On Mondays and Tuesdays, Christine Leedy teaches in-person classes in Middelburg at ’t Pand. Various yoga, meditation, and spiritual courses take place in this peaceful location. Yoga mats, meditation pillows, and blankets are available.
A typical class begins with music and active movements to warm the muscles, increase your heart rate and get you out of your head and into your body. Next, we do various sequences from Dru Yoga, which combine traditional yoga postures like the tree with breath awareness, hand mudras, and positive affirmations. At the end of the class, you lie down for a guided relaxation, followed by a short meditation.
Everyone is welcome to participate from young to old. The trick is to work with, not against, your body. You will be encouraged to use props or adapt postures where necessary. A yoga class offers you the perfect opportunity to practice finding a balance between challenging yourself and staying within your capabilities.
The yoga classes in the mornings are at a gentler pace than the evening yoga classes. Because I am American-Dutch, my classes tend to have a mix of nationalities. For this reason, I offer the Monday evening yoga class in English, as well as my online class on Thursday.
During the ongoing pandemic, I want people to feel comfortable in the in-person classes. Therefore, I am keeping the groups small (6 to max. 8 people). The room is cleaned and ventilated after every class. If we all follow the Corona protocol, we can help prevent infections.
