Here is some more about yoga and teacher Helga Gore…

Yoga is an ancient science which works with the body, breath and mind through a variety of exercises and techniques. It offers a rich variety of tools to help us manage and overcome the challenges in our lives with greater ease and insight.

Modern science now confirms the benefits of Yoga in the fields of stress management, cardiac recovery, management of chronic illness, postural and back related problems, and in the alleviation of mild depression and anxiety.

Satyananda Yoga offers a complete system for body and mind, helping us towards a state of greater balance, relaxation and meditation. This helps us get in touch with our innate creativity and joyfulness, and gives us a greater sense of meaning in our lives.

Techniques taught in class include posture work (asana), breath work (pranayama) and deep relaxation (yoga nidra) or meditation.

Helga is an experienced Yoga Teacher and Therapist, who has worked extensively within the NHS and privately.

Classes are suitable for all ages and abilities. Light, spacious venue; friendly atmosphere. Mats provided on request.
