This is a dynamic form of yoga where the first part of the class gives the student a thorough work out, focussing on strengthening and stabilising (especially the core, through awareness of bandha), energising, heating and mobilising the whole body to gain the maximum benefits from the second part of the class. Here, the focus shifts to deeper poses held for longer duration to increase flexibility, to release tension and to work to correct imbalances due to excessive training, asymmetrical sports with l/r dominance, postural issues such as lordosis and scoliosis, past or present injuries and stress/anxiety/life style factors. Regular yoga practise will undoubtedly serve to improve your sense of overall well being, whatever your background or motivation for stepping on to the mat.
The aim of the practise is to experience integration of breath, body and mind….. and hopefully take this with you off of the mat, long after the class has finished…..into your training, your sport and your work and family life.
In my classes I seek to blend all the aspects that reflect the authenticity of the lineage of my own teachers – incorporating the energy, creativity and fluidity of a Vinyasa Flow practise within the framework of focus on precision and alignment drawn from Iyengar, the Ashtanga principles from Pattabhi Jois, and the compassionate, adaptable and bespoke approach to yoga tuition from Krishnamacharya.
Classes include meditation and visualisation, pranayama (breathing techniques for cleansing, heating, balancing, calming or energising – all aid focus and concentration), application of bandha (energy “locks” – essentially the use of deep core muscles for stabilising either part or the full length of the spine within asanas and especially the transitions between to enhance energy flow and improve overall postural integrity) and asana (the physical sequence of poses) with occasional hands on assists (corrections of alignment, myofascial release techniques and massage to maximise the benefits of the practise).
Everybody can practise yoga. Whatever your experience or background.
