YANG PRACTICES
HOT POWER/ HOT VINYASA YOGA

This dynamic vinyasa practice is always evolving. Expect a creative sequence in which your teacher unpacks a variety of poses by building on the foundations of flow. This class may include arm balances and challenging poses, but they are optional and we encourage our students to honour what their body needs each time they come to the mat.

We add the element of heat (32 °C) to create a greater surrender of the muscles as they open and strengthen. This practice will help shake out stagnation and ignite your inner fire.

Level: all levels welcome.

DYNAMIC

Revive Dynamic yoga is inspired by the natural movements of the body increasing your muscle responsiveness, awareness and strength. This yoga class blends breathing and with movement and can sometime include weights, ultimately creating a feeling of lightness, ease and relaxation.

Level: all levels welcome.

BEGINNERS HOT YOGA

Inspired by the classic Bikram Yoga 26 & 2 class condensed into an express 60-minute yoga revitalisation format.

Level: all levels welcome, suitable for beginners.

YIN PRACTICES
SLOW FLOW & DEEP STRETCH

A smooth linking of unhurried breath with movement, intensified by mindfully holding postures for several breaths, awakening your body and clearing your mind. Explore the details of each posture at a comfortable pace to allow your body to deepen into a stretch or pause in a strength-building pose. Expect deep hip, back and leg openings with longer holds to gain strength and increased mobility.

Level: all levels welcome.

YIN YOGA

Find a soft edge, be still, hold for time and breathe these are the tenants of yin yoga.

The long-held, deeply restful postures of Yin Yoga create a type of meditative practice that complements not only the more muscularly strenuous (yang) styles of yoga or any other physical activities but can also be a remedy to our fast-paced lifestyles.

This class targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. It is a mindful practice where postures are held for 3 to 5 minutes at a time.

Yin is a practice that encourages people to slow down–immersing in the kind of stillness that can lead to the expansion of consciousness.

Level: all levels welcome.

RESTORATIVE

The main focus of Restorative Yoga is that by relaxing in poses, with the aid of props, without strain or pain, we can achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Restorative yoga classes are very relaxing and slow paced. Props, like blocks, bolsters, blankets and straps are used so that you are supported in your pose comfortably. You will then hold the pose for an extended period of time. This practice is great to balance an active yoga schedule or to give yourself a break when you feel under the weather.

When you are practicing yin/restorative yoga, you will feel a sense of motionlessness and shapelessness, and this can lead you to feel some emotional discomfort and vulnerability. If this happens, stay with the breath and allow it to pass.

Level: all levels welcome.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of energy healing. It comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy).

Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks. Improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.

During the Reiki session, you will lie down on a massage table (fully clothed). The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands over (or directly on top of) your body in various positions, starting at the crown of the head (may differ from one practicitonner to the other).

What is thai yoga massage?

The ancient healing art of traditional Thai massage originates from the physical therapies branch of Traditional Thai Medicine. Discovered by westerners in the 1970’s, the practice has been adapted and evolved into what is known as ‘Thai Yoga Massage’ to suit our western lifestyle.

A Thai Yoga Massage sequence utilizes yoga-like postures, passive stretching, acupressure, sen work, massage and meditation to assist clients in reducing tension, enhancing flexibility, experiencing deep relaxation and improving overall wellbeing.

Thai Yoga Massage is received fully clothed on a large supportive mat. There are no oils or lotions used for this style of massage. Techniques are performed on client’s hands, arms, shoulders, head, face, neck, back, feet, legs, glutes and abdomen. Suggested attire for receiving your massage are comfortable, stretchy yoga tights or baggy pants and a short or long sleeved t-shirt and clean cotton socks.
