Aqua Yoga is a gentle, water based, meditative practice.
It encourages deep fascial stretches,increases flexibility, balancing and relaxing the body through rhythmic breathing exercises.
As the human body bears less weight in the water, Aqua Yoga makes it possible for people with joint pain to improve strength, flexibility and range of motion without pain.
The healing sounds and serenity of the water element helps reduce stress and relax the mind.
Each class is tailored to the group according to their needs. Often this includes pregnant students and/or students with chronic pain such as sciatica, knee injuries and pelvic floor muscle weakness
Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. Inhalation is usually connected to upward, open movements, while exhalation is often tied to downward movements or twists. (source:Yogapedia)
Teen Yoga aims to empower young people through meaningful connection to their body, mind and spirit to navigate daily challenges, learn to relax and tap into their full potential.
Classes help teens remain active and anchored to deal with the transition from childhood to adulthood and that space in-between.

Yin Yoga champions the move of focus away from the aesthetic form in the posture and encourages instead a shift to a more authentic expression of the pose, namely one that is comfortably stimulating each individual practitioner according to their own body, within their own range of motion, abilities, flexibilities, restrictions and limitations.
By recognising and celebrating the differences in human anatomy, yin yoga supports relaxation in the mind and body, whilst maintaining the integrity of the pose.
