Our Yoga Classes

 

Our Yoga Classes

Yoga classes: Iyengar yoga, General yoga and Flow yoga. We also teach Stretch classes.  

Each style can be practiced by everybody.  However, you may find that one style is more appropriate to you, depending on your physical condition and your expectations.

So which style for you?

 

Iyengar Yoga

The focus is on detail, precision and alignment of asana. Through clear, concise instructions you are kept mindful and present throughout the class.  

Sequencing along with the use of props (e.g. blocks, belts, blankets) to achieve perfection in poses are distinguishing features.

Flow Yoga

The focus is on fluid transitions from one pose to the next. A series of poses are linked together with breath while still maintaining alignment and body awareness.

These classes are fast paced and energetic, however, you are constantly reminded to scan your body to ensure hips, shoulders and knees are properly aligned and engaged.

To enable you to go as far as is right for you, complex poses are broken down into steps.

Stretching

Catherine TraynorStretching teaches safe and effective techniques of moving.  It reduces muscle tension and improves overall flexibility. It targets muscle groups – shoulders, neck, hips and back – that limit flexibility.  

The muscles are either strengthened or loosened to increase movement. Partner work is often incorporated to enhance a stretch.

These classes are great for those who have injuries and feel stiff. Also excellent for sports people wanting to enhance performance.

Some of the Benefits of Yoga

As a result of practicing yoga, parts of the body that have been injured or simply neglected are healed.

When you practice yoga asanas you can alleviate back, knee and shoulder pain. It brings mental repose and promotes better sleep.

Both men and women’s health will notably improve through yoga. Yoga also helps to tackle emotional and mental issues that we often face on a daily basis.

 

Furthermore, our yoga practices are based on principles of stretching, rotating, bending and relaxing. Consequently giving a positive and profound effect to all systems of your body. Whether it is helping to regulate blood pressure and hormones or improving digestion or giving relief from back ache.
