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.

Hatha Yoga

In our Hatha classes, postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated.

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.
