CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


VINYASA YOGA FLOW

Vinyasa (translates to “flowing with breath”) is a dynamic style of Hatha yoga which joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice. Classes are often themed around anatomy, the natural world or spiritual intentions, allowing for the practice to not only be a physical practice but also bring a sense of connection with ourselves and the environment around us.

HATHA YOGA FLOW

Hatha Yoga is the oldest form of Yoga, it is the root of every other styles of Yoga that exist today. It is generally sequenced and practiced in a very specific way and integrated all aspects of Yoga, such as meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and asana (postures). It is perfect for those who are seeking a practice that takes them back to the roots and the wisdom of this ancient practice. 

 SLOW & RESTORATIVE YOGA

The main focus of Restorative Yoga is that by relaxing in poses, with the aid of props, without strain or pain, we can achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Restorative yoga classes are very relaxing and slow paced.

Our parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated when we relax into poses, which promotes a relaxation response and reduces stress in our bodies. 

YOGA & MINDFULNESS

In this class you will learn to find the resources within yourself to channel your mind, recenter & recharge with the tools of Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation. We will start with a gentle yoga practice to prepare the body for sitting followed by a meditation practice using different tools such as mantras, visualisation, intentions, etc.

 

 

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga is a slow pace style of Yoga. It is based on the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang – Yin can be described as stable, passive and downward moving. Postures are held for longer period of time on the floor, allowing the space to discover and connect with different layers of your body and mind.

On a physical levels, we work the tendons,  ligaments and fascia tissues often supported by bolster, blankets and all sorts of props.
