Caroline Mastreani

Vinyasa Flow yoga combines postures and deep stretching with breath awareness, meditation and relaxation in order to develop physical and mental balance, strength and flexibility. Each week Caroline will take you through a linked series of poses focusing on a specific theme, for example a particular body part, a yogic theory or a series of postures.

 

 

Jay Otto

9am Tuesday

 

The focus in Jay’s classes is on core strength and increased mobility. They aim to harmonise and still our mind and establish a balanced and healthy relationship with ourselves and our environment. Experience the unique mix of elements from the Tibetan 5 Rites, Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow yoga lineages, with mindfulness and pranayama (breath awareness).

 

 

Linda George

9.30am Friday
10am & 4pm Saturday

Linda’s classes combine Yang and Yin styles of yoga. Yang yoga is active and flowing and requires us to work our musculature. Yin yoga is more passive and relaxed and works at the level of the fascia, or connective tissue. It's in the unity of the two practices that we become more conscious, peaceful, happier and content.

 

 

Maria Ortiz

4pm Sunday

Maria takes a holistic approach in her practice, combining Hatha yoga with a bit of flow. Her background in Latin dance, Pilates and cultural performance gives her the ability to focus on balance, flexibility, alignment and strength, while remaining connected to the heart. Sessions finish with a relaxing guided meditation.

 

 

Mary Macleod-Watson

9am Monday & 11.30am Sunday

Marjari yoga is a slow, gentle sequence of postures and breathing exercises. The mind is focused on the breath, moving in unison with the body. With regular practice we improve health, strength and flexibility.
