Beginner friendly. Every Hatha class is tailored to suit the needs of the group. On a physical level, the muscles, joints, and organs are targeted. Ava uses traditional yoga asanas, to heal, strengthen and energise the body in a truly magical way. However the class goes far beyond the physical body, incorporating the original and powerful intentions of the yoga practice. A meditation with movement, the chakras are discussed and energised, as well as a connection to the witness consciousness, or the ‘seer’ is addressed. Ava draws on her training in Hridaya Yoga: the yoga of the Spiritual heart for an inspiring and invigorating yoga practice.

۵ Yin Yoga replenishes the yin tissue called fascia.
۵ Fascia pervades every inch of the body, holding muscles, organs, joints and cells in place and nourishing them.
۵ The fascial tissue is actually a network of water.
۵ Water stores energy, beneficial and harmful, and this tissue can become sticky, gloopy (technical term) and tight.
۵ We need to practice Yin everyday, whether its yoga, movement, breathe or meditation to release the build up of physical, energetic & emotional toxins.
۵ When we refresh and balance our bodies, minds and energies, we become flexible and open.
۵ We are able to approach circumstances with clarity, joy and effectiveness.
