   Beginners Hatha Yoga   60 and 90 Minutes

Perfect for total beginners and suitable for anyone looking to learn or revisit the fundamentals of Yoga.  We will practice basic Yoga postures (asanas). The emphasis of these classes is on the teaching of the connection of breath, mind and body.

Our classes always start with a period of relaxation, gentle breathing exercises and stretching, allowing the body to warm up naturally. You will learn the Classical Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar C)  an important foundational sequence in yoga that will energize and warm you up. It will also stretch your entire body while strengthening your arms, shoulders, and legs.  Once the body is warm we will continue by looking at some of the more common asanas by breaking them down, allowing us to understand the connection of physical alignment and the use of the breath. Finally, ending our practice by lying down onto our mats and spending a little time time in our final relaxation (Savasana)


Hatha Yoga   60 and 90 minutes

For those who have been practicing Yoga for a while and would like to move to a more free flowing class

Using the experience and knowledge they have gained, students in this class continue to work on deepening their practice while increasing their strength, stamina and flexibility

Dynamic Flow  90 minutes

For those who would like to progress and to increase their strength and fitness through their practice. These classes start with relaxation, minfulness and pranayama (breath work), before moving on to  Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara A and B and C)

Though continuing in vinyassa flow style, we will also spend time working into some of the more challenging asanas.   As in the other classes, we will finish the class by spending some time in our final relaxation.
