Classes are instructed by experienced teachers Dory Walker & Rory Viggers
Classes are inspired by our study of classical Hatha yoga in disciplines that include Dona Holleman's Centered Yoga system, Iyengar, Sivananda, Satyananda, Krishnamacharya, and Scaravelli. Hatha yoga focuses on the physical (asana) and pranayama (breath work) aspects of yoga. Hatha yoga can be powerful, gentle, dynamic and restorative. It can be practiced in many forms including vinyasa, mala and holding postures for a longer period. We are inspired by a broad range of practices which is reflected in the classes.
Classes includes Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), and guided relaxation. Standing, inverted, forward bends, back-bends, sitting, balances and twistings are all taught. Each week there is a different focus. Working with gravity, anatomical precision and alignment, 'not doing', hara (energy centre), intension, universal forces, and total awareness, students are encouraged to uncover their own true posture.
