The perfect balance for mind, body and spirit.

Half of the class is Yin Yoga which focuses on flexibility, mindfulness and softness. Yin aspects of yoga focus on the deeper, denser tissues of the body - the joints, bones and connective tissues. We hold poses for longer periods, releasing into them with mindful awareness of the sensations and thoughts which arise.

The other half of the class is Yang Yoga which focuses on strength, stamina and balance. Yang yoga is more of an active, dynamic flow of postures where the movements and breath are rhythmically connected. The poses and sequences will focus on the fitness of the muscles, skin, organs and blood.
