What can you expect?
Yogabliss Hatha yoga - A deep release yoga class designed to relax, de-stress and rejuvenate you at every level. Slower than a dynamic practice, but still challenging, with more of an emphasis on deep stretches, alignment and mindful breathing. A mixed level class, beginners can take advantage of the slower pace to build their awareness and skills whilst more experienced practitioners can deepen their practice. With an easy, chilled out feel, these hatha yoga classes are a great place to get to understand core yoga asanas (postures) and to consciously deepen our practice both on and off the mat.
Yogabliss Yin yoga - A slow meditative practice, focused on floor based postures held for several minutes to encourage the body to release deeply stored tension in the connective tissues. Finding stillness, awareness and presence while you stay with your ‘edge’ (the point where you are physically and mentally challenged but still at ease) helps to bring a sense of calm, balance and peace as we learn to pay attention to where we are at. Postures work on the energetic body as meridians (energy channels) are stimulated and nourished. Deeply meditative but challenging; a good practice to balance with more dynamic practices.

Essential info for classes
- Please wear loose and comfortable clothes for practice, in an area free of obstacles and refrain from a heavy meal for 2 hours before practice. Yoga can help improve your health and well being, but it’s important to listen to your body and work at your own level and explore your own limits. To reduce the risk of injury, never force or strain yourself and stop if you feel pain or dizziness and seek medical advice if necessary. For yin classes in particular it would be useful to have 2 yoga bricks (or 2 big books) as well as a bolster (or a rolled up thick blanket). Please ensure you complete a health questionnaire prior to your first class (see link on Book Online button above).
- Medical disclaimer: Not all exercises are suitable for everyone. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health professional before starting or changing any exercise programme or making a lifestyle change. This is particularly important if you are overweight, pregnant, nursing, regularly taking medications, or have any existing medical conditions. Pregnant women should not practice any twists or abdominal tightening asanas and should refrain from practice for the first trimester. Yogabliss assumes no responsibility or liability for any injuries or losses that may result from practicing yoga whether online or face to face.
