Gentle Flow & Restore

Starting September 19th 19:15 -20:30

Tuesdays

Yin Yoga

09:30 - 10:30 
Gail Stephens

Suitable for all
Good for bringing balance to the body’s systems, and a sense of alert calm to the mind
reducing stress and anxiety.

Yin and yang are in a continual relationship with each other – in life and in yoga. Much of our yoga practice these days can be described as yang; dynamic, active practices which work principally with our muscles. Yin Yoga is the yoga of the other half; a slow, gentle practice anchored into the breath and exploring deep into the yin aspects of ourselves, into the fascial networks.
In this class we take our time to find our edge – our unique expression of each posture – and settle there in stillness for a longer period of time (usually between 3 – 5 minutes). We let go of doing, trying, striving, and release into the space of just being.
Our guiding principles are: softness, curiosity, acceptance, kindness, patience, personal agency, honesty and effort. This is neither a therapeutic or a restorative practice; we are mostly interested in the Goldilocks’ principle – finding just the right amount of sensation (not too much and not too little), and then resolving to be still, paying attention to how it feels, and the possibilities that arise over time.

Align Refine & Flow

18:00-19:00  
Louise Power 

Suitable for all
Good for Improving Posture, Strength & Anxiety

Inspired by Max Stroms Inner Axis

Breath based fusion of yoga postures leading to slower paced flows, synchronising with the breath enabling you to adapt, move, breath in tune with your body. As we move in a controlled way it allows focus on our alignment for a safer, stronger and deeper practise. The result should always be that we create length and space in the body, achieving that in a safe and supported way, using muscle energy and core stability to protect the joints.

The verbal cues used are a modern and intelligent approach to yoga. Utilising anatomy, physiololgy, science and with the western body in mind, they can be a gateway to life long self exploration.
