Yoga at CrossFit Thames

We believe in a well-rounded approach to fitness, and as such we offer a weekly
yoga class specifically designed to complement your training at the gym.

To get the most out of your workouts and maximise those gains, adequate recovery provisions are essential – our qualified yoga instructor takes you through a one hour practice that will leave you feeling more supple, as well as deeply relaxed.

A yoga class is more than just a mobility session – the practice of yoga asana (the postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) aims to gently bring you into a parasympathetic state, thus promoting recovery.

– Need more reasons as to why you should make a regular yoga practice part of your
training regime?
– Improve proprioception (i.e. joint position and motion in space) and body
awareness
– Develop an awareness of what it means to move well and within a healthy
range of motion for your body, and how to work with restrictions and compensatory patterns
– Prevent injury
– Learn to breathe mindfully and practice different techniques, including abdominal breathing, which you can then apply in your workouts, for example during lifting sessions

This class is suitable for everybody including complete beginners – no previous experience necessary, and no, you do not need to be able to touch your toes!

Please check our schedule for class times. For further information about yoga and your teacher Christine, please visit www.yogishapes.com
