EXERCISE FOR BODY & MIND...

A traditional and ancient form of exercise and mindfulness, Yoga enjoys widespread acclaim in the fitness and health community.  To many practitioners it is an exercise at once spiritual and physical.  For the scientific it is seen as a valuable tool to promote muscular health and maintain flexibility. 

We offer a variety of Yoga classes at OMH,  taking place Monday to Friday with breakfast, lunchtime and evening sessions to suit your schedule and needs.

Yoga for Body, Breath and Mind

Mondays 6.15 - 7.15 pm

Teacher: Jenny Rose

This slower moving class is open to all levels and provides a welcome end to a Monday, giving you chance to move slowly and mindfully, to get back into your body, use your breath to release any physical, mental or emotional blocks and make more space for you.

Drawing on her study in Yoga Therapeutics and Mindfulness, Jenny develops sequences that target particular areas of the body, with the intention to open up in one or two particular areas each week, such as shoulders, hips, or even hands, fingers and feet. The classes are slower moving and can be taken at each students own level of intensity and depth. Due to the slow pace, beginners are welcome. Do be prepared to find points of stuckness in the body, or to reach points of strength being built -- both of which can be uncomfortable for a moment -- but ultimately lead to more strength and space.

The class has a meditative quality in both its opening, movement, closing, and breath work. Jenny creates a calm, safe space for all students to take what they need from the practice. The focus is on introspection, feeling and coming home to your self on your mat, rather than moving through a fast flowing Vinyasa - but as always, strength and deep release can be found. Mats can be provided. Spaces are limited.

PRICE: £12 drop in, £50 for 5 class pass, £90 for 10 class pass

Yoga Foundations

WEDNESDAYS  5.30 - 6.30 pm

TEACHER: Jenny Rose

Yoga Foundations is a perfect class for beginners, anyone new to yoga, and those looking to strengthen the foundations and go deeper in their current yoga practice.

Jenny works through different areas of the body each month, building strength and stamina in different postures. One month we may work on upper body strength, looking at correct allignment and engagement in downward dog, and how these same muscles help in arm balances and headstand; another month we may focus on lower body looking at leg and glute strength, key standing asanas, working towards more fun balances like half-moon. There is a real sense of community in class, with the same students attending almost each week, and a sense of building on a solid practice with a flow from week to week. The class is drop in, and it's okay to drop in as you can; but students will get the most benefit and notice the most improvement in their practice if they attend regularly. Jenny brings a mix of understanding anatomy and allignment, having fun, buliding strength, opening stuck areas like hips and shoulders, and always focussing on breath work and ending in meditation, giving a complete physical yoga practice each week.

Mats can be provided. Spaces are limited.
PRICE:  £ Drop in £12, 5 class pass £50, 10 class pass £90.

Each week we will bring a new focus to our class, allowing you to work deeply into different areas of discomfort or stiffness and leave feeling soft and open.

Teacher: Kat Aydin (Karma Yoga Edinburgh)

If you're feeling the need to hit pause, calm your busy mind and allow yourself to rest in the present moment, then this is the session for you.

Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic style of Yoga that uses props (bolsters, cushions, blankets, eye pillows) to support the body, encouraging deep relaxation. Restorative yoga is best described as - active relaxation. The session is gentle, deep and slow, focusing on opening and stretching the body letting each body to find its own most natural way to open up helping it to restore and relax itself. Restorative Yoga switches you from the sympathetic nervous system (fight, freeze, flight) to the parasympathetic nervous system (rest, relax, and digest response) within 15 minutes. This style of Yoga helps you cope with everyday stress, insomnia and anxiety by using some of the most powerful yet simple poses in Yoga. A 90 minute Restorative Yoga practice is equal to 4 hours of sleep!

This session complements an active Yoga practice and anyone can practice Restorative Yoga, regardless of age, shape or physical condition, even those with no Yoga experience. The poses are designed to be comfortable. Music and aromatherapy enhance the experience, encouraging a total sense of letting go.

PRICE: £20 per person
