Intro to Yoga
Unplug from the devices and plug back into YOU. If you are a beginner, this is the class to get started with. If you are an experienced yogi, this is your “back to basic” class. In this class we’ll explore the basic postures, work on pranayama (breath work) techniques and some meditation. This is a perfect class to get acquainted with yoga practice and to synch your body with your breath, which is the foundation of Vinyasa practice. If you have any questions during the class, you’re welcome to yell out, as other students maybe wanting to ask the same question too! This class is ongoing and can be joined at any time.
Hatha Yoga is a broad umbrella term that encompasses any of the physical practices of yoga – or an asana practice.
A literal translation of the work Hatha is “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), which is said to refer to the balance between the masculine aspects and feminine aspects within all of us.
These days, however, the term Hatha Yoga is commonly used to describe a gentle, basic class with less flow between poses. A hatha class will typically be slower paced and involve lots of stretching, breathing exercises and meditation.
This class is suitable for most bodies types, ages and levels of mobility. The focus is on soothing and nourishing the body and mind. You will leave the class feeling you have had a good stretch, while strength, flexibility and balance begin to improve. The class includes breathing practice, gentle postures, longer time for relaxation and/or meditation.
A wonderful opportunity to slow down the fast pace of inner city life, these classes are a blend traditional Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga. Translation: flowing sequences with opportunity to hold poses for a little longer, take some deeper breaths and explore key alignment in poses.
Incorporating meditation, pranayama, yogic philosophy and asana - a complete yoga class.
These classes are highly recommended for beginners, and more experienced yogis, looking for a more relaxed pace.
These classes flow at a more dynamic pace, (get ready to sweat!), synchronising breath to movement in a continuous flow of poses.
We experiment with pranayama techniques, meditation, and yogic philosophy whilst enjoying creative sequences and transitions. These classes offer opportunities for more advanced students to extend themselves and try something different. Modifications for beginners are also offered so that you can practice at your own pace.
In Yin, passive postures are held in a longer period of time (3-5 min), to slowly release a connective tissue, fascia, all around your body. Yin is a perfect way to invite flexibility into our body and to release the tension that is hard to shake off. People often find it is meditative to sit in a Yin pose in silence. Suitable for all levels.
A wonderful opportunity to play with duality and send you floating into your day or night. The class mixes a calming sequence of yin based asanas as well well as some dynamic vinyasa sequences. Perfect opportunity to balance building heat and also stretching deeply, we allow ourselves to access increased flexibility and range of motion.
