Class Descriptions

 

Gentle Yoga

The key is about coming back regularly - week after week.  For example, we might work one week on focusing on slow opening movements, another week may be more dynamic and stronger, another very meditative.  The goal is to create a class that is suitable to the more mature students, or students who want to take things a bit more slowly.  The class is challenging, but definitely suitable for a more mature student, those rehabilitating from injury, and those who want a much slower practice.

This class is suitable for all levels including new to yoga.  First Class FREE (subject to limited availability).  Continued study - monthly rolling passes available.

What to expect?  Postures and practices suitable for all levels (we will use props where necessary to make postural work more accessible and beneficial).  To focus on learning the foundational principles of yoga including asana, pranayama, meditation and life philosophy in a non-judgemental, informal and fun environment.

 

Vinyasa

This yoga class is a weekly journey through a flowing vinyasa sequence, integrating content formed from Jivamukti yoga, and my broad teaching and practise experience.  Expect both long flowing sequences and workshop-style new posture breakdowns.  *not suitable for complete beginners.  The students attending this class also benefit from a weekly focus taken from classical yoga philosophy.  The key is about coming back regularly - week after week.  

This class is suitable for all students who have experience of hatha yoga already.  Continued study - monthly rolling passes available.

What to expect? Postures and practices suitable for all levels (we will use props where necessary to make postural work more accessible and beneficial).  A variety of traditional yoga practices taught with care, precision and patience and practiced with focus, discipline and a sense of adventure and fun. Your life becoming enhanced with more of the good stuff that yoga enables.

 

Jivamukti 'Spiritual Warrior'

Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior classes are designed for busy people who only have an hour to practice. The class is fast paced and invigorating and is certainly a “get-in-shape” class. The structure is a fixed set sequence instructed in a vinyasa style. It is a fully balanced class which includes asana warm-up, chanting, setting of intention, surya namaskar, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, inversions, meditation and relaxation. The teacher focuses on keeping the pace moving and does not stop to give spiritual discourses. Since the asana sequence is always the same, a student will pick it up quite quickly after only a couple of classes.

 

Jivamukti 'Open'

Whether you're newer to yoga classes (some postural yoga experience is helpful) deciphering the difference between vrksasana (tree) and sirshasana(headstand) or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.

Following the teacher's verbal as well as hands-on guidance, asana options will be provided for those newer to yoga, intermediate and advanced students.  A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga: shastra (scripture); bhakti (devotion); ahimsa (kindness); nada (music); dhyana (meditation).

An Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. All Open classes include 14 points—asanas, meditation and spiritual teachings—in a sequence creatively designed by the teacher. Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role in classes and  this music is drawn from my experiences as a dj, musician, traveller and yogi.

The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to book a course of one to ones with me.

 

Restorative Yoga

If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga. During the long holds of restorative yoga, however, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
