Yoga & Relaxation Classes
Our yoga practice begins lying down with a short relaxation to give ourselves a few moments to switch off from whatever has been happening in our busy day, to relax away any tension and to prepare for the practice by beginning to focus on our breathing.
 
Pranayama
Deep, steady, rhythmic breathing is an integral part of yoga practice and we spend a few minutes doing some pranayama exercises.
The sanskrit word pranayama comes from three root words: prana, meaning energy; yama, meaning dicipline or control and ayama meaning extention or stretch. 
"Pranayama thus means the prolongation of breath and it's restraint." BKS Iyengar Light on Pranayama.   
As with all exercise, it is important to prepare our muscles properly for the practice by warming them up, so we begin by working through a gentle sequence which takes the spine through it's natural range of movement. 
 
Surya Namaskar: Sun Salutation
This is the classical sequence to warm the body and prepare for the asana or posture practice ahead.
We flow through a series of movements which warm the whole body – from our fingers and wrists to our ankles and toes and which takes the spine through it's full range of movement.  
There are lots of variations of the sun salute, we will usually practice two: The sun salute is a flow. 
We move in and out of each pose without stopping and as we move we use our breath to lead us – inhaling and exhaling "one move one breath".   
 
Asana: Postures or Poses
The Sanskrit word asana literally means "seat" or "place". Again, using the breath to lead us we move into each asana or posture and once settled hold it for several complete breaths – at first maybe only one or two, but with time and practice building up to five or more.
Asanas can be described according to their characteristics: forward bends; back bends; twists; balances; hip openers, inversions.
They may be practiced standing, sitting or lying down.  
The practice moves through a series of asanas, balancing them with counterposes. 
In the beginners and refreshers course we will progress from basic asanas through variations to the more challenging.   
Both gentle and more challenging options are always given.
 
Weybridge Hall, Elmbridge Surrey Hatha Yoga & Relaxation Classes
 
Savasana: Relaxation  
Savansana (literal translation - corpse pose), is always the final posture of the practice.
We finish as we began: lying down in relaxation. This is the time for the body and the mind to rest, for the breath to slow, to become quiet and still.    
The classic Yoga text, The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, says "With this asana tiredness caused by other asanas is eliminated; it also promotes calmness of mind".

"Nita has had such a positive influence on my pregnancy with the weekly yoga practice.
She always listens and adjusts the practice to the specific complaint at that particular time.
Yoga has helped me tremendously to cope with all the little niggles and discomforts that occur in pregnancy and kept me mobile and aware of my body and the changes in undergoes.
Nita is particularly sensitive and always positive in her approach. A wonderful teacher!"

Postnatal Mum & Baby Yoga Classes
I'm not currently running any public open classes for mother and baby yoga but offering more bespoke postnatal yoga meeting individual needs, that you can bring baby along to! 
The months after birth are an important time for your body. The immense changes undergone during pregnancy and labour take their toll on the muscles, joints and in particular, the pelvic floor. Mother and baby classes are a wonderful opportunity to realign the spine, regain your strength and tone, internally as well as externally.  Bithlight Yoga - Pregnancy & Post-Natal Yoga in Weybridge, Elmbridge & Surrey
Tension in the body and mind is released. Breath work rebalances energy levels and restores calm in the busy and bewildering time of new motherhood.  
The experience of moving through poses with your baby close to you is a beautiful and fun way to get to know each other, building the eternal connection between mother and child. 
If you would like to host a class in your own home in a group or on a one-to-one basis, I am happy to travel a reasonable distance do let me know.
Classes are very relaxed and informal using Birthlight techniques.
