Yoga Class Timetable
Yin Hatha Fusion
Yoga is moving mindfulness. In this class, mindfulness teacher, Alison Keane teaches asana as a way of returning the wandering mind to the present moment, and away from mental stress. Postures are deep and long so that students can notice mental patterns, and also the benefits of physical opening, strengthening and release. The present- centredness acquired ‘on the mat’ in mindful yoga can then be tried out in everyday life!
Yin Style Yoga
Suitable for beginners, Yin yoga is a meditative yet somewhat intense yoga practice which targets the connective tissue such as ligaments, bones and joints predominantly in the hips, thighs and lower trunk through poses that are held for longer periods of time than a usual yang style yoga class.
Ha and tha mean sun and moon respectively. Hatha Yoga is a practice to unite the dynamic, energetic sun energies and quieter, reflective moon energies of the body and mind. All of the hatha yoga classes combine a mix of yoga postures, conscious breathing, and mindfulness under the guidance and instruction of the yoga teacher.
Based on classical Iyengar restorative yoga and mindfulness meditation, and drawing on Alison’s learnings in 2006 from American yoga educator, Judith Lasater, this session is filled with luxurious deep supported floor poses, instruction for calm abiding meditation and mindfulness, poetry, body awareness, and possibilities for insight and self- awareness. Complimentary green tea afterwards!
