A therapeutic and quiet class, focused on deep release and intended to complement more active styles of Yoga.
You will learn various tools to re-train and hydrate the fascia (an inter-web of connective tissue surrounding our muscles, joints and bones) which often becomes very tight and contracted when we do a lot of sitting, standing or working out. Release tension using long-held postures combined with self-massage (sometimes using balls), accupressure, pranayama and visualisation techniques to change the habitual postural patterns of chronic pain, depression/anxiety and stress.
You’ll learn to strengthen the muscle of your mind by applying mindful awareness to bodily sensations as you let go into the long holds. Creating space and freedom in our tissues can lead to a more open state of mind. As energy flows more freely around the body, we can begin to feel calmer, lighter and more focused in the present moment.
Enjoy cultivating subtle awareness in this explorative Hatha Yoga class.
Through the practice of moving your body physically with the breath, we can begin to notice mental and physical habits and re-wire our brains toward greater ease. You will learn to be present and turn your attention to your body, thus slowly transforming your physical, emotional and spiritual health. You will walk away feeling lighter, more connected to yourself (and therefore others) and much calmer!
This class is trauma-sensitive. It would benefit those suffering from chronic stress and emotional pain (including depression and anxiety) and those who have physical limitations (pain, injury, recent surgery, disability, struggling with self-esteem, body image).
Moving Toward Emotional Balance
The perfect blend of the practice of Restorative Yoga combined with the theory of Mindfulness.
In this small-group six week series, you will learn tools to self-regulate your nervous system, helping to build resilience in body and mind. Come as you are for this nurturing practice, everything is optional and has variations to suit your needs. Post-practice, expect to feel grounded, more open
and hopefully drift away for a restful night's sleep.

Love is so exquisitely elusive. It cannot be bought, cannot be badgered, cannot be hijacked. It is available only in one rare form: as the natural response of a healthy mind and healthy heart.
