Flowing into Spaciousness Yoga with Rebecca Ellis
Mar 8 @ 6:15 pm – May 3 @ 8:45 pm

Flow Yoga with Rebecca

BexterMy teaching combines yoga styles: synchronizing breath and movement in the dynamic style of Vinyasa Flow, working closely with static posture alignment in Hatha and melting into the meditative, less dynamic postures of Yin. This is about more than working your body – everything we practice physically in yoga is intimately informed  by an ancient, rich and fascinating  philosophy going back thousands of years  and yet more relevant today than ever. I weave aspects of this philosophy into the teaching of breathing techniques, physical postures, relaxation and meditation. Through my classes, my aim is for you to feel wonderfully stretched, spacious and strengthened, your breathing smooth and regular and with a deep sense of calm and alignment with what matters in life.

All my classes are for mixed ability and I teach 3 different types of classes – Flow/Hatha, Yin/Restorative and Gentle Yoga. Please get in touch if you’d like to chat about which class you think may be the best for you.

I first encountered yoga when I was a stressed 15 year old and my grandmother showed me a sequence of asanas (physical postures) to help focus and calm my mind. I continued to practise on an off, and in the last 10 years began to take it more seriously, establishing a regular practice. In 2014 I took this further by completing a British Wheel Foundation Course in preparation for teacher training on the British Wheel Teaching Diploma. I am now qualified as a Yoga Teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga (accounting for 500 hours of training). Teaching students of all ages and levels of experience has transformed my own relationship to yoga and confirmed this is what I most love doing!

Moments of Stillness: Yin/Restorative Yoga with Rebecca Ellis @ The River Room
Mar 8 @ 8:00 pm – May 3 @ 10:30 pm

Yin/Restorative Yoga with Rebecca

BexterIn this Yin/Restorative Yoga class, we practice a very soft, slow nurturing form of yoga. Yin yoga works on the connective tissues and joints and involves no muscular effort. We hold poses for 3-5 minutes so to work really deep into the tissues – like a slow and deep massage. Restorative yoga is a bit like yin but uses lots of props – cushions, blankets, bolsters (sometimes even hot water bottles) to full support the body in simple poses. The effect is a deep relaxation and release of stress and emotion.

Gentle Yoga with Rebecca

BexterIn this Gentle Yoga class we work to carefully stretch, strengthen and relax the body with simple and beautiful asana (physical posture) sequences. We also work with the breath to calm the body and mind and always end with a long and delicious relaxation. These classes are for complete beginners or if you’re feeling a bit creaky and rusty and want a soothing practice.
