  • Liberate Your Hips: A Yin/Yang Flow47:57
    Liberate Your Hips: A Yin/Yang Flow

    Jonelle Lewis

    This yoga class is a mix between yin and yang to increase mobility in the hip joint. Starting with yin yoga and Qigong, it then gently flows towards some more yang poses to work the inner and outer hips and to free up the spine for a lovely balanced way to liberate the whole body. This class is perfect for a slightly gentler morning choice or in the evening if you've spent the day seated or standing. Working with the water element, it brings softness and a sense of letting go. You will need two bricks and a strap.

    A really relaxing yoga class of gentle movements followed by yoga nidra. This class doesn't need a yoga mat and can be done in limited space or even in bed.

    The Sacred Pause

    Adrianna Zaccardi

    The shorter, darker days are coming, this practice is an invitation to honour the call to pause. In this practice we will be exploring savasana’s variations, where you can fully rest. Note: if you are pregnant, I would advise remaining in the first pose of this sequence for the length of this. Unless you are still in the first trimester and feel comfortable transitioning onto your back for the second pose.

  • Balancing Yang and Yin56:21
    Balancing Yang and Yin

    Clive Fogelman

    This class is, we think, the perfect balance! With balance of movement and stillness. The first part of the class is focused on fluid movement, and the second part is more restorative, a yin class. With plenty of hip stretches, the class is ideal for stretching after periods of sitting or after work or travel. We love practicing this class early evening, first to move to get the stress of the day moving out of your body, and then the yin to soften and release into the evening. You might need some blocks or cushions for support during the yin part of the practice.
