Levels of practice listed are simply a guide – level 3 might denote more complexity of poses within the class structure but that doesn’t necessarily equate to a more ‘advanced’ practice!

The asana practice is to allow us to deepen our awareness not just move into deeper poses…..

VINYASA FLOW – vinyasa means “to place in a meaningful way” and each class is a kramically structured sequence of asanas incorporating meditation, pranayama and/or kriya and the asana practice itself (the physical poses) – all set to an eclectic range of music. These classes have a strong emphasis based on bandha, core strength, the breath and alignment – and as the focus is on flow – the awareness of the transitions in and out of the asanas (or poses) is as important as awareness in the asanas themselves. Expect the first part of the class to be fairly dynamic before moving into longer sustained poses, to release tension, restriction and increase flexibility – unwinding mind and body in unison. I give plenty of alignment cues and somatic referencing throughout your practice before finishing with relaxation and a closing meditation. DEEP SLOW VINYASA FLOW  is simply slower in the flow – but not necessarily easier ! It is constantly guiding your awareness inwards to a deep and meditative flow – it is suitable for all levels of practice except complete beginners (level 2-3)

FUNCTIONAL FLOW – STRENGTH AND SERENITY A slower paced hatha style/slow flow class suitable for beginners and improvers and those looking for something with greater focus on alignment and integrity within individual poses – before progressing on to more advanced flow classes at a later stage as their practice develops if they wish. As such this a great class for those transitioning from traditional Hatha into more flow based classes too. There is more verbal instruction/explanation with reference to the objectives and activation within individual poses to facilitate greater understanding. The class will give each individual time to explore the asana to hone their awareness and the opportunity to somatically experience the concept of sthira and sukha – strength and ease – for functional efficiency and balance within the body and mind. It is also a great way to explore any asymmetry and work to facilitate balance between left and right, strength and flexibility, space and stability – focusing on the core and breath as the foundation of awareness. It is open to all levels including beginners (level 1-2)

FOUNDATIONS OF FLOW This is suitable for complete beginners as it is an entry level class. Much more instruction and explanation is given and please note that many students do all 3 levels of practice to deepen their awareness, as the progression is INWARDS.

Y12SR is for anyone affected by addiction. The 12-step recovery model, created in 1939, is the most well-known and pervasive addiction/recovery programme in the world with millions of practitioners internationally. In a word, the characteristics and effects of addiction could easily be described as separation. Addictive behaviours separate and disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more. Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga and its practices teach the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world. The 12 step programme approaches addiction at a cognitive level, yoga includes a somatic approach. The combining of the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual disease that it is. Y12SR recognizes that yoga and its practices are a part of a holistic recovery programme and rather than a replacement, it provides adjunct tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction. The 90 minute weekly class is open to anyone affected by addiction – this is especially aimed at those individuals in the “aftercare” phase of their treatment, who are looking to combine the cognitive side of their programme with a physical yoga (asana) practice to consolidate and enhance the efficacy of each to maintain awareness, mindfulness and balance.

Recovery is a process, not an event, and Y12SR can play a large part in this.

Each class will follow a meeting/reading and physical practice format. No prior experience of yoga is necessary.
