Vinyasa Flow will energise and challenge you using creative sequencing and a series of dynamic postures that will vary from teacher to teacher.

Variations and modifications are taught to individualise the practice for each student, making it ideal for many levels of practitioner.

    Some prior experience with vinyasa or yoga is recommended, ideally 3 - 4 Vinyasa Slow classes before moving on to a Vinyasa Flow class. 
     
    Room heated to a balmy 27 - 30 degrees. Bringing a towel and water is highly recommended. 
  • Yin

    Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles. In this practice, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deep connective tissue. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the naturally mobility of the joints and energetically it opens the body’s meridian system which helps to support emotional equilibrium. This practice emphasises stillness and inner focus and the use of restorative poses refreshes, renews and nurtures the body and mind. Using props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets enables the body to gently stretch and open within a pose allowing for deep and therapeutic relaxation. This peaceful, recuperative class is appropriate for students of all skill levels.

  • Vinyasa Slow

    Vinyasa Slow is a mindful, slowly paced yoga class that incorporates conscious flowing of breath with movement of body. This class is appropriate for beginners however students brand-new to yoga are encouraged to attend a few beginners classes first. The challenge of this class comes from awareness of movement that is slow and focused so can also be a welcome change of pace to more intermediate-level students. This class will build strength through slow, focused movements, increase flexibility and range of motion via flowing movements and deep stretching. It includes focused and gentle opening of the body and spine, foundational yoga poses and sun salutations, attention to detail on breath and alignment, and some long holds for strength. Keen focus, concentration, control of breath, and determination are cultivated in Slow Flow.

    Room heated to a delightfully warm 25 - 27 degrees. Bringing a towel and water is highly recommended. 

  • Yang / Yin

    A delicious combination of Vinyasa Slow + Yin extended to 75 min. Start the class with a mindful, slowly paced yoga sequence that incorporates conscious flowing of breath with movement of body to unwind from the stresses of the day then dissolve into a blissfully still Yin-style stretch and warm down to nourish our connective tissue - fascia, joints and ligaments. This class will build strength through slow, focused movements, increase flexibility and range of motion via flowing movements and deep stretching.
