Come and try one of our classes – no need to pre-book!
At Yogaveda we offer a variety of classes in different styles – from gentle to more active dynamic – so that yoga can be done by all ages and body types.
Hatha & Iyengar
A series of yoga postures that are held to develop strength, tone and flexibility in the body. Developing calm and steady breathing as the yoga postures are practised is also an important feature of these styles. The influence of the Iyengar method places more emphasis on correct alignment and the use of props to provide support in areas of restriction.
The Absolute Beginners, Beginners /General, Beginners Iyengar & General Iyengar are all taught in this style and open to all levels.
Relax & Restore
A slower moving series of more passive stretches, which allows the mind and body the space to relax and let go of stress and tension. The focus on longer-holding, supported postures enhances deeper breath awareness, which calms and soothes the nervous system and helps to restore depleted energy.
Particularly beneficial for those suffering from stress and anxiety conditions, adrenal exhaustion, fatigue, illness and injury recovery.
Stretch & Unwind
A long, slow, deep stretch to unwind the tensions of the week and prepare for the weekend. Suitable for all levels. Designed to restore, rejuvenate and energise the body while settling the mind and bringing centredness and balance to the system.
Cancer Care Class
A specialised class tailored for those dealing with Cancer and their carers / support people. Focuses on gentle, supported stretching combined with breath awareness and relaxation to promote feelings of positive wellbeing.
Yoga for Seniors & Beginners
This class offers supported yoga poses and gentle stretching to bring about ease of movement in the body. The focus is on working with the breath to develop body awareness, correct alignment and release of tension. Props are used to allow stretch in tight and restricted areas of the body.
Pregnancy & Women’s
A specialised class providing support, and helping to maintain balance, through the many challenging phases of a woman’s life.
The focus of yoga postures in this class is particularly beneficial for those looking to improve their fertility and become pregnant, for the pregnancy and post natal period itself, for menstrual disorders and also the passage of menopause.
*Please note pregnant newcomers will need to contact Nikki before attending classes.
Yoga for Blokes
A class designed for men who are starting out at yoga with often stiff and tight bodies. This session is geared towards complete beginners and involves stretches to slowly increase flexibility and relieve some of the aches and pains in the body. All ages welcome – no body too old or stiff to attend!
