Hatha Flow

Come and practice the fundamental poses (asanas) of yoga in our beautiful space. Our teacher will guide you safely through each pose with options, depending on your ability and preference. The practice of Hatha yoga will help you strengthen, tone and stabilise your body. Suits all levels.

Vinyasa 1

Our YIC beginner’s vinyasa practice is about breath, focus and flow. We aim to help you build strength and flexibility by moving in simple vinyasa sequences so that you don’t feel overwhelmed while you are learning. The class will leave you feeling peaceful, rejuvenated, and inspired.  The class is suitable for those who are new to vinyasa, or those who wish to slow down their practice and refine their technique.

Vinyasa: All Levels

YIC’s vinyasa class is meditation in movement. Allow yourself to be present in the moment as you flow through seamless sequences.  This multi-level class will suit those with some experience through to regular practitioners.  Asana modifications and options will be provided so that you can cater to your personal  preference and make this practice your own.

Vinyasa: Sunday Session

This is an all-levels flow class to close our weekend on a positive note and celebrate the start of the working week.  Flow sequences will aim to rejuvenate and the class will end with an extended savasana to renew. This class open to everyone from beginners up. We will move with the breath through a creative sequence of poses to open and strengthen the whole body. Options will be provided to suit those of varying ability and practice experience.

Mysore (Ashtanga)

The set sequence of Ashtanga Yoga is taught in the tradition of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, where yoga poses are taught not to a group, but to the individual, and one pose at a time. The silence of the class and the set sequence allows you to focus on your self: your body, breath and movement. Through a patient and dedicated practice, you will achieve stillness of mind combined with strength and flexibility in the body. Beginners are welcome!

Guided Ashtanga

YIC teaches in the tradition of Sri Pattabhi Jois where each movement combined with the internal forms of the practice (breath, posture and drishti/steady gaze) enable the student to engage in a regular ritual of focused movement.

In a guided class, the teacher leads the class through part of the primary series. This is a dynamic and physically demanding form of focused movement. Over time, you will build a familiarity with the sequence and poses, enabling you practice the half-primary or full Primary Series on your own. We recommend some yoga experience, but we welcome those students who are new to Ashtanga to join us on the mat!

CREATIVE


Mindful Flow (Najiah)

Suitable for anyone who wants a holistic experience of yoga through movement, breath and focus of mind. Creative flow sequences will open and create space in the body and calm the mind.

 

Embodied Movement (Vaishali)

This class introduces forms of movement that help you sense and feel your body in different ways. We will explore ways of moving that activate the deep core of the body and bring release to common areas of tension like the lower back and neck. These holistic movement patterns can also be applied to your yoga practice to help you sense your natural alignment and move with greater ease. Come prepared to inquire, play and discover something new about your body—leave feeling supple, centred and revitalised.

Yin Yang

Find calm and balance in these unique classes, which blend dynamic ‘yang’ with relaxing ‘yin’ elements. The first half of the class includes an active, energizing flow to brighten, strengthen and increase your energy. This is followed by soothing relaxation through yin postures or yoga nidra, allowing you to let go and surrender into stillness. Yin Yang classes are a complete practice, giving you the best of both worlds so you can emerge feeling refreshed and recharged.
CALMING


Calming classes are suitable for everyone, especially:

  • Beginners looking for a gentle introduction to yoga
  • Regular yoga practitioners seeking a balanced practice
  • Sports people looking to complement their active lifestyles with restful recovery and recuperation
  • Individuals leading fast-paced lives who wish to practice slowing down and being in the moment

Restorative with Essential Oils (Vaishali)

This class combines the soothing release of restorative yoga with the scents of the natural world. The oils and postures work synergistically to enhance your exploration of your inner world. Each class centers around a theme (such as renewal, cleansing, trust etc.) and uses a specific blend of essential oils—both diffused and applied—to help you dive deeper into your own experience of relaxation.

Yin by Candlelight (Desiree)

This is a soothing and nourishing practice illuminated by soft candlelight. A quiet, introspective, and often profound practice, Yin Yoga is more of a ‘work-in’ than a ‘work-out’. Each posture is held for longer than usual, allowing our connective tissues (and our minds) to soak in the full benefit of the practice. This peaceful practice is for everyone – all you have to do is show up, slow down and surrender.

Stretch

Get all those knots and tightness out of the body with our dedicated one hour stretch class. We will warm up with some exercises and then get into those areas of your body that are tight from working, exercise or just neglect! Props, support and gentle guiding hands will coax you into stretch poses to leave you feeling relaxed and lengthened!

SPECIAL


Yoga with Sound (Jasz)

You will move through a gentle yoga sequence in a sound bath of vocals, singing bowls and other instruments. Benefit from the therapeutic effects of yoga and sounds. Learn to sharpen your senses and awareness, and restore the balance of your body and mind through the application of sound therapy in yoga. It is intended to leave you feeling relaxed, balanced and recharged at the end of the class.

 

Wheel Class

Limited to 8 people only, this is the most fun that you will have practising yoga!
A wheel practice will:
  • Open your hips and chest;
  • Build your core strength;
  • Challenge your stability and balance;
  • Help you in your backbends and get you deeper into your poses.
It’s a workout that doesn’t feel like a workout!

 

Kundalini

Also known as the “Yoga of Awareness”, we practise a sequence of specific movements, postures and breathwork called Kriyas. We will chant at the beginning and at the end of class, or you may just remain silent and feel the vibrations created by the sound and music surrounding you. This class is suitable for everyone, including beginners. Just come with an open mind and enjoy the experience.

Core Power

We take the fundamentals of yoga to bring you a work out that focuses on cardio and on developing strength for your core. Develop an increased sense of balance and strength as you progress through this 4-class series.
Suitable and recommended for practitioners of all levels!

 

Back to Basics

This general class is suitable for all levels, from those who are new to yoga to those who have some experience and are looking to revisit the fundamentals or revive their practice.
In this series of 5 classes conducted on Sunday afternoons, Michelle will take you through the fundamental asanas of Yoga as well as some pranayama practice.  Being an experienced trainer and instructor, Michelle is all too aware that incorrect postures and alignment can cause not only discomfort and undue pressure on your body, but may discourage students from pursuing yoga as a regular practice.

At the end of your lessons, you are likely to find an increase in flexibility, strength and stamina.  What a wonderful way to begin your yoga journey! Bookings are required as mats are limited.
