Yoga

We offer different types of classes with each teacher offering their own style.

Dynamic Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa stems from Hatha and Ashtanga yoga and movements are held together by smoothly flowing from one pose to another using the breath to relax the mind and stimulate the body. Vinyasa Yoga is great for beginners and those who have been practicing a while and want to continue to add a challenge to their yoga practice.

Lucy Trollope

IMG_0282-2Lucy is a qualified yoga teacher, registered with the Yoga Alliance. She has built her teaching on her love of sport meaning she offers a dynamic, flowing class that will challenge you to build strength, improve posture and work on your flexibility so you feel the benefits across your daily life; be it desk job, to compliment your sports training or running around after the kids!

Lucy’s classes are open level and suitable for men and women of all yoga abilities and she’ll offer modifications throughout so you can gain the most from and progress your practice week by week. You don’t need to flexible and you’ll have a lot of fun trying new postures. Every class will combine periods of high intensity with slower-paced restorative work and will always end with a well-deserved period of relaxation.

Lucy balances her love of teaching yoga with a busy city job and her many hobbies (including running, cycling, hiking, good wine and food!)

Hatha Flow

Hatha Flow takes its root from the traditional Hatha practice, drawing on the classical Hatha yoga postures to focus on correct alignment whilst emphasising awareness of the breath to bring mindfulness to every movement.  Both the Monday and Wednesday Hatha Flow classes involve a mixture of gentle flowing sequences, core strengthening and restorative poses to release tension, support good posture and proper alignment while replenishing vital energy. The Monday Hatha Flow Class is slightly more dynamic and the Wednesday Gentle Hatha Flow Class creates space to slow down and tune into the movements both outside and within the body.

Each week, classes revolve around a central theme which may for example focus on particular postures or certain parts of the body.

Iyengar Yoga


Iyengar Yoga is characterized by great attention to detail and precise focus on body alignment. Iyengar pioneered the use of “props” such as blankets, benches, blocks, bricks, straps, and even sand bags, which function as aids allowing beginners to experience asanas more easily and fully than might otherwise be possible without several years of practice. Props also allow tired or convalescing students to enjoy the benefits of many asanas via fully “supported” methods requiring less muscular effort.

Viniyoga

The term ‘Viniyoga’ is a Sanskrit word (from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras), which means ‘the appropriate application of’ yoga. In yoga classes this means working through a planned sequence of postures, some of which will be dynamic and others static. The effects of postures on the mind and body are enhanced by a sensitive and prescriptive way of breathing. In order to make practices appropriate, postures can be adapted to meet individual needs so that people can work safely within their limits, and observe any changes over time.

She offers a balanced and varied class, incorporating not only meditation and yogic philosophy but also using Tai Chi and Taoism to enhance her teaching. One of the main ingredients of the vinyasa practice is Pranayama (breathing exercises) which, with its direct link between the breath and mind, also plays an essential role in Amandine’s classes. The emphasis of the class lies in meeting the needs of the individual participant, and assisting them in developing their own understanding of yoga.

As the Bhagavad-Gita (a classic yoga text) says “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”

Wise Kids Yoga ~ Parent and Toddler / Pre-school Yoga

unnamed

Come and experience our Wise Kids Yoga classes. In Toddler Yoga we move, play, stretch, sing, dance and rest. We have fun, soulful teaching to give children and parents a safe space to connect, develop, create and express themselves.

Parent and Toddler Yoga is an opportunity for you to experience what the world of children’s yoga has to offer. It’s a time for you to connect with your child through physical play, teaching them what their bodies can do and best of all to cuddle and relax at the end.

We know that Toddlers want to move a lot, have bags of energy, are full of hormones and
can be fiercely independent. This is all fine and we hold space for them to be all of these things during our classes. We don’t expect toddlers to be zen yogis, we don’t expect them to be quiet and still.

We know that Toddlers want to move a lot, have bags of energy, are full of hormones and can be fiercely independent. This is all fine and we hold space for them to be all of these things during our classes. We don’t expect toddlers to be zen yogis, we don’t expect them to be quiet and still.

We offer parents the opportunity to connect and also to let go of their child to observe their potential. We offer them their first experiences of relaxation, something becoming increasingly important to learn as early as possible, even just for a few seconds. They will move about the room but they will observe relaxation and this is also how they learn.

Pre-schoolers want to learn. We teach them the basic poses in yoga and we relate these poses to how they connect with the world around them.

In yoga we feel happy, we feel free, we feel safe, we feel complete.

Please join us, we look forward to meeting you and your child

Wise Kids Yoga classes are run by Mehala Ford and the teacher is Emily McGregor. We are both Starchild Yoga teachers

Due to start in early September.

Yin Yoga & Meditation

Yin Yoga is a slow and meditative practice where postures are held for little longer so that we can work deeper into the areas of the body that may need more attention – the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are mostly floor based and held between 3 – 5 minutes. Practicing in this mindful way cultivates the atmosphere to turn inwards and is great preparation for meditation.

Yin Yoga is a lovely practice on its own, or to compliment and supplement those who also practice more dynamic styles of yoga.
