Vinyasa Flow: All Levels
Vinyasa Flow is a flowing (yang) sequence of movements, in which the Asanas (postures) and Breath (prana/chi/energy) are co-ordinated and inter-connected. In a vinyasa flow class, some of the asanas may be held for several breath cycles to encourage mindfulness, enhance the posture and integrate not only our physical body but also our hearts and minds. Classical yoga Asanas are taught, along with variations and modifications. The practice will help cultivate and increase strength, flexibility and strengthen the core/hara centre and resilience of the mind, body and spirit. The practice is a moving meditation and includes a soft (yin) posture to end our practice working with our subtle energy and savasana (relaxation) to calm the nervous system. (Warm room). 60 minute class.
Yin Yoga: All Levels
Yin Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stillness, slowness, calmness, cool, and gentle; Yang is movement, excitement, heat, and stimulation.
In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and fascia respond to the slower yin way of working, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and bones respond to hard, fast yang ways of working.
A Yin Yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses, done in a non-heated room, that mainly work the lower part of the body—the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for five minutes at a time, sometimes longer.
his way of working can increase flexibility and also calm the soul and de-stress the mind, and provides the ideal way to complement your regular yoga practice. But be aware; slow, calm practice does not necessarily mean that its easy! The challenge is still present throughout the class. Regular room temperature. 90 minute class
