Group Classes

Group Yoga classes provide possibilities for time out from the stresses and demands of daily life. Classes provide an opportunity to experience and develop in terms of body, breath and mind.

Movement and breath together with some meditative practice are integrated to promote balance and to maintain and improve health at both a physical and a psychological level.
Yoga is not defined by how well a posture is done. Yoga is defined by how it influences our lives and that is where the power of Yoga lies.

Classes are run for both beginning and continuing Yoga students. Classes are small with consistency of the same students thoughout the term, enhancing the learning experience.

Yoga Beginners

The primary aim is to become familiar with and learn some of the core principles of Yoga.

The emphasis is on:
  • learning some primary Yoga postures (āsana)
  • exploring dynamic and static in terms of postures
  • learning how to incorporate the breath into practice

Yoga Continuers

The focus is on development and refinement of breath and movement in postures. Class addresses the fundamentals that deepen your practice.

Depth is enhanced within primary postures through application of subtler Yoga techniques.

Intermediate Yoga postures together with seated breathing practices and meditational techniques are incorporated into the practice.

Some Yoga meditational techniques (mudrā) are explored and developed through seated breathing practices to develop and refine breath and attention.

Yoga in Pregnancy

Yoga students who are pregnant are accommodated within the general group class setting. Yoga postures are modified according to the stage of pregnancy.

Appropriate movement and work with the breath helps to create strength and stability during pregnancy and assists with both the physical and psychological preparation of delivery.

Yoga is beneficial also after pregnancy to rejuvenate the body and to assist with the structural alignment of the body.
