Class Descriptions


Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga - Jnana Mudra
Ashtanga Yoga

Mysore Class

In this class, 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.  This makes space for you to have your own individual needs addressed.  The intimate setting at Yoga in Common allows different adjustments and prompts to each and every one, and makes space for individual needs. The silence of the class allows you to focus on your self, your body, breath and movement.  If you have been attending Ashtanga Basics on a regular basis or if you have a practice, you are welcome to drop-in (but still do register on our timetable)!
Ashtanga Basics
This is a small group class that goes through some of the poses in the half Primary Series starting from basics. No experience in Ashtanga Yoga is necessary although the pace is fast and some experience in yoga is helpful. You will feel energised after class and ready to start the day. Remember to bring along a small towel as you will perspire profusely!

Vinyasa Flow

Baptiste Power Vinyasa
MIndful Flow
Mindful Flow
Mindful Flow practices encourage a holistic experience of yoga through movement, breath and focusing the mind. Sessions are usually themed with a message or intention to fill each practice with meaning. Expect creative flows aimed to open and create space in the body while ultimately clearing the mind with a restful guided savasana. Practitioners of all levels are welcome as options will be provided. Some asana experience will be helpful.
Hatha Flow
This class will include a flowing sequence of classic postures that will leave you feeling supple and refreshed. We will move with the breath to connect the body and mind and help you find a steady pace that you can maintain with awareness and integrity. Suitable for everyone from strong beginners up.
Yin Yang
This is a part-flow and part-yin class that creatively combines active vinyasa and longer, passive holds. Balance out your yin and yang energy and learn to embody both movement and stillness. This complete practice will give you the best of both worlds in order to open, release and strengthen you on all levels.

Yoga Basics

In this class, we focus on breath and alignment as we work with the fundamental yoga poses to strengthen and stretch the body in a safe way. This class is appropriate for those who are fairly new to yoga as well as a refresher for yogis looking to refine their basic poses.


Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga

Introduction to Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is also known as the “Yoga of Awareness”.  It is unlike a traditional hatha yoga class.  During the class, we will be going through a sequence of specific movements, postures and breathwork called Kriyas. We will be chanting at the beginning and end of class, but you may just remain silent and feel the vibrations created by the sound and music surrounding you. This class is suitable for those who have never done yoga or meditation before. So come with an open mind and simply enjoy the experience.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga - bananasana

Yin

This gentle class will work on releasing deeply held patterns of tension and restoring vital energy. The first part will focus on inner body work to develop awareness of the body. We will explore breathing and somatic practices that show us how to listen to the body and understand where, how and why we hold on to patterns of tension. This will be followed by supported yin poses to help us release and open specific areas of the body. This session is suitable for all levels.

Yin by Candlelight

Join Desiree for a soothing, nourishing evening Yin Yoga 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.

This class is suitable for:

  • Beginners looking for a gentle introduction to yoga
  • Practitioners of more dynamic styles of yoga seeking a balanced practice
  • Avid sportspeople 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

Yin Yang

This is a part-flow and part-yin class that creatively combines active vinyasa and longer, passive holds. Balance out your yin and yang energy and learn to embody both movement and stillness. This complete practice will give you the best of both worlds in order to open, release and strengthen you on all levels.

Meditation Classes

Mindful, Breath Awareness Meditation

Mindfulness Practice in Yoga and Meditation

Paying attention means listening, watching, noticing, without comment- it doesn’t mean judging, criticizing or feeling guilty. We need to see just the way we are, not to feel buried by everything that’s wrong or to induce more bad feeling. The breathing process is carry out by the automatic nervous system, meaning that we breath without having to do anything consciously. However, the way we breath directly corresponds to our emotions: stressful or fearful states are usually accompanied by short, shallow breathing, high in the chest; whereas peaceful and relaxed states are accompanied by longer, deeper breaths centre in the belly area. Benefits of Meditation: Meditation can give many practical and spiritual benefits, such as greater peace of mind, better concentration and the ability to relax from the stresses of modern life.
