Vinyasa Yoga
Vinyasa means – ‘breath synchronised movement’. Vinyasa is a flowing style of yoga linking movement with conscious breath. Each class is a unique sequence of poses designed to tone your body, improve your posture, stamina and flexibility. You will leave feeling calmer, energized and more focussed.

Vinyasa’s strength is its diversity. There is room for the individual teacher's personalities, style and experiences to come through. Yoga teaches the means by which the human spirit - jivatma – can be united with God – paramatma – and so secure liberation – moksa.

His three audio cd's - The Fundamentals of Flow, Flow Alignment and Vinyasa Flow are available from www.wellbeingworldonline.com
* The first book to systematize the practice was the classic treatise the Yoga Sutras (or Aphorisms) of Patanjali 
(a great Indian sage) dating 200 B.C.

PASSION

I am passionate about ensuring that our studio, the classes, workshops and health services offered are infused with spirit – Sattva - and with heart - Anahata.
I value:

Prana - Increasing the life force of the body through postures and sequences that create flexibility, strength, balance and alignment.

Vinyasa - The synchronisation of breath and movement.

Dharana - The development of mental concentration and emotional resilience through linked postures, ujaya breathing, bhandas (energy locks), dristi (focus points), anchoring and affirmation.

Bhakti - Mind stilling, deep relaxation, honouring our spirit, interconnectedness and Divine source.

Ahimsa - A safe, supportive compassionate approach that respects all levels and focuses on ‘Softening' into the stretch of ‘life’. This also includes the importance of a vegetarian diet to attain one-pointed attention and spiritual growth.

In the Bhagavad Gita – Sri Krishna explains to Arjuna – “when the restlessness of the mind, intellect and self is stilled through the practise of Yoga, the yogi, by the grace of the Spirit within, finds fulfilment”.
