Yin Yoga – Fridays 6.30pm – Danni Walters

Yin Yoga is a gentle and deeply nourishing style of yoga that originates from the Chinese health and spiritual practices of Taoism. Yin yoga stimulates specific meridian lines within the body to cultivate healthy energetic flow and balance within the bodies organs and systems. Yin consists of gentle, supported and relaxed poses held for 3 – 5 minutes on average. The long held poses serve to safely stimulate the deep layers of connective tissue to restore and maintain healthy mobility and flexibility. Our connective tissue also holds trapped emotions, patterns, trauma and tension in the body which can be slowly released in a safe and nurturing way through this practice. The calm and peaceful approach of this practice celebrates stillness and offers the perfect complement to our busy and hectic lifestyles. Yin yoga is perfect for anyone at any level and offers an enjoyable and simple way to reduce stress and cultivate balance and well being for body, mind and soul. These classes are led by Danni Walters, click here for more info and booking.

Hatha Yoga – Saturdays 10am –Valerie Kelly

Hatha yoga focuses on alignment of breath with yoga asana (postures). It is is a slower and more relaxing pace of yoga which stretches, strengthens and tones the body while focusing on the breath to relax and calm the mind. 

The main focus of this class is improved flexibility, a reduction in stress levels and a calmer mind.

It is suitable for all levels including beginners as it is the foundation on which other styles of yoga are based. Each student is encouraged to listen to their bodies and to progress at a pace that suits them best.
