General Yoga Class

Wednesday 10am - 11.30

This class will provide a stronger range of held asanas (postures and balances) and vinyasa surya namaskar (salute to the sun)for the whole body. Learn to use pranayama techniques (breath regulation/energy control) while moving in and out of the postures, ensuring dharana  (mental steadiness of the mind) and increased energy levels. This then ensures preparation for dhyana (meditation techniques) which is designed to switch off the stress response and turn on the relaxation response. Feel free to use your sankalpa (intention) for self love or to focus on a pointed resolve for a specific goal anytime throughout the class.

Restorative Yoga Class

This class is for all levels and designed to restore the nervous system and help release tensions from the mind & body. The front and back of the body will feel more open/balanced through passive/gentle stretching and strengthening, suitable to your needs/conditions/injuries. This will occur through the use of props to support muscles, so they can relax while you hold 5-6 asanas (postures) using pranayama techniques(control of breath/energy) for short periods.

In addition, you will feel the benefits of yoga nidra (yogic sleep) or meditations (dhyana) at the start and end of each class, enabling a sense of peace, healing and relaxation, including accessing your sankalpa (intention) self love or to focus on a pointed resolve for a specific goal.
