Yoga

We are a small personalised school giving individual attention and tuition to people seeking to

  • To stretch & relax the body
  • To centre & integrate the mind
  • To develop talents & self-understanding
  • To fit it all together

Yoga isn’t about over-stretching the physical body in a hot sweaty room.

Yoga is about conscious, deliberate unfolding of individual body capacities, exposing and transcending limitations and feeling the joy which arises beyond the pain and resistances.

Its ultimate aim is to consciously reconnect our sense of separate isolated individuality back to our Universal source.

We feel integrated and whole in this realisation. To intelligently do this we involve the four aspects of our being – body, mind, soul and spirit.

In our Yoga classes you receive ongoing individual tuition in every posture where required, fully supervised to help guide you into a deep balanced practice. You work at your own rate and feel the benefits of a consistent approach.

All levels of competence and ability are welcome; we offer beginner, intermediate and advanced.

All Yoga classes include an initial intention (sankalpa) to direct the mind, body postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), relaxation, and a short meditation.

For deeper Meditation instruction (dhyana) and samadhic contemplation, join the Meditation classes.

Beginner

These classes help to open ‘body awareness’, expose your limitations and resistances, show you where potential dangers lie in your technique, correct alignments, and begin to enhance flexibility. Knowing something as simple as where to put your feet changes everything, and we make sure you get the essentials from the beginning of your Yoga experience. All levels can benefit from Beginner classes; it’s a place to start, resume, and even finesse your practice.

Intermediate

Our intermediate level builds body articulation, generates more strength and flexibility, and helps dissolve blockages, shadows and resistances in your practice. As this is a stronger class we recommend understanding the fundamentals of the Beginner level before joining.

Advanced

A place to concentrate on refining your practice and having the teacher check your individual style and technique. Suited to people who have progressed confidently through the intermediate level. You may be invited to join the special Field Yoga class when you are clearly conscious of advanced Yoga disciplines.
