Class descriptions

Hatha Yoga

Hatha can be translated in two ways; As “willful” or “forceful,” - the yoga of activity, or as the “sun” (ha - masculine) and the “moon” (tha - feminine), the yoga of balance. Hatha is a practice that aims to balance the science of the human body through a variety of breathing techniques and physical postures practiced on both sides of the body.

Low Flow

Low Flow is practice set with a combination of yin and yang asanas (postures). This practice starts slow, and restorative, opening the energetic pathway. The class then encourages movement in all direction around the mat, from the front to the back and back again. We keep it low and slow.

This style is suitable for beginners.

Yin Yoga

Based on the Taoist theory of yin and yang, as well as TCM meridian lines, yin yoga aims to maintain our overall health and wellbeing by targeting the yin tissues of the body (bones, connective tissues, fascia, internal organs) through the application of manageable stress on the physic  body. By focusing on the breath, this practice encourages mindfulness.

Prānayāma

Prāṇāyāma is the practice of breath control in yoga. In modern yoga as exercise, it consists of synchronising the breath with movements between asanas, but is also a distinct breathing exercise on its own, usually practised after asanas. In texts like the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and later in Hatha yoga texts, it meant the complete cessation of breathing.

 

Ashtanga Yoga

Following Patanjali's Eight Limbed path of yoga, you will be led through the primary series of the Ashtanga asana practice. Ashtanga yoga is a strong practice for both the body, and the mind, placing emphasis on discipline throughout the practice. Ashtanga is practiced in the morning to rise with the sun, and to energize you for your day going forward.

Kundalini Yoga

Kuṇḍalinī is an ancient science of being, incorporating physical, mental and spiritual development. Kundalini yoga derives its name through the focus on awakening our dormant kundalini energy. Through the regular practice of sadhana such as chanting, kriya, yogasana, pranayama, and meditation, the awakening of this dormant energies begins.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a sanskrit term meaning to mindfully place oneself.  It is a creative flow, encouraging movement in the body, synchronizing that movement with the breath. This practice aims to strengthen the body and the mind through the practice of strong, slow asanas (postures). This creates a unison between the body and the mind, developing mind-muscle awareness.

Meditation

Meditation is a practice to clear the mind of all thinking, providing clarity in your life and actions (karma). In the shala you will be guided through a variety of meditation techniques for you to practice with us at the shala, as well as in your own time, should the discipline be there. Meditation is best practiced in the mornings and evenings.

Instructors

Chloe Russell

Sibongile Khumalo

Sundri Atma

Chloe's practice began in her early 20's when answering a calling to understand more about the 'self' and the human body. This led to countless hours of practice and research into the topic of yoga, ensuring a well informed, intuitive  class is led. Chloe embodies the philosophy of balance, yin & yang into her practices. Join her for ashtanga or yin in the week.

Over the years there has been an encouragement to not only keep knocking on the door of seemingly impossible asanas, but to be content in the knowledge that there is no perfection in yoga. In Sibongile's classes, one can expect a deliberate and symbiotic fusion of breath-work (pranayama) and postures (asanas) that promote both mental and physical health.

I came to a point in my earth journey where I realized that if one is to make oneself ill, one is also to make oneself well, and this is when my love affair with Yoga began. I am humbled and honored to assist people in moving towards their Highest purpose and my classes lean into the spiritual side of yoga, assisting in helping you find your inner healer and wisdom. 

Damian Dookhoo

Kirstie Tipping

"Yoga came to me in a time of great pain. I found the ability to stand on my own two feet and choose to grow." Damian seeks to find space in the body and redefine strength wherever there is a lack. As a life coach, assistance is offered to remove mental blocks and ask "Where to next?" by taking it mindfully slow. 

 

Kirstie has always had a passion for fitness and wellness.  Her love and deep respect for the practice of yoga stems from understanding the need to listen to one’s body and to move with its rhythms. In her class, the focus is to let go, surrender to the breath and to build a nurturing love for the physical form and all of its wonderful intricacies.
