About the classes
We deliver a range of classes to suit all levels. For the newbie, we recommend a beginner’s hatha yoga session where you will be taken safely through classic sequences, moving with the breath and always closing with relaxation. This class is for everyone.
If you have already done some yoga, come along to the vinyasa session and we’ll work with some classic poses, this time with some flow to build some fire, we’ll also safely encourage you to take on more challenging peak poses.
Yin is the meditative, nourishing yoga practice, also called taoist yoga. Yin focuses on lengthening connective tissues and is meant to complement yang activity — be it running, Ashtanga or indeed any aerobic, stress-inducing activity. Yin poses are passive, meaning you relax the muscles and let gravity do the work. If you find you’re always on the move, the best way to bring your body and mind back into balance is with some Yin.
With every session you can expect to find meditation, even if for just a couple of minutes. Meditation, the stilling of the oscillations of the mind (chitta vritti nirodha is Patanjali’s definition of yoga) is a vital remedy to the stresses of daily life.
Our classic hatha training means that we integrate pranayama or breath control into every practice, moving with the breath enables you to connect with your true self and direct vital energy (prana) to your every move. Moving with the breath means moving with ease.
“What we call ‘I’ is just a swinging door which moves when we inhale and when we exhale.”
Shunryu Suzuki (1905-1971) from Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind
