 Class Descriptions

Beginners Ashtanga Yoga

An ideal introduction to the amazing world of yoga. The Ashtanga Primary Series is a set sequence of postures, completed in the same order, using the breath as a guide to flow from pose to pose. This class gives you an ideal foundation for developing a regular yoga practice. Class begins with Sun Salutations and moves onto a selection of standing poses. We will then move onto seated forward folds and twists, before coming to the ‘closing sequence.’ This class offers the opportunity for practitioners to progress in their own practice and to measure their yoga journey through their responses to each posture, each time the step on the mat. Class will end with the chance to snuggle under a warm blanket, put on a lavender scented eye mask and lay back in a guided relaxation. Book online

This class is suitable for complete beginners to yoga and for those who have attended a different style of class. All you need is a sense of wonder at what you could be capable of achieving. Here are some tips to help you get through your first Ashtanga class.

Next block starts 12 November 2019.

Candlelit Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Yin Yoga is a slow and gentle form of yoga which works on unfolding and releasing tension from deep within the body. Using the breath to hold focus, we try to cultivate qualities of patience, softness, effort and dedication. Yin yoga is an ideal complement to an active lifestyle, making it perfect to aid recovery between gym sessions. It is also a great introduction for those new to yoga, or those who need to slow down and switch off for a bit. Book online

This class ends with a 15-minute Yoga Nidra guided relaxation. Leaving this class, you will feel stretched and relaxed both mentally and physically. Read more about the benefits of Yin Yoga here.

Seasonal Yoga Flow

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), autumn is the season of letting go of that which no longer serves us. It is a time to acknowledge the cycle and flow of life, accepting change and allowing ourselves to let go. Our yoga practice begins to slow down, with the focus shifting towards breath work (pranayama.) Our morning class will begin with a focusing breath practice to help us settle into the class ahead. Flowing through a linked series of postures, we will continue to focus on the breath, building heat in the body to aid the release of tension and tightness. Finally class will end with a seasonal guided relaxation. Book online

This class is suitable for beginners and for more experienced practitioners.

Next block starts Saturday 16 November 2019. * No class Saturday 7 December.
