Our classes explained
Vinyasa flow is called ‘flow’ because of the smooth transitions within a sequence of poses. Our flow classes often start with breathwork, mindfulness/meditation, warm ups and then move into a string of poses in a sequence, before winding down in mindfulness/meditation. Movement is synchronised to a breath. Our flow classes are accessible to beginners and advanced students, offering variations for each pose.
Hatha yoga has a slower pace than Vinyasa Flow, although encompasses the same asanas (poses). Poses are held for several breaths in Hatha, and include both yin and yang poses. Our Hatha classes also start with mindfulness/meditation, breathwork and warm up, before moving into stronger asanas, and then finishing with mindfulness/relaxation. Hatha is a great place to start for beginners wanting to learn asanas and alignment, and is also great for advanced students wanting to deepen their practice.
Yin Yoga is a quiet, receptive practice designed to bring fluidity and flexibility to the physical body, a sense of calm, kindness and resilience to the mental and emotional body and increased awareness and health for the energetic body. In our Yin classes usually consists of long held passive floor poses, usually held for around 5 minutes. Most of the poses work the lower body, including hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine, in an attempt to target the deep connective tissue. Yin is accessible to every student, and benefits those with tight muscles most.
