Hatha Vinyassa flow Yoga
Wednesday with Mirella training since 2007 she has become passionate about the discipline which has taken her to a deep understanding and knowledge.
Since then she has never stopped training and learning. The journey to India, in 2013 meant training in Ashtanga and Hatha yoga and since then she has never stopped training and learning.
The classes she teaches can be energetic and fast as well as slow and calm. In both cases you’ll go home feeling refreshed, stronger and surely calmer.
Thursday yoga with Christian. Christian is a registered yoga teacher after qualifying in Bali with Santosha Yoga Institute. His approach to yoga is grounded in a BSc(Hons) Applied Sports Science degree and delivered with a confidence acquired after serving as a British Army Officer. His flowing practice is accessible to all and heavily steeped in a positive and motivational energy that is focused on developing your breath, whilst stretching and strengthening your body.
Thursday with Ruth 9.30 Ruth is a 500 hour, level 4 diploma and one of the most comprehensive and rigorous courses available. In Ruths class Students can expect a mindful, flowing practice with an emphasis on alignment, breath and precision of movement. Ruth’s aim is that students of all levels leave feeling physically challenged but also relaxed, recalibrated and completely confident in their abilities.
At 10.45 Ruth is now practicing Yin Yoga postures are held for 3-5 minutes whilst sitting or lying with a passive body. This practice lends itself to introspection and mindfulness as you’re invited to slow down, take stock and stay in posture – even when the stretch feels intense. Yin is a wonderful compliment to yang styles of yoga such as dynamic flow and ‘yang’ sports such as running, cycling and weight training.
Another major difference is that yang styles focus primarily on the muscles of the body. The repetitions and more rapid movements of practices such as dynamic flow encourage strength and tone. Yin yoga on the other hand, works more with the connective tissue, joints and ligaments. Muscles are invited to relax so that fascia and other connective tissue can unbind and release as the practitioner stays in posture and finds stillness giving you that glorious ‘just been for a massage’ feeling.
