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!
Yin is based on Chinese medicine, passive postures are held for to release deep muscle tissue.
Restorative is a relaxing practice which uses props to support longer, deeper postures and nurture a healthy body and mind.
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!
