This class is a Vinyasa style class. Vinyasa is the connection of breath and movement, and during this class, we will be doing some breath work (Pranayama) and moving into certain postures (asana). The asana’s will vary each class and is suitable for all levels.
STUDIO SET 60
This is a 60 minute set sequence that allows beginners to become familiar with the practice, allowing you to tune into the breath and also concentrate on getting their foundations and alignment correct.
Regular practitioners can also use this practice to focus on alignment and connect to breath without thinking about what’s coming next. Each teacher will teach the same set of asana’s but maybe adding their own personal touch. It's advised that you don't eat 2-3hrs before class as pranayama is best done on an empty stomach.
Exactly what it says on the tin, its hot and its yoga, expect to get sweaty. This vinyasa style class is our most popular class.
This is a 90 minute class will allow us to really explore breath work, pranayama and really go deep into both our breath work and physical practice. A more restorative or yin like ending to the class will allow us to leave nice and relaxed. It's advised that you don't eat 2-3hrs before class as pranayama is best done on an empty stomach.
A 75 minute (Tuesday) and a 60 minute (Thursday) class focusing on a set series of postures including sun salutations, a standing sequence, a seated sequence and a finishing sequence.
A vinyasa flow, centered around the 4 basic elements, fire, air, earth and water. In Mandala Flow yoga we move in circles and spirals around the mat, stimulating both sides of the brain and accessing parts of the body and mind that we may not perhaps access when we move in a purely linear way. Each class focuses on an element, a chakra or a particular group of muscles, using rhythmic pulsations and repetition to encourage the body to open and go a little bit further with each rotation.
Rocket Yoga is an Ashtanga Yoga System because we study our self through breath, bandha and dristi…but this practice can be deeper than the traditional Ashtanga Yoga practice itself! Larry Schultz combined first, second and third series of Ashtanga Yoga and sequenced the poses around the joints of the body. The Rocket sequence encourages play and offers modifications of traditional poses. The Rocket practice encourages a smooth unbroken rhythm of breath and movement, and as it may appear to be a very physical practice it is actually leading us on a path of self-realization. The Rocket, as the name indicates, gets you there faster.
