Classes are gentle but everyone has an opportunity to take poses deeper or hold them longer. Variations and supports are offered for all poses to make them accessible for all. The aim is to enjoy your practice at every level. A respect and acceptance of your body (and all bodies) is encouraged. Enjoying the movement, the journey and the present moment is our aim in every class. Accepting the present brings evolution and change.Everyones journey is personal and unique.Classes are often themed to work on certain topics, for example, to balance immunity, calm the nervous system, address insomnia, hormonal imbalances, stress & anxiety, to improve posture, settle digestion, reduce sugar cravings etc using acupressure points and yoga postures that settle the corresponding energy meridians.Meditation is also an integral part of classes. We take a few minutes at the beginning of every class to fully arrive, settle and set our intentions. Again at the end of class we have a 10 minute relaxation meditation to allow the work, physical and emotional, to assimilate within our bodies and minds. Bliss!11.30am Strong Yoga is more physically challenging and is for those who have practiced yoga for several terms and are comfortable with several rounds of sun salutations, or are athletic and feel strong.
Strength, flexibility, balance and mindbody awareness are nurtured in every class.
