This class are sequences of postures, with elements fused and integrated from various traditions in Yoga including Iyengar and Ashtanga.
The class is fun, experimental and playful and gives students the opportunity to try out new postures. Different series of postures will be practised in different classes and may focus on areas such as standing postures, backbends, arm balances, forward bends or inversions.
Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic, physically demanding, flowing practice. Students are led through some or all of a set series of postures, practised in a particular order, known as the Primary series.
This practice aims to build heat in the body to help it to open, become more flexible and to release toxins. Through repeated practice students become familiar with the series of postures and eventually the focus moves away from the postures to following the breath and the gaze points for each posture, allowing the whole practice to be become more like a moving meditation.

This softer Hatha Flow and Restore practice will cultivate strength, flexibility and relaxation, which can be equally therapeutic to the physical body and nervous system.
The sequence will be based on traditional hatha postures and will work out any niggles in the back, stretch hamstrings and create space in the chest and the hips so the life force can move freely. This more dynamic part of the class will help pull the mind away from workday concerns. By clearing out the old energy through flowing movements and familiar traditional asanas we will be able to ease into a restorative sequence without restless mind in order to give our nervous system complete reset.
Restorative part of the class will consist of up to 5 postures supported by props that allow you to completely relax. These poses will be held for 5-10 minutes and may include gentle twists, backbends, seated forward bends and hip openers.
This class is a combination of dynamic flowing asanas coupled with nourishing restorative postures.
First hour of the class will focus on building heat through series of sun salutations and standing poses.We will gradually move down towards the floor to explore a few cooling seated postures.Last half hour of the session will allow the body to let go and surrender to the props where each pose will be held for longer. In this restorative part of the practice, which is designed to soothe the nervous system and nourish us in a gentle way, we will bring deeper awareness to the importance of being able to relax.
This balanced session will keep you active on your mat but equally open to the ability to relax and let go when needed.
Through graceful and balanced transitions, each individual is encouraged to work within their own ability and to explore their body’s full range of motion, in order to cultivate greater self-awareness of both, body and mind.
Beginning with a focus on breath and gentle warm ups, creative flow of sun salutations and standing poses, along with a fair amount of chest openers to combat the negative aspects of working behind the desk.
The second slower paced part of the practice is devoted to floor based postures in order to bring inner clarity, enhanced flexibility and muscle tone.
The class finishes with relaxation techniques and shavasana.
This gentle class focuses on breath and encourage you to linger in poses for longer in order to facilitate deep relaxation in a caring and supportive environment.
Restorative practice is designed to move the spine in all directions through the use of blankets, bolsters and straps. This will allow the body to 'actively' rest, thereby stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system bringing balance to your body and mind. Restorative yoga is suitable and encouraged for all levels of fitness and complements a more vigorous yoga practice so everyone can benefit from this nurturing environment.
Postnatal mothers, people with back injuries, arthritis or other chronic conditions are welcome. No prior yoga experience required.
Inspired by the ancient Chinese yoga tradition, Yin Yoga can be seen as a form of self-administered acupuncture.
Like acupuncture, it works by applying temporary pressure on the meridians (energy channels) in the body and helps to boost deficiencies in chi (vital energy) and augment the flow of it through the body. As a result it can help with physical, emotional and mental imbalances, and can be particularly helpful if you are suffering from fatigue and depleted mental and physical energy.
The yin yoga postures are also a time for quiet contemplation and are a great means for developing a greater sense of inner mental calm.
Yin yoga is also a very good complementary discipline to more dynamic practices such as Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga and can really help to open up and release particularly tight areas of the body including the back and hips, as well as aiding in keeping the joints in the body supple and healthy.
