WEEKLY PUBLIC CLASSES
Tues 5-6pm Hatha Relax
Thursday 9:30-11am Hatha
These classes are both traditional hatha yoga classes beginning with sun salutations to warm the body but then becoming a more static class where poses are held for a longer period with a focus on breath and functional alignment. Very grounding and designed to create space in the body and mind due to longer holding of postures. This class balances strength and flexibility, cleanses the body and tunes you in to be able to listen to the messages of the body. It includes basic pranayama techniques, mantra, a short yoga nidra as well as yogic philosophy interwoven throughout.
Friday Flow 9-10:15am
This Flow class begins with a heating, dynamic, standing practice flowing through a number of vinyasas, building strength and flexibility. We build to a sequence of backbends, hip-openers and / or forward bends which can be modified according to capabilities and finish with more yin-like seated postures, twists and Inversions.
We finish with calming pranayama to focus the mind, a short yoga nidra practice and/or harmonium + mantra sound healing - for complete relaxation. Yoga philosophy embedded throughout.
Some experience of yoga is required as this is a strong, dynamic class.
This earlier morning class is designed to awaken and refresh the body to greet the day feeling grounded and calm. A dynamic class yet adaptable to all levels of ability. There will be a general focus on the major joints of the body to improve flow of prana - our life force energy. A short guided relaxation or savasana to the sound of harmonium and mantra will end the class to imbue your day with peace.
A dip in the ocean after class (merely metres away) will top off your morning and send you cruising into your weekend.
| corporate or private yoga sessions |
A private yoga session can be a great way to start out when a full class feels intimidating - learn the basics before you commit to a public class.They can also be wonderful for those recovering from injury, illness or chronic pain as Emma can take it at a pace that is guided by you. Emma can focus on alignment challenges specific to you, target specific outcomes that you'd like to achieve personally and work from where you're at. It can also be a really fun thing to do with a group of friends, on a weekend away or pre-wedding activity.
