Your Yoga practice starts with listening to your body (your internal teacher) and working to whatever limitations are presenting themselves each time you practice. We offer a variety of classes to give you a choice of either a flowing stronger class or something slower that gives more time for a deeper stretch. Having a combination of the two during the week will help to bring you back to balance. If you have never done yoga before then it is recommended to start with any of the Slow Deep Stretch, Yin Yoga, Hatha Yoga or Moving Meditation classes.

SLOW DEEP STRETCH

Slow Deep Stretch is ideal if you are new to yoga, mature aged, or wanting a slower paced class. You don’t have to be a beginner to benefit from the slower gentle movements, giving you more space to breath and dive deeper into the stretch. Even the most experienced yogi will benefit from savouring the effects of each yoga posture (asana).

Suitable for students New to Yoga, mature aged, or after a slower paced class. You don’t have to be a beginner to benefit from the slower gentle movements. These classes give you more time to focus on your breath and time to dive deeper into the stretch. Even the most experienced yogi will benefit from savouring the effects of each yoga posture (asana).

 

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga where poses, or asanas, are held for slightly longer periods then the other classes. This way Yin yoga can effectively focus more on the connective tissues surrounding the muscles and joints for a greater increase of blood flow to nourish and rejuvenate the ‘targeted areas’. When your body stops moving the muscles, even the mind, can relax. A perfect balance to the stronger (yang) practices or fast paced lifestyles. Slowing down we pay more attention preventing physical and mental exhaustion. A complimentary class for all athletes or anyone with tight sore bodies.

Some pranayama (breath work), meditation and Bandhas (locks) may be included. This class is conditioning and strengthening whilst creative and playful, aiming to bring balance to mind, body and soul.

Suitable for Students new to yoga, mature aged, or after a slower paced but strength building class. 

 

MOVING MEDITATION

From movement to stillness; this yoga class is a slow moving yoga flow with an emphasis on bringing mindfulness and self awareness deeper into your physical practice. Meditation does not try to stop your thoughts, but rather, brings ease to your nervous system.
