Yoga helps to bring the body back into alignment, it tones, builds strength and increases flexibility. It detoxifies and invigorates the various bodily systems. On a more subtle level it brings a sense of calm, develops focus and concentration, and allows us to unite the body and mind.
At Balance Yoga our classes are Ashtanga Vinyasa. Vinyasa yoga teachers sequence their classes to smoothly transition from pose to pose, with the intention of linking breath to movement. The intensity of the practice is similar to Ashtanga, but no two vinyasa yoga classes are the same.
Our Wednesday class is suitable for absolute beginners. Saturday class is for those with a little more experience.

This refers to the system that was taught by Guru Sri. K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. Ashtanga translates as “eight-limbed” and refers to the eight limbs outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. They include moral and ethical guidelines, postures, breathwork, sense withdrawal, concentration, and meditation. This style of yoga is a process and the postures are learned in a specific sequence coordinating breath with movement. Through following the sequence and utilising the tristhana elements of ujjayi breath, bandha and drishti, the body realigns and becomes strong. On a more subtle level, concentration and focus increase and this leads us into a meditative state.
