We're passionate about classical yoga
We teach a beautiful sequence of hatha yoga which has evolved naturally over thousands of years, Sivananda yoga. Unlike ashtanga vinyasa or Bikram, this method wasn't invented by any individual person - it has withstood the test of eons.
Traditional hatha yoga is all about raising prana, or energy. We vitalise the entire body with breathing, inversions and held stretching including twists, bends and balance. Our practice emphasises the spinal column, where the nervous system and energy channels run.
Experience for yourself the life-changing impact of Energy Yoga.
Friday night meditation
We offer a Meditation class every Friday evening, a practice that uses sound and still sitting meditation to relax into the present moment. We cultivate a willingness to soften into whatever we find when we relax within, whether that is strong feeling, no feeling, or thoughts. Through this willingness to feel the now-moment, our capacity to rest in honesty with our own experience increases, and with it, our sense of being at home.
Following the meditation there is a Q&A where we talk about areas of our experience we are struggling with, to unravel the deepest source of the struggle.
