Dynamic classes intertwine breath and movement increasing physical awareness, building strength and flexibility and build inner fire.

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga - A powerful and dynamic style of yoga developed by Sri K Pattabhi Jois, in which set series of postures (The Primary Series) are linked dynamically to the breath in a flow of movement increasing strength and flexibility. When the set sequence of postures becomes familiar, the mind relaxes and the practice can become deep and meditative, yet still dynamic. This class is open to all levels from beginners with no previous experience of Astanga yoga, through to Intermediates and Advanced.

Mondays 7pm

Fridays 11am

Saturdays 12.15pm

Vinyasa Flow

In a Vinyasa Flow class you can expect a fluid physical practice in which carefully crafted sequences of postures are linked mindfully with breath. 'Vinyasa' in Sanskrit can be translated as ‘placing with attention’ so there will be a focus on moving with awareness from posture to posture. Depending on the teacher and the time of day, the class may be more or less dynamic. Vinyasa Flow classes may also include some more static postures, as well as pranayama and meditation. Some teachers may use music. Each teacher brings their own unique mix of styles and influences: refer to teachers' biographies for more detailed insight.

Yoga Flow with pranayama

This class will begin or end with 10 minutes of the pranayama practice - breathing techniques used in yoga to oxygenate the blood flow and calm the mind. This will be followed by mindful yoga flow practice paying attention to the breath by moving through yoga asana practice. Pranayama, is a set of practices designed to control prana within the human body by means of various breathing techniques, meditative visualizations and physical locks (or kumbhaka).

Mindful yoga flow - is the slow movement from one yoga asana to the next connecting each movement with your breath. This allows you to enter the meditative state of concentration and focus. By practising mindful yoga flow and pranayama we are strengthening the body as well as clearing the obstacles in our bodies, allowing breath and energy (prana) to flow freely. Our breathing is improved, our bodies function better and we calm the mind.

Jivamukti Yoga

In Jivamukti Yoga the spiritual teachings of yoga are typically linked with the more physical practise (asana).
Jivamukti Yoga was founded by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984 in New York. It is a Yoga method that is based on a strong Vinyasa Practice set to music (connecting Yoga Asanas through fluid transitions, driven by the breath), and it integrates teachings from five other Yogic disciplines: Swadhyaya (Study of the Self/Philosophy), Ahimsa (the Practice of Non-Violence), Bhakti (Devotion), Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound) and Meditation. The purpose of this methodology is to learn how to improve one’s quality and joy of life, and to bring greater harmony into our relationships.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is a transformative practice termed the ‘The yoga of awareness’. It uses ancient science and technology through ‘Kriyas’ which are (sequences of physical workouts, deep meditation, pranayama (breathing) and chanting). Classes are always completed with deep relaxation to rejuvenate the ‘whole self’ and being.

As a complete workout, these dynamic sequences unlock the vital energy/prana, opening & balancing the endocryne, nervous & lymphatic systems. As our hearts soften, we restore our energy systems bringing a vitality and equilibrium, that supports and meets the demands of modern day living.

We are embodiment. Any experience, physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, is deeply encoded in our muscles, our cells, in our sensory functions, our behaviour, and how we engage in life. Similarly every physical movement we do, every experience we go through, any posture we hold, continues to shape our identity.
