YOGA


There’s a whole lot of yoga class types, people! There are similarities in the shapes the body makes to form the asanas (poses) but there are some key and quite significant differences in how they are taught. Some are quite faced paced, some are super slow. Some are taught to encourage spiritual exploration and a better connection to the self, some are taught more for fitness.

Don’t get too bogged down, ask us if you are not sure what you would like. Our yoga practice will depend on our mood, our body and what we need. It is not a one size fits all deal. So a little guide of what we offer:

Total Beginners

The principles of Hatha yoga explored week by week in a complete course from the breath to learning some asanas (poses) and basic meditation techniques to set you up to explore the practice more deeply. You don’t have to be flexible. You don’t have to be super fit. You just have to be willing.

Perfect for: total beginners, those who’ve done a class here and there or technique freaks who have done yoga but want to break it down.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle yoga is a catch all phrase to basically say we are going to really reward and honour our body. This is a slower paced class that aims to get the body moving improve posture and balance, boost energy, soothe the nervous system and help us connect to ourselves. More experienced yogi and yoginis may prefer this too for a gentler class, when the body is feeling in need of a bit of nurturing.

Perfect for: all ages, those who are working on their fitness, those coming back from injury, maybe after a pregnancy, more experienced people who may want to slow down for a bit (note not yin, not that deep tissue stuff, this is proper gentle!)

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga became the system of choice back in the day and forms the basis of modern yoga practice. It’s a general term for a traditional yoga class to strengthen and lengthen muscles and oil the joints. You tend to do a pose on one side, then the other rather than flow movement to movement. This creates a beautiful feeling of balance in the body.

Perfect for: those starting on their yoga journey and more experienced practioners looking to explore the breath and body at a slightly slower pace with a few challenges added in.

Hatha Flow

See above, but this time a series of poses are linked together in a coherent sequence, and you are given time to hold and explore the asanas (poses) for a positive impact on your mental, emotional & physical wellbeing. Strong emphasis is placed on breath awareness in synchronisation to movement, as you mindfully flow from one pose to the next. These classes will help improve strength, flexibility, coordination and balance as well as encouraging the mind to settle. Always aiming to find the balance between ease & effort, you will walk away not only feeling challenged, but also refreshed & relaxed!

Perfect for: if you have a bit if yoga experience, a reasonable fitness level, like flowy classes but want to hang around in a pose for a few breaths to connect all the internal and external pieces.

Vinyasa

Now we’re getting into a more modern style of the practice. Vinyasa is generally a faster paced class. Traditionally it is one breath one movement and puts a more creative spin on everything. These classes can be a physical as you want. Our classes can be adapted to advanced vinyasa fans to those starting out, as our resident vinyasa teacher is brilliant at catering for the needs of those in her class. In these classes, generally expect almost constant movement – with room for relaxation at the end.

Perfect for: those who like a fast paced, fiery class, those who love dance, those who want to get lost in the breath and movement.
