Ailsa gives a number of options in more challenging poses to accommodate all levels. Overall, Ailsa’s Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes are a deeply relaxing, meditative and physically rewarding experience.
This calming and relaxing class links flowing movement with the breath, while stretching out the whole body. The heart of this yoga practice is an awareness of your breath and a sense of grounding in the present moment. This class has been designed to be accessible to all levels of physical yoga practise and more invigorating poses including core work and balances will be peppered throughout the sequence as these are key for mobility in the body and the health of the spine. Each class is accompanied with thoughtfully selected music and promises to leave you feeling re-energised, revitalised and rejuvenated.
Vinyasa Flow into Yoga Nidra
We begin the class with a sequence of flowing movements to ease up space in the body and connect you to your breath. Clear out any tension and create space to land back in your body. There will be an extended relaxation of Yoga Nidra at the end of the class. This practice of Yoga Nidra invites deep stillness as we drift into dreamtime with this nourishing practice - an experience said to be more restorative than sleep itself. Nidra encourages deep relaxation in the body and lets the mind float between sleep and wakefulness, as we explore the journey inwards to our centre. You will be guided through breath and body awareness into a state of letting go and connecting with your inner vision. Once you slip into your own state of stillness, both your physical and mental body will find the space and silence they need to rejuvenate and restore.
