Yoga with Elaine Tague
I am a registered Yoga Teacher insured with Yoga Alliance. I have been practising yoga for over 30 years. I am passionate about yoga and its health benefits and believe yoga is for all.
Yoga makes you feel better - physically and mentally! It improves flexibility, strength and balance.
You don't have to be young, fit or skinny, though fine if you are. Poses are adapted for your body or how you feel that day.
I teach Hatha yoga - some would say all Yoga classes are Hatha yoga. That is true, but the term Hatha yoga, in the West, generally refers to a more gentle form of yoga.
If you would like more information on Hatha yoga, or on other types of yoga you can search the web. Here I will explain how it differs from other types of yoga and what you might expect if you attend a class taught by me.
Hatha is more static, that means that poses are held for longer, which can be challenging, so it is not always gentle! In Vinyasa, which includes Power yoga and Ashtanga, postures flow into each other and the poses can be quite challenging in themselves but it can flow beautifully and is a good 'workout'.
Our classes begin slowly and can build into a strong practice - how strong depends on the class, or you, as an individual. The same pose can be expressed in different ways. For example, downward dog using floor, chair or wall.
There may be flow between some postures. We will work with the breath ... and there will be a well balanced range of poses. They may be a theme, for example, working on relieving tension in the shoulders or working towards a peak pose.
Whatever class you join ends with relaxation or yoga nidra, "so relaxed, drifted off again, lol."
