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.
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. Yoga develops all round health, flexibility, strength and balance. This class will energise you and help you develop a sense of physical, emotional and spiritual well being. This flowing class is aimed students who have a regular Yoga practice. 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. Vinyasa is the linking of postures and is an essential and creative element of this style of Yoga.
Music is usually played and we try to have live music every few months in the Saturday class from either hang drum or double bass. Chanting to shift our focus and experience the vibration of sound can also be a part of this class. This is a challenging, energising and often deeply moving practice.
The class continues to build on the foundations from the Beginners Yoga and will enhance strength, flexibility and stamina. We recommend that students at this level are practicing 2 to 3 times a week.
