Classes are creative so something new is taught each time to shift the focus on different parts of your body.
If you listen to your body and work to your limitations, then you can attend any of the classes. Although if you have never done yoga then it is recommended to start of with the gentle/beginner classes first.
Gentle/Beginner: 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, giving you more space to breath and dive deeper into the stretch. Even the most experienced yogi will benefit from savoring the effects of each yoga posture (asana).
Essence of Yoga: New to yoga, mature aged, or after a meditative experience. Class starts with a long period of stillness to awaken and renew connections to the energy alive in your body. This stillness is essential to harness healing energy for self rejuvenation. Then a gentle yoga sequence that will enable you to integrate this healing energy into your physical body. Classes finish with James’ acoustic guitar to melt any last remaining tension.
General: Some yoga experience or regularly partake in other physical activities. A flowing class where movement is linked mindfully with breath. Variations of yoga postures offered in an intelligent sequence to generate warmth in your body. Great for building strength and flexibility and concentration of mind.
General / Beginner: A mixed level class. Variations of poses offered so both new and experienced students can practice together. Students encouraged to work to their level, rest as required.
General/ Intermediate: Been practicing yoga or regularly partake in other physical activities. More advanced postures offered. A flowing class focusing on breath linked with movement with a strong focus on alignment to create a safe class that is strengthening and energising.
Yin Yoga: class begins with a gentle mindful yoga sequence and then transitions into nourishing yin yoga poses, where the focus will shift to stimulating the flow of healing energy within. Develop deeper awareness of your body, mind and breath as we nourish and restore within. As the poses are held for longer then a regular yoga practice, the focus shifts more into opening the connective tissues rather then just the muscles. More about Yin Yoga
