“Yoga is one of the oldest systems of personal development in the world. This system of balancing the body, mind and spirit was formulated by ancient yogis, who understood man’s essential nature and realised a way to utilise all of man’s inner resources to live in harmony with himself and the environment.” (Iyengar Yoga Association)
Iyengar yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga. Practicing Yoga helps you overcome and prevent many stresses, strains, aches and pains. It promotes a firm foundation for health and well-being. It can help our children improve muscle tone, balance and flexibility. It is also masses of fun with our little ones!!
HDSSG have been working with Huddersfield based Iyengar Instructor Jayny Stock for over 12 months now at our venue, The Watershed, Slaithwaite. We try to have at least one session available to our families every month and we have had a fantastic response to the sessions. Jayny is patient, unflappable (it’s a real talent to remain unfazed when mid pose to have a 6 year old jump on you!) and brilliant at pitching the sessions at just the right level to engage our group and keep it fun!
All ages and abilities have accessed our yoga sessions from the bendiest of babies, tensile teens and supple seniors! It’s open to all of our members and their families. So if you haven’t tried it yet please come along! Dates of our upcoming sessions can be found in the members section of this website.
