Yoga, but not as you know it – a breath of fresh air as wellness goes wireless!

Grab your mat, escape the studio and get ready for your weekly yoga session to be brought into the 21st Century.  Covid-19 has led one yoga teacher to think “outside the studio” for new and innovative ways to deliver her yoga classes.  Using state-of-the-art wireless technology, Ria Humphreys, teacher and founder of Perfect Pose Yoga, is fusing the ancient Indian practice of yoga with modern day electronics to give in her newest class to give you a truly immersive yoga experience you won’t forget.

“The concept is simple but very effective” explains Ria, “you experience a wonderful outdoor Vinyasa Flow yoga class whilst wearing a wireless headset – clearly hearing my inspiring music soundtrack and voice simultaneously, so you never miss a beat – or a pose!  This is Covid-safe outdoor yoga with all the wonderful sights and sensations of being in nature, but with no unwanted distractions and no impact on the surroundings.”

Based in the idyllic village of Green Hammerton, nestled between Harrogate and York and easily accessed by the A59, this all-levels, friendly, adult yoga class offers a peaceful yet invigorating flow to get your body and breath moving.  Ria focusses on the basics of alignment while building strength, confidence and balance.  Expect a fun and light-hearted yoga sequence followed by relaxing restorative poses and a blissful Savasana.

“Cocooned in the high-tech headphones you are almost in a world of your own” adds Ria, “being able to disconnect from everyday distraction gives you a heightened focus – in your own Zen bubble!”  The benefits of yoga practice to boost your wellbeing and vitality is widely recognised and we all certainly need to nurture ourselves as we leave winter and lockdowns behind and look forward to summer.  “Our mental health is so important, now even more than ever.  I believe finding new ways to safely exercise is fundamental to our wellbeing” says Ria.  “Being outdoors gives my students a sense of escapism, whilst enabling them to have plenty of space to keep at a safe distance from each other… plus a constant supply of good ol’ fresh Yorkshire air!”

So if you’re fed up of staying indoors, give this a go – it’s hands down one of the most memorable yoga practices you’ll ever do!

Perfect Pose Yoga also offers non-headphone class options at Green Hammerton Village Hall (when restrictions allow) and live online classes too.  Ria has over 6 years of yoga experience and teaches students worldwide.  Check out www.perfectposeyoga.com for her full timetable of classes.

Date & Time:  Immersive outdoor yoga classes take place on Mondays @ 6.30pm & Tuesdays @ 9.30am (for approx.. 45mins).  Please arrive 5 minutes before class to check in and set up.

Location:  Grassed area on the corner of Harrogate Road & Paddock Way in Green Hammerton (YO26 8FB) – look out for the Perfect Pose Yoga flag and yogis wearing headphones!
