Introduction to Yoga provides a carefully graduated introduction to yoga practice for students with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
This approach makes yoga practice accessible to those who are beginning a recovery phase. It offers a more slowly paced introduction to yoga than in a general beginners class. It teaches the foundations of yoga practice & introduces body awareness skills that enable students with CFS to ‘work smarter, not harder’.
The physically challenging beginner’s poses are broken down into more accessible forms that build strength & stamina without fatiguing or stressing the body & mind.
There is a focus on releasing techniques & clarity of alignment to minimize unnecessary effort & uncover more energy efficient ways of being.
Yoga props are used extensively to provide adequate support to enable students to enter poses with ease & open the body to the flow of breath & energy.
Classes emphasize mindfulness & self-care, & offer students with CFS a holistic pathway to improved physical & mental wellbeing.
It is recommended that students combine this course with Restorative Yoga as it provides the foundation for the approach used in this more active class.
It is suitable for beginners or students with yoga experience. Students without CFS welcome!
