Vinyasa flow yoga - Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a series of smoothly flowing postures which are synchronised with the breath, creating a fluid form of yoga that becomes a graceful dance with spirit. It is a dynamic practice sometimes to the back drop of music that can be fast-paced and challenging at times so is known for its strengthening and toning qualities but more importantly, it helps focus the mind-body connection and invites you on a journey inward using movement and the meditative qualities of the breath as your guide. In Sanskrit ‘Vinyasa’ literally translates as ‘connection’ - so come and enjoy the connection between your breath and your body to experience your inner joy and leave you in a relaxed and meditative state.

 
Yin & Yang yoga – a candle lit evening class that begins with a strong vinyasa-based flow and then transitions in to a yin practice with longer, more restorative holds. Expect to build up heat, and balance it out by finding surrender in passive (yet challenging!) poses in which your body can relax and release to help you find the space to move deeper into the postures and bring your mind to stillness
