VINYASA FLOW YOGA:
Movement synchronised with breath & intention. I will guide you through a vigorous sequence of postures which includes standing, balancing, forward bending, back bending, twists & inversions (such as headstand & shoulderstand). This style of yoga not only makes the practitioner more strong and flexible, but also improves muscle tone and confidence. During the vinyasa phase if a student requires, I can assist them with [optional] hands-on assists.
This refers to a set of postures that are designed to align the skin, muscles and bones. It’s a slower paced practice that asks us to bring our attention to our breath, helping us to still the fluctuations of the mind and giving us the opportunity to be more focussed on the present.
Although yoga might seem to focus mainly on flexibility, I can guarantee you that there’s so much more to practicing yoga than just this. Yoga is about creating space for yourself, in both your mind and body. It’s about building strength and a functional range of movement, no matter how old or how flexible you are. It’s about accepting and respecting your body’s limits so that your progression is steady, safe and useful. It’s about working with the body’s nervous system responses and finding an easy path back to relaxation. Yoga encourages you to be present, and to let go of anxiety and stress.
