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).
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.

HOT YOGA 26 + 2
ZERO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! This Hot Yoga class is based on the classic 90 minute sequence of 26 Hatha yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises, also known as ‘Bikram Yoga’. Bikram Choudhury of India designed this yoga sequence to take to the West. The series is designed to work your whole body from the inside out. The postures are not complicated, nor do they require dance-like co-ordination. Anyone can practice this yoga; it truly is accessible to all. Classes are taught in a motivating and no-nonsense way that empowers the student to become their own teacher. The room will be heated to 35 degrees; warm enough to get a sweat up but not so hot to have you feeling overwhelmed. The mental strength required to get through a Hot Yoga class will translate to your everyday life and you will start to notice many improvements. So, whether you want to; transform your physical body; be more patient with your kids; reduce your back pain; improve your athletic performance; clear your head; become more mindful; or simply feel more confident within yourself; the 26+2 practice is a great place to start! “I look forward to meeting you” Lisa.
