WHAT IS YOGA?
Want to give it a go?
“My name is Derynthia Boyd, and I have been practising yoga for over 40 years and teaching for the last 15. Initially, on the advice of a physiotherapist, I began practising yoga because of constant back pain. Regular practice helped fix my back, but I was also surprised to find that the benefits extended beyond just the physical. Over the last 40 years, I have practiced yoga daily and studied continuously, gaining qualifications in Yoga Teaching and Anatomy and Physiology. However, I am indebted to my students for teaching me the most about the practice of yoga and its benefits.
Yoga is an integral part of my daily life, and it is central to my physical, mental, and emotional well-being, particularly as I age. It is my passion in life and my aim is to share yoga and its many benefits to as many people as possible. Yoga is for everybody – it is a practice that “meets you where you are now on your mat” – everyone progresses at their own pace. From the simplest of stretches to more advanced asana, with careful teaching and consistent practice, everyone can enjoy yoga at their own pace, allowing their body to progress naturally to increased strength and flexibility, without injury or pain.”

TERMS & CONDITIONS
|Slow flow yoga||Slow Flow Yoga is a Hatha Yoga practice that combines regulated breath control and asana. Practising yoga in this way helps reduce anxiety and stress while helping the body to move into ‘flow’ patterns. Combined with static yoga asana, the focus on integrating conscious breath patterns is a way to maximise both physical and mental health. A regular practice of Slow Flow Yoga will increase strength, flexibility, and balance, while minimising over stretching or injury.|
