“I have been attending yin and restorative yoga classes with Sasha since summer 2018 and would not consider going anywhere else! She teaches yoga with such compassion and her classes are always an amazing experience. I feel like I’ve been transported somewhere peaceful no matter what kind of day I’ve had. I cannot recommend her highly enough, Wednesday evening classes at St. John’s church have become a ritual for me.”
A deliciously deep and sometimes challenging practice.
Yin yoga is accessible to anyone who can sit on the floor & is a valuable practice for both beginners and experienced yoga practitioners.
Yin postures are long held, between 3 – 5 mins and mostly seated; combining forward bends, back bends, lateral stretches & twists. The slow stretching targets the connective tissue (fascia), tendons, ligaments and joints of the body. Yin postures also activate the meridian lines (energy pathways) in the body, which can release ‘stuck’ energy or ‘Chi’, shift negative emotional states and promote physical healing.
Yin yoga can help to cultivate a more open body, to soften and release in this meditative & contemplative practice. Sometimes we need to be still and learn to cultivate patience.
Restorative yoga is a deeply nourishing practice, which is relaxing and releasing for the body, mind and nervous system.
The body is supported by props – bolsters, blocks and bricks and involves supported forward bends, back bends, twists and supported inversions. Blankets, eye pillows and sometimes sand bag weights are applied to the body to allow the practitioner to sink more deeply into a relaxation state.
A slower paced movement based Yoga class, incorporating elements from Hatha, Vinyasa flow and a fusion with the fluidity + grounding aspects of Qi Gong. The class will include Yin yoga postures at the beginning + end. An open level flow class for those wanting to focus on alignment in standing postures, moving mindfully with the breath and often with a philosophical or anatomical theme woven into the class.
Yoga + Qi Gong Flow
A slower paced flow class which incorporates aspects and movements from Qi Gong within a Yoga Flow structure. Sasha draws on extensive trainings in Classical Hatha Yoga, the dynamism of Ashtanga as well as the softer + more fluid nature of Qi Gong to create her own personal fusion that will leave you feeling grounded, energised and centred.
