A lighter less vigorous vinyasa flow class described above. This is a gentle version of vinyasa flow class, which links breath with body movement. It leads the blood and lymph to flow fluidly throughout the whole body. It is a great way to relax your mind and body and to finish your day without fatigue.

Stretch and Lengthen
Starting with warming up your body, we focus on stretching our body for flexibility, and to release the tension from your body and mind. This class is great after work, exercise or diving and helps to calm and restore the body and mind for the next day.
Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga, Yin and Yang, into one practice, bringing together the benefits of passively holding poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses held for 2-10 minutes supported by props. The poses apply moderate stress to the deep connective tissues of the body with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints, improving flexibility and releasing blockages in the energetic body. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal interconnection. Breath focus & body awareness are heightened as you work into a meditative state. This is a great compliment to the more vigorous classes.
Starts with a short introduction about Yoga of how it works on your body and mind, then we familiarize the postures. This class is for beginners, but also for those who want to check their posture and relearn the basic ideas of Yoga.
Based on traditional Ashtanga Yoga, as introduced by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, this class will lead students through full and adapted variations of the Ashtanga Primary Series. The Ashtanga primary series, or yoga chikitsa, works to heal the body of the damage of normal living through a variety of postures targeting core strength, shoulder, hip and hamstring flexibility, and joint mobility with realignment. Postures are linked together with dynamic breathing and vinyasa. Appropriate for beginners as well as regular practitioners, modifications for poses depending on individual ability will be offered, and props for support are available.
The class will start with gentle warm-up techniques which include stretching, and body movement. These help to break down inhibitions and develop childlike playfulness. Breathing exercises are used to prepare the lungs for laughter, followed by a series of “laughter exercises” that combine the method of acting and visualisation techniques with playfulness. These exercises, combined with the social dynamics of group, lead to prolong and hearty unconditional laughter. Laughter exercises are interspersed with breathing exercise.
