Yoga Class Descriptions
This instructional class will teach you how to pratice yoga with proper alignment and safety. It is a great way to ease into yoga if you are just starting out, haven't been for a while, would like to improve your alignment or you want to attend a more gentle, relaxed asana class.
Easy/stretch classes provide gentle stretching and breathing for every body. In this class you’ll gently loosen stiff joints and ease out aching muscles while soothing the nervous system and calming the mind. Easy classes are gentle, slower moving and lots of instructions are given and are a great way to start if you’ve never practiced yoga asanas before or if it's been a while since you’ve attended a class. It is also a wonderful class for the regular practitioner who wants a good all over stretch.
Melt into our relaxing yin class with this meditative asana practice. Soft lighting, mellow music and poses held for 3 – 5 minutes allow a deeper stretch and opening of the body and quiet rest for the mind. Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin yoga moves beyond muscle and generally targets the connective tissues, ligament, and bones of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Suitable for almost all levels of students. Yin helps you to slow down, listen to and be with the body.
Increase flexibility, destress and relax with this gentle flow. This meditative Hatha yoga class balances body and mind while giving an all over stretch and is an ideal pick-me-up and reset for busy lives. Using the breath to focus and deepen our practice, we allow the body to open and soften at a gentle pace which calms the mind and revitalises the body. Suitable for all levels and abilities.
Hatha Yoga classes are slower moving, poses are held longer and the focus on deep stretching and strengthening. Monday and Thursday classes are more challenging, but easier options are given to tailor the class to suit most levels of fitness and flexibility.
This class is a flowing vinyasa style class using sequential movement that interlinks postures to form a continuous flow. It is excellent for increasing aerobic fitness and strength as well as flexibility. Vinyasa is a stronger style of class and a little more challenging. However as with all our classes easy options are given, so you can make it as easy or challenging as you’d like.
