MORE INFO  & BOOKING:

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

The Yoga of the “eight limbs” according to Patanjali, consists not only of postures (asana) but also of the practices of external and internal mindfulness (Yama & Niyama), breath control (pranayama), sense withdrawal (pratyahara), concentration (dharana), meditation (dhyana) and complete contemplation (samadhi).

All these limbs are practiced together in a set sequence (ie the first of the Ashtanga sequences, the primary series) that can be modified to suit all levels. This sequence is also known as Yoga Cikitsa (Yoga Therapy), as it has a powerful healing effect on the body, mind and nervous system and istruly one of the most effective and transformative practices to be experienced

Vinyasa Yoga

The sanskrit word “Vinyasa” means “to place in a special way”. Often it is translated as “ritual”. It refers to a “ritualised” synchronisation between movement and breath. A Vinyasa Yoga class consists of postures that are sequenced in a way that the practitioner can gradually explore and build up their physical abilities while remaining in a constant flow of movement and breath through which we can achieve a state of internal awareness, concentration and meditation.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a very slow and gentle but also very deep penetrating style of Yoga that is a perfect complimentary practice to Vinyasa Yoga.
Yin Yoga has a variety of incredible benefits:

On a physical level:

Fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds all our muscles, bones and organs and forms our ligaments and tendons, can tighten around weaker parts of the body (resulting from previous injury or, postural problems, emotional or physical trauma), causing this body part to feel tight and difficult to open up through a regular Yoga practice.
These tissues need a different approach to being exercised. Yin Yoga uses a variety of postures, mostly on the floor, that can be held for longer periods of time, using gravity and time rather than muscle force.

On an energetic level:

Each posture also works on an energetic level on the Nadis or Meridians of the body (which are situated within the fascia) and can have a similar effect to a Shiatsu treatment or Acupuncture.
Chakra work can also be done through Yin Yoga.

On a meditative level:

Each posture is held for several minutes. The nature of the postures and the longer peroid of time spent in them provide a great opportunity to practice mindfulness, breath awareness and meditation. Practicioners often find this more accessible than merely sitting in a meditative practice.
