poses, sitting poses, back bends and recuperative poses. You will be shown how to use props (e.g. blocks and belts) to help you achieve the poses to the best of your ability. The class ends with relaxation and pranayama (breathing) techniques.
All equipment is provided at the locations in Cheltenham. Please bring a mat and blanket to the Bishop’s Cleeve venue and also blocks when you have them.
What to wear
Wear anything comfortable – leggings or shorts and T-shirts are most suitable. We work in bare feet.
Food And Drink
Leave 3-4 hours after a main meal and 1-2 hours after a light snack. Please drink water before or after class rather than during it.
Other Points Val will need to be informed of medical conditions and any injuries. Students undergoing treatment with a doctor, osteopath or chiropractor must liaise with Val. If you are menstruating there are certain postures that are not suitable, so please let Val know.
