Suggested equipment – a yoga mat, and a blanket (3 or more blankets for the Restorative and Yoga Nidra classes). It’s not essential, but if you have your own props such as a bolster, yoga blocks, eye-pillow, cushions – great!

YES, it’s totally fine if you have no Yoga experience!

Class descriptions

YOGA

Slow mindful movement from the Hatha Yoga tradition and somatic movement, including Asana (the physical yoga postures) as well as Pranayama (Yogic breath practices), Mudra (gestures), Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation), and Meditation practices.

With regards to the physical yoga practices, the class is a combination of slow mindful movement to warm and open, gentle stretching poses, strengthening practices, balancing practices, as well as Restorative Yoga for stillness and rest.   

There are many options provided each class, and you will be encouraged to practice in a way that is most suitable and kind for yourself.

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

This class is facilitated in a Trauma-informed way.

YOGA + Yoga NIDRA meditation

Yoga Nidra, an ancient Yogic practice, which translates as ‘Yogic Sleep’, is a way of bringing body and mind and all levels of one’s being back to equilibrium, to one’s natural state of harmony.

With regards to the physical yoga practices, the class is a combination of slow mindful movement to warm and open, gentle stretching, strengthening practices, balancing practices, as well as Restorative Yoga.

There are many options and variations provided, and you will be encouraged to practice in a way that is most suitable and kind for yourself.

In class you will practice mindfulness and develop a deeper awareness of your breath.

Perhaps you have been experiencing stress, tension, or anxiety, or mental-health problems, and you wish to learn techniques to calm your body and mind, or to find more balance with emotions.

Yoga may also help you with recovery from illness or injury, as relaxing the body and quieting thoughts and emotions, and quieting all levels of one’s being can be a powerful support to the healing process.

This class is facilitated in a trauma-informed way.

RESTORATIVE YOGA & MEDITATION

Restorative Yoga is a calming and meditative practice. It is about stillness, and quiet, and turning the senses within. The practice of Restorative Yoga provides space for your body and mind to return to balance. Gently release tension, and allow a softening to calm your nervous system.  With the use of Yoga bolsters, blankets, and other yoga props, your body will be supported to find a place of comfort and ease.

The poses in Restorative Yoga are held for a length of time, allowing for rest and quiet within present moment awareness.

If you love the final resting pose in most general yoga classes, Shavasana, you will love the practice of Restorative Yoga. If you have a busy life and you crave stillness and quiet, then this practice is ideal for you.

Also wonderful for those healing from injury, illness, stress or anxiety. Excellent as ‘self care’.

This class is facilitated in a trauma-informed way.
