I went to a great class with Jessica Horn at the Special Yoga centre in Kensal Rise on Sunday evening. We worked on shoulders, loosening off any tension and did a bit of gently neck stretching. There were four of us in the class so it was friendly and peaceful.
- We worked on rolling our shoulders back behind our heads using a belt
- Rolling shoulders up as rising up into a cobra pose
- Twisting upper back in a pigeon pose so that your left shoulder is on the floor when your left leg is bent and arms locked together
- Arms in eagle pose whilst holding horse pose
Jess is not intimidating as a yoga teacher and can tailor the class to beginners and offer more advanced students ways to take poses further. She is not too nice to put you through a bit of pain with some long hard horse poses but gives you enough time to recover.
A really lovely class for a Sunday evening! Much recommended.
