Ashtanga Yoga

Suitable for anyone with a reasonable to good level of fitness, some yoga experience preferred (or contact me for special rate 1:1’s to prepare for Ashtanga yoga class).  This class follows the postures and principles of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, taking half  of the primary series postures on alternate weeks. We’ll also look at breath, bandhas or internal locks, and the mind-body connection. This active and dynamic class will introduce you to a new and inspiring way of raising your general level of fitness and flexibility, achieving balance in body, mind and spirit.

Hatha Yoga

Working with traditional yoga postures at your own pace, this class will help you to develop strength and flexibility. Practise will include breath techniques or ‘pranayama’, and meditation, to ensure a calm mind and strong mental focus. Final relaxation helps to melt away any stress or tension for a feeling of lasting well-being.

Yin Yoga

Static, floor based postures are held for longer periods of time, enabling work to penetrate to the deeper body tissues.  Hatha and Ashtanga work on muscle strength and flexibility, whereas Yin conditions and strengthens the muscle fascia, joints and ligaments.  The static nature of this style does not equate to an easy option, but instead brings the challenge of totally stilling the mind and listening to our internal reactions to the poses being practised.  As a result Yin gives us a wonderful feeling of space and calm.

Prices

Please note that classes are bookable on a per-term basis only (term dates below). Classes are priced at £8 x the number of weeks in the term for Hatha/Yin, and £9 for Ashtanga yoga.
