An All Levels Yoga Class embraces All Levels including Post-Natal.
For the past 20 years, Skip Oliver (founder of whYoga) has been running All Levels Yoga Classes and Workshops and training yoga teachers in the WHYOGA Art of Hatha Yoga Flow. An All Levels Yoga Class embraces All Levels of practitioner, including Pregnancy.
These classes are choreographic creative and original.
The word ‘yoga’ defines ‘unity’ and a class of mixed ability yoga practitioners embraces this definition. A feeling of nurtured camaraderie is one of the most important elements of the Hatha Flow whYoga All Levels class, so that the time set aside for this assisted practice is joyful, safe and moving.
It takes about 6 weeks of once or twice weekly classes for the body and mind to settle into the literal and physical language of Hatha Yoga. After six weeks a yoga beginner will feel a greater mastery over their practice; the mind will stop reasoning and the body will feel and act by its own intelligence. When this occurs the mind is then given the space to engage in present moment awareness; the foundation of living fulfilment.
