Deep Flow All Level

Deep Flow is a gently flowing form of Vinyasa Yoga and ideal to wind down and ground the body and mind.  The rhythm of this practice is calmer and the Asana sequences are designed to train the deep musculature and tissue to fully mobilise the body.
Floor work is an essential part of the class and Asanas are held for longer to allow more time and attention for elongating the muscles and opening the joints. Despite the slower pace, the flow of movement remains uninterrupted and the practice has a very deep and intense effect on the system.

Tuesday, 10.00 – 11.15
Sunday, 18.00 – 19.15

Hatha Yoga All Level

Hatha Yoga literally means joining or connecting opposite energies. It traditionally relates to the concept of sun (vigorous, outward energy) and moon (calm, introspection) and strives for physical, energetic and mental balance.
In this practice we consciously work with alternating physical contraction and release, dynamic exercises and stillness. By the means of breath work, meditation and visualization, mental balance will be cultivated. The practice contains heating sequences of sun salutations, inversions and back bends and cooling parts of full body relaxation, hip opening and forward bending.

Monday, 12.30 – 13.45
Wednesday, 18.15 – 19.30

Yin Yoga Gentle

Yin Yoga is a slow, regenerating yoga method, designed to come down and pause. It stimulates the calming branch of the nervous system, which serves metabolism, regeneration and the buildup of the body’s own reserves.  During the slow paced practice seated and reclined postures are held for three up to ten minutes and the connective tissues of the body are gently opened and stretched out. The support of the floor allows us to let go and experience deep levels of relaxation and clarity.

Thursday, 16.15 – 17.30

Yoga for the back and Shoulders Gentle

Yoga for the back and shoulders is an effective method to activate the body and ease accumulated tension. This gentle practice mobilises and strengthens the structures around the spine, releases blockades especially around the neck and shoulders and works the entire system to build a healthy and stable physique.

Thursday, 20.00 – 21.15

Restorative Yoga Gentle

Restorative Yoga practice perfectly balances everyday life and is an ideal addition to dynamic yoga or other sports. Throughout this gentle practice the body is repeatedly bedded on soft blankets and props to assist the gradual deepening of Asanas. Tension is released and the system restored to generate new strength and energy. Creative sequences will gently activate and stimulate the body to refresh just before the weekend.

Friday, 19.00 – 20.15
