The Dunedin Yoga Studio regular class timetable
4 Styles of Yoga Bliss!
1) Traditional Hatha Yoga – The Bliss Class
Relax. Unwind body and mind and ease into this blissful restorative practice. Breath-focussed gentle movements and slow pace leave you in a state of deep rest, balance and expansiveness. Working within a normal range of movement, heart rate and breath rate, this class is suitable for every body.
2) Yoga Foundations – Focussed and transformative
This is an ideal core class for building stability, body awareness and strength. With structured sequences and safe alignment Yoga Foundations teaches the body a new way of being – tall, light, strong, and energised. All levels are welcome.
3) Vinyasa Flow - Dynamic and Energising
Power is balanced with grace in this hot and flowing class that emphasises ‘the dance of the posture’. Vinyasa Flow takes the classical Astanga Vinyasa into a delicious and playful heating, strengthening and energising practice. An exhilarating ride for the able beginner and experienced practitioner alike.
4) Ashtanga – Challenging
Known around the globe as a hot, fast and physical sequence, Astanga builds power, flexibility and stamina. The sequence is the same each session down to the littlest details and postures are linked together by the breath to create a dynamic physical practice with focussed internal awareness.
Twice a week we hold a community class at the local school. Somewhere between “Yoga Foundations” and “Vinyasa Flow”, we are open to beginners joining in to get strength, length, space and grace. These are still a few dollars cheaper than the town classes and have a lovely communal feel. Tuesdays 7-8:30pm.
Don’t know which class to try? Ask our awesome teachers!
All our teachers are skilled in adjusting postures for different ability levels.
In general from option 1 – option 4, the intensity increases. If you’ve been through one of our BEGINNER’S COURSES, you will have the tools to do the first 3 options, if not all!
Our modalities are designed to fit together – they all work the elements of yoga. We encourage all students to do more than one modality in their regular practice to benefit from different approaches.
