Vinyasa is a flowing class where we move dynamically and playfully to explore our physical asana practice, often working towards a “peak” pose before melting into stretching and stillness. Vinyasa offers the opportunity to evoke curiosity and build strength and flexibility whilst honouring and empowering your body and it’s needs each time you step on your mat.
Expect to have fun, feel energised and perhaps get a little sweaty!
Yin is a passive practice where we hold floor-based poses typically between 3-8 minutes to deeply target the connective tissue and fascia that covers your entire internal body. A beautiful practice to complement the yang, yin offers stillness from within, the opportunity to observe and encouragement to practice compassion.
Expect to feel supported, relaxed and grounded.
Slow flow is a slower paced vinyasa class where we hold poses for longer to cultivate strength and awareness, with options offered to soften or deepen your practice. Slow flow offers the opportunity to practice moving meditation and focus on alignment and muscle engagement in each pose.
Expect to feel spacious and strong and breathe more deeply.
Gentle flow is an “all levels” class where we move softly but fluidly through simple sequences to warm up your body and shift any blocked energy. Gentle flow offers the opportunity to move mindfully with conscious breath and intention.
Expect to feel nourished, balanced and calm.
