In this four week rolling series, which you can join at any stage where we look at the foundational aspects of vinyasa yoga.
The Foundations classes are designed for students who are new to yoga. Each class will be well balanced, strengthening and relaxing and will provide a glimpse into the deeper transformational aspects of yoga.
Classes will be taught at a pace that is accessible and steady – appropriate for complete beginners, while also being challenging for seasoned practitioners who like to move a slower pace.
Open classes are just that – open to everyone, from beginner to intermediate. An Open class will use the Sun Salutations as its backbone, and incorporate a selection of standing poses, balancing poses, forward bends, backward bends, twists, arm balances, hip openers, and inversions, finishing with deep relaxation. You’ll flow smoothly from one pose to the next, with postures and breath linked to invite a meditative aspect to your practice. Each class will vary slightly depending on the teacher, but all classes will provide insight and the experience of Vinyasa Flow yoga.
If you’re brand new to Vinyasa Flow, we suggest taking some Foundations classes first to learn valuable techniques that will allow you to relax into the flow of an open class with more confidence.
A meditation practice is something that can elude many of us for years. But try it after a physical yoga class and settling the mind becomes far easier! In this class all the elements of a well-balanced vinyasa flow class will create the foundations for a short guided meditation to complete the balance of body, heart and mind.
Yin Yoga is the polar opposite to our dynamic flowing classes and a superb complement to the more “yang” style of Vinyasa Flow yoga.
Yin classes involve long, luxurious holds in restorative forward bends and hip openers. Quieting the mind, focusing on the breath and reducing tension is the supreme focus of these classes as you work toward deep relaxation. A must for all yogis, beginner to advanced!
Similar to Yin, Stretch is a floor based class with all the usual yin props but with a more active approach to stretching your body.
A great stepping stone between Vinyasa class and Yin or simply for this who enjoy more active stretching.
All experience levels welcome.
