Baffled by Downdogs and Crows, Vinyasa and Kundalini?? Look no further than The Refinery Bite Sized guide to Yoga. We offer all these styles of yoga at our studios so come join us and get your Zen on!
Expect a rigorous style of yoga that follows a specific sequence of postures and is similar to vinyasa yoga, as each style links every movement to a breath. The difference is that Ashtanga always performs the exact same poses in the exact same order. This is a hot, sweaty, physically demanding practice.
Forrest Yoga is a powerful and healing style of hot yoga that gets you connected to you. It’s Yoga for the 21st Century – straight-talking, eye-opening and fun! There are four pillars at the heart of Forrest Yoga which provide the foundation for the practice: Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit.
Hatha is a challenging alignment based practice that emphasises the forms and actions within yoga postures (Asanas). Asanas are held in accurate alignment to increase body awareness and strengthen the body mind relationship. Focus is placed on balancing strength and flexibility with steady concentration as a preparation for a meditative state. The class is based on physical postures, which includes arm balances, backbends and inversions. Students are encouraged to be mindful and experience their body in a way which brings awareness to unhelpful habits and creates new beneficial patterns.
This is the yoga of awareness. If you are looking for a blend of spiritual and physical practices, this yoga style incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras. If your goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness, Kundalini yoga is for you.
Restorative yoga uses props like blankets and bolsters to support the body as it relaxes into poses over the course of several minutes. This is a gentle practice where each pose is held long enough to encourage passive stretching.
Vinyasa tends to be a more vigorous dynamic style based on the performance of a series of poses in which movement is matched to the breath. No sequence will be the same, teachers build creative sequences often to music, so it can be a more dynamic practice.
Yin is all about relaxation, meditation, deep stretches and patience. The idea is to stay in each pose long enough to encourage the body’s connective tissue, particularly around the joints to stretch. In order to do this, specific poses are held over the course of several minutes.
REMEMBER, you will have to sample few classes before finding one that’s right for you. Take our 10 day unlimited trial period for only £35 to make sure you try as many teachers and styles as possible. We look forward to seeing you. Peace, love and muddy paws. NAMASTE!
