HATHA FLOW

Suitable for all experience levels

Hatha Yoga traditionally is the term physical yoga asanas. In Sanskrit Hatha translates to 'Sun/Moon' two opposing energies coming together to balance as one. Strong masculine Yang energy to the soft feminine Yin.


Our Hatha Flow classes practice pranayama (breathing techniques), asana (physical postures) and dhyana (meditation) in a slower paced flow focusing on balancing strong Yang and gently Yin energy thorough a wide range of asanas. Asanas are held for 3 – 5 breaths each while focusing on feeling into your body, honouring your correct alignment and observing how you feel energetically. Our breath is our focus to create a mindful moving meditation.

This slower paced flow can be physically and mentally challenging. It is perfect for the seasoned yogi looking to work deeper or the absolute beginner learning the basics. Options are cued throughout the class so you can move into your practise as deeply as you desire.

VIN YIN

Suitable for all experience levels

Vin Yin is a hybrid yoga class perfect for those looking to move into a more dynamic practice, slowly.

The first half of the class is Vinyasa. Strong, flowing standing asana. Movement with each breath while focusing on building strength and endurance in your practice. The second half of the class kicks back a few gears and transitions to Yin. The focus becomes to soften, lengthen and move into a meditative state with long asana holds (3-5 mins each) in all seated asana.

YIN YOGA

Suitable for all experience levels

Yin Yoga is a combination of Taoist yoga principles, western science and Indian and Chinese energy systems. Yin Yoga assists in the movement of prana (or chi) flowing through our meridians, harmonising our physical body systems as well as shifting stagnant energy from within.

 

A series of seated asanas (adaptions from traditional Hatha yoga) are practiced with gentle breathing techniques and are physically supported by a variety by props.

 

The gentle breathing techniques allows us to move inward into a meditative state while the physical asana stretches the connective tissue - facias, ligaments and tendons allowing greater flexibility and release improving energy flow through our meridians. Each asana is held for a period of 3 to 10 minutes.
