This class is for those with previous yoga experience and/or, a good level of fitness. The class will include intermediate and advanced movements, but always with modifications, and will be relatively energetic and dynamic. The class is ideal for people who do sports and are looking to add yoga to their training. Not ideal for pregnant women or for those with limited physical ability or serious health conditions – I am happy to direct you to more suitable yoga classes instead as there are plenty in Dumfries that would be more appropriate. Mats are provided or you can bring your own.
