Flow classes are based on the hatha vinyasa tradition using the breath to guide movement. Postures are linked together, with natural breathing, into a flowing sequence. Emily’s style is fluid without moving too fast so that students have time to really feel the sensations in their body. Particular attention is given to safe and functional alignment for the individual. Flow classes are suitable for all levels as modifications are provided for specific injuries and conditions.
Hot Yoga is a dynamic, slow flowing, sequence of yoga poses and breathing exercises specifically designed to be practiced in a heated room. The sequence and theme changes – this is not Bikram yoga. This practice opens, strengthens and detoxifies the whole body. The room is heated up to 34 degrees Celsius. Suitable for beginners.
Yin yoga is a more passive, slower form of yoga where students are invited to take a particular shape, become still and then stay a while – sometimes over 5 minutes in a pose. As well as nourishing the joints and connective tissue, these Yin sequences also stimulate meridian channels encouraging the flow of healthy chi through the body. Modifications and props can be used for injuries and conditions, and students are invited to move slowly and mindfully to build greater body and energy awareness. Mindfulness meditation techniques are taught throughout these classes giving students tools that they can bring into daily life.

I’ve found the yoga has helped to bring more balance and calm into my life, in addition to my body. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the combination of yoga and mindfulness meditation and particularly found the shoulder and spine work really great. I’d also like to reiterate my comments about your style in leading the sessions. It is very clear and easy to follow as well as set at a good pace. I also find the approach is positive and relaxing without being overly flowery.Ishara
