Don't fret if you can't touch your toes, that's what the instructors are there for; yes, some may be balancing on their head, or seem sweat-free as your moist upper lip begins to drip but sweating as you get into more challenging positions is part of the experience – or at least that's what I tell myself as my body gets used to the poses: this is Barefoot Yoga.
Barefoot yoga in Harborne, welcome all abilities, they have a wide variety of yoga, and types they recommend for you. For example Pregnancy and Birth Relaxation, which they recommend for pregnant women as both a mild exercise routine and relaxing practice.
The earliest it starts is 9am and the latest is 9.15pm. A handful of classes begin and end fifteen minutes past the hour because you must get there fifteen minutes before class begins to sign in, get changed, and ensure a prompt start. Check the Your timetable here for a time to suit you.
It's not as serious as you might think, so while you're concentrating on your breathing and getting your posture right remember you're burning calories.
Yoga may seem daunting if you're somewhat of an exercise-phobe, but you'll be welcomed for turning up and showing you're willing to try something new. Eventually you'll become an expert at leaning into that stretch that you struggled with initially; you're now comfortable with it, and you might even find yourself mimicking the instructor in your head and whispering 'downward facing dog'...
If you prefer a different type of exercise regime, but know someone who loves yoga, at Barefoot Yoga you can buy gift cards. So when you're struggling to think of a good present for that friend/sister/husband/wife, they'll be grateful for a free session of what they love: yoga.
