Yin Yang / Yang Yin
These classes combine more gentle/yin style practice/postures with more dynamic/yang poses/sequences with a focus on freeing and harmonizing energetic channels in the body. They may include breath techniques (pranayama) and are aimed at balancing the feminine/yin and masculine/yang aspects within us. Wednesday’s class incorporates Chinese Meridian theory, each week the class is based around one of the Chinese Elements - Fire, Water, Metal, Earth, Wood.
Vinyasa is the synchronisation of breath and movement. This is a more flowing style of yoga, often including sun salutations. Vinyasa is designed to warm the body and build strength and flexibility. Some classes are stronger than others depending on the style of the teacher and the style of vinyasa being taught.

The style will be advertised in advance so you will know what you are signing up for!
Slow Flow & Meditation
This practice is a beautiful combination of 30 minutes of slow Hatha flow, 15 mins of gentle yin style floor-based postures and 15 mins of meditation/yoga nidra. After a busy day this is a wonderful way to shrug it off and prepare yourself for a more relaxing end to your evening and a peaceful night's rest.
A slow-paced style of yoga with more passive floor-based poses that are held for longer periods of time; about five minutes or more. The practice targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body; primarily working the lower part of the body-the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. Yin is a great complement to the more dynamic/yang styles of yoga.
A beautifully nurturing class which starts with a gentle asana practice followed by 30-40 minute guided relaxation. Nidra is also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness. It is an ancient practice intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. Forty-five minutes of yoga nidra is thought to be as restorative as three hours of sleep! Watch the video below to find out more....
Restorative Yoga is a gentle, accessible and profound practice that aims to help you feel more centred in yourself and in your body; aligning the physical and mental by practising stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time.
