ASHTANGA YO‍‍‍GA

Ashtanga is a physically demanding type of yoga that teaches you to link every movement to a breath. In this kind of class you’ll always do the same poses in the same order & will certainly break a sweat. Not suitable for absolute beginners.

HATHA YOGA

Hatha is a generic term that encompasses any type of yoga involving physical postures. The majority of yoga taught in the western world is Hatha & classes usually comprise of a gentle set of postures (asanas) aimed at promoting relaxation & loosening the body. It is best suited to those who want to ease themselves into yoga fitness & begin to understand the connection between the mind & body.

IYENGAR YOGA

Within Iyengar yoga, a lot of emphasis is placed on correctly aligning the body during every pose, so it requires concentration & attention to detail. Props are often used to better enable you to hold the exact position. In general, it isn’t overly physically demanding but can be quite mentally taxing as you strive to perfect each asana. Due to the slow & careful nature of this style, it’s a great choice for anyone with limited ability as a result of an injury or health condition.

KUNDALINI YOGA

Concentrates on the release of energy found at the base of the spine. The practice is designed to awaken the Kundalini by focusing on meditation, pranayama, asana & chanting, resulting in deep meditation, enlightenment & bliss.

MEDITATION + PRANAYAMA + NIDRA

Meditation refers to a broad variety of practices Those include techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy (life force) & develop compassion, love, patience, generosity & forgiveness. Nidra uses sound as the driving force behind the meditation – the sound waves are used to alter students’ state of consciousness. Pranayama emphasizes on breath control.

RESTORATIVE YOGA + YIN YOGA

If you’re after peace & relaxation, these are for you. Sessions involve holding asanas for three to five minutes, which increases circulation in the joints & improves flexibility. Props are used to make it a comfortable & calming practice. Restorative yoga focuses on grounding and compression whilst Yin is about opening and release.

SCARAVELLI YOGA

Based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, Scaravelli yoga is an anatomically intelligent, slow approach to practising hatha yoga. Placing emphasis on the breath, spine & ground. Postures are used to deepen awareness & sensitivity to safely explore a student’s range & improve quality of movement.

VINYASA YOGA - FLOW YOGA

This style involves mastering smooth transitions from posture to posture & is similar in intensity to Ashtanga yoga. One of the main differences between the two is that Vinyasa doesn’t follow a strict series of poses & it’s unlikely that any two classes will ever be the same. This is a good type of yoga for people who want to challenge their bodies but are prone to boredom & want to keep things interesting.

WARM YOGA

This is similar to Bikram yoga but the asanas are not the same. As the name suggests, the room will be heated & you’ll be sweltering as you work your way through the session. Warm yoga might be better for those looking for a slightly more relaxed environment than that of Bikram.
