** Description of Class Styles **
Yin and Yang Yoga
The exercises in the Yin and Yang Yoga Class are easier on the joints than the
Hatha and Yin Yoga classes.
This class is excellent for
endocrine system harmony and is suitable for all ages and all levels of experience.
These weekly programs contain a mixture of Yin and Yang activity, the Yin exercises being slow and easy and the Yang exercises
being more fast paced and energetic . However, attendees may choose to do ALL exercises the slow and easy way, especially on days
when their energy level is a bit low.
Both choices have their own rewards.
Fast and vigorous has you leaving the class feeling wonderfully energetic and uplifted.
Smooth and slow will
improve movement and breath co-ordination.
Both styles induce an ongoing relaxed state and a sense of calm.
My advice is to start slowly and only speed up if and when you are ready.
That may be during your first class, a few weeks later, or perhaps never.
There's no right or wrong.
We're never too old or too young to improve the way we look and feel. When we work on better muscle tone and body shape,
we become healthier in every way.
Yoga Sculpt classes are short and invigorating. The exercises are moderately easy but will require persistence
and dedication to ramp up stamina.
Streamline the body into a better shape, but remember that your
true beauty begins deep within,
shining out through your smile and eyes.
Yin Yoga is simple, however that does not mean it is always easy.
Due to limited flexibility, some may find holding a few of the positions a little demanding at first, while others may have difficulty
finding the patience necessary to relax completely. With gentle guidance, both of these challenges can be overcome relatively easily.
Yin Yoga incorporates Pranayama Breath Control, distributing vital life force energy
throughout the whole body. As well as having a calming and energising effect, Pranayama is an excellent way to nourish all our cells
with oxygen and nutrients, and remove toxic debris
from the body. Yin Yoga is like needleless acupuncture, eliminating energy blocks from meridian pathways.
This meditative and relaxing class suits everyone. Age or lack of yoga experience is irrelevant.

Hatha Yoga enhances well-being physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Physically and energetically,
muscles are strengthened and toned.
All the internal systems become balanced and harmonised.
Breathing deeply and smoothly into postures improves the circulatory system,
We ensure the distribution of an
optimal supply of oxygen to all our organs and cells.
Every cell needs oxygen to survive.
Long, slow exhalations improve
the functionality of the calming Vagal Nervous System.
This class also stimulates the lymphatic system, aiding detoxification.
My Hatha Yoga classes are suitable for beginners and those at intermediate level.
Variations are given for more gentle or more challenging
For example, the above pose could be done lying on the floor on one's side, using a strap around the foot.
We Relax in Savasana at the end of each class.
Your neuromuscular system then integrates all you did during your physical practice.
In Savasana, we let go of any residual tensions, physical, mental or emotional.
Yoga Nidra induces complete physical, mental and
Some do this practice regularly because it helps them get a better night's sleep,
others because they discover they can
handle life's troubles and frustrations more calmly.
However there is so much more to Yoga Nidra.
Lying in stillness and covered with a blanket, you will relax your whole body completely. You will then be guided into the Theta Brain Waves State.
The Theta state, also known as
the Hypnoyogic state, is the dividing line between
being asleep and awake. The brain wave cycles are gradually slowed down
so that the conscious mind
settles into complete rest.
When resting this deeply there is no judging, analysing, worrying, decision-making, etc.
This is a
to plant the seed of your Sankalpa into your subconscious mind.
A Sankalpa is a positive intention to improve your life,
or perhaps achieve a goal.
In the Theta Brain Wave state, your mind is very powerful.
Your Deeper and Higher Self will assist to ensure your
Of course, you must do your bit consciously too as you continue with daily life, not just sit back to see what happens!
Know the path you want to take, and you
can become the Director of your Life.

'Stepping Stones to Meditation'.
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of self awareness and rejuvenation. Sequences are designed to remove toxins and awaken dormant energy as we

Dynamic movement combined with Breath of Fire releases endorphins, which are feel good hormones. Participants leave

and energised, and at the same time clear-headed and happy.
Socrates said, "If you would seek health, first look to the spine."
If we did not have calendars, our age would probably be measured by the health and flexibility of the spine.
Kundalini Yoga keeps the spine strong and flexible, ensuring that we carry ourselves in a youthful and confident manner.
NB: In my Kundalini Yoga class I invite everyone to go at their own pace.
For Kundalini Awakening, (advanced and intense) you need a qualified Kundalini Master.
More on Yin Yoga
My love of Yin Yoga came as a bit of a surprise to me as it looked like a lot of lying around doing nothing.I discovered it does indeed
involve a lot of doing not much at all, however after my first class I was hooked.
This is not to say others will love it quite so
readily; as a Meditation teacher I was already well-practised in the art of relaxation and mindful breathing.
Learning to relax deeply for anyone who is stressed or overly busy can take a little time and dedication. However the benefits
of Yin Yoga
do begin on Day One, even if they are too subtle to appreciate fully at the time.
As blockages in the energy channels dissolve,
you will feel lighter,
more energised and yet deeply relaxed. The breathing
techniques can make your practice serenely meditative.
In Yin Yoga, most postures are done at floor level and are held for several minutes. This is to give the muscles time to soften and
Our muscles (and organs) are contained in a network of connective tissue called fascia, which is similar to cling wrap.
However when muscles are tight,
fascia becomes more like shrink wrap.
Letting go into stillness in certain positions gives time for the fascia to
soften and rehydrate.
The muscles are then able to move more fluidly.
The muscles completely relax in Yin Yoga positions, and then other connective tissues, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage
begin to receive TLC.
As they soften into gentle traction, they become rehydrated and more flexible.
Synovial fluids will then flow more freely... becoming juicy.
You will notice more comfort and ease of movement in everyday life.
Hatha and Yin Yoga should not be seen as a one-or-the-other choice, rather they are complementary for each other.
While Yin Yoga allows time and space for synovial fluids to flow freely, rehydrating the joint mechanisms, a yang practice such as
Hatha Yoga strengthens and tones.
Muscle strength is necessary to support the joint flexibility we achieve through the more
passive practice of Yin Yoga.
