All classes include Pranayama (breathwork), Meditation and Relaxation. Classes are suitable for all levels of experience as variations, modifications and props are used to suit individual needs.

Pure Yin

Targets the bones, joints, ligaments & the fascial networks through the body.  Fascia is the connective tissue that pervades, nourishes, and holds together every part of the body.  The stimulation of the fascia improves the energy flow of Chi via the meridian pathways. Poses are held for a longer period of time, encouraging the mind to be drawn inwards, inducing a relaxed, meditative state. The longer holding of postures allows the muscles to relax, which enables to joints to move to their fullest range of motion. The practice is quiet, still, and often challenging. Beneficial for all levels of experience and all traditions.

Yin / Yang Variations

Yin postures to balance and revitalise the mind and body.  Moving Yang style sequences build strength & stamina, focusing on moving the blood & Chi. They are used to strengthen the legs & lower spine and/or strengthen the arms & torso.

Yoga Nidra

A deep guided relaxation which encourages physical, mental and emotional relaxation. A resolve or resolution is used to focus one’s life in a particular direction. Yoga Nidra sessions are held during our monthly Sunday sessions.

Assisted Yin

A ‘One on One’ personal Yin Yoga session. The stretching is done with you as you lay down and are moved into long, deep stretches. A deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

Personal Sessions

Personal Yoga sessions are used for a variety of reasons. Sometimes absolute beginners like to have a personal session prior to attending general class. These sessions are also used to fine tune your home practice, or addressing particular health concerns, or perhaps injury issues. A personal sequence based on the individual needs of the student is included.
