school description

Anyone can begin a yoga practice regardless of physical fitness, age or body type. In the past few years Yoga has become extremely popular with people of all ages and abilities. A regular practice offers all kinds of mental and physical health benefits. Some are obvious, like improved flexibility and physical fitness. Others are more subtle, like mental clarity, reduced anxiety and stress reduction. When put together, all the benefits contribute to an increased feeling of well-being, which helps explain why so many people find yoga so addictive. There are many styles taught here in the Yoga Loft. Just give us a call and we can help you find the right one for you. With regular practice we can eventually develop a deeper connection and understanding of ourselves, both our body and mind, and develop a more harmonious relationship with ourselves and others.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa
Level 1

This 75 minute dynamic energising class is suitable for all levels, whether you are new to the Yoga mat or just want a level 1 class. The style of the class is Vinyasa which means that the flow of the poses are synchronised with the breath. Postures are explained when introduced and different sequences are practiced to work on all areas of the body with a emphasis on breathing, alignment, strength and flexibility. Each class finishes with a guided relaxation to integrate your practice and relax the mind and body. These classes are both fun and lively yet meditative to cultivate mindfullness and peace to incorporate the philosophy and spirit of yoga.

This is an energetic and dynamic style of class. Different sequences are introduced to open the body to the flow of the practice, which combined with the breath brings harmony and balance to the mind and all systems of the body. Suitable are new to yoga and for those who have attended yoga previously.

In this class we are introducing the Ashtanga Vinyasa series combining with other vinyasa sequences. A strong class where students are encouraged to work according to their level. Modifications are also also used so that students can meet each pose individually. It is suitable for students who have a regular yoga practice.

Hatha Yoga

?Hatha Yoga
Hatha style classes are a slower and more relaxing pace of yoga that stretch, strengthen and tone your whole body while rejuvenating your system and improving breathing. The slower movements work on internal working of the body and tone and rejuvinate the organs. This class emphasis is more on relaxation than some of the more dynamic classes. Breathing and movements are generally slower and as with all classes in the studio, each student is encouraged to move at their own pace and listen to the feedback from their body so they can practice in a way that suits them best. The main focus in these classes are relaxation, injury recovery, improved flexibility, stress reduction and most importantly the cultivation of a peaceful mind.

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar Yoga is the method developed by BKS Iyengar. It is known for its structured, systematic and safe approach to practice. The teacher pays attention to every student and gives corresponding instructions to help the students improve their postures and deepen their experience of asanas. Every class is a specially selected sequence of postures. Attention, precision and alignment in asanas are inherent features of Iyengar Yoga.

The Iyengar method of yoga uses many props such as support blocks and belts, allowing individuals at any range of flexibility to get maximum benefit from the poses. Classes focus on building flexibility and stamina and correct alignment. This class is suitable for all students.
