Five Seasons Yoga
Five Seasons Yoga is a contemporary vinyasa yoga practice which integrates graceful movements from qigong and other ancient warrior arts. Classes open with flowing sequences punctuated by held postures, breath-work and mindfulness exercises and close with a long guided relaxation/meditation (yoga Nidra). Classes are suitable for all ages, sizes and levels of mobility.
A Seasonal Approach
My work is rooted in Ayurveda also know as traditional Indian medicine and the 'sister science' of yoga. One of the aims of Ayurveda is to help us work with the qualities of spring, summer, autumn and winter through practices that support us during these different times of year. Because we approach each season differently you will learn a variety of yoga practices to help you self-care all year round.
Classes begin with a seasonal poem, some breath-work and joint mobilisation. We are then ready for our flows combined with a range of standing, kneeling, seated and lying postures. Classes finish with a guided relaxation/meditation (Yoga Nidra), another poetry reading to tie up the seasonal theme, an aromatic breathing exercise and a short closing ritual.
