Basics Yoga is perfect for anyone new to yoga, or wanting a refresher in the basics. You will be guided through the fundamental postures, sun salutation sequences, pranayama (yogic breathing techniques) and meditation.
A beautiful relaxing and refreshing class for all levels.
Hatha Yoga is a more gentle style and focuses more on strength and flexibility. You are holding each pose a little longer than Vinyasa and have more opportunity to work on the structure of each pose, as well as your meditation practice throughout the class.
Vinyasa Yoga is our fastest style and focuses more on flowing between postures. This is an excellent way to increase the heart rate and receive a nurturing cardio-vascular and muscular workout. However we incorporate slower postures to encourage flexibility as well as deeper meditation into each session so the intensity is beautifully balanced. It is suitable to all levels, however a little more vigorous than the other styles.
Yin Yoga is our slowest physical style and much more meditative. You are holding poses for 2-5 minutes and working deeply on the flexibility of both muscles and muscle attachments. We often use props, such as bolsters, pillows and blankets to support our body to move deeper into the postures.
This is a beautiful opportunity to slow right down and breathe deeply, particularly if you lead a busy and fast paced life. Balancing out our Yin and Yang elements are very important for leading a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
Meditation is a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent. In these classes you will learn various techniques to develop concentration, calmness, and emotional wellbeing.
Meditation techniques may include pranayama (yogic breathing), mirror meditation, shadow meditation and walking meditation. The outcome of these beautifully relaxing classes are a profoundly peaceful and energised state of mind.
Yoga Nidra is a meditation technique designed to assist with stress relief, anxiety and depression management and sleep quality.
Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required.
