Our Classes

Yogic Journey classes are typically 60 minutes in length and all levels of experience are encouraged to come along and give them a try. Classes begin with short guided meditation. This practice helps to bring the student into the present moment and work towards letting go of the rolling thoughts in the mind.

Following this, the majority of the Yogic Journey class is dynamic and flowing Asana (postures). This practice increases awareness of the sensations within the body and reconnects us to the breath. Asana practice is a lovely way to stretch and strengthen the muscles whilst slowing down the thoughts in the mind. Throughout the class there is an opportunity to move into stronger variations of the postures, depending on how the body feels.

Yogic Journey classes are typically augmented with a final guided meditation, also known as Savasana or Yoga Nidra practice, which will leave you feeling calm and relaxed.
