Vinyasa Flow – Some yoga experience ideal
Vinyasna (breath synchronised movement) flow develops endurance, strength, balance and flexibility not only for the body but for the mind as well.
A strong and fairly fast paced class which gracefully harmonises fluid movements and longer held postures with the breath.
Slow flow – All levels
Slow flow is an integral part of a well balanced yoga practice. In a slower paced nourishing practice awareness and benefits are gained that don’t come as easily in a faster paced vinyasa.
A gentler class that combines active postures and vinyasa flow with restorative yoga.
