Vinyasa Flow

This class incorporates vinyasa style Yoga, music and breath work to give you a class that embraces your senses on every level. You will leave your day behind as you begin to move very much focusing on the breath. Some Yoga experience preferred. A fantastic partner class to an Ashtanga practice, this class will really help you build strength in your legs, core and flexibility in hips and upper back. We usually finish with pranayama and meditation.

What to expect in a Vinyasa Flow class

  • Vinyasa is the linking of postures and is an essential and creative element of this style of Yoga.
  • Unlike Ashtanga this style of Yoga does not follow a set sequence. Instead it may follow a theme such as backbends, balances, hip stretches or inversions.
  • You can expect a strong emphasis on strength, core work and flexibility as well as an element of pranayama and meditation.
  • Music is usually played and we try to have live music every few months in the Saturday class from talented musicians. This is a challenging, energising and often deeply moving practice.
  • We recommend that students at this level are practicing 2 to 3 times a week.

What are the benefits of Vinyasa Flow

  • This class will energise you and help you develop a sense of physical, emotional and spiritual well being.
  • The class continues to build on the foundations from the Beginners Yoga and will enhance strength, flexibility and stamina.
  • Our main focus in this class is teaching from the breath which allows for a calmness and focus and develops a flowing energy to your Yoga practice.

The Pelvis Part 1- Saturday 5th June 12pm-1.30pm– Working on bones, lifting and spreading and activation

The Pelvis Part 2- Saturday 26th June 12pm-1.30pm– Working on muscles around pelvis and into hips

. Join Nichi for this very important Yamuna Body Rolling Work. Working on the pelvis allows for many other areas of the body to also change and realign.You will find that the sides of the pelvis are never aligned with each other,

*because people use them differently. These differences are what cause the many types of imbalance that result in pain and chronic pelvic and hip problems.
* People almost always bear more weight into one side of the pelvis than the other.
* One hip is usually higher than the other.
*One hip is farther back or farther forward than the other.
* Other habitual postural patterns, as well as patterns in work, sports, and hobbies, also contribute to pelvis imbalances.
Additional contributing factors:
* Injuries
* Pregnancies and postpartum conditions of the pelvis
In addition, chronic weight-bearing from the upper body—whether correctly aligned or
not—exerts excessive pressure down into the pelvis.
Pelvis work is as important for both men and women. It will help maintain a solid pelvic foundation throughout life. The hips are one area where people often get stuck. The routines that follow address the areas of the pelvis
that take the most impact during standing, walking, and running, and where it is easiest to access the bone and improve its quality.

In both workshops we will start with foot alignment and activation as it is important to realign the feet first.
