TUESDAYS 7-8PM & Saturdays 11am-12nn: HATHA FLOW
This class will include a flowing sequence of classic postures that will leave you feeling supple and refreshed. We will move with the breath to connect the body and mind and help you find a steady pace that you can maintain with awareness and integrity. Suitable for everyone from strong beginners up.
TUESDAYS 8.15-9.15PM: Yin
This gentle class will work on releasing deeply held patterns of tension and restoring vital energy. The first part will focus on inner body work to develop awareness of the body. We will explore breathing and somatic practices that show us how to listen to the body and understand where, how and why we hold on to patterns of tension. This will be followed by supported yin poses to help us release and open specific areas of the body. This session is suitable for all levels.
Wednesdays 7-8PM & 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.
