Yoga is an ancient tradition that is far more than an exercise system. It involves not only movement, but also Breathing Techniques, Meditation and Philosophy. It touches you at every level, physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga will help you to manage your life with a little more calmness, composure and Equanimity. A regular Yoga practice will help to build strength and flexibility within the body and provide a sense of stillness within the mind.
We work with the classic Yoga postures (Asana) and sequences in a mindful, breath-led practice (Pranayama).
Classes will start with a connection of mind, body and breath.
We then practice a movement sequence using a variety of Yoga postures to improve stregth, mobility and flexibility in the whole body. Each class will work on a particular theme.
The class will end with a guided relaxation, to calm the body and release the mind.
In these classes we take a functional approach to our Yoga.
We work through postures and movement sequences that will help us release tension in the body, mobilising and releasing joints, in a mindful and functional way that will help us in everyday living.
We focus on common, modern day restrictions in our bodies, working with alignment and activation of the muscular-skeletal system, and the fascia tissue in the body.
A modern approach to movement with all the benefits that Yoga has to offer.
Vinyasa simply means to link together. In this class we dance through different Yoga postures linking them with breath to create a flowing sequence. The style is more dynamic with constant movement, finding occasional stillness in the flow to ground the body and mind. This style of Yoga is particularly good for people who experience stiffness in their bodies from sedentary jobs, as it helps to release the Fascia tissue more than static Yoga postures.
Level 2 – A slightly more challenging class moving at a faster pace, with some experience of basic yoga postures and reasonable fitness.
