All Grampians Wellbeing group classes are Hatha Yoga classes incorporating pranayama (breathwork), asana (poses), and savasana (the best bit at the end of each class where you lie down for mediation / relaxation!) but I offer a few different class styles so no matter where you are in your practice, or how you are feeling on the day, there’s an option for you:
RISE ~ Morning Yoga: 6.30am to 7.30am Tuesdays
This one is for the early birds (or for those who know the chances of getting to an evening yoga class are non-existent!). Start your day right with breath, movement and rest. Rise is a full spectrum yoga class meaning it includes seated, standing & laying poses. We start our practice with pranayama/breathwork before thoroughly warming up our joints and body ready for the standing portion of our practice ahead. This section is a mix of the hatha and vinyasa styles listed below, creating heat, strength and length in our muscles as well as getting our blood and energy pumping around our body. We end with a few juicy, longer held floor poses then a restful savasana before heading off to tackle our day ahead feeling focussed and refreshed!
SLOW FLOW ~ Hatha Yoga: 5.45pm to 6.45pm Tuesdays (Beginner Friendly!)
Anyone whose been to one of my classes will know I love yoga technique & this class is where you’ll get the most instruction for our poses. This is a slower, mindful practice where we focus on technique, alignment and breath. Slow Flow is also a full spectrum class which includes seated, standing and laying poses. Starting with pranayama/breathwork to centre and ground ourselves, we warm up our joints and core before heading into the standing portion of our practice. Here we practice foundational Sun Salutes and flows, standing strength and balance before moving back down to the floor for longer held poses to open and release through the body. We finish in the most important pose in our practice – savasana. This is where we rest and allow all the benefits of our practice sink in.
RESTORE ~ Restorative/Yin Yoga: 7.00pm to 8.00pm Tuesdays (Beginner Friendly!)
We spend a lot of our lives in our yang/doing mode without taking enough time out to rest and reset in our yin mode, which is essential for our wellbeing. This is a Restorative/Yin Yoga class where you can unfold, calm your sympathetic nervous system and give back to yourself. The practice is very slow and all floor based with no standing poses. We start with pranayama/breathwork and after warming up, we move into long, held poses. We practice with the support of a yoga bolster (or alternative) to affect the deep connective tissues of our body. This assists with flexibility and helps keep our muscles healthy and happy. This class is deeply restorative for your body and mind. Let yourself slip into calm and stillness as you take some time out to restore, reset and replenish your energy. *Bolster (or alternative) required.
FLOW ~ Vinyasa Yoga: 5.45pm to 6.45pm Thursdays
Flow is a Vinyasa yoga class where we flow! After starting with pranayama/breathwork and warming up, we then move into a vinyasa style of yoga once we get to the standing portion of our practice. This is where we flow from one pose into the next and match the movements with our breath. This can become like a moving meditation and one of my personal favourite styles of yoga to practice. There is less time to give detailed instructions while moving through the poses and an understanding of Sun Salutes and foundational yoga poses is required so this class isn’t suitable for beginners. After flowing, we come down to the floor for some longer held poses to really stretch out and lengthen tight muscles, before sinking into savasana to finish our practice.
- Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move easily. Yoga doesn’t care what brand you wear & neither do I!
- We practice yoga barefoot but make sure you have socks handy to keep your feet warm during savasana … unless of course it’s a stinking hot day!
- Avoid heavy meals for the 2 hours prior to your practice. The last thing you want is an uneasy feeling in your tummy during your practice!
- Switch your phone off or to silent before your practice. Remember, this is YOUR time. You don’t need to be interrupted … & neither does anyone else enjoying the class.
- Yoga helps build strength & flexibility by practicing & progressing at YOUR level. It is important to honour your body & where it is at on any given day.
- Leave your ego at the door & listen to your body. This is your practice. Don’t worry about what anyone else is doing.
- Block alternatives: Firm pillow, folded towel or blanket or books.
- Strap alternatives: Robe tie, belt, scarf or towel.
- Bolster alternative: 1-2 firm bed pillows.
- Don’t forget any layers you might need to be comfortable & of course your Grampians Wellbeing Eye Pillow to block out the world during savasana!
