Classes & private trainings
Yoga Alignment I
All levels welcome.
This is a grounding and safe approach to yoga that teaches foundational principles of intelligent action through various breath and alignment centred asanas supporting freedom and flexibility in the body and mind. The practice may include pranayama, chanting, meditation, and the use of yoga props.

Yin Yoga
Yin represents all that is feminine, dark, passive, receptive and reflective. Movements are slow paced with long holds to reach areas rich in connective tissues and to increase circulation in joints. This is a journey inwards and more meditative practice to regulate the body's flow of energy.

Hatha Yoga I - II
Hatha Yoga is the most popular style of yoga in the Western world. It is the foundation of all movement-based modern yoga. Hatha is a great introduction to Yoga for Beginners because it instils a basic understanding of how to practice safely and effectively. Its benefits are significant relief from stress, chronic pain, depression, anxiety and self defeating thoughts. It also helps increase focus, concentration, attention to detail, and ability to complete tasks in the world.

Restorative Yoga
Suitable for all levels.
This session begins with chanting and then warming the body through a series of yoga postures in a short vinyasa-style flow. Once the body is warm, restorative yin yoga postures incorporating deep stretches that are held for a long time allow for realignment of the fascia (connective tissue). Stillness combined with physical challenge help train the restless mind and bring about physical rejuvenation and restoration. We close with a guided relaxation, allowing any remaining tension to release. This restorative style of yoga helps you to feel relaxed and refreshed.
