Yoga Styles

 

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa means breath-synchronised movement.  Classes involve linking of body movement and breath with creative synchronized movement, used to transition between sustained poses.  Expect a dynamic fast paced class.  Classes, sequences and transitions are created by the individual teacher and so vary with each class. 

 

Ashtanga

The practice of Ashtanga is a fast-paced series of sequential postures practiced in a specific set sequence, brought to the West by yoga master K. Pattabhi Jois.  Ashtanga classes guide students through the Primary Series of asanas, developing attention to pace, breathing and finer details of the practice.  This is one of the most physically challenging practices due to of the constant movement from one pose to the next.

 

Yoga Basics

This class is designed for students who have completed our yoga foundation course and who are looking to continue to improve their practice and to build their confidence to join an open class.  This class is perfect for beginners, although intermediate students can also benefit greatly, as classes will focus on a smaller number of poses, transitions and alignment in greater detail.

 

Ashtanga self practice (Mysore)

This is the traditional form of teaching the Ashtanga yoga method as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. Rather than following the instructions of a teacher, you practise at your own pace whilst the teacher gives individual guidance and adjustments to each student where necessary. The Ashtanga sequences are learned pose by pose (so you may start with a relatively short practice). When the student is ready, the next pose is added.

 

Power Yoga

Early students of K. Pattabhi Jois developed Power Yoga. It is as physically challenging, flowing but unlike Ashtanga, does not have a set sequence. A Power Yoga class will be based on the flowing style of Ashtanga, but not necessarily keep strictly to the set Ashtanga series of poses.  Expect a physically challenging class.

 

Slow Flow yoga

Although Slow Flow classes are slower and quieter than a typical Vinyasa Flow class, they are still strong and challenging.  Classes are intelligently sequenced and created by the teacher and incorporate a softer flow with poses held for longer.  These classes are suitable for all levels.

 

Jivamukti

Jivamukti classes integrate a vigorous and challenging vinyasa asana practice to inspiring soundtracks, with pranayama, meditation, Sanskrit chanting an emphasis on Yogic philosophy.  Jivamukti Yoga was founded in 1980’s New York by artists David Life and Sharon Gannon with the aim of communicating yoga to the modern world as more than just physical exercise but as a spiritual practice.  Expect to be challenged physically and intellectually.

 

Restorative

Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures.  In Restorative yoga, props are used for support the body so that you can hold poses for extended periods, allowing you to open your body through passive stretching. Restorative postures are adapted from supine or seated yoga poses with the addition of blocks, bolsters, and blankets to allow for gentle opening and stretching.  These classes are deeply relaxing and the perfect antidote to a busy life and a complement to the more dynamic physical practices.  Expect to leave feeling open and refreshed.

 

Pilates

The aim of Pilates is to restore the natural strength and structure of the body and allow the body to work to its full potential with the least amount of effort. Pilates draws inspiration from both eastern and western exercise regimes, working muscles on a focused, deep level to strengthen the abdomen, stabilise the spine and support the back, and helping to develop correct postural alignment and enhance flexibility. One of the strengths of the Pilates method is that it works so well for a wide range of people.

 

Meditation

Meditation is the core practice of yoga, which gives us insight into and connects us with ourselves. Though simple and easy to practice, its results are powerful and far-reaching. A growing body of modern research has shown the benefits in terms of deep relaxation, emotional balance, creativity, a sense of wellbeing and many others.

Meditation goes beyond the body and the mind and connects us with ourselves on a deeper level.

 

Parent And Baby Yoga

Parent and baby yoga classes are fun and teach mothers how to engage with and play with their babies in a joyful way. It also enhances babies’ mental and physical development, and is great for getting recent mothers back into shape.
