The Foundation class is our base level offering. It's aimed towards students who are newer to yoga or those who would like to build on their basics. Foundational poses are instructed with attention to alignment and explanation of proper execution. Some pranayama and meditation may be incorporated to draw focus to the full spectrum of a yoga practice. Whether you are just beginning or deepening your practice, this class will challenge your needs and open your perspective.
Cultivation is intended to offer the opportunity for growth and requires some previous yoga experience. It is a beautiful way to explore your practice whilst being given options for more pose variations. There will be a focus on breath, more instruction for vinyasa flow and opportunity to explore and deepen your asana. The seed has been planted and this is where it grows!
Yin yoga is intermittently included on the regular schedule. Unlike an active practice, Yin aims to remove muscular contraction by offering passive instruction into poses. Each pose is held for a lengthy duration to address not only the deep connective tissues, but also provides a meditative space whilst these tissues slowly respond. The asana is all done on the floor with loads of props and supports to ensure that you release safely and within your own capacity. This passive practice is the perfect compliment to your regular active classes and will undoubtedly advance your practice as a whole.
This class is a beautifully balanced offering of active, vinyasa flow and passive, restorative yin yoga. It's designed to bring you into the strength and support of your body and then allows you to release into deep, non contractile holdings. Some previous experience with yoga is recommended.
