With a focus on developing mindful awareness in every asana, as well as in the breath, this is a great class for students who are looking for a well-rounded practice. A gentle, dynamic practice synchronizing body movement with the breath to align and connect mind, body and heart. A challenging, yet invigorating practice with each teacher bringing a unique style and quality to this class. Focusing on strength, flexibility and balance over 60 minutes - catering to all levels so there will always be a variation that is available for you. Our Hatha Yoga practice is suitable for all levels of the practice.
Vinyasa style yoga is a flowing sequence linking breath with movement. Set to challenge the practitioner with different shapes and transition with moments for deep introspection. This class is great if you want to focus on building strength, heat and flexibility. Our Vinyasa Yoga practice is suitable for all levels of the practice.
Yin Yoga is slow, quiet, passive and challenging.Working the 'yin' tissues of the body. Strengthening our ligaments, joints, fascial networks and bones with a focus on exercising the denser connective tissues of the body. A practice that encourages us to stay in a particular pose for a longer period of time, with an emphasis on stillness to awaken us to the present moment. A suitable practice to open up channels of energy in the body, which have been blocked or a little stagnant. A great class to pause and a beautiful way to compliment your dynamic flow classes. Our Yin Yoga practice is suitable for all levels of the practice.
The integration of two powerful energies. We start the class dynamically (yang) and end the class with longer held poses (yin) to relax and calm the nervous system - Think organic flow, muscles, heat and then visualise deep, connective tissues and absolute stillness over 60 - 75 minutes. Our teachers ask you to respect your body at all times, but to challenge your mind if the opportunity arises. Leave feeling revived, refreshed, balanced and supported to tackle adversity with power, strength, patience and love. Our Yang/Yin Yoga practice is suitable for all levels of the practice.
Combining self-massage (Myofascial Release) and Yin Yoga, 'MyoYin' restores deep relaxation to all parts of the body, mind and nervous system. We start using balls, blocks and other tools (such as your rolled yoga mat) to release tension, adhesions and trigger points, which are often the root oflimitation to our range of movement and bodily pain.Then, through long-held postures, we rehydrate the body-wide network of connective tissue (fascia), freeing up energy that is trapped/blocked so that it can feed the brain, central nervous system and vital organs. Throughout the class, with a focus on mindful breathing and inner sensing, we will employ deep listening to our intuition and the wisdom of our own body to reliably point us in the direction of healing and integration. This therapeutic practice can lead to profound changes in our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing,by experiencing the uninhibited flow of prana (life force) and a deeper connection to self. Our MyoYin practice is suitable for all levels of the practice.
Chair yoga, a gentle form of yoga that's done whilst seated, laying on the floor, using the wall or using a chair for balance, making the practice a lot more accessible. The practice is open to new students, as well as regular students that have been practicing yoga for a while. It is also a non-intimidating way to get into yoga if you are de-conditioned or have some physical limitations, or to maintain your regular yoga practice after an injury or surgery. If you are a regular, seasoned yogi then this practice may also help you to go a little deeper or further in your practice as we use the chair for support, exploring a whole range of poses.. Not to mention how quickly it reduces stress and helps your balance.
Yoga Nidra is a very profound practice that offers you the opportunity to dive into deep rest, rejuvenation and to heal and revitalise your body and mind. Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, a state where the body and sensory mind are completely relaxed and the yogi becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner conscious realm by following a specific set of verbal instructions. When practiced regularly and long term, you access a great ability to transform your mind in a very specific and empowering way. We will use specific practices to yoke together the mind and breath to awaken a unified awareness within your being. You’ll be guided through the entire subtle body to unify breath to dissolve into the sacred intelligence of prana. You'll be guided into your parasympathetic nervous system to restore your body and immunity as well as deep healing. Our Yoga Nidra practice is suitable for all levels of the practice.
Yoga for Pregnancy
This 60 minute pre-natal yoga class incorporates cultivating connection to your instinct and intuition, embodied movement, meditation, mindfulness, breath work and other tools for an active birth. You will deepen your connection with your baby, your body, and your breath, and be ready for birth. For all the beautiful Mumma's to be, we would like to extend a warm welcome to you, and to experience our studio after 14 weeks. We strongly encourage a gentle, modified Yoga practice starting in the second trimester. There are literally millions of changes going on in your body in early pregnancy: physiological, emotional and (very) hormonal. Even if you feel healthy and well, your body is working extra hard to create your own mini person and this is definitely a time to slow down, adapt mindfully to the changes and simply take care.
Mum's and Bub's
It is recommended that women (re)introduce yoga around the 6-12 week mark after giving birth, and only once your care provider has given you the all clear. With so much emphasis on pregnancy and labour, the post partum period is often neglected and undervalued. This weekly 50 minute class goes beyond being a class with baby by your side. It is specifically for new mums to aid post partum recovery, both physically and mentally. This offering will support strength building, restoration, rest, breath work, mindfulness, confidence, and connection. Please bring a yoga mat with you (or hire one from us), an extra towel to lay over a bolster if needed, a wrap or blanket (for baby) and any toys to keep your little one entertained. We will be keeping the studio space nice and safe for any creepy crawlies. We also suggest that you bring baby in a carrier of some kind as our entry way may be quite restricting for the storage of multiple prams.
Expect to feel a slow burn throughout your entire body as we target individual muscle groups through strengthening, lengthening and energising pilates-based exercises. As we flow together, we will focus on mind to muscle connection, leaving you feeling strong and centered. Everyone is welcome to this class, including pregnancy. Jordan is specifically accredited to offer modifications.
As you enter our studio, you leave the outside world behind and immerse yourself in good vibes, which ultimately creates a happy and healthy experience on and off the yoga mat.
