    Vinyasa FlowBook Now

    The Sanskrit word vinyasa means placing with awareness. Our vinyasa flow classes are built around varied and creative sequences of postures linked by the thread of the breath in a flowing style, sometimes interspersed with longer holds. Breath focus is integrated throughout the class, helping to centre and quieten the mind, and classes may include pranayama and seated meditation.

    Vinyasa flow classes tend to be more physically demanding than those described as Yoga as, in places, they flow more quickly and more energetically. They may be set to music to promote the connection with our inherent rhythm.

    Yin YogaBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access. During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and concious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos. Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own, as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Mandala Flow - All LevelsBook Now

    A Mandala is a picture of a geometric pattern within a circle, representing the universe. Mandalas have been used for many years as a focusing tool for meditation across different traditions, both religious and secular. In Mandala Flow yoga we move in circles and spirals around the mat, stimulating both sides of the brain and accessing parts of the body and mind that we may not perhaps access when we move in a purely linear way.

    Each class focuses on an element, a chakra or a particular group of muscles, using rhythmic pulsations and repetition to encourage the body to open and go a little bit further with each rotation. The class will start and finish with Yin Yoga (static poses held for longer periods), in order to bring the mind into a meditative state and balance the yang flow of the Mandala. The class is designed to help you relax, renew and restore at the end of the week, preparing you for the week ahead.

    Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Classes described as yoga do not fall neatly into any of our other class styles. Often this is because the teacher has studied a variety of styles within the yoga tradition so that his/her classes reflect a more eclectic, personal approach. While generally based around posture practice, these classes often also delve more deeply into the subtle inner practices of yoga, including breath work and meditation, exploring how the range of yoga practices can help quieten the busy mind and encourage greater peace and happiness. Please read the teachers biography for more insight into their personal style.

    Jivamukti YogaBook Now

    In Jivamukti Yoga the spiritual teachings of yoga are typically linked with the more physical practise (asana). Jivamukti Yoga was founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984 in New York. It is a yoga method that is based on a strong Vinyasa practice (connecting yoga asanas through fluid transitions, guided by the breath), and it integrates teachings from five other yogic disciplines: Swadhyaya (Study of the Self/Philosophy), Ahimsa (the Practice of Non-Violence), Bhakti (Devotion), Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound) and Meditation. The purpose of this methodology is to learn how to improve one’s quality and joy of life, and to bring greater harmony into our relationships.

    Jivamukti classes include a challenging and constantly changing physical practice with inspiring music, and include meditation, chanting and spiritual teachings. This class is not recommended for those who are new to yoga.

    Yin Yang YogaBook Now

    This class is split into two halves. Starting with the yang, the dynamic flow, to get the body moving and create internal heat. We will then move into the yin part which is the quieter more subtle practice. Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access. During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and concious state at all times. Yogas-citta-vrtti-nirodhah “Yoga is the restriction of the fluctuations of consciousness.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to a dynamic Yang style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own, as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials.

    Vinyasa FlowBook Now

    The Sanskrit word vinyasa means placing with awareness. Our vinyasa flow classes are built around varied and creative sequences of postures linked by the thread of the breath in a flowing style, sometimes interspersed with longer holds. Breath focus is integrated throughout the class, helping to centre and quieten the mind, and classes may include pranayama and seated meditation.

    Vinyasa flow classes tend to be more physically demanding than those described as Yoga as, in places, they flow more quickly and more energetically. They may be set to music to promote the connection with our inherent rhythm.
