    Explorative Movement

    Naomi Absalom

    A conditioning, strengthening movement class in which we explore movement, away from a traditional yoga asana class. Naomi brings in lots of different elements to give space and range around all of the joints. With plenty of different movements, this class doesn’t focus on the end shape or posture, but is all about the integrity and how things feel to you during practice. You will need two blocks and a smallish book.

    Full Body Tune Up

    Naomi Absalom

    When is a vinyasa not a vinyasa? When it's full body tune up. This yoga class isn't yoga in the traditional way. Class focuses on full mobility in the body working systematically through all the joints and works on range of motion. If there's any class that everyone should do everyday to make sure that the whole body is tuned, it should be this class. The class is all-levels, although including some headstand variations which of course should be practiced only if that's in your regular practice. Some of the movements are to a full range of motion, so are tough, so do take class in your own time, at your own pace and only do what is helpful for you. Class ends with a chant.

    Spacious and Fluid Spine

    Naomi Absalom

    This class is a somatics-based which focuses on how yoga feels from the inside rather than how the poses look from the outside. This practice is not a traditional posture-led yoga class but focuses on freedom of movement, giving spaciousness between the joints and especially the spine. With a focus on spaciousness between the joints and especially the spine, you might find that a stiff or sore back feels freer and you feel increased mobility in your spine and a stronger core.

    Big & Fearless Heart

    Naomi Absalom

    Most of us have experienced fear of some kind and know that when we're in it's grip the ripples permeate all areas of our lives. Allowing fear to continue to have power over us keeps us firmly locked in cycles of fear, anxiety, low self esteem and so on. A big part of beginning to break down some of these patterns is actually providing space and time to experience our own vulnerability - sitting with the feelings and sensations which arise when we do so. This is a beautifully deep and transformative flow and part of Naomi's personal home practice. Expect plenty of backbending and as usual a lot of breath! You will need 2 blocks.
