This class is or anyone who is new to yoga or has any back issues which might keep them from a regular class. Focus will be on strengthening the muscles, holding the postures, improving balance and gentle extension postures. No inversions or arm balances.
This class covers the basics of yoga – how to breath, move with your breath and the classic postures. We keep it simple and focus on proper alignment. It’s great for beginners and those who want to focus on alignment. As we hold the poses longer, you will gain strength in your muscles especially your core and arms.
Hatha means ‘force’ and is the foundation of all yoga styles. It is using the body to help still the mind and keep us focussed in the now. We follow the traditional approach of pranayama, sun salutations and classic postures ending with savasana and more pranayama. Suitable for anyone.
Choreographed to some inspiring tunes, this class is for those who want to flow through one pose to the next working systematically through the entire body. We start with Tai chi to connect our connect our breath to our movements and then travel from standing and balance to seated poses ending with a lovely relaxation which includes eye pillows with lavender.
This class is perfect for anyone with tightness in the hips, back or shoulders. Poses are done on the floor and held for 3-4 minutes allowing the muscles to relax so the connective tissue or fascia can release creating more flexibility and mobility. Yin Yoga perfect for beginners and those who need to take a break from other forms of yang activities, allowing the body time relax while we quieten and focus the mind. We use lots of props to make sure you can truly let go.
