Yoga styles at our studio
Ashtanga yoga is a beautiful fluid spiritual practice that is taught in a set sequence. Postures are linked together with the breath and are synchronised in a series of movements. As you learn you will naturally go deeper into the series and your practice becomes a moving meditation. An empowering practice that once taught you have for life.
Yin yoga is all about slowing down, connecting with your breath and stretching for long periods of time, allowing participant to release tension and move deeply into poses. Yin yoga is a passive form of yoga (rather than dynamic or yang), it challenges you to find peace in what may be a slightly uncomfortable position for 3 to 5 minutes,
Kundalini Yoga helps to raise consciousness so we can better understand ourselves and live a more harmonious life. Involving a dynamic blend of physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation, mantra and relaxation. Through the practice of Kundalini Yoga, the store of latent energy lying dormant at the base of the spinal column is stimulated to rise up the spine and activate the pineal gland. Once activated, the pineal gland enables you to use the energy of the mind and emotions in a more positive and effective way.

Flow and restore is a gentle flowing practice blended with restorative yoga, often referred to as ‘active relaxation’. Restorative yoga is a gentle style of Hatha yoga, it facilitates deep relaxation in students as they awaken to the stillness within, tapping into deep relaxation and healing, that will restore, renew and balance the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body.
