Benefits of Yoga
Never tried yoga before? Yoga is more than just a physical practice, it helps to bring balance to the body and mind. Some of the many benefits of yoga include:
- Relaxing the mind
- Improving mood
- Increased mobility and strength
- Improving balance
- Increasing lung capacity
Styles of Yoga
We offer various styles of yoga depending on the time of day, and catering students preference. Types of yoga include:
Vinyasa Yoga: A more dynamic and strengthening style in which students flow from one shape directly into the next. The breath is used as a guide for this flow (traditionally one breath, one movement). Vinyasa is a more vigorous style of yoga although the pace and the intensity of the poses can vary.
Hatha: A slower, strengthening style of yoga practice where students hold shapes for slightly longer (3 to 8 breaths), and will be seated, standing on the belly or lying on their back.
Yin & Restorative Yoga: A therapeutic style of yoga, where gentle yoga postures are held for longer time (3-7 minutes), to bring the nervous system to rest, and allow the stretches to get to the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. Both styles emphasize the health of the soft tissues, yin yoga encouraging you to “meet your edge” and restorative yoga bringing more comfort.
Yoga Nidra: A lying down meditation that allows the body to go into a deep relaxation state where we rest, digest, and rejuvenate.
