WE STRIVE TO REJUVENATE AND IMPROVE YOUR GENERAL WELL BEING THROUGH SAILING, YOGA, RELAXATION & HEALING
Lyengar yoga focuses on breath control and detail, precision and alignment when carrying out the different poses. It encourages relaxation, good posture & balance. It features hundreds of different yoga poses and fourteen types of breathing.
This type of yoga is often referred to as Vinyasa flow yoga, as it consists of different poses linked together with movement, and synchronised with breathing. A Vinyasa yoga class can be fast-paced or slow, depending upon the teacher.
Described as “the mother of all yoga” as it is one of the oldest recognised forms. It’s a very active form of yoga which includes common poses, as well as some of its own unique poses, chanting, meditation and sounds to stimulate your creative energy.
Ashtanga is a form of moving meditation and a more vigorous type of yoga. Breathing is synchronised with movement, producing an intense heat to sweat out toxins and improve your circulation. It strictly follows a particular order of eight steps, each with a fixed number of breaths and movement which help maintain a healthy heart and stabilise the mind.
Otherwise known as Bikram yoga, this type is made up of a series of 26 poses and two breathing exercises carried out in a specific order in an extremely hot room. With temperatures reaching around 40°C, it is said to benefit joints, reduce the risk of injury and increase your flexibility. Due to the extreme heat, you’ll sweat profusely meaning it’s a great component for a detox
Hatha is one of the more common types of yoga. It describes gentle and basic yoga with no flow between poses, unlike Vinyasa yoga. It is great for learning the basics and reconnecting your body and mind. It consists of six slow movements, breathing exercises and meditation, so it’s a brilliant place to start for beginner yogis and to learn effective relaxation techniques
