Most of us have no idea, just how good your body is designed to feel.

Through regular Yoga practice you will feel physically strong and supple.

Yoga works on the whole self – body and mind. Practicing Yoga will strengthen your mental focus as well as making space to allow the body and mind to settle, relax and unwind. Your Yoga practice will leave you feeling invigorated, with energy levels you never thought possible.

Yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation practices have a positive and stimulating affect on the internal organs, immune system, digestive and lymphatic system, therefore providing a therapeutic treatment for many conditions.

For many people, practicing Yoga is simply a form of exercise or a way of alleviating the stresses of modern life, but ultimately, the practice of Yoga is a truly holistic approach to health. It has a positive effect on the whole self, both physically and mentally.

Yoga classes are practiced in a friendly, non-competitive environment and are suitable for all levels. 

Classes

Beginners Yoga. If you are completely new to Yoga, this is the ideal place to start. The pace of the class will be slower to allow you to time to practice and gain a good understanding of the postures. Props are available to help you achieved correct alignment in the postures.

Hatha Yoga for All. This Hatha Yoga class is open to all levels of ability. If you have never practiced Yoga before, you are encouraged to come along to the class early to meet the teacher and have a chat to prepare you for your practice or to attend the beginners class. The classes taught are firmly grounded in the traditional Hatha Yoga asanas (posture). The teachers skilfully blends Yoga asanas with breath work (pranayama) and meditation practices to rejuvenate and nourish the whole self.On a physical level, a regular Yoga practice will promote strength, balance and mobility. Total well being is attained by connecting with and balancing the mind, body and spirit.

Vinyasa Flow. At this class, you can expect a more dynamic class. The postures are skilfully linked to the movement of the breath to create a invigorating, flowing class.

Vinyasa Flow and Restore. This class offers a wonderful blend of a flowing Vinyasa practice and relaxation. To complete your practice, the relaxation section of the class will help you create space from the day-to-day demands we place upon ourselves to create a sense of  mental and physical well-being.

Gentle Yoga and Meditation. This class offers a guided meditation and gentle restorative Yoga postures. The benefits of meditation are many: stress relief, reduces blood pressure, greater focus and concentration, having a greater understanding and acceptance of ourself…to name only a few. The restorative Yoga postures allows the body to passively let go and relax. This class is the perfect mind/body tonic.

Yin Yoga.  This is a slower paced class, where postures are held for longer. It is a wonderful class to relieve tension and stress in the hips. legs and back. It’s the perfect compliment to the more flowing, dynamic classes. With the fast pace of life, slow down your practice and relax into a gentle restorative practice. It’s the perfect antidote to the pace of modern life.

OK winter, we’ve had enough now!!!
.
I’m sure, like me, you’re finding it difficult to find the motivation to get up and shake off the heaviness of winter…...Yes, this Kapha season is dragging on a little now.

That’s what happens, you’re not alone. Kapha - heavy, slow, cold, moist...sounds just like the weather doesn’t it?
.
So what do we need to do to shake-up Kapha? We need to get it moving. .
Sleeping beyond 7am? You’ll definitely feel sluggish. We’ve got the perfect antidote...join Livi for ‘the perfect start to your day’. Livi’s back teaching her regular Ashtanga class on Saturday morning and starting next Thursday - 28th February, she’ll be teaching a 7am Vinyasa Flow class.

.
Mental clarity throughout the day. Shake off the brain fog and heaviness of Kapha. Take advantage of your most productive time of the day. .
Start your day feeling happy….just try it to feel the benefits.

It takes a little discipline at first, but even Aristotle said “Through discipline comes freedom”.
.
