"If you know what you are doing, you can do what you want" - Moeshe Feldenkrais, The Feldenkrais Method.® 'Awareness Through Movement' a somatic movement practice, is very helpful in becoming more aware of habitual ways of moving that may be contributing to pain and discomfort in your body. Dr.Feldenkrais believed habitual movements predisposed injury and could lead to movement problems, pain, or overall patterns of dysfunction. During the lesson the use of non-habitual ways of moving and directed attention can help to discover and let go of limiting patterns of movement, behaviour, thinking and feeling. In order to learn what you do it is important that your movements are smaller than you are able to do, and slow enough for your nervous system and brain to pay attention, otherwise you will move in your habitual manner. Over time, these smaller slower movements allow us to sense how we might be working harder than we need to in performing an action, leading to patterns of unnecessary muscular tension and pain. Through our own awareness and learnings lies the choice for alternative movements that are easier, more comfortable and maybe even pleasant. Whether you are suffering from Back, neck, sciatic or shoulder pain, recovering from an injury or a stroke or you simply want to improve your range of movement or your comfort in sitting in Mediation or at work, then please come along and try a class Group classes are offered lying on the floor and are suitable for all ages and abilities.

Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in Western World and America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility. Variations of Hatha Flow with concentration of different areas of fitness are included on our schedule eg Fitness Flow, Fitness & Flexibility, Yoga for Sports and Yoga for Men. Our Beginners Yoga Classes are Hatha unless otherwise stated.
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 movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred to as Vinyasa Flow or just Flow. Expect to move and breathe smoothly from one pose to another. Your class will most likely include Sun Salutations. Vinyasa yoga is almost like a dance with synchronized breath and movements. The style and sequence will vary depending on the teacher.
This dynamic, physically demanding practice synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga yoga, with it's many vinyasas, is great for building core strength and toning the body. Prepare to sweat as you briskly move through a set sequences. This form of yoga is intensely physical and athletic. Ashtanga yogis practice a prescribed set of asanas, channel energy through the body using bandhas (locks), and concentrate on singular points using drishti (gaze) in (postures) asanas.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with (postures) asanas, that are held for longer periods of time. For beginners, it may range from 45 seconds to two minutes for more advanced practitioners they may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.
An uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices, Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning "truth is my identity." The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.
