This is a gentle soothing and nurturing practice. Emphasis is on building awareness of the breath and the body. Recommended for students looking for a restorative experience, especially those newer to yoga, are pregnant, postnatal, have chronic pain or injuries. A class which incorporates props, meditation, restorative or yin practices, and gentle fluid asana.
Yin YangOur Yin Yang Yoga classes combine the slow-paced Yin Yoga postures, that are held for longer periods of time, with an invigorating full-body flow sequence that moves with your breath at a moderate, but intuitive pace.
Designed for anyone who wants to slow their flow and tap into the foundations of a creative and accessible yoga practice. Asanas are practiced at a slower pace with attention to alignment and the subtleties of practice. This is a great class for new yogis to get their footing in a safe and welcoming environment, and for seasoned practitioners to explore a more rooted flow.
A flowing practice linking breath with movement. The practice guides you towards building internal heat, cultivated through attention to breath and a faster pace. Linking postures through seamless transitions, this class gives us an opportunity to explore and expand. Come to your mat with an open mind and find a little extra freedom in your spirit. All levels are welcome.
Yin yoga is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy practice. Yin yoga works deeply into our body. It targets our deepest tissues of the body, our connective tissues — ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body — rather than the muscles. Energetically, Yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. A Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. Expect a practice in stillness, one that calms both body and mind.
MyoYin combines the use of myo-fascial release(MFR) techniques and Yin Yoga asanas. Myofascial Release is a technique that involves applying gently sustained pressure on connective tissue restrictions in order to restore motion, reduce tension and create more freedom in the body. Suitable for all bodies and all experiences.
Mysore Drop In
A Mysore class is the traditional method of learning Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. You can expect to be carefully guided through the series step by step and at your own pace. A pace measured by the rhythm of your breath. By learning to practice on our own in this way, we cultivate a regular form of ritual to nourish and observe as it grows. The Mysore room is open daily for all levels to embrace being students together in a clear, safe and encouraging space. No prior knowledge is needed, and the sequence does not need to be memorised before you start. If you are curious about the tradition and considering taking up a regular practice, the Intro to Mysore Course is encouraged. This takes place in the Mysore Room with a second teacher, and numbers are kept small to ensure everyone feels attended to.
During this class the teacher guides you through the postures of the Half Primary series, of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Method. The whole class moves and breaths together, it is a powerfully dynamic and focused class. These led classes are a fantastic class to focus the mind, connect with the breath, feel the rhythm of the practice and to learn the Vinyasa count. Led classes are an important compliment to your Mysore practice. A fast-paced class for students with yoga experience. The Intro to Mysore course is recommended before attending.
We are in a beautifully diverse area, and not everyone can access yoga. We want to make sure everyone has a chance to practice.
Mum + Bub Yoga
Runs in 4 week blocks, bookings required.
Yoga is a wonderful way of looking after yourself after the birth of your baby. Yoga relaxes the nervous system and brings balance to the endocrine system (hormonal balance). It helps to create a balance between your body's physical needs and your emotional state.
Mum + Bub yoga classes are specifically designed for the postnatal months by helping your body regain strength in a safe and effective way. The emphasis is on strengthening the pelvic floor, the abdomen, legs and back as well as on opening and relaxing tensions in the shoulders, neck and arms.
Since these classes are held solely with other mother's, you can feel comfortable attending to your baby's needs either by feeding, changing, holding or generally reassuring them in your presence.
Commencing 16th of September
