The yoga classes at Glasgow Clyde College will work every part of your body, stimulating your whole system from the inside to the out. Our course is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, and will allow for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as your body conditions and adapts to the exercises.
What will I learn?
Health Benefits of Yoga
Yoga is a range of physical, mental and spiritual practices which originated in ancient India with a view to attaining a state of permanent peace. The positive effects of Yoga have been recognised for thousands of years.
Various studies on the practice of yoga have shown that it’s a safe and highly effective way to improve various aspects of your health and wellbeing, including flexibility, strength and balance. There has been some evidence that regular practice of yoga can have a positive impact on heart disease and blood pressure, can help with aches and pains (including back pain) and may even help combat stress and depression.
What to Bring
We recommend that participants wear comfortable clothing to make it easier to perform some of the movements. We also recommend that you bring a yoga mat, as it can help with stability and can make floor work more comfortable.
