Classes

Love Yoga offers a range of yoga styles and classes.

Morning Mysore Programme: Mysore-style means ‘self practice’. In these classes, the teacher works with students individually to help tailor a practice unique to them; practitioners are able to go at their own pace and according to their needs. Students are guided through a sequence of yoga poses, one posture at a time, receiving both verbal and hands-on instruction. Is this class for you? If you’re interested in getting 1:1 tuition to help develop a personal practice that will progressively improve your strength and flexibility while going at your own pace.

Flow Yoga: Suitable for all, men and women, and all body-types. This is a flowing, revitalising and relaxing class, coordinating breath and movement whilst flowing between postures. The class tends to reflect the needs of the students on any given day but tends to take a fun approach to practising. Is this class for you? If you want a general, flowing, dynamic yoga class to work initially on strength, tone and balance, and then deeply relax.

Hatha Yoga: Suitable for all, men and women, and all body-types. This is a revitalising and relaxing class where students move through a progressive series of postures, coordinating breath and movement to find stability in the body and stillness in the mind. Some time will be dedicated in each class to exploring different breathing and meditation techniques to aid complete relaxation of mind and body. The class will reflect the needs of the students on any given day but tends to take a fun approach to practising. Is this class for you? If you want a dynamic yoga class to work on flexibility and strength and then deeply relax.

Power Yoga: A strong, sweaty, fun, playful class mashing up elements of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow to strengthen, tone, increase flexibilty and balance, and try out fun, tricky postures. Is this class for you? This is a strong physical practice that creates internal heat and works on strengthening the body and mind. If you’re already an Ashtangi or regular physical yoga practitioner, have a good level of fitness and want to sweat and work hard physically.

Yoga and Sound: Suitable for all, this relaxing lunch class provides a strong stretchy hatha yoga practice followed by a deeply relaxing sound bath meditation from Allan’s singing bowls and gongs. Is this the class for you? If you’d like a short but deeply relaxing daytime class to calm your mind and de-stress your whole being.

Lunchtime Kundalini Yoga: Take a time-out in your day to release tension, boost your energy levels and reconnect with yourself. In an hour, we’ll pack in breath work, posture and sometimes mantra to tune-in, chill out and carry on the day with a smile.

Vinyasa Flow: This is a strong physical practice with many similarities to Ashtanga, but a freer format, flowing through a variety of postures. Breath and movement are woven together, and the focus is on strengthening, toning, and improving balance. Is this class for you? This is a strong physical practice that creates internal heat and works on strengthening the body and mind. If you’re already an Ashtangi or regular physical yoga practitioner, have a good level of fitness and want to sweat and work hard physically.

Vinyasa & Meditation: Strong, flowing yoga that weaves postures together using the breath to drive movement and still the mind. We work with a Krishnamacharya inspired format to maximise the body’s natural energy and work deeply into the various layers of our being. This is a fun class which is both strengthening and deeply relaxing, and we take the time to play with postures and try things out. There is a short guided meditation at the end of each class. Is this class for you? If you’re looking to develop core strength, open your upper back and work dynamically and gently to strengthen and tone the body whilst releasing tension and quietening the mind.

Yin Yoga: In Yin Yoga we are more interested in the relationship between joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons, and by staying longer in a posture we exert healthy stresses on those tissues, which brings more blood flow and flexibility to them. And of course, Yoga has always an element of self inquiry in it and with the Yin approach (and any Yoga truly) we want to explore being more inside, more still and definitely as happy as possible. Is this class for you?  If you want to release deep tension, work passively but intensely, focus on hips and hamstrings whilst working the whole body and deeply relaxing.
