The class will be a gentle yoga practice suitable for beginner/intermediate yoga lovers. The class will increase your flexibility, build strength and awareness, help release stress, and will leave you feeling floating. It will start with a vinyasa flow for 60 minutes followed by a yoga nidra practice for the final 15 minutes or so.
Vinaysa flow is a style of yoga based on ashtanga yoga, which allows for flow of movement and change in the sequence of the poses. It can get dynamic at times, with longer holds in certain positions. The class will have a theme which will run for about a month, allowing the students to learn the flow, but not get too used and familiar with it, offering a new challenge every 4-5 weeks.
Yoga nidra is a deep relaxation technique based on Satyananda School of yoga. Yoga nidra can be translated as yogic sleep. It is a relaxation technique that most students find extremely rewarding after practicing just a couple of times.
