FAQ

For those who are new to yoga we recommend Starters’ yoga, Gentle Hatha, Core care, Stretch & Release, and Restorative yoga classes to beginn with.

You do not need to be flexible to do yoga. Flexibility is the result of a regular, blanced yoga practice.

Take each class at your own pace. Listen to your body and work with it. Accept its limitations, its only temporary. Breathe, your body is amazing!

Its recommended to wait for doc’s all clear before getting back to regular exercises. Regardless of way of delivery. Once you have that, we do offer Mum/Parent & Baby Yoga, Women’s well-being and gentle Hatha yoga classes. All of these were designed to help the postpartum body ease back into active lifestyle.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! The coming days and weeks are truly special, therefor we do offer prenatal yoga classes, especially designed for the changing body, both emotionally and physically. Restorative yoga class is also available for expectant mums.

Practicing in the

heat

  • Keep hydrated during the day, drink loads before you come to class. You can add electrolites to your water or drink coconut water. It has electrolites aleady
  • Avoid heavy meals at least 2 hours beofe class starts
  • The room is heated to warm the muscles and allow you to work deeper in a shorter period of time. You are massaging organs, glands and deep tissues in the body. As you work deep within your body, you will start releasing toxinsthrough your skin, that have been storred there for long time. Sweating helps to flush toxins from your body.¬†
  • Bring your own mat size, non slippery towel to cover the mat and prepare to sweat
  • Take only small sips of water during class
  • Be mindful! Heat allows deeper stretches, therefore its easy to go over the limits of your body.
  • You may feel nauseous or dizzy during class. Come to child’s pose or lie down on your back and join back when you are ready.

Candlelight Restirative

Wednesday ‚Äď 8.30 pm ‚Äď Nikoletta¬†

Candlelight Restorative

Restorative yoga is all about letting go and restoring your body to its normal state.

The aim of this class is that you feel no tension in the body at all. We create a relaxing atmosphere, where candles are lit, music is soft and lights are dimmed. During this class, there are only 5-6 poses within the hour, holding them for a longer period of time. To avoid tensing up the muscles we are using props to accommodate all needs of your joints.

Restorative poses strengthen the immune system, calm the nervous system, relax muscles, slow down the metabolism, support the healing process, re-balance hormones, and aid sleeping & digestive system. This class is meditative, slows brain waves and running thoughts.

This class is ideal if your life is stressful and/or you do suffer from anxiety. No fitness level or previous yoga experience is required.

Core Care

This is a class designed to focus on your core health and strengthen.

This class is medium-paced, where we are focusing on breathing and the engagement of essential muscles. Strengthening your core has the benefits of giving better, stronger support to your spine, improving posture, and making you more aware of your body. Your core muscles protect vital organs in your abdomen and support your spine in the front of the body.

No previous yoga experience is required.

Gentle Hatha

Gentle Hatha

This class provides a variety of asanas in a gentle, less physical way.

The right alignment helps you to be confident and stay safe on your mat. We use props to help the body let go and deepen the stretch. Really tune into the body with your breath.

This class is ideal for beginners, those who want to ease back into practice after any medical treatment; anybody suffering from anxiety, and/or have a stressful life.

Men Only

Friday – 8.30 pm – Heather

Men Only

Men Only class was created to encourage all men to attend yoga classes.

Doing so to take care of their mental and physical health. In my experience, men’s body needs time to open up and release stress and tension. Men are usually tighter in their shoulders, hips, hamstrings, and calves. We work on those areas as we breathe and stretch and relax.

We create a friendly, relaxing environment without expectation to allow the body & mind the time needed. Just being and accepting. With space comes flexibility, creating a normal or even wider range of movement as before.

The class is medium-paced, with an emphasis on breathing and letting go. We take it slow.

No fitness level or previous yoga experience is required.

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa flow is a relatively strong, physical practice.

In this class yogis move with their own breath, moving fluidly from one pose to another. This class is about the smooth transition between asanas.

Women's well-being

Women’s well-being class was created for Ladies of all ages at any stage of life.

In this class, we are focusing on areas such as the core, glutes, thighs, and pelvic floor. These are the particular areas most women have issues with. Taking care of them from an early stage in life, maintaining their health, strengthening, or relaxing is very important.

Wednesday Р7.00 pm РNikoletta 

Yin/Yang Yoga

Yin Yang yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice.

The main yang part of the class is active, flowing, and energizing, aiming to develop muscular strength, stamina, and flexibility. The yin portion of the class is gentle, quiet, and meditative that teaches us to relax and accept ourselves just as we are.

We aspire to stillness, allowing the muscles to relax so that the deep connective tissues around the body can be mindfully stretched for 3 – 10 minutes. In order for balance to occur, we need both yang and yin elements in our lives. This class gives a taster of both, allowing you to leave the class feeling stronger and more relaxed.

Basic yoga experience is required. 

1 on 1 Yoga Therapy (appointment ONLY)

Yoga for Trauma

Our aim is to create a soothing, relaxing, feel-safe environment and through a very slow-paced practice we calm the mind; reaching into the parasympathetic nervous system where healing is happening.

Conscious breathing keeps you in the present moment, therefore less chance for the mind to wonder. This practice will increase your body awareness and promotes a positive attitude towards self and life.

“Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you as a result of what happens to you.” (Dr. Gabor Mate)

This class is for you if you suffer from PTSD, anxiety, depression, severe stress. If you have been diagnosed with autoimmune disease or cancer. It is also a great complementary element of counseling. (Attending this class does not replace one-to-one therapy when and where it’s needed)

Please note that this class is ONLY available as 1 on 1 yoga therapy due to the nature of the practice. 

No previous yoga experience is required.

Class is under scheduling 

Youngster Yoga (14-18 years)

During this class, we introduce the children to Hatha yoga poses to work the body and encourage muscle engagement.

The aim of our classes is to teach body and breath awareness (pranayama), self regulate and through breathing and physical exercise (asanas) help this age group to cope with pressure/anxiety. We aim to create a friendly and relaxing environment where the children can release.

We will try to combine movement with breath and be in the present moment. Towards the end of the class, we introduce yin yoga poses to quiet the mind and deepen the final relaxation (Savasana). Practicing yoga for this age group can boost the immune system and self-confidence along with a positive body image.

We are taking each class as it comes, and how moods fluctuate due to hormonal changes.

No previous yoga experience is required.
