Seasonal flow yoga (also referred to as Vinyasa flow) is a practice that encourages us to recognise the cyclical change of Nature and respond to the season in which we are currently living to make the most of its specific energy. A blend of yogic and traditional Chinese wisdom, Seasonal yoga recognises six seasons throughout the year: Spring, Early Summer, Summer, Late Summer, Autumn and Winter, each with its own energy and dominant traits. A high energy Summer practice when we are all full of life and raring to go will be contrasted by the more gentle flow of a Winter class where rejuvenation is the primary aim. Moving the body with a focus on the dominant energy channels of the current season, can help re-balance and re-energise the body and mind connecting us back with the natural world we live in.
Each class will emphasise the energy of the current season with a focus on synchronising flowing movement with the breath to build flexibility, balance and strength in the body. Every class will end with a period of relaxation, allowing you to leave feeling refreshed and revitalised.
Classes are typically General level but are suitable for beginners or those returning to yoga after a period of absence. Modification of postures will always be provided where necessary, however if you have any questions about the class and if it is right for you, please do get in touch.

You are welcome to bring your own mat, however mats will be available if required. Blocks and other props will also be provided where needed. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow for movement of the body. During relaxation, the body can cool down very quickly so you may wish to bring something warmer to wear for this time (blankets may be available).
It is advised that you drink plenty of water before and after class. It is not recommended that you drink water during the class itself so it is important to ensure you are well hydrated beforehand. It is recommended that you eat at the very least 1 hour before coming to class – it is very uncomfortable to bend or twist with a full stomach!
