This is the intention of all practice, to get closer to health and well being, which is What’s Inside Us.

Privates and Small Group Sessions

One 2 One

For rehabilitation or just for you a private session is designed for individual needs for healing and wellbeing. It is also a great way to either assist in developing a home practice or to further enhance your current home practice adapted to your body type. You can request a restorative session, great if you are tired or stressed. Learn how to let go of stress, anxiety and worry to live a more harmonious life.

Group (Matwork) Class

Our style is gentle, nurturing and supportive. It is enjoyable to practise, suitable for all ages body types and fitness levels. Instructions given in the classes are based on experiences with the classical yoga tradition.
 
Both dynamic and static movements are performed with emphasis placed on awareness of the breath. Postures are done slowly and smoothly and students are encourages to observe their bodies and to playfully, safely explore their boundaries with attention to correct technique and alignment in asana. The combination of hard work and deep practice has a beneficial effect on the nervous system, thus helping to maintain:
 
  • Fitness, suppleness and muscle tone
  • Energise both body and mind
  • Reduce stress
  • Strengthen the body’s own self healing powers
  • Control and calm the mind.
 
Every class includes relaxation, breathing and yoga poses and emphasises the release of tensions in the body. Releasing deep tension in the muscles promotes the process of healing and transformation on all levels, physical, mention, emotional and spiritual. Working with visualisation and meditation, to work, relax and sleep more deeply.
 

Pregnancy and Post-natal

Yoga can help prepare expectant mums physically, mentally and emotionally for birth and can help alleviate some of the discomforts of pregnancy such as backache, indigestion and sciatica. Classes incorporates gentle stretching, pelvic floor exercises, optimal foetal position, relaxation and meditation techniques to enhance you and your baby’s well being.  
 
Modifications are provided for each trimester. No previous experience is necessary.
 
Post-natal classes provide time for mums to focus their attention on themselves for part of the day, especially when it comes to their health and physical wellbeing.
 

Seniors

There is no age barrier. Tendons shrink and joints become stiff over time causing the loss of flexibility and mobility.   Yoga helps slow the ageing process helping maintain suppleness, building muscle mass and strength. The most noticeable improvements appear in balance, flexibility, mobility, upper and lower body strength.
