A regular and committed Yoga & Meditation practice can change your life!
Often people start yoga because they want to achieve a result in their body – Better posture, long lean muscles, improved flexibility, core strength or to lose weight and tone the entire body. Some come seeking relief from pain and discomfort in their bodies while others are looking to find a way to relax, de-stress and unwind. Or maybe they have chosen yoga to compliment another sport like running or cycling. Whatever you are seeking we have the class for you. In a short period of time you will begin to see some of the results you are after, but more than that, you will also begin to feel more connected to your true self, more confident and in touch with your own body and mind. You will feel happier and more content and as a result you will begin to make better health and wellness choices. You will feel vibrant and alive in your body and mind, finding content and happiness in your life.
We believe that the Mudita class experience is powerful enough to start a revolution in your health.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa often described as a "breathing system" is the union of breath and movement, creating a progressive flow that safely and systematically moves a student from one asana (pose) to the next. The practice combines stretching, strengthening, balance and Ujjayi breathing. Instead of pausing between poses as you would in more traditional yoga styles, each pose flows into the next, making it an intense workout. Poses are linked with push ups (chataranga), forward folds (uttanasana) and side bends. In a Vinyasa Flow class you will build strength, flexibility and fitness as you learn to move mindfully and with intention.
Physically, sweating will release toxins and re-energise your body. Mentally, the synchronised breathing helps to quiet the mind and bring you into a mindful and meditative state.
A Vinyasa Flow class will leave you feeling strong, balanced, focused and energised in your body; calm, centred and at peace in your mind.
Hatha is a gentle, basic yoga class without flow between poses. Every class will include pranayama (breathing) practices, use of hand mudras (hand gestures used to channel your bodies energy flow) and a guided meditation at the end. Hatha class is a good place to work on your alignment and to learn the basic poses, their sanskrit names, benefits as well as modifications. If you are wanting to move through a gentle sequence designed to restore mobility, increase flexibility and ease stiff & achy muscles and joints, an opportunity to relax the mind and the body, to experience powerful pranayama (breathing) practices and ease into a gentle, restorative meditation then this class is for you!
A Hatha class will leave you feeling relaxed, renewed & rejuvenated as well as build your knowledge on the practice of yoga.
Slow Flow Yoga
In a Slow flow class you will be guided through each asana slowly and mindfully. Even the transitions between the poses become like a graceful dance. This slow, deliberate practice will build a stronger body while filling you with a sense of freedom as you flow your way into a blissful state. You will learn how to deepen your breath and how to use your breath to anchor and ground your body, move energy and bring you to the very centre of the present moment.
Slow flow is suitable to all levels of students.
When you take time and slow down, you tap into your parasympathetic nervous system, your mind slows down, your muscles become supple and your breath deepens. This shifts your inner chemistry into balance and you will experience a state of peace, tranquility and calm.
A Slow Flow class will leave you feeling strong, calm, balanced and grounded in your body; peaceful, tranquil and happy in your mind. After a slow flow class it is not uncommon to experience a deep and restful nights sleep!
Yin Yoga is sometimes referred to as Yoga for the joints, not the muscles. It directs the stimulation created by the asana into areas deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. Yin Yoga works the connective tissue of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones. All the postures are passively held for anything form three to five minutes. Yin Yoga can be quite challenging due to the long holds and deep release in the poses. Yin class will leave you relaxed and restored and may assist with healing from injuries as well as improve flexibility.
