YOGA COURSES+CLASSES

COURSE SYNOPSIS

Suitable for the novice and returning student alike, these classes will take you through the fundamentals of yoga practice.

 

As usual, classes will be challenging and lots of fun. Generally, the classes comprise a fusion of many styles of yoga including, IYTA, Iyenga, Ashtanga, Acro, Tantra and Oki-Do. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Japanese Shiatsu and Western Anatomy and Physiology are also woven into the fabric of the classes.

 

In accord with the mood of those attending, every class will be different and somewhat improvised. This variation keeps the classes relevant and interesting and prevents us from plateauing in our development from too much repetition.

 

Each new class builds on your knowledge. The flow of a typical class would be something like this:

  • a brief talk

  • a short relaxation practice

  • physical warm-ups for strength and mobility of muscles and joints 

  • classical yoga asanas such as twists: side, back and forward bends; balance and inverted poses — all taught in a graded style to accommodate any level of ability

  • pranayama (yogic breathing practices) 

  • Yoga Nidra — deep relaxation, to calm emotions and clear  'mental clutter'.

 

Classes may also include solo, partner and group exercises as per the individual's preference.

 

Yoga is about alignment, as much in a physical sense as in a metaphysical sense. You’ll improve your physical posture with correct alignment in the poses, and you’ll also become aware of any ‘misalignments’ with respect to your direction in life, and the activities and relationships you’re currently involved in. Yoga students may find themselves questioning their past decisions and making positive changes in their life direction. Or, if they’re already on track in their lives, they’ll be inspired by more energy and passion. 

 

Yoga classes can also provide new social opportunities and help develop existing friendships between students. Usually, towards the end of a term, we’ll enjoy a shared meal after a class, either at the venue or a restaurant close by.

 

All classes are general level. Anyone can join.
