At the Kuring-gai yoga school we focus on correct alignment of the body in each posture (asana), holding the asana for a time to promote strength and flexibility, whilst breathing into the stretch.
Each of our classes runs for 1hour and 15 minutes. The class commences with a short relaxation to centre the mind and let go of the day’s events, and is followed by some gentle limbering ( vinyasa) and warming up movements to prepare the body for the stronger asana practice. Breathing (pranayama) practices are incorporated throughout the class either on their own or in conjunction with the asana’s. A longer deep relaxation is undertaken at the end of each class.
Meditation techniques and practices are also given either in the yoga class or more intensively through our meditation courses and workshops offered throughout the term.
We have a number of teachers at our school who bring their individual experience, skills and personalities to each of their classes, and we are sure we can help find the right class for you.
