Finding Strength & Flexibility
In this strong, challenging vinyasa yoga class we explore the edge of flexibility and mobility. Learn to be strong as well as flexible, challenge your boundaries and progress your strength, mobility, flexibility and balance through both the upper and lower body and into the core. This yoga class builds gradually and gracefully from the ground through to flowing sun salutes, arm balances, standing poses, into the peak pose of Utthita Vasisthasana. You will need a strap.
Opening The Shoulders
The focus of this creatively-sequenced intermediate vinyasa is to release holding and tightness around the shoulders and reconnect the shoulders blades deep into the back. With an open chest, the heart can breathe more fully again. Working with back lengthening and strengthening poses this will help to create support, ease and poise. You will need a blanket (or rolled up yoga mat), 2 foams blocks and a strap.
Lotus Focused Vinyasa Flow
An intermediate/advanced level vinyasa yoga class. The lotus is a great symbol for moving into stillness to expand our consciousness. This fabulously sequenced hip- focused yoga class is a playful exploration of half lotus to help release and open the hips and pelvis and create a secure and rooted foundation for body and consciousness which will enhance spinal alignment and allow the flow of prana to move more freely through this channel and the wingspan of the back. You may need blanket, 2 foam blocks and a strap.
Strong Centred Flow
A fairly feisty yoga flow. A quick-paced vinyasa suitable for intermediate and advanced students. The focus is on a strong centre, a gathering in, in order to expand out. This class is swift to get moving, great if you want to get a move-on and you'd like to learn a more balanced, stronger and more centred approach to extension and flexion. You may need a few blocks and a strap.
Gravity Surfing Vinyasa
An energising vinyasa yoga class full of peak poses with a focus on letting gravity ground you as you rise, twist, backbend and balance your way through this gorgeous, flowing vinyasa. With advanced peak poses, intermediates can play along and surf the edge of your challenge! You may need a yoga strap.
Grace and Strength Vinyasa
Wave like fluidity of the spine through variations in the namaska sun salutations feeling grace, strength and power. From a slow, graceful beginning and with plenty of more advanced yoga poses to challenge the intermediate and advanced practitioners, those not ready for the peak poses of handstand, half moon and the splits should hold back to where you feel more comfortable.
Letting Go Vinyasa Flow
This slow flow class is designed to rid the body and mind of tensions which accumulate as a result of life's experiences. These tensions can hold us back, so the class focuses on releasing them so that, in time, we are ready to move on. The class begins slowly and mindfully with supine breathing practices for the first eight minutes. If you want to get moving sooner, but still gain the benefit of tension release, you may want to start with child's pose eight minutes into class. This class is a slow vinyasa flow, focusing on mindfulnes and release.
