with a difference
Vinyassa Flow is termed as such due to the smooth way that the poses run together to make a sequence. The sequence may be fixed, but most of the time the instructor will plan different sequences that follow a class theme. In Vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronised to the breath, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next.
Vinyassa Flow is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga and is influenced by Ashtanga yoga. Students come away with a good workout as well as an enlightened yoga experience. If you’re totally new to yoga, it is a good idea to take a few classes in a slower style of yoga first to get a feel for the postures.
…a great way
to start your day.
Our Vinyasa Flow classes begin with a mini meditation before moving on to a warm up. The sequence itself is the main component of the class, which is then followed by cool down and meditation. As part of the class, alignment hints, tips and corrections will be provided to ensure you get the absolute best from the classes and improve class after class.
Morning classes offer a great way to start your day by boosting energy and metabolism whilst setting an intention and focus for the rest of the day. This yoga class is suitable for beginners to intermediate levels of experience.
Restorative yoga is all about slowing it right down and achieving total relaxation through passive stretching. Contemporary yoga classes are active, transitioning through a sequence of poses. Through the use of props (bolsters, blankets, blocks etc), restorative yoga achieves longer holds of poses allowing the muscles to deeply relax without strain. The props do the work so you don’t have to.
Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a great way to complement more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
for deep relaxation.
You will be guided through a series of modified yoga poses using the props, and each pose will be held for an extended period. Although supported, the muscles still get the benefit of a work out. Attention is also paid to breath work which is where the yoga magic happens! You may only do four or five poses over the course of an entire class. For instance, a seated forward bend can become restorative by placing a bolster or folded blankets on top of your legs. This allows a fully supported forward bend by allowing your entire torso to rest on the props. It also allows your body to get a sense of the aim of a posture you may not be achieving in a regular yoga class. Legs up the wall is absolutely divine, the wall acts as a prop to support your legs. All of the benefit of an inversion with very little work.
Prepare yourself for deep relaxation when you attend a restorative class. At the end of the session, your body feels open and refreshed along with the harmony of physical and mental balance.
This class is suitable for all levels of experience.
