To flow, is to move with intention and exploration. We move slowly and also dynamically depending on the type of practise.
The physical practise of yoga is ‘asana’, the physical pose.
In flow classes we move between the asanas using the breath.
Classes concentrate on strength, alignment, movement and breath.
Flow classes are great for people with a busy mind who need focus.Book Now >
A slow, gentle form of Yoga. Yin and Yang takes the form of feminine and masculine, yin being more gentle and yang Yoga (vinyasa) more powerful, focussing on strength. Being slower in pace, it is said Yin Yoga is more relaxing, and can calm the mind quicker. Rather than putting emphasis on the muscles, in Yin we put stress on the connective tissues in the joints which can in time increase flexibility. In flow classes we hold each posture from 30 seconds up to one minute moving into a vinyasa. In Yin yoga postures can be held for up to 7 minutes, however these postures are not balancing, and props such as bolsters and straps are used for comfort and ease. This is great for anyone wanting the calm the mind, relax and stretch out the body after being sat at a desk all day.

Just as it says Yin Yang is a mix of both powerful vinyasa and slow Yin yoga. Classes begin with pranayama, gentle stretching, and a flow of Yoga postures (vinyasa), the second part of class will move into Yin and holding postures for longer periods of time to increase flexibility. Great for anyone who doesn’t know which style to choose.

Restorative Yoga, sometimes known as sleep yoga is very gentle, consisting of 5-7 postures that are held from 5 – 15 minutes. Using bolsters, straps, blocks and sometimes blankets, you can expect to feel completely relaxed and get a great night’s sleep afterwards. Restorative classes are 75 minutes long, for the body to evoke the relaxation response, which is the opposite of our natural state of fight or flight mode. I burn candles and incense during the class, and keep the lights off so that everyone can feel at ease, centred and most of all relaxed.

Expect to be guided into a deep state of relaxation whilst becoming increasingly aware of the inner world. The aim of the yoga nidra is not to fall asleep, but to withdraw from the 5 senses (pratyahara). The withdrawal aids a deep state of concentration and awareness, ultimately leading to the higher state of meditative consciousness (samadhi).
Yoga Nidra is the deepest form of relaxation whilst remaining conscious.
This 60 minute session will begin with slow movement and stretches before settling into a comfortable position for Yoga Nidra.
