All classes start with gentle movement, and breathe work, to warm up the body ready for the practice.
Regular yoga practice builds a strong, toned, supple body. It helps improve fitness, posture, and balance, as well as calming, and focusing the mind.
Yoga props (mats, bolsters, belts, blocks, etc.) are not currently being provided due to COVID restrictions. Please bring your own mat and you’re welcome to bring along other props if you have them.
Vinyasa Yoga (Saturday afternoons)
This is a Vinyasa class, but sometimes the teacher mixes in different elements from the classes he’s taught and the study he’s done through the week. So, you might find some strong or slow flow yoga, yin yoga, restorative poses and maybe even some Pilates mixed into the class.
Come along prepared to smile and let go of any stress that might’ve built up through the week.
Slow Flow Yoga (morning classes – Tuesday and Thursday)
Slow flow classes are for those looking to introduce themselves to yoga and those wanting to refine their technique. It will build your strength, and stamina, and improve your flexibility in a nurturing and supportive environment, allowing you space to explore and relax.
In Slow Flow yoga we mindfully move from one pose to another, in time to our breath, but we also hold some poses for a little longer.
This class is for anyone wanting a gentle morning class to set yourself up for the day.
Yoga Flow (Tuesday evening)
Yoga Flow is a general class that combines a few different techniques – breathing, mediation, relaxation and vinyasa sequences (mindfully moving our bodies in time to our breath). This class is similar to our Slow Flow but with more time spent flowing from one pose to another. This can be quite meditative as you mindfully become aware of your breathing and movements.
So, whether it’s your very first class or you have tons of experience, be prepared to practice in a positive atmosphere with pose options to cater for different levels of experience and capability.
This class, as with all our classes, challenges you to make your own choices, and encourages you to focus on your own body. We are all on our own yoga paths, and shouldn’t be comparing ourselves to anyone else in a class.
A self care experience. Develop body awareness, and discover your natural breath. A great class for stress relief, and rejuvenation.
The first class of the month is a yin yoga class. This is a class where poses are held for a longer duration. This targets the deep connective tissues between the muscles and the fascia through out the body.
The last class of the month is a yoga nidra class. This is a deep relaxation class where you enter a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping – a meditative consciousness called samadhi.
Ease and Effort
A semi-active practice. The class progresses at a comfortable pace. It’s perfect for those days you need to slow down. Experience it for yourself.
Pilates helps develop strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, co-ordination, balance, and good posture, through low impact exercises. Its emphasis is on proper postural alignment, core strength, and muscle balance.
A pilates workout really is for anyone at any level, and as its focus is on working the core muscles, it’s only an hour class.
Gentle Hatha Yoga (not currently running)
Gentle Hatha Yoga is for anyone wanting to start yoga, as well as anyone wanting to improve their technique. The class focus is on yoga pose basics, and body alignment.
It will build your strength and stamina, improve flexibility in a nurturing, and supportive environment.
Intro Course (Beginners Yoga)
The Introduction Course teaches beginners the basics of key yoga poses, some of their Sanskrit names, and breathing techniques. You will also learn how to safely stretch your muscles, without causing pain, or discomfort, and how to use breathe to deepen your flexibility, and sense of wellbeing.
This class will give you a solid foundation, and the confidence to move on to any of Yogalane’s regular classes.
Personal Yoga Session (One-To-One)
Always wanted to try yoga, but don’t feel confident, or comfortable, with the thought of being in a room full of students? Maybe you’ve been practicing for a while, and are now ready to go deeper into those yoga poses?
Whether you’re a ‘first time’ beginner, or experienced, a personal yoga session, or sessions, might just be what you’re looking for.
These sessions are the perfect environment to learn the basics of yoga; refine your yoga poses; ensure correct alignment; and strengthen, and tone, specific areas of the body. As with any yoga class, you will also learn how to calm the mind.
