A build up to the full Ashtanga primary sequence, this is a physical and dynamic practice that will build strength, stamina, and flexibility. We will focus on the breath and alignment in order to create a strong, grounding foundation which will allow for you to flourish and grow in your practice. The Ashtanga series is well structured with opening Surya Namaskars (sun salutations), standing asanas, seated asanas and closing sequence. We will begin with a short warm up, opening Savasana (relaxation) and Pranayama (breathing) techniques to allow you to bring the mind into the body and prepare you for a focused class, and ending with a well deserved Savasana to allow for your body and mind to soak up the therapeutic benefits of the practice. All levels welcome.
For those who are new to yoga and would like to be in a class of practitioners of a similar level. You will learn the basic postures and focus on correct alignment. All asanas (postures) will be offered with modifications, using props and allowing for more time to discover exactly where you are at, without the pressure of a fast moving class but still allowing for a dynamic and flowing practice.
A fast paced, dynamic Ashtanga based class designed to get the Prana (life force – energy) moving through the body, energising and revitalising you ready for your day ahead. The morning time is the perfect time to practice yoga, and the benefits are endless. Rising with and saluting the sun and awakening the body and mind in a conscious way allows for you to listen to your body with a mind that hasn’t had the distractions of the day, and gives you space to prepare for the day ahead. Creating a clear and focused mental state and energising the body early on sets the intention for the rest of the day - with the mindbody working as one!
A dynamic vinyasa flow set to music, with focus on the Chakras which are energy centres around the body. We will be exploring how to balance each one of the main seven through our yoga practice. The ups and downs of life's many experiences often leave our Chakra’s with blockages, which means our energy being trapped and unable to flow freely in the body – this effects our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being and can even cause illness. In order to achieve good overall health, our Chakras need to be balanced. Luckily for us, this is yet another avenue which we can explore to ensure we develop our awareness which will help us open our Chakras and keep Prana (life force) flowing - the lessons of which we can take off the mat and into our daily lives.
Tibetan yoga (Kum Nye) was founded by Tibetan Lama Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. This is very slow paced, perfect for preparing the body and mind for meditation. After performing the postures we will endwith a short meditation to bring awareness to the changes and effects in the mind and body. This is very gentle and is ideal for the older practitioner – postures can be performed sitting on a chair and only mild, slow movements are made. Available on a one to one basis.
HA meaning “sun” and THA “moon” Hatha Yoga brings balance to the body and mind. You will experience a gentle, restorative flow designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit. We will spend more time in the postures, allowing you to connect to your true self and ground from within. A truly nourishing class to de-stress, help manage anxiety, re-rejuvenate the muscles, and detoxify the body.
Seasonal Yoga is founded on the knowledge that we are a part of nature and therefore part of its changes which allows us to adapt our yoga practice to promote health on every level. Each Seasonal Vinyasa class incorporates a flowing style of yoga, harmonising breath & movement to give strength, grace & freedom. The class integrates the physical, psychological & spiritual aspects of yoga and includes hands-on adjustments, breath awareness, meditation and deep relaxation. The theme of each class is supported by the current season, eclectic music, readings and references to yoga philosophy texts.
Just as the Earth easily flows through the seasons, it should be only natural that our bodies wish to do the same
