ASHTANGA

The Ashtanga Yoga System was first recorded in the ancient manuscript, the Yoga Korunta, by the sage Vamana Rishi. In the early 1900s its text was passed to Tirumalai Krishnamacharya by his Guru, Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and in turn from Krishnamacharya to his students, among
whom were K Pattabhi Jois and BKS Iyengar. Since 1948 the Ashtanga Vinyasa system has been taught at many Shalas in India, most famously the Yoga Shala formed by K Pattabhi Jois. It involves synchronising breath with a progressive series of posture ~ a process producing intense internal heat purifying and detoxifying muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. You will be lead by our senior Ashtanga teacher through the same sequence of postures that start with sun salutations before moving on to standing postures, seated postures, the finishing sequence and finally relaxation. Open to all levels.

NIDRA

Yoga Nidra (यग नद्र or yogic sleep) is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light withdrawal of the 5 senses (pratyahara) with four of his or her senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state of meditative consciousness called samadhi.

Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. Guided meditation performed in Savasana.

Open to all levels.

A wonderful way to unwind. Blissful class in a heated room to make you feel rejuvenated and relaxed. 

Class will begin with gentle, functional movement and energy cultivation practices (Qigong) to awaken and loosen the areas of the body that the practice will focus on.

In the second half of the practice we will slow down and sink deep into the subtle body with Yin postures. Intuitive use of props will be encouraged to help steady the body in deeper, longer holds where the only intention is to sink deeper when the body feels ready. This approach is said to release the fascia around the muscles and joints and promote more balance and efficiency along the meridian pathways (the same energy pathways treated in acupuncture, acupressure and reflexology).
