YOGA & PILATES CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Yoga and Pilates classes held in W12 Shepherds Bush:

Those who practice Yoga and Pilates regularly are less anxious and more resistant to stress. Tone the whole body, build strength and stamina, improve flexibility and suppleness, increase energy levels, improve breathing, concentration and bring clarity and stability to your mind and strengthen the immune system. Complete forms of exercise that connect the body to the mind and self, achieving balanced development and harmony.

Pilates is a body conditioning and control method targeting core postural muscles, to build strength from the inside out. Pilates is designed to rebalance the body, bringing it into correct alignment, improving posture and body function. A great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension with its slow, controlled approach creating sustained long term results. It is especially recommended by medical specialists for back problems and for office workers who spend extended periods seated, using a computer and phone. “In ten sessions you’ll feel the difference, in twenty you’ll see the difference and in thirty you’ll have a new body” Joseph Pilates. Our teachers are usually either Body Control Pilates or Pilates Institute trained. Post-natal Pilates is also available ... email or call the centre to discuss which class would be ideal for you postnatal.

Hatha Yoga - Hatha is the generic term for all yoga. It translates as Sun-Moon, representing the male/female energy of the body. It is often a slower practice, ideally suited as a Beginners Yoga class. Incorporates restorative yoga and a longer Savasana (lay down asana/posture) meditation session at the end for complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.

>>view current schedule<<

Dynamic Hatha Yoga - A more energetic form of yoga. Focusing on building strength, flexibility and alignment, balancing the two energies in the body yin and yang. A fantastic was to start or end any day. Suitable for all levels of ability.

>>view current schedule<<

Dynamic Yoga (vinyasa flow) incorporates the precision of Iyengar with the energy of Ashtanga, synchronising breath and movement in a seamless flow. Each posture is linked in a fluid manner with poses modified to suit the needs of the individual. This is a higher energy yoga to improve muscle tone and definition, alleviate stress and tension or increases core strength and fitness / stamina for specific sports. Those participants prefering an incorporated Ashtanga style are recommended to join this category of class. We do not currently hold any pure Ashtanga classes as the Vinyasa flow style is increasingly popular. Tuesday evening and Saturday Yoga classes incorporates Jivamukti Yoga as the teacher Maria Hipler is an outstanding and popular international Jivamukti Yoga teacher.

Iyengar Yoga is a systematic, safe and accessible approach that emphasizes correct alignment while developing strength, stamina, flexibility and balance. This course covers the twelve classic Asanas (postures), yoga breathing techniques (pranayama), relaxation and other basic postures. The course is suitable for complete beginners, or for those who have done some yoga and are out of practice, or an excellent ‘back to basics’ for the more advanced.

Chi Yoga This class will bring you back to the original intention of yoga – mainly an inward focus, breathing, asana, yoga postures and chi (energy) movements to connect within body and quiten the mind. “In the attitude of silence, the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.” Mahatma Gandhi. This chi-gong inspired yoga is an inward journey in ‘stilling’ the wandering mind, thus allowing the muscle tissue to expand the consciousness. It is a way of entering the body’s internal conversation, consciously intervening in its biochemical interaction. Through pranayamic “breathing” we teach the mind to reconnect with the body and to systematically dismantle the egotism which distorts our view of the world, letting go of self-manufactured obsessions that impede our spiritual evolution. Excellent for letting go of work-related stress.

NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE OF YOGA IS REQUIRED.

Chi Gong / Qi Gong teaches you how to better manage your 'energy' Similarly to electricity - we know electricity is 'real' because when we turn on a switch the light or power goes ON. However scientists don't yet fully understand exactly how electricity really DOES work - but we all know it DOES! This is the same for our own personal 'energy' management. Chi Gong reveals how to notice, feel, move and manage your energy within and outside of your 'self'. This awareness enables you to be more pro-active with releasing unproductive / stale energy, building up your own inner energy and attracting more of it. This awareness makes a NOTICEABLE difference to your daily 'quality of life', active energy levels, vitality and promotes increased endorphins - the 'feel good' chemicals that create feelings of happiness.

SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS OF FITNESS. NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE OF YOGA or CHI-GONG IS REQUIRED.
