According to the British Wheel of Yoga, yoga is a system of physical, mental and spiritual practices that originated in ancient India more than 5,000 years ago.

Some of the techniques include prāṇāyāma (breath control or “breathwork”) āsana (postures), relaxation, sound, and other meditation methods. Yoga is a sanskrit word translated as “yoke” or “union.” Its aim is to yoke or create a union of the body, mind, soul, and universal consciousness.

The “physical” part of yoga is only the beginning of what the practice can offer you in your life. If you are recovering from an injury, have a sedentary lifestyle, or suffer with physical pain and/or chronic stress and anxiety, the posture (āsana) and breathwork (prāṇāyāma) will be of great help with bringing the body into balance, along with meditation that will help calm a busy mind. Through regular yoga practice you will tone muscle, strengthen joints and increase bone density.

Yoga can help you find freedom from obstacles life may present to you and help ease past traumas by helping YOU understand YOURSELF physically, mentally and spiritually.

Yin Yoga

Yin is a cooling and contemplative practice. It works the deep network of fibrous tissues within the body, fascia, ligaments, tendons. This practice can help with realignment of the body and should be done when the muscles are cold. Students will hold varied poses for 3-5 minutes so the body can relax deeply, encouraging suppleness and working with the meridians and organs. This is the YIN to the YANG. YANG being the vinyasa/ dynamic style of yoga which targets muscles. Students will experience a full body relaxation following a yin session. These sessions are usually followed up with a short meditation a short meditation.

Dynamic Hatha Yoga (Foundations)

“Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.” This class is focused on building strength and experience in the foundations of Hatha Yoga. Students work to build confidence with correct positioning and alignment of asana (posture). Each class will have specific breathwork (basic breathing techniques or pranayama) that will build from class to class followed by a short relaxation or meditation. We will build from class to class, so ideally attending the whole course if there is one is beneficial. This class will energise and promote relaxation. This is a general/mixed abilities class. Modifications and variations are provided for all levels and all bodies.

Slow Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa means in Sanskrit: VIN = “to. place”, YASA = “in a special way” or in other words, “to. move with intention.” This is also a smooth transition. between asanas especially when the movement is. paired with breath. In this class you will flow from asana to asana (posture to posture) with the breathe. There will be PLENTY of warm up prior to the flow to ensure the safety of students and everyone is working within their ability. This is a modern style of yoga, derived from Ashtanga. There is no “official founder” of Vinyasa Yoga. (Fusion Yoga Studio UK 2022 accessed 2023) This class is generally for a bit more experienced student. If you would like to attend speak to the teacher prior to class and we can see if this class suits you.
