What is Vinyasa?
Vinyasa is a Sanskrit word that literally means ‘to step or place in a special way’. It refers to the process of moving from where you are now to where you want to go. In essence, Vinyasa is a thoughtful process that helps take you to the next step.
Vinyasa increases skill in action.
By paying specific attention to each step, you become more precise, deliberate and on purpose – as opposed to all over the place! Vinyasa helps you to be centred.
Vinyasa increases mindfulness.
During Vinyasa practice you flow with your breath, you link your movement and your breath. Your breath starts just before the movement, initiating it, and the movement finishes just before the end of the breath, thus the breath envelops the movement. This practice of attentiveness and awareness leads to Meditation in Motion.
Vinyasa helps you to be safe.
Moving with your breath protects you from injury and strain, and ensures you are practicing in a way that is right for your body.
Vinyasa prepares you to go deeper.
Vinyasa is an intelligent progression of yoga postures and each prepares your body for the depth and intensity of the ones to come. The order of the postures prepares your body to go progressively deeper by warming and opening in a logical sequence of increasing intensity.
Vinyasa is engaging.
It is not always the same. Each class is unique. The practice flows, without stops and starts. For the duration of the class, our yoga is continuous, the transition is as important as the pose. We maintain our focus on smooth, even breathing, a steady, gentle focus of the eyes, and engaging the bandhas. This increases your present moment awareness and develops your concentration.
Vinyasa can be personalised.
Vinyasa allows for modifications so your practice can be individualised. We teach you how to get the most out of your yoga practice.
What is the best class for you?
If you are a complete beginner and have never attended a yoga class or if you’ve been to yoga before, but not very often or not for a long time, starting with a Beginners class is recommended.
If you feel comfortable and want to progress or if you’ve been to yoga before and are fairly fit and strong you are welcome to attend any of our All Levels drop in classes.
Yoga is non-competitive and all our Yoga teachers are trained to be able to adapt the practice for your personal level so you will be very well cared for.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Yoga?
To live in a state of yoga is to be free, to know liberation, to be serene and fully alive, open hearted and open minded. Through the practice of yoga, we learn to ceaselessly surrender to the guiding force, the eternal luminous being within. Unendingly meditating on the light in the heart beyond sorrow. We practice yoga to strip away any obstructions so we can truly know the brilliance of our own souls. Yoga is a state of union, of peace, without attachment to pleasure or aversion to pain. The yogi is free from distraction, able to be here now, experiencing consciousness without limits, knowing and being love.
I am as stiff as a board. I have never been able to touch my toes.How can I do yoga?

What does asana mean?
Asana refers to the postures we practice. In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, sthira sukham asanam means to resolutely abide in the good space; a steady, comfortable seat. Every asana must incorporate the balance between steadiness and joy or strength and ease. Otherwise, it would be just exercise or relaxation not yoga.
I am nervous about coming to a class where there are a lot of people who have been doing yoga for a long time. Will I look like a dork?
You will be fine. Yoga teaches us to not compare ourselves to others. It is not a competitive sport. We learn that there is no ‘perfect’ pose, living in the present moment is where the perfection is. This requires practice.
I am not as young as I was…. Am I too old to come to a yoga class? What if I can’t do it?
Yoga is for everyone. Every asana can be modified to meet your needs.
I really want to get fit, strong and more flexible. Will yoga be able to do that for me?
Practicing Vinyasa yoga regularly will certainly lead to higher levels of fitness and strength. Participants notice a visible change in their strength and flexibility and report a far greater sense of wellbeing and vibrant good health. This is just the beginning; our goal is liberation and enlightenment.
