Vinyasa means to consciously place. In Vinyasa we work to link our movement to breath while being aware of where our body is in space. Vinyasa is a heat-building style of yoga which incorporates a gentle warm up, sun salutations, a number of standing sequences, a floor and/or seated sequences and a restful shavasana relaxation. Poses are usually held for between 3-5 breaths. Roar Spirit's vinyasa classes are geared to all levels including beginners.
Restorative yoga is a gentle style of yoga where the body is given the opportunity to fully relax and be supported by a number of props including bolsters, blankets and blocks. There is very little to no muscle activation in restorative yoga - giving you the opportunity to completely surrender to relaxation.
Conducted in a studio heated to 37 degrees, yoga asanas (postures) are taught in a slow, mindful and deliberate manner, designed to build strength and create openness in both body and mind. For more information on Lydia's Hot Yoga classes visit the Yoga Corner website.
