Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa Flow: Happy, Healthy, Balanced, Whole

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Level: 0
Focus: Happy, Healthy Balanced, Whole
Props: Block and belt
As we all acclimatise to a new way of living and working, these new routines (or lack of old ones!) can take their toll on the body and our overall sense of well being. So think of this sequence as a grand tour of the body, taking a little time to release tension from shoulders & hips, to build a little heat to burn off thoughts, to find peace in being grounded and to use the breath to create space and let go.

£2.50

Vinyasa Flow: Balance and Fire

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Level: 0
Focus: Balance
Props: Block and belt
Fire up your core and find your balance.  Each day our practice is different and serves a different purpose; in this session we will build fire to burn the thoughts, letting the emotions rise so we can let them go and replace them with soothing breath.  We will stay grounded and find stability in some standing balances and we will build strength and flexibility preparing us to play with some fun arm balances (always optional, of course!)

Vinyasa Flow: Free your Front Body!


Style:
Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Level: Open-level
Focus: Backbends
Props: Block and belt
I've certainly been feeling the effects of more laptop time since yoga went digital! Hunching over a laptop leads to over-stretched back muscles and a rounding in the chest and a literal pain in the neck! So we will release tension in the shoulders, chest and quads as we prepare for gradually deeper back bends to strengthen the back, create space all along the front of the body and energise the mind 🙂

£2.50

Vinyasa Flow: Core (a boatload!)

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Level: 0
Focus: Core
Props: Block and belt
We will sail the waves of thoughts, feelings and emotions with a core focus and a boatload of navasana! We will hold a little longer in some familiar favourites to remind ourselves that we are stronger than we may think. Getting strong often includes uncomfortable and challenging moments. And it's that ability to move past that initial reaction of "this is hard, I dont want to do this" and move into that deeper place where you know you have what it takes.  It's just getting mind to hush...We will make our breath louder than our thoughts. We will find the balance between strength and surrender with some lovely supine counterposes. And we will know that all we need to do is show up.

Vinyasa Flow: Up the Ante - Bakasana!

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Arm Balance
Props: Block and belt
You have probably already realised I love an arm balance! I love the combination of strength, exhilaration and calm you feel as you teeter on the brink of balance... taking a chance and upping the ante is all part of the beautiful process of yoga. Yes, you will most likely fall the first time you attempt something challenging and new - but to show-up and and try is more important than any "achievement" of the posture. Having the courage to take a risk, to accept that everything is in constant motion, to learn to expose yourself to this mini "stress" in a manageable environment can teach us wonderful lessons about ourselves and our reactions. Embracing this healthy risk-taking is where we learn how to face resistance, where we learn to adapt and cope and where we can find true security.

£2.50

Vinyasa Flow: Rest your Wrists!


Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Core and legs
Props: Block

Rest your wrists: being grateful for all the wonderful strength that our wrists help us build with planks, chaturangas and down-ward dogs...but sometimes our hard-working wrists need a rest! So tonight we'll flow through a dynamic sequence powering up the legs and switch up the vinyasa's with a smattering of core and back bends ...and I promise some lovely long-hold hip openers to finish 😁 x

£2.50

Vinyasa Flow: Hanumanasana

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Hamstrings, quads, hip flexors
Props: Blocks, bolster, blankets

Named after the Monkey God Hanuman who leapt from the southern point of India to Sri Lanka, this week we will set a slow and steady pace to prepare the hips and hamstrings to work towards (yes, towards...) hanumanasana a.k.a. frontal splits! This pose is challenging but can also be fun when we let go of the little voice pushing us to achieve; there will be lots of prep and variations offered throughout so you can find the variation to suit you. Dedication and practise will allow the posture to unfurl so trust your body will take you to wherever it needs to be and enjoy the monkey leap!

£2.50

Vinyasa Flow: Lateral Thinking

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Side body
Props: Block
Long hours of sitting in one position can leave us longing for some lovely stretches to release tension. In our day-to-day activities we probably don't side stretch much at all. And even in some styles of yoga, such as Ashtanga, there are very few pure side-stretches. But by bending sideways we alternately stretch and contract the lateral structures of the torso which stretches the intercostal muscles and releases tension from in between the ribs and along the spine. And this means extra space around the rib cage for lovely, long, uninhibited deep breaths. And with deep breaths comes deep contentment as we feel our whole body smile.

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Parighasana Flow - Don't be a square be a triangle!

 

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Arm Balance
Props: Block and belt
We will explore lots of triangle-shaped poses including parighasana (gate pose) and trikonasana (triangle pose) to stretch the adductors (inner thighs) and strengthen and lengthen the lateral flexors of the spine (including the internal and external obliques), muscles that are integral to functional core strength. Side bending is also a great way to help you breathe more deeply...mmmmm 🥰

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Hips, Shoulders and Twists

 

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Arm Balance
Props: Block and belt
Twisting is a great way to boost circulation and detox the body but tightness in the hips and shoulders, the anchors for the spine, can limit our capacity to twist.  By focusing on releasing tension in the shoulders and hips we can improve the mobility of the spine and enjoy a deep, twisted release =)

 

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Balance through transitions

 

Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Arm Balance
Props: Block and belt
Find your balance...it's okay to wobble! That is what balance is, dealing with the constant fluctuations in the body. You learn more every time you fall! Surrender to the process and allow yourself to experience joy and happiness in the present moment. Dive beneath the fluctuations and discover a place of peace and love; knowing this stable centre within yourself is always there, making you strong enough to deal with any situation so when life throws you challenges, you can drop down deep into this eternal place of peace.

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Express your Extrovert


Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Back bends
Props: Block

Express your extrovert: In this slow flow we will explore “extroverted” back-bending poses, which can balance our tendency to curl in on ourselves when we feel depressed or overwhelmed. These chest-openers provide a great antidote to “office slump,” while freeing the lungs and opening the heart to experience feelings of loyalty, love, and persistence...like the character traits of our familiar (upward-facing) dog companion.

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Plankety Plank


Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus: Core and Arms
Props: Block

In this class we play with different variations of plank and build up some heat and arm strength all the while focussing on our smooth supportive flowing breath, reminding ourselves that these challenges aren't permanent. And finishing with a well-deserved long savasana 🙂

 

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Twist it Out


Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus:  Twists
Props: Block

Wring out tension and cultivate strength and steadiness while remaining focused and flexible; traits needed for both this sequence and the twists and turns of this journey called life! In this sequence we will enjoy a variety of standing heat-building twists before seated and supine twists to cool the body before savasana x

£2.50

Vinyasa (Slow) Flow: Long and Low


Style: Vinyasa Flow
Length:  60 minutes
Focus:  Hamstrings and Hips
Props: Block & Belt

Staying grounded with some juicy hamstring and hip stretches close to the mat. With the option to gradually go deeper as we move through the sequence, if it feels right for you. These stretches are great for runners, cyclists or anyone who sits in a chair for long durations!
