Dynamic Yoga Classes in Brighton
A stronger style yoga, often pacier. Suitable for those with experience, or good levels of fitness and body awareness.
Strong Vinyasa Flow – Tuesdays 5.45pm – 7.15pm
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a playful and physical form of yoga that will lift your spirits and energy levels while increasing flexibility, focus, strength and balance. The breath is the key element in the flowing sequence of postures, allowing you to connect with your body, mind and soul in a way that is nourishing, detoxifying and strengthening.
An intermediate Vinyasa Flow class unfolds into a rhythm, with fluid transitions, finding your edge between challenge and surrendering. While gracefully experimenting with some more advanced postures or options to take your practice a step further, this class will empower and invigorate you. Playful and unwinding at the same time, movement with a clear intention to open up the body and go home with a relaxed and meditative mind.
These classes are not suitable for absolute beginners, as the sequences are a little stronger and more challenging and require a basic understanding of the main yoga poses and their alignment.
Although these classes are invigorating, they are an invitation to work with your body and energy as they are now. So more than obtaining the perfect pose, the real practice lies in the development of transformative qualities such as acceptance, surrendering and expanding your personal boundaries, creating value on and off the mat.

Power Hatha Yoga and Tibetan Singing Bowls – Fridays 6.30pm – 8.00pm
These classes focus on the Hatha system of Asanas or postures and include yogic philosophy, meditation, pranayama, mantras, mudras and the force of the sun and the calmness of the moon to create balance and to relax the body and mind.
The lessons have a Sankalpa each week to connect with your own Shakti or life force, we work on strengthening the core with the fire of some asanas and others will be slow holding them for a longer period of time, we will be working on the muscles and the tendons, giving flexibility and strength whilst drawing our senses to listen to our body in a state of meditation. There will be adequate time to recover in between poses if this is needed.
During the lessons we will be focusing on the therapeutic side of the Asanas and the correct postures in tune with the breathing, giving instructions on how to move from one to the other, the correction of these when necessary to ensure they are helpful and not harmful, encouraging you to listen to your body and limitations and therefore taking responsibility.
At the end of the class there is a meditation with Nada Yoga using Tibetan Singing Bowls, their healing sound and vibrations.

Classes are fun, varied, inclusive…and maybe a little bit sweaty!.
His yoga classes explore asana, pranayama, meditation and the wisdom teachings of yoga. His aim is to create a well rounded practice that will allow you to slow down from the busyness of life and reconnect with the present moment through the body and breath.
