This hatha class is an introduction to cultivating an advanced asana practice including arm stands, inversions and challenging balance postures. The class takes a workshop form with plenty of time for guidance, corrections and deep somatic (body) meditation. The aim is to open the doors to your physical and mental potential by increasing your flexibility, challenging your strength and bringing conscious awareness to the places in your body where limitations are met, accepted, breathed through, embraced and eventually shifted. Suitable for yogis with an intermediate level of asana practice and for yoga teachers of all hatha traditions that wish to go to a new and exciting place with their physical and mental practice.
Ashtanga yoga is taught as a set sequence of asanas (postures), synchronised with the movement of the body (vinyasa) and conscious breathing (ujayi) as part of the Primary Sequence of Ashtanga Yoga. The asanas are designed in a specific order to open, align and detoxify the body and nervous system. You will develop greater physical strength, flexibility and mental clarity through this practice.

Bring peace to your mind. Bring peace to your past. Bring peace into your relationships. Peace is 100% yours the moment you bring yoga into your life. Shanti (meaning ‘peace’) yoga is gentle and slow paced to be available to those who are new to yoga, those with physical restrictions and those wishing to have a mindful practice to help de-stress. You will be introduced to basic yoga philosophy principles to stimulate reflection, mindful breathing and movement to facilitate the journey within.
Yin yoga is a slower paced, deep stretch practice that combines floor poses with mindful meditation to open the body and calm the mind. Poses are held for longer periods of time in order to go beyond the muscular layer and to access the deeper structural layer of the body, including the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue. By placing the tissue under a controlled amount of duress, yin gives you greater freedom of movement and an overall sense of ease.
This Yin/Yang class combines a flowing movement practice (otherwise known as Vinyasa) with the slow benefits of yin yoga. Yang yoga is typically about building strength, power and stability in the body, while Yin yoga is designed to slow down and close your practice by holding postures longer to elongate deep-set tissues in your body, nurture your mind and calm our heart. This class is suitable for all levels of experience.
