Hatha Yoga Classes

Hatha Yoga works at a slower pace and works with individual postures and includes pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation and relaxation.   It is ideal for those beginning their yoga journey and who are newer to yoga or for those who want to improve their practice.

Classes will begin with some pranayama to settle you on the mat and connect your mind with your breath and body followed by a nourishing warm up leading into an energising asana practice (postures) to improve your flexibility, stability, strength and muscle tone.  Awaken your senses with a guided, restorative savasana (relaxation) to cultivate a calm, steady mind and connect with your inner-self and boost feelings of wellbeing and happiness.

Vinyasa flow Yoga Classes

Vinyasa flow is a dynamic, creative style of yoga in which the asana (postures) are linked together and synchronised with a yogic breath. This style of yoga allows you to feel the physical power of a yoga practice. When we begin to move through a physical flow with the breath our inner energies begin to flow more freely through the body leaving us feeling energised and revitalised.

This style is rooted in Ashtanga so often includes an Ashtanga style ‘vinyasa’ to link sequences – unlike Ashtanga, you will enjoy and experience a creative mixture of postures and sequencing rather than it being set. Sessions typically begin with pranayama to connect the mind with the body and breath followed by an energising warm up. A cool down is followed by a short savasana.

Amanda’s Yoga   Journey…

Amanda began her yoga journey four years ago after picking up a knee injury and being advised by a physiotherapist to take up either yoga or pilates. Amanda has always been a keen keep fit enthusiast and was intrigued to try out this new form of exercise. From her very first class she was hooked and loved the strength, stability and flexibility that the asanas (postures) created. Like many people, Amanda hadn’t realised that there was more to yoga than just asanas and began to develop a passion for pranayama (breath work) and meditation and was fascinated with how connecting the mind with the body, breath, emotions and soul could have such calming and on other occasions energising effects on the body.

As Amanda’s passion for all things yogic grew, she took the decision to apply for a Yoga Teacher Training Diploma with Yogacampus and was delighted to be offered a place on the June 2017 York intake and was ecstatic to be given the opportunity to follow her dream of teaching yoga which complements the holistic therapies perfectly. Amanda has now completed the course and became fully qualified in December 2018.

She is passionate about being able to equip people with the tools and techniques yoga provides so they can use them as a mechanism to help them deal with the stresses, strains and challenges that life can all too often throw at them. For Amanda, yoga isn’t about the destination but about the journey and she firmly believes that yoga is for everyone. What Amanda learns on the mat, she takes into her daily life off the mat and she has grown into a kind, loving and compassionate person.
