We are excited to announce that a new 6 week Pilates class will begin at Walford Village Hall. Classes begin on Friday 21st April 2023 and are suitable for all abilities. Booking in advance is essential by contacting Elaine on 07779 797068 or elaine.price@me.com

Pilates is a type of exercise in which you perform a series of controlled movements that flow into one another with precision. As far as what muscles it works, it’s technically considered a total body workout.

In working the entire body, though, Pilates’ movements are primarily designed to target your core muscles. The goal is to be in total control of your body as you move. That requires beginning from your central core muscles and using the stability these muscles provide to smoothly control your arms, legs and other extremities.

This is no easy feat, which is what makes it a great way to build strength and stamina.

Because it focuses on promoting functional strength, the benefits of Pilates extend beyond your workout, improving the way you move in your everyday life.

Yoga Workshop – Yin and Yang Spring Balance

yin and yang workshop walford village hall

Sunday 23rd April – 9.30am – 1pm

Rebalance after a long feeling winter as we relax, energise, and restore mind, body, and soul together. This yoga workshop is designed to leave you feeling like you’ve shaken off the cobwebs of the cold, hard months in every way.

Over 3.5 hours, we shall practise: kirtan, fun vinyasa flow, shavasana massage, relaxing yin yoga, guided meditation. All complemented by Yogi tea and vegan cake halfway through.

The vinyasa flow will be for all levels, with modifications always offered. It will incorporate lots of hip opening to destress, back bending to open up, and arm balances and headstands to challenge yourself in a fun way and build strength and confidence. It will be inclusive of all, from beginners through to intermediates. The idea is to have fun, move, and enjoy it – you do not have to be able to do everything to do so.

The yin yoga workshop will be really accessible, super calm, and the perfect preamble to winding down for the guided meditation. After the higher energy practice preceding it, the yin will feel like the perfect balance of energy and leave you floating into the meditation where the aim is to just LET GO! If you fall asleep, you will not be alone!

Booking will be confirmed upon receipt of payment, bookings can be made online at www.energyogawithhelen.com. Payment is made in the normal way: BACs or cash.
