Power/ Vinyassa yoga – works on flow sequencing and a mixture of body weighted strength building, slightly faster paced with poses held only 3 -5 breaths, lots of standing balancing and Warrior type sequencing to really tone the body, an energising and invigorating way to start the morning.
Hatha/Yin Yoga – A slightly slower, graceful type yoga, great for beginners! Poses are deep and restful and held for 15- 20 breaths, typically more seated and supine (lying down postures) to allow for easier and gradual lengthening muscle fibres and calming tendon and facial release. Perfect for a relaxing evening before bed!
