Classes offered at the Lotus retreat
Rocket yoga is a dynamic yoga rooted in the Ashtanga vinyasa tradition. This type of yoga is excellent for the morning beach sessions as you can flow through sun salutations and the postures of the primary series. Start your day feeling energised and refreshed as the sun rises.
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, powerful form of yoga. There is a set sequence of postures, each posture designed to prepare the body for the next pose. Asthanga yoga focuses on movement with the breath. Power Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga have their origins in Asthanga yoga. In the classes you will follow Series 1 (the sequence of postures set), and learn about bandhas and Ujjayi breath, a relaxed diaphragmatic style of breathing. The classes are appropriate for all levels, however those with injuries, or pregnancy should consult the instructor before taking part in ashtanga yoga.
Yin yoga is a slower form of yoga where the postures are held for a longer period of time, to help stretch the connective tissue in the body to improve circulation and flexibility. Yin helps to cultivate inner calmness and clarity and is a great compliment to the active and dynamic morning practice on the beach.
Hatha yoga focuses on relaxing the body and the mind through deep stretching and abdominal breathing.
The primary physical focus of Pilates is on building core strength to improve alignment, posture and overall strength. It was originally developed by Joseph Pilates to aid rehabilitation after injury.
Meditation has many different forms and ways to approach the practice. It generally involves a stilling and quietening of the mind that is deeply relaxing and promotes health and healing.You will experience several types of meditation, from cleansing to breath focused meditations, to help promote stillness and mindfulness. These are optional practices available over the course of the week.
