Wednesdays: Rise & Shine Yoga Flow

6.30am - 7.15am

A great way to start the day. Rise and Shine Yoga Flow is your 'Bread and butter' Yoga that is focused on waking up the body and setting you up for the day ahead, making you feel energized and focused.

Early morning is said to be the best time of day to exercise because it gets rid of morning muscle stiffness, allows you to let go of yesterday's stress, gets your breathing on track, releases "Happy Hormones", takes care of your digestive system and boosts your metabolism, and it is also time for yourself.

Open and very beginner-friendly.

Wednesdays: Yin Yoga

12pm - 1pm

While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets your

deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones.

It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and

tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body.

Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you

would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch

and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to

breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.

The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies

and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy)

that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we’re opening up any blockages

and releasing that energy to flow freely. So, yin yoga has a very similar effect on our energies as acupuncture treatment. By holding the various poses, a yin yoga sequence can help restore the healthy flow of Qi in our bodies.

Open and very beginner-friendly. No induction is needed!

Scared of Yoga?

Do you like the idea of Yoga, but are scared of trying out a class?

Do you feel inflexible and awkward compared to others?

Do you feel too old? Are you struggling with your balance or

have injuries? Do you fear that you cannot quieten your mind?

FEAR NO MORE, then YOGA is for you. The benefits of yoga by far outweigh your concerns. Your fears are only natural. When you think of yoga you probably see images of slim, extremely attractive, and young people in fashionable lycra, contorted in impossible pretzel-like positions, whilst meditating and achieving blissfulness.

In reality, Yoga is non-competitive, which is a concept that can be tough to swallow, because we come from a competitive culture. The point is, it’s easy to look at the people in a yoga class and feel intimidated, but that doesn’t help anyone. In competing with others, we are robbing ourselves from enjoying the moment and the journey that we all take in our own way. Very few of us are dancers or gymnasts, who are some of the most flexible people, nor do we need to be in order to manage our day-to-day lives. Yoga increases flexibility in body and mind by giving us the opportunity to slow down, listen to our physical and mental response to each pose, and determine how fast and far we wish to grow in our flexibility. Yoga isn’t about the perfect position or being able to do the latest Instagram pretzel pose. Yoga is about helping you touch your toes and enjoy the journey there. Your teacher Steve Rouse has got a hip replacement since 2013, and having been a professional dancer he has a lifetime of experience in bodywork and movement. Therefore, he is extremely skilled and interested in finding suitable adaptions for yoga poses to help you enjoy and make the most out of your yoga journey. Classes are small with maximum individual attention for each student, so you will feel safe and relaxed.

Cost and Structure:

 

For Yoga, you join a small group class of no more than eight students.

First, each new student does ONE introductory one-to-one assessment session (30 -45min), costing £20.

(In this we cover a brief health screen, individual posture assessment and have a look at any physical restrictions that we need to be aware of to make you comfortable (bad knees, hips, bad back, overweight, etc, and make sure you know how to engage your core so you won't come out of class with back pain). There is no induction needed for Yin Yoga because of it's very gentle nature.

Then the classes are booked and paid for in advance in BLOCKS of between 6 to 9 weeks, (depending on the calendar). Each session costs £ 7.00 per 45-minute class, and £8 per 60 - 75 minute class, so a block of 8 sessions for a 60-minute class, for example, will cost £ 64.00.

However, if you are just starting with us, you can start partway through a block and just pay from when you start. Thereafter the class blocks are always paid in full. If you have to miss one of your classes, it is usually possible to catch up in another slot, in any of our classes on the timetable, by arrangement, but only during the current block. (However, if this is not possible, this concession is to be regarded as a courtesy, not a right).
