100 million yogis get on their mat everyday, the reason is simple – it feels great, however the powerful effects on the body are often unknown. This is why our incredible I-guru teachers, create intelligent sequences that focus on undoing the daily challenges we have with our body and a city lifestyle.
This session is both active and passive, providing the benefits of dynamic flow as well as restorative yoga. Expect an energetic heat-building flow which then progresses towards longer held, deep poses, ending with a peaceful relaxation. The Yin part of the practice helps to stretch the fascia (the tissue under our skin which acts like a wet suit) and as Yin yoga typically focuses on the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis and lower spine, anyone who sits all day and has low back pain or tight hips will benefit greatly from this practice.
Introducing the foundations for both beginners as well as reminding seasoned practitioners the beautiful simplicity of yoga practice, these mindful flow sessions contain movement and active elements, developing breath awareness and focusing on functional movement as well as working with modifications for those with movement restrictions or injuries. For those new to yoga practice these sessions will make yoga incredibly accessible for you to feel the life changing benefits from the very beginning.

For those always on the go this class will help the body recuperate, soothing the nervous system and aiding sleep, fostering a deeper sense of self awareness, transcendence and mindfulness.
