Hatha Yoga
Hatha   yoga   emerged   from   the   6th   century   C.E.   onwards   and   was regarded   as   an   essential   preparation   for   Raja   Yoga   and   meditation (The   Yoga   of   Patanjali).   The   Hatha   yoga   system   highlighted   the   need for     body     purification     and     mental     stability     before     starting     with meditation   or   higher   practices.      To   learn   and   practice   meditation,   we need   to   have   physical   health   and   stability.   The   mind   can   only   be focused   to   experience   higher   states   if   the   body   is   healthy   and   in harmony   with   the   mind.   This   became   the   theme   of   Hatha   Yoga   and the cause of its popularity. Hatha    yoga    is    of    tremendous    value    to    our    health    on    every    level. Hatha   yoga   works   by   releasing   tension   from   the   body   and   mind.   Our energy   levels   increase   when   we   release   tension.   The   yoga   poses   help stretch   away   physical   tension   and   tone   muscles,   joints   and   the   spine, which   improves   posture   in   general.   Good   posture   prevents   and   eases backache,    increases    energy    and    boosts    self-confidence.    The    yoga breathing   exercises      known   as   pranayama   quieten   the   mind,   calm   the emotions   and   through   increased   oxygen   intake,   nourish   all   of   the cells   in   the   body.   Hatha   yoga   relaxation   techniques   known   as   nidra, and   meditation   practices,   keep   the   mind   sharp,   improve   awareness and   encourage   a   happy   and   peaceful   attitude   towards   life.   Regular practice can result in a deep sense of inner security and strength.
Vinyasa Flow
‘Nyasa’ – To Place ‘Vi’ – In a special way Vinyasa    combines    poses    to    flow,    one    into    the other,   in   a   sequence   designed   to   warm   up   the   body toward     greater     ranges     of     movement,     usually toward   a   ‘peak’pose.   On   of   the   primary   teachings   of vinyasa   yoga   is   to   align   amd   initiate   action   from   our breath   –   our   life   force   –   as   a   way   of   opening   to   the natural   flow   of   prana,   the   energy   that   sustains   us all   at   a   cellular   level.   Vinyasa   yoga   requires   that   we cultivate   an   awareness   that   links   each   action   to   the next – one breath at a time.
Yin Yoga
A    still,    quiet    practice,    that    offers    relief    from    the stresses   and   strains   of   a   fast   paced   busy   lifestyle. Through   long   held,   deeply   releasing   postures   the muscles    of    the    body    relax    allowing    the    work    to begin    on    the    deeper,    ‘less    elastic’    tissues    of    the body.   As   space   is   created   within   the   body,   tension is   released   from   the   tendons,   ligaments   and   joints. Yin   is   the   opposite   of   Yang   –   it   is   passive,   feminine and   reflective.   It   requires   us   to   turn   our   attention inwards    as    each    pose    is    held.    Our    awareness    is given   to   the   physical   sensations   within   the   body (whether   pleasant   or   unpleasant),   the   feelings   and emotions     in     the     heart     (whether     positive     or negative),   and   the   thoughts   as   they   flow   through the     mind.     Without     adding     anything     to     the experience,   or   taking   anything   away,   we   simply   wait with   present   moment   awareness.   A   willingness   to surrender   and   allow   the   practice   to   unfold   before us   will   bring   many   amazing   benefits   to   both   body and mind.
Restorative Yoga
Restorative   yoga   is   suitable   for   all,   and   is   perfect for    those    who    struggle    to    relax,    sleep,    or    suffer from anxiety.. Each   pose   is   carefully   prepared   and   propped   up,   so the   entire   body   is   supported.   The   poses   are   then held   for   long   periods   of   time,   allowing   for   complete relaxation.
Meditation and Relaxation
Our   meditation   and   relaxation   classes   are   held   in   a warm     and     friendly     space     and     are     open     to experienced   practitioners   and   complete   beginners. Typically   the   classes   will   include   yogic   breathing techniques   (pranayama)   to   help   calm   the   mind   and relax   emotions,   simple   yoga   postures   to   ease   and stretch    tensions    from    the    body,    concentration practises   to   help   to   hone   your   mind,   and/or   guided meditation,   fnishing   with   a   guided   relaxation   (yoga nidra).   These   classes   are   an   excellent   addition   to the   physical   practice   of   yoga   (asana),   and   with   the help   of   the   teacher   you   are   encouraged   to   relax and for one hour disengage from the outside world.
Pilates
As   one   of   the   fastest   growing   fitness   methods   in the   world,   and   practised   by   people   of   all   ages   and abilities,    pilates    not    only    helps    to    improve    your body    shape    and    alignment,    it    can    also    help    you become   fitter,   stronger,   more   supple   and   improve your   stamina   without   adding   mass.   It   challenges the   strong   and   strengthens   the   weak.   Pilates   is   not just   about   strength   and   a   lean   body,   it’s   a   tool   for living   a   healthy   life.   The   principles   you   will   learn from   doing   Pilates   can   be   carried   over   into   your daily      life,      enabling      you      to      enjoy      everyday experiences   with   ease,   balance   and   an   improved posture

It    requires    us    to    turn    our    attention inwards    as    each    pose    is    held.    Our awareness    is    given    to    the    physical sensations   within   the   body   (whether pleasant   or   unpleasant),   the   feelings and   emotions   in   the   heart   (whether positive       or       negative),       and       the thoughts    as    they    flow    through    the mind.   Without   adding   anything   to   the experience,   or   taking   anything   away, we   simply   wait   with   present   moment awareness.   A   willingness   to   surrender and     allow     the     practice     to     unfold before    us    will    bring    many    amazing benefits to both body and mind.
Restorative Yoga
Restorative    yoga    is    suitable    for    all, and   is   perfect   for   those   who   struggle to relax, sleep, or suffer from anxiety.. Each   pose   is   carefully   prepared   and propped    up,    so    the    entire    body    is supported.   The   poses   are   then   held for   long   periods   of   time,   allowing   for complete relaxation.
Meditation and Relaxation
Our   meditation   and   relaxation   classes are   held   in   a   warm   and   friendly   space and       are       open       to       experienced practitioners   and   complete   beginners. Typically   the   classes   will   include   yogic breathing   techniques   (pranayama)   to help      calm      the      mind      and      relax emotions,    simple    yoga    postures    to ease    and    stretch    tensions    from    the body,   concentration   practises   to   help to    hone    your    mind,    and/or    guided meditation,    fnishing    with    a    guided relaxation   (yoga   nidra).   These   classes are     an     excellent     addition     to     the physical   practice   of   yoga   (asana),   and with   the   help   of   the   teacher   you   are encouraged   to   relax   and   for   one   hour disengage from the outside world.
Pilates
As   one   of   the   fastest   growing   fitness methods   in   the   world,   and   practised by    people    of    all    ages    and    abilities, pilates   not   only   helps   to   improve   your body   shape   and   alignment,   it   can   also help     you     become     fitter,     stronger, more      supple      and      improve      your stamina     without     adding     mass.     It challenges          the          strong          and strengthens   the   weak.   Pilates   is   not just   about   strength   and   a   lean   body, it’s   a   tool   for   living   a   healthy   life.   The principles    you    will    learn    from    doing Pilates   can   be   carried   over   into   your daily     life,     enabling     you     to     enjoy everyday      experiences      with      ease, balance and an improved posture
