Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a fluid and dynamic style of Yoga that increases circulation, warms the body and provides a moderate cardiovascular challenge.
Breath dictates the movement and the length of time held in the postures. The 'Surya Namaskar , commonly known as 'Sun Salutation' sequence is often practiced as a warm up in general Hatha Yoga classes. Here it is performed throughout a Vinyasa class in combination with a variety of asanas. Classes will strengthen and lengthen the entire body, promote internal health and cleansing by detoxifying your body.
Vinyasa practice will increase mental focus whilst aiming to calm and relax the mind.
Yin Yoga is a slower paced, therapeutic and meditative style of Yoga.
Often considered a simple practice, poses are held for longer periods of time (3-8 minutes) whilst taking a journey to the inner Self. Yin Yoga is a deep practice that encourages you to entirely relax the muscles, targeting the energetic and fascial layers of the body.
In addition to the physical challenges of holding and submitting to the poses, the class offers a meditative component, encouraging you to remain present and “let go”, bringing balance to the body, mind and spirit.
Combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class provides a balanced practice and can have a powerful effect on energy levels.

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind.
Meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energised states of mind.
Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.
