Class Descriptions

 

Beginners

This is absolutely a perfect class for anyone wanting to try yoga for the first time. Wherever you come you will be welcomed and it’s not a course, so you can join in at any point and not be ‘behind everyone else’. Each week will be similar but a little different to give students the opportunity to gain competency and learn the postures, breathing and how to meditate, but will also be a little different to ensure there’s something more to explore as we go.

These classes involving careful movement working on strength, flexibility, balance, focus and more. Elements of philosophy, meditation, breath focus and movement are all included.

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 Flow & Yoga Flow

These yoga classes are 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 these classes also benefit from a weekly focus taken from classical yoga philosophy.  The key is about coming back regularly - week after week.  You will experience a vinyasa-based sequence, breath awareness and meditation, plus some chanting, music and readings. It's a physical, psychological and spiritual practice in one.

What’s the difference between Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Flow? Vinyasa Flow is a more energetic and strong physical practice - real workout for the body, mind and spiritt, while Yoga Flow will keep you challenged and focused with a slower pace and less emphasis on it being a real ‘workout’.

These classes are suitable for all students who have experience of hatha yoga already.  Continued study - monthly rolling passes available. Vinyasa flow would suit those who already exercise and want to complete sports or gym with a yoga class that ticks all the boxes. Yoga Flow is perfect for someone who wants to be in their body, forget their day-to-day and go with the flow for 75 minutes.

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 'Fundamentals'

Alignment is the emphasis in these classes. Students are taught how to do asana as well as the use of props in accordance with the Jivamukti Yoga principles. The Fundamentals class provides the underlying structure to help a student be able to enter into a Medium or Open level Jivamukti class with self awareness and confidence. Beginners and students new to Jivamukti are encouraged to attend all 4 weeks and intermediate and advanced students will also benefit from exploring the alignment essentials presented in these classes.

Each class explores a different theme each week:

  • Week 1 - Standing asana

  • Week 2 - Forward bending asana

  • Week 3 - backward bending asana

  • Week 4 - inversions, Putting it all together

 

Jivamukti 'Medium'

This class has the magic and wisdom of Jivamukti Open class but is taken at a steady pace & focuses on alignment of fundamental postures rather than working into more advanced asana.

It is the perfect way to learn a lot about how to keep your body safe and yet challenge yourself. This is the perfect class to come to in order to deepen your understanding of the Jivamukti Yoga method and to also prepare yourself for Jivamukti Open 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.

 

Restore Yourself

If you take a restore yourself 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 fitness/pilates or yoga type classes. Featuring specific breathing exercises and meditations to help you deeply relax, and during the long holds, your muscles are allowed to stretch themselves and relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Restore Yourself classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
