Which Style of yoga is right for you?

Flow Yoga

Vinyasa flow is a beautiful practise synchronising breath and movement into a seamless flow of sequences. Whether you attend a slow flow or energising flow class, it will be slightly slower than a traditional vinyasa flow class. This slower approach will help to bring awareness on all levels, keeping you totally present. 

This style of yoga will bring some heat and energy, but will also incorporate breath work and guided meditations so you leave feeling completely in balance.

Yin Yoga

A still and peaceful practise with long holds and no muscular effort which allow the connective tissue around the joints to be safely stretched.

 

Yin yoga targets specific meridian lines in the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, these meridian lines are energy channels linking groups of muscles. It is via these energy channels/ meridian lines which chi flows. Chi is often described as our vital essence, or our energy, which link spirit, mind and body. 

This passive practice includes seated and supine poses held for anywhere between roughly 3 - 5 minutes.

This style of yoga will leave you feeling blissfully calm.

Myo-Yin Yoga

Incorporating yin yoga with MFR (myofascial release techniques) to release tension in the connective tissue (fascia) and help improve posture, reduce pain and stiffness. 

 

Each class will focus on specific trigger points/restrictive areas to improve mobility and physical function. Combining these specific techniques with a calming yin yoga practise has a profound effect on both the body and mind.

 

This style of yoga works extremely well to combat today's sedentary lifestyle and helps to create freedom and space in body and mind.

Therapeutic Yoga

A gentle and restorative style of yoga incorporating movement, breath work and meditation, designed to harness the body's natural healing powers.

This style of yoga is best taught as a one-on-one or small group private class. This will allow the class to be specifically tailored to your needs so you truly benefit from its healing powers. 

This style of yoga is best suited to anyone looking to boost overall well-being, or to promote a recovery from injury or illness.

Yoga Nidra

A systematic guided meditation leading your physical body into a deep state of relaxation while your mind is somewhere between wakefulness and dream.

 

Commonly known as "yogic sleep", this precise guided sequence is a well researched, scientific method of removing tensions from both the physical body, as well as the mind.

Studies have shown yoga nidra can help to release tension, improve the functioning of the nervous system & endocrine system, improve anxiety, depression and can even help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

 

This is a practise which will truly improve overall health & wellness, helping to restore the body back into balance.

All classes are sealed with a guided meditation and relaxation to leave you feeling blissfully calm and present.
 
All levels are welcome in all classes.
