Yoga Nidra –

Thursday 1st February with Kate Robinson

Yoga Nidra is also known as yogic sleep…it’s a meditative practice that allows you to come into a deep relaxation and supports you to connect to your body and inner world.
You will likely experience yourself in a level of consciousness somewhere between wakefulness and sleeping as you are guided through a grounding body scan.
Throughout the practice you may drift in and out and not be aware of all that is shared, this is normal and you can be assured that your subconscious will be processing the nourishing practice as you delve into a deep rest. Yoga Nidra helps to calm our nervous system, bringing it into balance, supporting a sense of well-being and relaxation.

This class begins at 7:00pm and runs for one hour. There is a limited number of places available and can be booked in via the Vitality Yoga App. A valid class pass or unlimited membership can be used to pay for this class. Beginner Students welcome.

 

Power Flow –

Thursday 8th February with Simon Phelan

This class will explore yoga and breath and bringing your asanas into the present moment, using the senses to stay with your breath you will be reminded to listen, be aware of the breath and be aware of touch. Starting with a gentle warm up we will move into ashtanga sun salutations, warrior postures, balance postures, stretching postures and some stronger vinyasa flows , if you feel comfortable holding a side plank then the rest will be accessible , this will be a slightly stronger class but everybody is welcome and modifications will be available, and feel free to sit out anything that you are not comfortable with. Using asanas to invigorate the body to come to a place of stillness in the mind , the last 15 minutes will be in savasana chanting Om, and using a singing bowl to truly let go.
Beginner students please call before booking to gauge suitability.
This class begins at 7:00pm and runs for one hour. There is a limited number of places available and can be booked in via the Vitality Yoga App. A valid class pass or unlimited membership can be used to pay for this class.
