Hatha

Hatha yoga is the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) which help bring more peace to the mind and body.  These steady hatha classes are led at a comfortable and mindful pace, allowing you more time and space to connect with your body and breath. For this reason, newer students may like to start with Hatha classes however all classes include modifications and instruction for all levels.

Vinyasa

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. Generally the 630am classes are more dynamic to wake up the body and get our energy moving.

Yin

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.

Restorative Yoga

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.  Time is spent establishing poses, utilising yoga props to ensure effective positioning and comfort. You will then spend some time in each position to experience the therapeutic effects.

Kundalini

Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) uses postures, sound (mantra), breath, and meditation to heal your mind and body, as well as boosting glandular health. It is a very powerful practice; boosting the nervous and immune systems, improving strength and flexibility, and  aiding productivity and mental focus. Coupled with beautiful music and deep relaxation, Kundalini Yoga is a blissful experience to get in touch with your inner self.

Yin Yang / Yang Yin

These classes are a balance of both yang (stronger, movement based practice and yin (more gentle, less dynamic practice). They focus on freeing and harmonizing energetic channels in the body and are aimed at balancing the feminine/yin and masculine/yang aspects within us.
