A vigorous, flowing form of yoga which builds stamina, strength and flexibility and uses the breath to develop energy and stability of mind and body. A basic level of fitness is required.

Circular Flow Yoga with Sherene Banner

Wed evenings 6.30 – 8pm
A Flow/Vinyasa style Yoga where the physical practice combines postures to create a flow-uniting the movement, the breath and the mind. The circular aspect of the practice is influenced by Tai Chi so the direction of where you flow is not from one point of the mat/space you start with. Through the practice we explore postures investigating the 'elements' and 'Energy' as well as their many directions and possible uses.

Gentle Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Shirley Brooks

Wed 8.15 – 9.30pm.

Drawing on the precision of Iyengar, energy of Asthanga and the creativity of Shiva Rea's Prana Flow, each session will combine elements of these yogic practises to develop strength, flexibility and stamina. Designed for all levels of experience, we'll finish with a luxurious period of shavasana (corpse pose) to form a deeply restful conclusion to the day.
