TUESDAYS 7-8PM: Embodied Flow
This is an intermediate-level flow class that integrates deep core work and vinyasa yoga. Sequences and movements in this class are creative and organic, allowing you to build strength and heat from the inside out. Learn to sense into your natural alignment and use your whole body to move in a holistic way. Leave feeling supple, centered, and revitalised. Suitable for those with 3 months’ practice experience or more.
Wednesdays 7-8PM: Restorative with Essential Oils
This class combines the soothing release of restorative yoga with the scents of the natural world. The oils and postures work synergistically to enhance your exploration of your inner world. Each class centers around a theme (such as renewal, cleansing, trust etc.) and uses a specific blend of essential oils—both diffused and applied—to help you dive deeper into your own experience of relaxation.
Saturdays 9.45-10.45am: Embodied Movement
This open class introduces new forms of movement that will help you broaden and deepen your felt understanding of your body. We will explore ways of moving that activate the deep core of the body and bring release to common areas of pain like the lower back, neck and shoulders. These movement patterns can also be applied to your yoga practice to help you sense your natural alignment and move with greater ease. Come prepared to inquire, play and discover something new about your body.
Sundays 9.45-10.45AM: Yin Yang
This is a part-flow and part-yin class that creatively combines active vinyasa and longer, passive holds. Balance out your yin and yang energy and learn to embody both movement and stillness. This complete practice will give you the best of both worlds in order to open, release and strengthen you on all levels.
