HATHA YOGA WITH THIS LITTLE YOGINI #REVIEW…
Posted by Kat Heath on 14 Dec 2022
I recently had the pleasure of participating in a gorgeous and relaxing yoga class taught by Kalli Pasqualucci Aka This Little Yogini at The pavilion in Gibraltar Recreation Ground, in Ewell.
Kalli who is a fully insured yoga instructor specialises in teaching Hatha yoga practice. Her classes are suitable for beginners to those that are more experienced.
Hatha yoga is a collective term of yoga practice which is often slower than other forms of yoga. However despite it being slower than other forms of yoga practice the poses within Hatha often challenge your strength and flexibility whilst at the same time focusing predominantly on relaxation and mindfulness.
Kalli warmly welcomed the participants of the class and checked for any ailments aside from what is on your personal health check form which you fill in before your class. Kalli went through what the class would involve and checked whether we were warm enough and if we needed yoga blocks etc before practice began.
We started with deep breathing and mindfulness which prepared us for the yoga practice, Kalli encouraged us to be mindful of any aches, pains or areas of tension in our bodies whilst practicing breathing and mindfulness.
Throughout the rest of the class we participated in various poses to help strengthen our bodies creating balance with sun salutations and working on the core which helped myself in particular as I often forget to stretch after exercise and found this particularly beneficial.
We completed the class with relaxation with savassna which helps you unwind and relax your body and mind after the class.
This was personally my favourite part of the class as the lights are turned off, you lie on your mat and snuggle under your blanket and float away after working and stretching your muscles throughout the class.
I was well and truly ready for bed so much so I fell asleep on the sofa and slept really well once I peeled myself off the sofa and went to bed!
I would definitely recommend!
