What we do

Classes

Yoga Warrior offers Forrest Yoga, Aerial Yoga & Hatha Yoga Classes in South Lanarkshire. There are limited mats available if you don’t have your own. Bring along a blanket for your relaxation. It is also best not to eat a heavy meal up to 2 hours prior to attending your class and wear loose clothing. Prior to attending any of the classes we require you to contact us directly so that we can discuss any health concerns you may have. We also recommend you consult with your Doctor before attending any class.

Forrest Yoga was created by US yogi Ana Forrest. It is a fantastic, intense practice which can help you to cleanse and release tension from the body and draw your attention inwards. We will ignite the fire within your body with Forrest Yoga Abs and use the yoga postures to release tension from your neck and shoulders as well as building muscle strength.

These classes are suitable for beginners as several options to postures will be given. Props are essential in Forrest Yoga and some props will be available. If you have a block, strap and rolled up bath towel or blanket please bring these along. Yvonne runs a Forrest Yoga Class on a Thursday morning at 10.30 am to 11.30 am at St Brides Centre, Douglas.

Aerial Yoga incorporates the use of an Aerial Hammock. Yoga Warrior uses Aerial Silks as they provide optimum performance for the user. The yoga hammock provides support to your body in each pose so although Aerial Yoga can be challenging you can use the hammock to support you as much as you need. We also do inversions in the hammocks which allows your neck and spine to decompress.

Yvonne runs an Aerial Yoga class on a Tuesday evening at Wiston Village Hall at 7pm to 8 pm and booking is essential. Please wear long sleeved top and remove all jewellery.

Hatha Yoga is a gentle practice and is suitable for beginners and is fantastic for improving your breathing, strengthening your joints and improving your overall well being. Yvonne will lead you through your poses with long holds and breath work to help build strength into your muscles and joints. There is also a 20 minute relaxation incorporated into this class that will leave you feeling blissfully restored.

Join Yvonne at St Brides Centre, Douglas on a Wednesday evening 730 to 9 pm for hatha.

The weekend will consist of 4 workshops:

Saturday 2nd November 2019

10 am to 12.15 pm: Neck, Shoulders and Spine Connection Arm Balance Workshop

Learn how to unlock tension in your back and neck muscles which will give you much more freedom of movement in your spine allowing for an increase in core function. We will practice pelvis movements and abdominal connection. Key muscles such as Serrates Anterior, upper abs and lower abs will be fired up and with active hands your body will become light.

14.30 pm to 16.45 pm: Heal Your Heart Backbend Workshop

Come home, stop chasing and instead be with your breath and heart space to heal. Healing is not fixing, changing your body and mind. It is learning to be with your body and mind with a greater awareness so you move and make decisions that supports you in a healthy and loving way.
Experience Classic Forrest Yoga Healing Back bend sequences and feel spacious in your body and nourished in heart.

Sunday 3rd November 2019

10 am to 12.15 pm: Core Connection Inversion Workshop

We will explore Hips, Abdominals and Legs coordination’s to increase Core function.
There will be poses at different stages of building core functions for inversions.
We will give ourselves the opportunity to enjoy the part we can with practice vs. what must happen in our expectation. That is much more fun.

14.30 pm to 16.45 pm: Hip Hip Hooray Workshop

We will learn space between Hips, Abdominals and Legs in Pelvis.
Learn Forrest Yoga Leg Traction movement to create space in hips and legs. I will take you through demos of how pelvis functions in relation to spine and legs can maximize traction and allow for balanced hips.
