Please be aware that yoga can be a dynamic physical practice. We recommend consulting with your GP before commencing yoga if you have any injuries, have had surgery in the last 12 months, or are pregnant.
This class is an introduction to the foundations of yoga for students new to yoga, or if you are returning to your practice. This practice will teach you seated and standing postures from the Hatha tradition, correct alignment, breathing techniques to quiet and calm the mind, and will close with a guided relaxation/meditation.
This is a Hatha class is focused on asana (postures), which will develop and deepen your understanding of the fundamentals to you presented in Beginners Yoga (Hatha) while you learn to incorporate inversions and back bending poses to your practice. Some yoga experience is required.
This Ashtanga class is open to all levels of experience. Ashtanga 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 Series. 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. Expect to get hot and sweaty! Please bring a towel.
This class is not “led” as a whole but rather all instruction is one-on-one within the group class setting. Students practice their own portion of the Ashtanga Primary Series of asanas at their own pace. The teacher assists each student individually by giving physical adjustments and verbal instruction. You can practice the full sequence or just part. Printed copies of the sequence will also be available for you to refer to initially as you find your way. Mysore is a great way to develop your own self-yoga practice, to advance your yoga by learning new asana as you progress through the series, and it provides a chance for you to ask questions and for assistance by the teacher at anytime. The studio is open for you to drop-in at a time that suits you between 6am and 830am on Monday mornings. You can stay as long as you like up until 830am – just be sure to allow enough time to work through your practice. Some yoga experience is required. If you are new to Astanga, we suggest popping into a led Ashtanga class to get a feel for it, but this isn’t a necessity.
This is a soft, nurturing, slow-paced, well supported, and relaxing practice. It is a fluid moving practice, taking it down a notch from the dynamic flow class. Suitable for beginners and those who prefer a more gentle and slower pace of Vinyasa.
The class is a general fitness and wellbeing class. It is all about creating a strong, flexible body and improving your energy levels. The sequences focus on improving core stability, overall body strength, and improving your range of motion. All poses are linked with yogic breathing practices to balance the nervous system and leave you feeling energised. Some prior experience required.
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.
Kundalini Yoga is a blend of Bhakti Yoga (the yogic practice of devotion and chanting), Raja Yoga (the practice of mediation/mental and physical control) and Shakti Yoga, (for the expression of power and energy). The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness. Regular practice of Kundalini Yoga provides you with life skills to build a strong self awareness and enables you to work through limiting beliefs so that you can live a heart led, happy and healthy life.
