One student's story beginners

Ros Harvy

Ros, what brought you to yoga?

It was a bit haphazard really. I started with a Pilates class, to address ongoing lower back problems. That led me to something called a "yogalates" class, which eventually led me to open the door to the Yoga Path studio, in the somewhat over optimistic view that I could "do" yoga. Luckily Tom and Nicole were very welcoming and patient. With their encouragement and a little persistence, (OK a lot of persistence), I began to appreciate the scope of Yoga and to challenge my body and mind to push against the constraints of stiff joints, muscles and inflexible beliefs about what I could or couldn't do.
 

How has practising Yoga helped you?

Well it has definitely increased my flexibility and those lower back pains gradually disappeared, but I would say that the biggest change has been to my peace of mind. Also Yoga is one of the few things in my life that I have really had to work on and have stuck with - previously if I couldn't master something quickly I would move on.
 

What keeps you coming back to Yoga Path?

I like the warm and inclusive environment at Yoga Path; I enjoy the camaraderie of the other students and the challenge and variety in the practice. I love the fact that Tom and Nicole take Yoga seriously, but don't take themselves too seriously.

What is Iyengar Yoga?

Iyengar Yoga is esentially Hatha yoga as taught by BKS Iyengar, one of the great yoga teachers of our time. Hatha Yoga is the physical form of the ancient Indian practice of yoga; Hatha Yoga as interpreted by Iyengar emphasises postural alightment within Asana, the yoga poses. The word yoga itself, means union. This reflects the ultimate goal of yoga, being the realisation that individual consciousness is, in fact, one with universal consciousness. Hatha Yoga focuses on the union of yoga to evolve the body/brain connection through physical exercises and breath-control to encourage better health and mental and spritual clarity over the long term.

What happens in class?

In class we place special focus on developing strength, endurance, flexibility, and correct postural alignment, while learning to engage the energy of the breath. Differing individual needs of age and fitness are acknowledged.

What are the benefits of yoga?

Hatha yoga helps to generate physical, mental and emotional balance. Students often experience a better sense of health through greater body awareness. Strength and flexibility generally improve with practice, along with stress reduction, better mental health, and improved circadian rhythm.

Do I need to bring anything to class?

As we navigate Covid-19 management protocols, during this transitionary period of re-opening the studio, students will need to bring their own basic yoga props to class including their own mat, two yoga blocks and a yoga belt. Students are asked to also BYO clean pillowcase to cover studio pads and bolsters (these will be the only props available for student use). Hand sanitiser is provided for students to sanitise before and after handling in-house props. Basic yoga props are available for purchase from the studio.
