BraveBodies yoga class in Bursledon, Southampton,Tuesdays 8pm, Barbara Helis-Bailey, warrior 3Our intermediate vinyasa flow yoga class is a lovely, friendly group that has been around since 2008; however, new people are always welcome! We meet downstairs in the spacious Cedar Room. The majority of the group are usually men, so gentlemen, if you have any hesitations about being on your own in a room full of rubbery women in lycra, here you have nothing to fear! We work quite hard in this class but of course you can opt out of anything if you need to. Our yoga classes are core-based, with great emphasis on building strength alonside flexibility. It is helpful to have had previous experience with yoga or Pilates. We try out some challenging poses, but you will do fine as an intermediate practitioner, or even a fit beginner.

If this is your first time, please come a bit early to fill out a short form. Please bring your own mat and block if you have them…. if not, there are usually some spare ones to borrow, or you can also buy one at the venue. Many people choose to come to the 6:40pm Pilates class and stay for yoga, and take advantage of the discount offered for taking both – only £10.

Some words from the classmates:

“I have been doing yoga for a quite a few years, but have never been to a class that is as enjoyable as Barbara’s. Her knowledge of the body is impressive and I like the fact that she comes around the group to check and adjust our positions, so that I learn to feel when my body is doing it right. As someone who sits in front of a pc for most of the working week, I have really benefited from the way Barbara has pushed me to stretch out my body properly. An intense and professional class.” Siobhan Balfour

“I have attended these yoga and pilates classes over some years now and find them extremely helpful, fun, supportive and friendly. I feel I have benefitted physically and emotionally from the exercise I get and greatly value the teaching and exercise opportunity.” Marilyn Frost, university lecturer
