Yoga is NOT a competition. It is NOT about posting selfies of difficult poses in exotic locations (although obviously there’s nothing wrong with that). It is NOT just for young, bendy people with so-called ‘perfect’ bodies. It is NOT just for women.
Yoga is still evolving after thousands of years. Inevitably, it has an abundance of different meanings for different people; and for each of our teachers here at The Yoga Bar. At its core, we believe is it about improving mental and physical wellbeing through sequences of postures and breathing.
Practice the fundamentals of yoga. Ideal if you are a first timer, rediscovering yoga, or an experienced yogi wanting to address bad habits!
A dynamic flowing (vinyasa-based) practice through sequences linked to breath, with energy and strength. Expect your heart to beat and your skin to glow.
A slower (but not necessarily less strong), explorative flowing (vinyasa-based) practice, to enhance body and mind awareness.
A more static (hatha based) and slower (but not necessarily less strong), explorative practice, to enhance body and mind awareness.
Based on Chinese medicine, passive postures are held for to release deep muscle tissue. Excellent for flexibility, the nervous system and to counterbalance more energetic ‘flow’ (or ‘Yang’) classes.
Enjoy 30 minutes of fiery ‘Yang’ (or power) flow to build heat in the body; but also melt deeply into 30 minutes of Yin. The best of both!
A relaxing practice which uses props to support longer, deeper postures and nurture a healthy body and mind.
Counteract the high energy & stress of the city life with a practice focussed on relieving the mind and releasing tension in the body. A slower flow (as opposed to the faster-paced vinyasa sequences) and includes longer yin holds and restorative rest. Movements are mindful & fluid to nurture deep strength, mobility & balance within the body.
A healing dynamic practice, following a set sequence to build strength, stamina and discipline. The practice is emphasized on the breath, linking movements together for a continuous, powerful class.
Designed to gently encourage you to progress your flow (vinyasa-based) practice. There are plenty of options for each pose, so don’t be put off if you’re still relatively new to yoga!
A workshop-style class where yoga asana are broken down to facilitate a deeper understanding of one’s individual anatomy and how the poses we do on the mat can have a wonderful impact on the things you enjoy to do in your life. As a group we explore both new and traditional ways of movement, breath and mindfulness, with an aim to give you all the tools you need to facilitate healthy range of movement, functional strength, and a mind that can be your biggest cheerleader.
Begin your day with this morning yoga class (to suit all levels) and feel the difference in your frame of mind and focus. We tailor our morning class to the energy of the group on each particular day: more dynamic if people are lively and want to feel refreshed and ready to go; and more mindful if students are still a little sleepy!
From 4th January, we will be offering weekly pregnancy yoga classes, rather than a course. Simply purchase a pricing option as normal and book in when you want to attend.
We offer courses for teens, and are passionate about introducing them to yoga and all of the many benefits.
