A place for like minded people to come together and study the art of meditation. Meditation is an art form and like any skill, time is needed to gain mastery. The untrained mind is said to be like a naughty monkey, swinging from tree to tree; but with a bit of skill and a whole lot of patience the mind will begin to settle and insight will grow. Developing a broad, non-judgemental continuous awareness, learning how to work skilfully with difficult emotions and developing positive mind states such as compassion and equanimity.

Wednesdays 1:45 to 2:45pm
In our busy day to day lives, we rarely get time to simply stop, breath and spend time with only ourselves. In yin yoga that is exactly what we are given the opportunity to do. Through a series of long held deep stretches, and a strong focus on the breath we are given the chance to draw our attention inwards and focus completely on ourselves in the present moment. Through the practice of yin yoga we are able to develop a heightened awareness of the body, breath and mind, while also physically increasing our range of movement. This class is suitable for people of all fitness levels and has a strong emphasis on the meditative side of yoga.

Fridays 9:45 to 11am
Wednesdays 6 to 7:15pm
A simple movement method that targets chronically tight muscles and is regarded as the missing link in long term muscular pain management. This mindful practice which is suitable for all abilities, especially those with limited range of movement, re-establishes the brain/muscle connection and helps to re-set (relax) muscle length. A typical class focuses first on relaxing the muscles in the centre of the body, (low back, waist and abdomen), which when tight, affects the peripheral parts (neck, head, shoulders, arms, hips and legs).
Types of Yoga & Other Practices
Vinyasa classes include instruction on breath, movement and alignment building into variations of sun salutation, standing and balancing poses, sequencing postures into a flowing dance (vinyasa). Closing with a mixture of floor poses, inversions and deep relaxation.
Jivamukti is a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice, combining a vigorous hatha yoga, vinyasa-based physical style with adherence to five central tenets: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (nonviolence, non-harming), nāda (music), and dhyana (meditation).
These gentle classes focuses on improving movement, not on postures or making shapes with the body.
Beginning with Somatics to unwind tension from the centre of the body and Rhythmic Movements to gently energise and finally, Therapeutic Yoga to improve range of movement at the spine, shoulders and hips. This combination of Intelligent Movement creates more ease and joy, less tension, strain and pain. Leaving you with a sense of feeling lighter, mentally, physically and emotionally.
These classes are suitable for all abilities including pregnancy (from 14 weeks).
The pace of life is fast and our minds move fast as well, leading to over stimulation of the nervous system. This can result in feeling easily overwhelmed and tired with your mind racing leading to illness and health problems. Restorative yoga is a completely supported yoga practice, there is no muscular contraction involved inviting the body to be gently relaxed and stretched, gently removing tension. You use bolster cushions, blankets and blocks to hold you in floor based postures (we provide all the equipment except the blanket).
Practicing restorative Yoga is a great help to anyone who is chronically ill, or recovering from injuries. It's also great for anyone to enjoy some rest and relaxation of mind and body and bring more balance into their lives.
Yoga Nidra is a wonderful practice, it requires nothing of you, but to lie down, get comfortable and be still. It is beneficial for everyone and can be done at the end of physical movement or your yoga practice or as a stand alone experience, typically lasting for 20 to 45 minutes.
Yoga Nidra differs from meditation, where your mind stays focused allowing for thoughts, emotions and images to come and go. This is known as the Waking state. Yoga Nidra moves past the chatter of the Waking state and the fantasy of the Dreaming state, to go into Deep Sleep, yet remaining awake.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice, combining alert awareness with full relaxation, connecting with your deep consciousness, whilst healing the body.
