Yoga comprises a philosophy for living and part of that philosophy is centred around connecting mind and body through controlling the breath and practicing asanas (poses).. All Yoga Styles such as Yin, Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Yoga Nidra (Restorative) are derived from the same set of postures. The difference is in how the postures are put together, if there is a set sequence, if the postures are held for a set number of breaths or for longer and longer amounts of time as practice progresses. There are also levels to the postures to help you build to them. Practice may also use props such as blocks, blankets, straps, bolsters and benches.

As you read through the styles keep in mind that as you practice yoga your strength, flexibility, stamina and calmness of mind will improve and change. Some people enjoy taking the same classes, whilst others change over time as their needs and interests change. The classes are designed progressively so as you grow there will be a class to challenge you. There are classes that focus on basic yoga postures for beginners to advanced asanas and even to more therapy based classes that focus on yoga poses for lymphatic drainage.

Yoga Fundamentals

Yoga Fundamentals – Beginners Yoga Brisbane – If you are new to yoga and feel unsure about how difficult it will be then this is the class for you. We will show you yoga postures for beginners and our experienced yoga instructors focus on showing you how to do these postures correctly to maximise the benefits.

Shakti Flow

Shakti is directly translated to ‘Power’ or ‘Divine Energy

Shakti Flow is a class designed for those who are looking for something a little more fast paced to open the body up, build strength, lose fat and improve their fitness. More cardio is incorporated into the class to assist with the burning of fat and improve overall fitness levels. Please note this is NOT a ‘hot yoga’ or ‘heated yoga’ class. Instead we will be building fire from the inside out. Beginner – Intermediate. A moderate level of fitness is recommended.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga involves holding postures for 15 – 20 breaths or longer and is perfect for those who want to get deeper into the stretch and explore how their bodies are feeling.

The purpose of this class is to build the mental, emotional and physical faculties. By holding postures for longer periods you start to understand the weaknesses and strengths of your body, you build concentration, patience, focus and stamina.

Hatha brings stillness and allows for a deeper connection between mind and body. Whilst this can be challenging to those who find it difficult to relax and concentrate it also provides benefits that improve life in many areas. You will increase strength, flexibility, improve sleep and feel a sense of control that is often lacking for many.

Are you new to Yoga?

The idea of starting a yoga practice can be daunting and you may wonder if you can do it. No matter your age, strength level or flexibility you can always make a start. Part of the beauty of yoga is accepting where you are and enjoying how your body changes.

Therapeutic Yoga

An Iyengar inspired class using props to help you go deeper into the postures, while still supporting the body and keeping yourself safe.

By using blocks, belts, bolsters and blankets we take the opportunity to really focus on alignment, and let Yoga’s naturally therapeutic nature immerse you. All levels welcome.

Hips & Back

Hips & Back focuses primarily on the hips including adductors, glutes, lower back, and generally lengthening the major back muscles such as lats.

This sequence is excellent for lower back pain and aching, leg stiffness, tight hip flexors, tight quads, and the symptoms associated with Lower Cross Syndrome.

Lower Cross is a set of tight and weak muscles that results in an anterior tilt to the pelvis. It is characterised by tight lower back muscles, tight hip flexors & quads, weak abdominals and weak glutes. In layman’s terms, it creates a bit of a tummy and a protruding bottom. It also results in lower back pain and sciatica.

Restorative Yoga

Do you enjoy a deeper stretch followed by some time to rest and unwind? Then this is the class for you. Yin yoga works on the yin tissues – also known as connective tissues. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load which is why we hold the poses for longer. If you gently stretch connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time in this way, the body will respond by making it a little longer and stronger – which is exactly what you want. Remember, the principle of exercise is to stress the tissue so the body will respond by strengthening it.

Restorative yoga uses blocks, bolsters, and blankets to support the body while softening throughout the practice. Postures in restorative are also held for a longer period while still being kind to the body. Ideal for people who want to clear the head and make space for the things that matter. Leave the class feeling a little bit lighter. A Nourishing, meditative class for everyone. Beginner friendly. All levels welcome.

Matwork Pilates

Learn to balance and control the major muscles in the body, reduce muscle overload and pain, support current injuries and prevent future ones. You will receive a whole body workout that will teach you habits that will assist in your other fitness activities, day to day chores and postures at work.

I love the idea of Pilates training as it challenges and supports the body. It’s something you can never over train in because it will only bring your body into balance. With a regular commitment to one or two sessions a week you will end up with longer, leaner and stronger muscles in your body. It is a simple but powerful method of movement that can be adjusted for any injury or fitness level and you will always be challenged.
