Yin yoga is the oldest form of Yoga. It is a system of simple long held stretches without muscle tension that access the deeper tissues of the body called the fascia. These stretches, strengthen & stimulate the fascia to encourage flexibility & freedom of movement in your body while releasing deep tension & relaxing the nervous system. The outcome of which is a reduction of stress and an increase of regeneration in the body & mind. The connective tissue is like plastic in fibre so it requires time to open (explaining the need for long holds.) This is when Yin becomes fascinating as each minute goes by, we feel the body open naturally – breathing into the tension and then exhaling to find that we have more space. With each breath the body sinks a little deeper.
Yin works to gently stretch your ligaments, joints, bones and your deep fascia networks in the body, enhance the flow of chi in your organs too. These classes have specialised poses that enable you to hold them for long periods of time (up to 5 mins).
Slowing things down this term with a focus on long holds in poses to increase strength and flexibilty, targeting hip opening, wrist, upper body, core and leg strengthening.
Flow yoga is a style of physical yoga which combines fluid movement with holding poses for several breaths. A typical class begins with a warm up to get the spine and joints moving in all directions, then progresses to sun salutation variations and standing poses to build cardiovascular stamina and muscle strength. Balancing poses usually follow standing poses to improve stability and focus the mind. Class winds down with some poses on the floor to calm and open the body. Every class ends with a 5-8 minute relaxation/guided meditation. Breathing exercises or visualisations my be incorporated into the class to aid mental focus.

JAZZ FUNK DANCE
My classes are centred around individual creativity and expression. Even if we are working on a specific style of dance I aim to incorporate aspects of self empowerment and self acknowledgement. I aim to share the love of dance and create a safe, fun environment for people to explore movement in a holistic yet modern way.
Jazz funk is a modern style of dance, using top charts modern pop and R&B hits. Jazz funk is a fusion of hip hop and modern jazz. This style of dance is very sensual, sexy and empowering.
Please wear comfortable clothes that make you feel good, and you will be dancing barefoot.
I look forward to dancing with you soon
I am so honoured to be teaching contemporary movement at Flow!
My contemporary movement classes are suitable for ages 14-18 years old.
Contemporary combines modern jazz, lyrical and self expression all into one. It is a very diverse style of dance and can be done in many different ways. Contemporary (as per the name) is an abstract style of dance that allows space for all kinds of movement that lie deep within the imagination.
In this class we will practice many different movement exercises that involve partner/group work to create mind and body connect. This class is very playful and will allow you to release and express yourself in a safe environment, whilst gaining connection with others through movement and exploration.
(We will not be working towards dance exams or qualifications)
Please bring a water bottle, long pants (for floor work), knee pads if you have any. We will be dancing in barefoot.
KID’S CONTEMPORARY DANCE
I am so excited to be offering kid’s contemporary dance at Flow for ages 9-13years!
Kids contemporary will be a class that is based around expressive dance, combined with elements of modern jazz and lyrical dance.
In these classes we will do different types of movement exercises to create a mind body connect, to allow the young ones to experience connection with other students through play and self expression.
My style of teaching contemporary is not traditionally structured, and we will not be working towards any exams or dance qualifications. I am hoping to create a space where I can facilitate a safe space for connection and expression through movement.
It is advised that kids bring a water bottle, comfortable long pants (as we use the floor often). We will be dancing in barefoot.
