Starting something new can often feel a little daunting, so beginners classes provide a freindly, safe space to begin our practice. These classes offer a little more time and instruction on the basics. Although aimed towards beginners, people at all levels are welcome to attend. However long we have been practicing we can benefit from slowing down and revisit the foundations of yoga.
slow mindful flow yoga
Slow flow classes offer a more flowing practice, combining movement with breath. Classes build slowly; we begin by pressing pause from our day, connecting to our breath, and checking in with what we need from our practice in that moment. Sequences are offered at a pace that provides a sense of fluidity, whilst allowing time for correct alignment. Variations are offered so that the classes are open to people of all levels - from beginners to more experienced practitioners. Classes combine elements of mindfulness, pranayama (breath-work), postures (both flowing and held), meditation and relaxation.
Eastern traditions recognise that true wellbeing comes from balancing the opposing energies of yin (calm / cooling) and yang (energetic / fiery). The demands of modern life however can often leave us operating constantly from this more driven, fiery side which, over long periods of time, can leave us tired and depleted. Yin yoga offers an antidote to this. In this largely seated-based practice poses are held for 3 minutes or longer, allowing muscles and connective tissue to gradual release. This process of letting go, both mentally and physically allows us to embrace stillness and quiet and surrender into the experience as it.
unwind and relax - gentle yoga
This gentle, soothing practice will provide the opportunity to gently unwind your body and calm your mind at the end of the day. It will include a guided relaxation so bring a blanket, pillow and anything that helps you to feel warm and comfortable to relax and unwind.
therapeutic yoga for stress and fatigue practice
In these unprecedented times it is natural that our stress response can run high. The good news is that yoga holds many tools that support us in calming our nervous system so that we can regain a sense of stability, calmness, balance and clarity.
This extended practice will offer a range of tools to ease our bodies and calm our minds during difficult times. We will combine simple breathwork with the gentle, but powerful 'pawanmuktasana' joint-releasing series; enabling us to gently ease tension in the body from tip to toe. We will then drop into restorative stillness, providing the conditions to rest and reset. This practice is open to all and suitable to those who have no experience of yoga.
