This class introduces forms of movement that help you sense and feel your body in different ways. We will explore ways of moving that activate the deep core of the body and bring release to common areas of tension like the lower back and neck. These holistic 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—leave feeling supple, centred and revitalised.
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.
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.
