Yin Yoga

Slow & Mindful

Yin Yoga is a slow, mindful practice where you are guided through long held floor poses (often 3-10 minutes). These are set up so that there is no muscle contraction or usage. It is designed to stress and strengthen the joints, tendons, connective tissue and fascia. Great for those looking to improve joint mobility and flexibility.

This grounding practice will calm your nervous system and leave you feeling nourished and restored.

Props needed: mat, blankets, bolster, blocks, strap.

Props are available for purchase at The Natural Path.

Please see Timetable for classes, courses & workshops

Yoga Nidra

The Divine Sleep

The ability to relax is essential for physical & mental wellbeing. Now more than ever we need effective techniques that can help us to truly relax to restore our inner balance & experience our true nature.

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation technique which relaxes the mind & body completely, as we move from the ‘thinking mind’, to the ‘feeling body’ & into the ‘being state’. It allows for deep rest, deep healing & deep nourishment.

As a practice, it is almost effortless, as the body already, knows exactly what to do, the true test is to remain awake & aware as you practice yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra is practiced lying down, supported with bolsters & cushions as is appropriate for you, draped with blankets & eyes covered. You are then ready to settle into the practice of Yoga Nidra, where you will be guided to move your awareness to various bodily sensations, emotions & images.

Some of the Benefits of Yoga Nidra:

  • Reduces Stress

  • Reduces Anxiety

  • Improves Sleep

  • Highly Rejuvenating

  • Releases Rigid Patterns in the Muscles

  • Centers Ones Emotional Energies

  • ‘Memorisation’ of the Relaxation Sensation

  • Connects You to Your True Self

Please see Timetable for upcoming Yoga Nidra courses & workshops.

Kids Yoga

Big souls, little bodies!

Yoga for kids is fun! It is a perfect match for their dynamic energy. Their body moves and the breath moves with it – sometimes deep and slow, sometimes strong and forceful – helping children to calm down and focus their attention inwards. Cultivating awareness through breath, movement and stillness. Promoting a state of well-being on all levels.

We practice yoga through storytelling and games. Together we go on a fun journey. We explore and practice through songs, guided meditations & relaxations.

Through their practice of yoga through play, as well as group and partner work, they will deepen their intuition and awareness to build their confidence and self-esteem.

Timetable & Facebook will be updated when classes are opening up again.
