Vinyasa flow

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a dynamic and physically more challenging style of yoga that emphasises on fluid movement and breath control. In a typical Vinyasa Flow class, we will move through a sequence of movements in a continuous, flowing way, synchronised to the breath.

The word “vinyasa” comes from the Sanskrit term nyasa, meaning “to place,” and the prefix vi, meaning “in a special way.” Vinyasa Flows then emphasises on the connection between breath and movement, with each inhale or exhale initiating a particular movement or sequence of movements, to place the body in a specific way with each breath.

Each class will be different and the focus can lie on different body parts, such as hips or shoulders, or a particular movement, like circles or backbends. The focus can also be to keep a mindset of fluidity or stability. But in each class we will move through a variety of poses, including sun salutations, standing and balancing poses aiming to get the whole body involved and energised.

Moving faster and having to work a little bit harder with the body can both be really fun and a great way to calm the mind down. Vinyasa yoga can offer a great respite or act as a balancing tonic if we are living a life where there is a lot of focus on thinking and less on physical movement.

Gentle Yoga

The pace of the class is deliberately slow and gentle, allowing you to move with ease and to focus on your breath and body sensations. We stay close to the ground, with none or few standing poses. All poses can be changed and adapted if you, for example, need to stay off your hands or your knees.

By slowing down we get a chance to really feel what is going on and focus on alignment which allows for a safer and more comfortable practice. It helps improve our body awareness which has benefits extending far into our normal life off the yoga mat as well.

These classes are perfect for anyone who wants to balance strength and flexibility. Whether you feel limited by your body or are active somewhere else and want more holistic movement aimed at recovery and wellbeing.

Restorative yoga

The restorative yoga classes focuses on relaxation, rest, and rejuvenation. Unlike other forms of yoga, which may involve dynamic movement and strenuous poses, restorative yoga emphasises slowing down and letting go of tension in the body and mind. We hold the positions for several minutes to maximise restoration.

During a restorative yoga class, we typically use props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks, and straps to support our bodies in comfortable and passive positions. The poses are designed to promote deep relaxation, release muscle tension, and quiet the mind.

I, Ylva, may guide you through breathing exercises and meditation throughout the class to help you deepen your relaxation. The pace of the class is slow and steady, and the emphasis is on being present in the moment and tuning into the body’s sensations.

Restorative yoga classes are suitable for all levels of experience, including beginners, as the poses are gentle and accessible. They can be especially helpful for those experiencing stress, anxiety, or physical discomfort, as they offer a space for relaxation and restoration.
