Hatha Yoga Asana

hatha yoga asana

A breath-based yoga class for the LGBTQI+ community and allies.

Every Sunday

This is a breath-based yoga class for the LGBTQI+ community and allies to come together to practice one of the elements or limbs of yoga – asana (the movement bit). The class is focused on beginners and those who want to re root to their foundational practice.

There is no need to wear special yoga clothing (unless you want to) and this class is not about the Instagramable look in many crazy positions – nor do you need to be flexible or fit already. Come as you are and work with your body and go from there.

Before you attend:

We ask all participants to kindly complete this form before attending your first class to ensure everyone is safe and there is a clear agreement about working together. Click Here

What to expect:

The class begins with a few minutes to welcome and we get into breath practice. We start to bring in movement before practising together a flow that warms up the body. We will then practice a number of asanas – postures with both movement and some holding. We finish class with a deep rest, guided relaxation and some silent sitting.

After the class:

Ed shares a recorded practice of the sequence we do in class so that you can practice at home between classes if you wish. This means that you can develop and access the benefits outside of class. Ed is also available to answer questions via WhatsApp in the week. This isn’t required but is highly recommended. Regular practice is very powerful.

You are also invited to stay around in the wonderful Social Refuge and Queer Lit bookshop for some community and meet others who are curious or living the benefits of yoga, have a tea and connect if you like.

What to bring:

  • something comfy to wear.
  • This isn’t a workout but you may want to bring a spare t shirt.
  • There are toilets to change in.
  • yoga mat or you can buy one from Ed in advance if you don’t have one.
  • a blanket or a large scarf to cover yourself if you like during the rest stage
