Type of Yoga
Seasonal yoga is basically traditional yoga tailored to suit the time of year according to Traditional Chinese Medicine 5 elements. It also encompasses energy work as in Qi Gong and Doa In (self shiatsu). Living in harmony with nature we pay attention to the time of year and tailor the practice accoringly. Therefore in summer when we have abundant energy the classes are more fast paced working on the heart, love and joy. Whereas in winter the opposite season our energy is yin so we work on restorative yoga as we come into 'hibernation' so to speak.
My teaching style focuses on the breath to help with the flow of energy both to strengthen and energise the body while at the same time calming the mind. Each class rounds off with a nice relaxation (savasana), which can take the form of Yoga Nidra or meditation to help the body assimilate the asana practice beforehand. You can expect a nice calm but strong practice balanced between asanas, pranayama and meditation, not to mention the all important yoga nidra which is something else entirely!
Classes are suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike as you are guided throughout the practice and modifications are offered. If you are a beginner or have any concerns due to physical or mental abilities then please contact me for a confidential chat.
