Class Descriptions

Vinyasa Flow 

Vinyasa (or Vinyasa Flow) keeps you moving from asana to asana, linking each pose to an inhale and an exhale. We link movement and breath to help attain balance in the mind and body. In a Vinyasa class, expect instructors to keep the flow of movements smooth and continuous, which is great for helping you stay present. Slow Down, Monkey Mind!  

 

A Vinyasa class combines the deep tradition of asana practices with fresh and fun, modern perspectives on body mechanics leaving you feeling stronger, more expansive, and centred after each class. Intensity levels & personal style varies. Modifications and variations of poses are offered. Please check the different levels offered on our timetable.

Yin Yoga

Practice yin is to relinquish control— Yin is an introspective practice that offers a chance to turn inward and nurture the calm, quiet centre that is innate in all of us. It is a practice in stillness, patience, and non-reactivity. Yin teaches mindfulness, and poses are meant to be performed with little muscular effort. The Yin practice embraces both Eastern and Western concepts: from an Eastern perspective, Yin poses stimulate the meridian lines and open energetic channels within the body; from a Western perspective, when a posture is held for the time we apply moderate stress to the connective tissues (tendons, fascia, and ligaments). A healthy amount of stress hydrates and repairs the tissues and can ultimately restore range of motion. Dress comfortably and prepare to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Ashtanga

Ashtanga is a very dynamic and athletic form of hatha yoga, made up of six series of levels, with a fixed order of postures. It is rooted in vinyasa, the flowing movements between postures, with a focus on energy and breath. While it is a very physical practice, it also promotes mental clarity and inner peace.

 

Usually, students begin an Ashtanga practice with five repetitions of Sun Salutation A and Sun Salutation B.

This is followed by a set of standing poses, in 5 repetitions, then a set of seated poses. After you have mastered these three pose sequences, your instructor will guide you through the advanced series, Advanced A, and Advanced B, Advanced C, and D. Each led session is taught in a manner that each pose is broken down to slowly build towards the full pose.

Beginners Yoga

Beginners Yoga, postures are practised to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals, as we make a full circuit of the body’s range of motion with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers. Also a deep relaxation at the end of class. IDEAL FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS

Pregnancy Yoga

Much like other types of birth-preparation classes, pregnancy yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centring and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is all about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching, with just a few postures in each session, less movement more connection. This class is great at the end of a long day or those moments in life you need that bit of ease. Restorative incorporates lots of props and long holds in postures to initiate deep relaxation.

Wear your comfiest clothes and softest socks because Restorative is super dreamy and so so nurturing. 

Align & Flow

Align & Flow is open to students of all levels and offers accessible alignment principles and biomechanics from which students can be playful, explore their creative potential, heal and transform. These classes are taught with music. With a focus on breath and feeling, this class offers alignment cues to engage any yogi. In addition to asana, classes include opportunities for pranayama and meditation.
