Class descriptions

 

HATHA YOGA

Hatha means Sun (Ha-) and Moon (Tha). Hatha yoga includes Asana (the physical yoga postures) as well as many other Yogic practices including Pranayma (Yogic breathing), Mudra (gestures), Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation), and Meditation practices.

With regards to the physical yoga postures and practices, the class is a combination of both gentle warming practices as well as challenging practices which are suitable for the experience level within the class. Many options are also provided for individuals.

Classes are breath-centred and encourage mindfulness and present moment awareness.

HATHA with YOGA NIDRA

This class is designed with gentleness, restoration, relaxation and mindfulness in mind. Yoga Nidra is an ancient Yogic practice, which translates as ‘Yogic Sleep’.

We practice Hatha Yoga for first half of class, then a deep relaxation practice lying in Shavasana (supine) for 30 minutes, and finishing with Meditation.

There are many options to assist those with injuries or medical conditions. For example the relaxation practice can be done sitting rather than lying down, or the seated meditation practice can be done lying down. Also the Hatha practice can be modified for the individual needs of the student. There are Yoga bolsters and other props that can be used to assist each student to be comfortable.

If you are learning to meditate or wish to deepen your meditation practice, this class is ideal for you, as the Yoga Nidra (relaxation) practice is deeply relaxing for the body and has a flow-on effect to bring quiet to the mind and emotions.

It’s also a perfect class for people experiencing stress, tension, or anxiety, and those wishing to learn techniques to calm body and mind.

This class can also help people recovering from illness or injury, as relaxing the body and quieting thoughts and emotions can greatly assist the healing process.

PRENATAL / PREGNANCY YOGA

Prenatal Yoga classes are designed especially for pregnant women from 12 weeks of pregnancy onwards. The class is suitable for brand new beginners, as well as those experienced in Yoga. Not only are all Yogic practices 100% prenatal-friendly, the focus is especially on the practices that will assist students throughout pregnancy.

Yoga practice is ideal during pregnancy – relaxation, flexibility and strength, in a very gentle way.

Prenatal yoga has so many benefits ….
– helping to ease many common physical discomforts
– Improving posture and strengthening the body
– Learning to relax fully and releasing tension in the body
– Gain more breath and body awareness
– Gain a sense of inner-strength and peace
– Embracing your pregnancy and welcoming your baby

Yoga practice can help you to feel more harmonious with your life and more ‘centred’ as you become more in touch with your emotions.

Pregnancy is such a special time of life…and such a fleeting moment of life….a time to really celebrate life.

I loved attending prenatal yoga during both my pregnancies. It was so beneficial, not only to my physical health but also to my spiritual and emotional wellbeing. Although my labour didn’t go ‘as planned’ (as many labours don’t), the prenatal yoga classes gave me the skills and ability to remain calm and relaxed during my emergency cesarean. Karen is a wonderful and very experienced yoga teacher who tailors her yoga practice to that of every one of her student’s ability. Yoga classes are conducted in a very relaxed environment and I would highly recommend pre-natal yoga with Karen.
