Yoga Thursdays 7:00am 26 Jan

15.00 20.00

This class starts at 7:ooam and there is no need to arrive anymore then 5-10 minutes before class begins. Please be on time as it disturbs others if you walk in late, we do start and finish on time. 

The address is 175 Garnet Rd, Westmere (but, the entrance is on Faulder Ave), through the double green doors. Plenty of street parking available as we are just past the main shops in Westmere.

Power Vinyasa Yoga

While the classes are physically intense, you will leave feeling energised rather than drained. This is the magic of Power Vinyasa Yoga at work. Power Vinyasa stems from the Krishnamacharya lineage and is a style of yoga that focuses on breath-led movement that creates seamless transitions from one pose to the next. Through a combination of a breath technique called Ujjayi Breathing, and engagement of bandhas (energetic locks) within the body, an internal heat is created. During the practice you will lift and hold your body weight repeatedly which makes the practice a powerful blend of strength and flexibility.

What can I expect during a Power Vinyasa Yoga class? 
Expect to sweat - a lot... yes, a lot! You will get a great cardio and muscle workout as we move through repeated Sun Salutations and Standing Poses. Expect to breathe and to be aware of your breath throughout the practice. Without awareness of breath, there is no yoga – you’re simply moving your body. It is awareness that generates the benefits of yoga, and we anchor that awareness via our breath.

How do I prepare for a Power Vinyasa Yoga class? 
Don't eat at for at least an hour before class, two hours if possible. 
Make sure you’re well hydrated before class. It’s preferable not to drink during the practice if possible.  After class, drink plenty of water and eat some protein or a hearty meal to fuel your body with lots of nutrients.
