Class Descriptions and Levels

There are several different types of yoga class at the studio - and it's good to have a variety in your practice.  The following descriptions will help you decide which classes may be right for you but if you have any questions, please get in touch.

 
 

Hatha

This class begins with stillness and breath awareness before moving into a sequence of yoga asanas (postures). Most postures will be held for between 5-10 breaths and you will be guided in and out of each posture. Props are available to support your practice.

This class is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Hatha Flow

This class begins with sun salutations then develops through a selection of basic and intermediate yoga asanas (postures) to a peak posture with a focus on alignment, breath and mindful movement. Bricks, blocks and straps can be incorporated to support your practice. It is a medium paced class.

This class is suitable for all levels including confident beginners.

Flow and Restore

This class begins with breath work and a gentle flow through standing postures and balances. It then transitions to the floor where you will spend the second half of the class balancing the body and mind with longer-held yin postures.

This class is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Vinyasa

In the vinyasa class, all movement is synchronised to the breath to create a flow through the sequence of postures. A medium paced class, this flow will challenge your mind and body leaving you feeling energised and balanced.

Previous experience of sun saluations or vinyasa yoga would be beneficial but confident beginners are welcome to join the class.

Power

This is a strong and powerful class which is challenging to the body and mind. Following a similar sequence in each practice but with regular changes to themes and focus. The class moves at a fast pace and is physically challenging.

Previous experience of sun saluations or vinyasa yoga would be beneficial but confident beginners are welcome to join the class.

Yin

Yin yoga is a mainly floor-based practice in which we move slowly and hold postures for longer than in any of the other classes.  Although it is a slow practice, the challenge comes from the holding or postures and working deeper tissues in the body.  Props and modifications are an important part of the practice.

This class is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Restorative

Coming to the schedule soon. Watch this space.

Restorative yoga is a relaxation practice of deep, conscious rest.  Using multiple props to support the body, poses will be held for approximately 15 - 20 minutes.   The quietness and stillness of the practice helps to restore the whole body (physical, mental and emotional).  These are small group classes.

This class is suitable for all levels including beginners.
