In a Vinyasa class we practice connecting each posture to our breath and one posture to another in a seamless flow. This particular style of yoga has more cardiovascular demands on the body and requires greater breathing control, as each asana (posture) is either linked to your inhale or your exhale.
The pace is fast and works up a good sweat. It is a great go-to practice to increase stamina, endurance as well as burn body fat. It will increase blood flow and help improve cardiovascular issues in the body. It is also a great practice for those suffering from anxiety.
In each class, curated musical soundtracks create a fun, rhythmic and dynamic safe space. One is able to keep pushing past their comfort zone when accompanied with the energetic boost of the healing powers of music.
Join Nyamwathi, a deeply intuitive healer & teacher, who always reads the energy of the room and adjusts the sequences according to the energy levels and needs of her students.
Hatha yoga allows us to delve deeply into the structural alignment, purpose and benefit of each asana (posture) chosen.
We shall explore a wide variety of postures sequenced to work on one’s muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons as well as the internal organs.
Poses are held anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, allowing us to really get into a detailed understanding and mastery of the pose.
Each class highlights the details of proper alignment with emphasis on the correct internal ‘feel’ of each asana, increasing body-mind control, awareness, breath, focus and muscle tone.
Yin yoga is a hybrid of a Pure Hatha practice with Traditional Chinese Medicine. The postures are designed to work with the body’s meridians and move the flow of chi (energy) releasing and clearing any energy blocks.
Each seated or reclined posture is held for 2 - 7 minutes allowing for deep impact targeting the body’s connective tissue known as the fascia.
Throughout the session we are tapping into the para-sympathetic nervous system, which is the access point for cell regeneration, healing and stress-release.
We are also creating space to notice one’s inner self-talk, retraining negative thought patterns with more uplifting positive ones, releasing the urge to control and allowing surrender and trust.
Restorative yoga is an incredible way of helping the body and mind repair and heal. We activate the para-sympathetic system / relaxation response balancing the entire nervous system and set up the body for deep healing, growth and repair.
This practice is a combination of Hatha, Iyengar and Yin yoga styles, designed to target and alleviate specific health concerns from the mind and body.
These range from body injuries, chronic pain to lifestyle dis-eases such as high blood pressure, diabetes to mental dis-eases such as anxiety etc. A very gentle practice, with long passive holds, aided by props to allowing one to be in restorative asana for up to 10 minutes per posture.
