Prenatal Yoga classes specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy. Curated to be a therapeutic blend of bodywork, breath and meditation, interweaving childbirth education, Prenatal Yoga will physically and mentally prepare you for birth. There is a focus on active birth techniques, relaxation as well as wisdom and knowledge that will support you through each stage of your pregnancy and birthing journey. Linking yoga postures with the breath will lead you to new discoveries, bringing awareness to the mind, body and spirit.
The intention is to instill you with the courage, confidence and trust to combine comprehensive understanding together with your instinct and intuition when birthing your baby. Our teacher, Sue Lee brings in over 20 years of experience in specialised bodywork therapies, natural health modalities and a passion for working with expectant mothers. She has trained with many renowned experts in the field of pre and postnatal therapy, bodywork and yoga. Our classes can be joined anytime after the first trimester.
Mums and bubs yoga is a weekly space to fill your own well and re-centre. The practice supports mother and baby bonding and is a way to spend time with other mums in your area. The practice focuses on strengthening and stabilising the core and pelvic floor, and opening the shoulders and upper back.
Each session is held with the babies on the mother's mat. There are opportunities to playfully interact with your baby during the yoga positions. We may massage the babies, tickle them, chant, sing or rock them.
At any time you are welcome to attend to your baby by rocking, feeding or changing them in the studio. Each class completes with a guided relaxation and short, seated meditation.
The class is suitable to attend anytime from 6 weeks after a vaginal birth and 8 to 10 weeks after a Caesarean birth. After a Caesarean, please confirm with your midwife or your GP/OB to make sure that your body has began to heal enough that you can safely practice yoga. You are welcome to continue until your baby is at trotting age
Kundalini Yoga is a complete yogic science and technology. A dynamic practice that combines the use of asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath), mantra (sound) and meditation through the practice of a kriya (complete action) to activate, strengthen and balance the glandular and nervous systems, expand the lung capacity, purify the bloodstream and align you with your full human potential.
Kundalini Yoga opens the flow of energy in the body, increases the capacity for neutrality of the mind and raises our consciousness. The effects of the practice are profound and fast, allowing body, mind and spirit to function at their optimum. No prior experience of yoga is required to join our classes and they are open to all over the age of 16 years. If you are currently pregnant, please see our specialised Prenatal Yoga classes.
Connect to your awareness. Rest in that awareness throughout the day to enhance creativity and positivity. This yoga class, designed to develop awareness, is in the Satyananda Yoga Tradition from the Bihar School of Yoga and focuses on ‘asana’, physical practices or postures which bring balance and harmony to the body and mind; ‘pranayama’, breath awareness and expansion to connect with the vital life force; ‘Yoga Nidra’, deep relaxation and/or meditation.
Whether you are a beginner, an ‘on’ and ‘off’ practitioner or a more experienced practitioner, the class is designed to suit your individual needs, irrespective of ability and age. Therefore, it is suitable for beginners to more experienced students of yoga.
In this class you will receive experienced teaching and delve into all aspects of yoga from the physical to the spiritual.
My intention for this new Dynamic Hatha Yoga class is to nurture a community of students who are sincere in learning more about yoga and deepening both their asana and spiritual practice based on non-dual Tantra teachings and practices.
This class is for intermediate or more advanced stages of practice as we will regularly delve into inversions, backbends and balancing poses as well as chanting scared mantras, pranayama, meditation and view teachings/contemplations!
Cultivating a healthy and strong body is a necessary aspect of the path so expect rich teaching cues that will help guide you to experience all asanas in their fullness, whilst making space for your individual ability and body type.
And if you are not quite there yet with your asana or spiritual practice, I encourage you to first attend at least three or four beginner courses with me prior to joining this class!
