Vinyasa means to ‘place in a special way.’ Drawing from the poses in the ashtanga primary series, vinyasa flow is a fluid movement class to energise the body increasing fitness, strength, mobility and flexibility. Through creative sequences, learn to move organically through each pose with the breath, gaze and focus in balance.
Yin Yoga is a slow steady practice during which passive poses are held between 3-5 minutes. It works deeply into the connective tissue and fascia and compliments more dynamic forms of yoga. It is a practice of awareness and letting go at the same time . Yin is a healing practice that stimulates the flow of chi through the energy channels (meridians) in order to balance the body.
