Vinyasa Yoga & Yoga Nidra
Our Sunday afternoon class is level 1 and is free for first timer at the centre. This 90 min class is divided into 2 equal parts. The first part includes the Vinyasa approach to Hatha Yoga which emphasis the connection of breath to movement to cultivate a graceful flowing practice. The second half of this class is Yoga Nidra, a long guided lying down relaxation.
Fluidity, grace and harmony
Join William Forde at Kookaburra Creek to experience this traditional modern fusion of dynamic yoga class and guided meditation in the sanctum of the yoga hall, for 90 minutes.
Learn active yoga poses to strengthen and excite your muscles and fire up the neurological pathways and energy centres. Build core, thigh and glute strength, get the spine range moving and bring pelvic control into your flow and balance work, before winding down with some mat based postures and a restorative approach to take you into 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra.
The second part of the class will be a guided meditation for you, whilst in shavasana, namely Yoga Nidra. The practice was first documented by the Swami Satyananda Saraswati lineage. Yoga Nidra is now growing rapidly as a yoga tool that people, globally are using to focus at deeper levels of the mind and maintain connection with those parts more effortlessly.
Prepare by avoiding food for 3 hours prior, and aim to contemplate a sankalpa resolve, a simple, positive statement that you feel is important for you to focus on during these sessions. We have all the blankets, props and mats you will need to get cosy, so just bring your self, less the analytic mind and let us carry you away into deep relaxation.
