OUR CLASSES
 

At the Yoga Garden we currently offer a mixture of online and live classes in the yurt, in a wide variety of styles, ranging from vinyasa flow & hatha yoga to more meditative and restorative classes.  We cater for all levels from complete beginners practising for the very first time, through to experienced yogis.   

 

All classes take place in our beautiful hand crafted Mongolian style Yurt. The organic breathing structure creates a light and airy space, which is both warm in Winter, thanks to the wood burning stove and felted wool lining, and cool in the summer. The Yurt has a smooth wooden floor and is fully equipped with top of the range ethically sourced organic yoga mats, blocks, bolsters and blankets. At this time as we emerge from the Corona crisis we ask you to bring your own equipment or if you need to use ours please use the cleaning equipment we have available.  For restorative classes, please bring a towel and blanket to use on our bolsters. 

Level 1 = Complete beginners, New to yoga (open to all) 

Level 2 = Beginners - intermediate (reasonable level of health and fitness required)

Level 3 = Intermediate - Advanced (for those with a regular practice who know how to modify postures when needed).

SIVANANDA YOGA

A Sivananda class is a compassionate class that is slow paced and deeply meditative. It emphasises relaxing into the poses, softening the breath and concentrating on the meditative experience.

Postures are entered slowly and held for long periods of time. Finding stillness in the pose is encouraged along with deep and slow breathing. This awakens awareness to the subtle vibrations of the energy body. A typical class begins with pranayama (breathing exercises) and salutations to the sun (a traditional warm up practice for yoga)

Twelve basic posture groups then follow in a particular sequence carefully selected to create complete balance and well being. Sivananda Yoga comes from the lineage of Swami Sivananda, and faithfully preserves the Hindu roots of yoga. 

Wednesday 7pm - 8.15pm

Teachers: Tanu

HATHA YOGA

Level 2-3


Hatha Yoga as a physical practice has been evolving for hundreds of years. The emphasis is on developing a healthy body to support the practice of meditation. Through the breathing techniques of yoga (pranayama) we will develop an awareness of the changing states of the mind and how this might aid meditation. Each week we will explore both ancient and modern asanas, moving through a simple flow of  postures, which at times will be challenging. We might discover new postures or work deeper into a more familiar sequence. There may also be some time spent exploring the older classic texts on Hatha Yoga so we can trace and understand where the practice of yoga has developed over the years.

Those that have been coming regularly to the classes will know that the ultimate practice here at the yurt is a clearing and cleansing of the body and mind, punctuating your week with a peaceful meditation. This class is available to beginners who are ready to dive in and regular practicing yogis.

Thursday 9:45am - 11.00am

Teacher: Rebecca

 
 
YOGA & MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS

Level 1

This is a gentle, slow paced, (Iyengar style) class especially suited to the complete beginner or to somebody returning to yoga after a long break, illness or injury.  The focus will be on understanding the correct alignment in the postures and taking the time to adapt them to everyone present in the class. Props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets may be used to support the body for your safety and comfort. 

 

Practising this way results in ease of breath and movement, joint mobility, improved balance, and a deeper awareness of the body.  Each class will include simple meditation and mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve overall health.  

Thursdays 11.30am - 12.30pm
