Happiness Toolkit Part (2): Hip Openers
The second part of the Happiness Toolkit are poses to lift your mood. The focus here is on hip-opening, perfect if you have a sedentary job or have been travelling a lot, or are an athlete and have been working on your strength. This flexibility class gives strong hamstring stretches, forward bends, and hip opening in pigeon pose. An all levels class. Beginners will need to be disciplined and not explore the 'edges' of some of the modifications of poses explored and Intermediates have plenty of modifications to keep their flexibility challenged!

Yoga Fundamentals: Journey through the Breath and Bandhas
Sun Salutation Tutorial
This is a fantastic tutorial dedicated to Sun Salutations, which appear in varying forms throughout many different styles of yoga, especially Vinyasa Flow sequences. With specific focus on precision and alignment, Sylvia will guide you on how to perfect this pose which can be very useful for your future practice.
Yoga: The Basics
Starting mindfully, opening up the body, the sides of the body and hips slowly and gently, this vinyasa yoga class quickens to some beautiful vinyasa variations with its peak pose of bound bird of paradise which is then rotated, to challenge most of us in flexibility, strength and balance. Although an advanced practice, improvers will enjoy the openings at the beginning of the practice and the challenge - just do the variation which suits your own body, practice safely out there! Thanks to Asquith for their gorgeous clothing.
Vinyasa to inversion
A fast-moving vinyasa designed to get you ready to handstand, mostly with core work, plenty of vinyasa, ideal to practice before one of our Handstand classes in the Handstand Challenge, or for your own handstand practice. Without a cool-down, you will need a twisting and backbending sequence as well as a savasana after this class. We think that adding a yin or restorative class onto the end instead of, or after your handstands is just perfect!
