Five Seasons Yoga 

Five Seasons Yoga is based on Ayurveda also know as traditional Indian medicine and the 'sister science' of yoga.  It aims to help us work with the qualities of spring, summer, autumn and winter through practices that support us during these different times of year. The 5th season refers to our internal climate of balance or homeostasis which is the aim of this form of yoga. Because we approach each season differently you will learn a variety of yoga practices to help you self-care all year round. 

 

Kalari-Qi Flow

In Five Seasons Yoga classes, held postures are linked by flowing sequences inspired by movements found in Kalaripayattu (Indian martial art) and Qigong. 

Many of the movements are based on animal forms that connect us to our ancestral and warrior lineages. These seasonal 'vinyasas' or flows lie at the heart of this graceful and creative form of Hatha yoga. 

 

Class Structure

Classes begin with setting a seasonal/elemental theme, a short meditation, some breath-work and joint mobilisation. We are then ready for our flows punctuated by a range of standing, kneeling, seated and lying postures. Classes finish with a guided relaxation called Yoga Nidra, a poetry reading and an aromatic breathing exercise. Suitable for all levels. Beginners very welcome!
