These classes are open to students who have at least 2 years regular and recent yoga practice and is a class in the viniyoga tradition. ‘The viniyoga of yoga’ simply mean ‘the intelligent application of yoga’ and in this tradition each person is seen as an individual and sessions offer a meditative approach to yoga through which various yoga techniques are applied to each individual’s circumstances and requirements. This is a form of yoga which utilises the relationship between breath and movement and recognises the influence one has on the other with the aim of creating strength, flexibility and ease in the body and peace in the mind.
This class includes vedic chanting and use of sound, meditation, and considerable focus is given to breathwork including more advanced forms of pranayama. It can also include the use of bandhas.
The term ‘experienced’ does not suggest that the class is physically harder or that we do more challenging postures. It indicates an ability to work with asana and pranayama in a deeper and more mindful way.
This is a face to face class in the studio.
