Yoga Basics

This class is designed as an introduction to the practice of Yoga. The practice is slower paced than an all-levels class and focuses on developing clear and safe alignment in the foundation poses. You will also learn the basic breathing techniques used in Yoga. Come to learn, play and maybe even break a sweat in a supportive environment. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes; you just have to be willing to try.

Level: All Levels - Beginners Welcome! Also suitable if you need a slower practice, returning to Yoga or are recovering from an injury.

 

Vinyasa

Vinyasa, translated to “Flowing with breath”, is a dynamic style of Hatha Yoga which, joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice. Our Flow classes are designed to cultivate heat within the body with creative sequences involving Sun Salutations, standing and seated postures, back bending, arm balancing and a strong focus upon the power of the breath awareness. Flow yoga classes tend to be more vigorous and aerobic, and classes can have a variety of music and themes. The sequence of postures change from class to class with each class working towards that peak pose and various themes.

Hatha & Yoga Flow

A slower paced but still challenging class focusing on moving from pose to pose and linking the movement with the breath. I will offer a variety of modifications to encourage participation of everyone. We practice sitting, standing and inverted postures and suggest challenging variations for more advanced students, yet it is fun and non-intimidating options for newer students.

Candlelight Yin

Enjoy the feelings of rejuvenation and steadiness that arise from a Yin Yoga practice as you slow down, move from noise to silence, from agitation to calm, from complexity to simplicity. This practice integrates the ancient Yoga teachings with Meridian Theory as taught in Chinese Medicine. Engage the body’s natural healing power as you actively nourish and harmonise the body’s vital life force or chi, as the whole body rests and opens with long held poses. Benefits include the release of muscular, emotional and mental tension.

Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga is a challenging variation of other types of traditional yoga practices and is performed in a heated room. The warmth helps to improve muscle and joint flexibility and allow you to gently stretch and strengthen your muscles to a greater extent than in regular yoga practices. The practice of Hot Yoga gives to you more of a cardio workout, encouraging weight loss and detoxification of the body. Hot Yoga classes will be performed within the heat where stated on the timetable.
