Yoga Class Schedule - Bristol

Our inspiration.
Classes are inspired by our study of classical teachings of Hatha yoga in disciplines that include Iyengar, Sivananda, Satyananda, Krishnamacharya, Scaravelli and Dona Holleman's Centered Yoga system. Hatha yoga focuses on the physical (asana) and pranayama (breath work) aspects of yoga. Hatha yoga can be powerful, gentle, dynamic and restorative. It can be practiced in many forms including vinyasa, mala and holding postures for a longer period. We are inspired by a broad range of classical Hatha practices weaving their forms and expressions into the classes.

I am still feeling the positive effects from my break. Dory, by far, is the best teacher I have had in 18 years...

Our classes.
Classes includes Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), and guided relaxation. Standing, inverted, forward bends, back-bends, sitting, balances and twistings are practiced with a different focus each week. Working with principles that include rooting, anatomical precision and alignment, 'not doing', hara (energy centre), intension, universal forces, peripheral vision and awareness, students are encouraged to uncover their own true posture.

(Classes can book up quickly so please book in advance to ensure a mat space - thank you.)

Classes are instructed by either Dory Walker or Rory Viggers

Our students.
Classes are suitable for all levels (except for complete beginners - we recommend that you enrol on one of the beginners courses), from those that have practised a little yoga through to intermediate, experienced practitioners and yoga teachers - variations are given accordingly.

Rory is one of the best teachers in Bristol, by regularly attending his classes I have been able to achieve a moving meditative experience that has inspired me to continue to grow and develop my own practise. Rory is committed to continually develop and share a depth of knowledge that continues to inspire.

Yoga Foundation Series (8 Weeks)
Starts Thursday January 18th 2018
/ 8.15pm - 9.30pm
Continuing on from practices explored in both our beginners courses and All Levels classes, we look at further principles and theory, expand on pranayama (breath work) techniques, explore variations of postures, and look at the foundations for more challenging postures (headstand, shoulder-stand, arm balances). A course designed to both continue further learning, get back into your practice and to systematically work through a full range of asana (forward bends, backbends, twists, standing, inversions, etc) with more explanation and structure than a regular 'drop in' class.

We once again start the new year with a whole day of yoga practices.

The asana work will be woven together through a number of principles that include breathing practices, 'not doing', hara (energy centre), intension, universal forces, peripheral vision, full body awareness, mantra and total attention.
