We offer a variety of styles of yoga at Yoga Boat. Our experienced teachers come from different backgrounds and lineages, and bring their own elements of personal style and expertise to their teaching. Where the timetable doesn’t specify a particular type of yoga (e.g. Ashtanga, restorative) you can expect a physical yoga practice, appropriate to the level stated, with a short relaxation session at the end. In a mixed level class our teachers will offer modifications where needed and ensure that you practice at a pace and level that is suitable for you.
A soothing practice to encourage relaxation for body and mind. This gentle class is designed to refresh and restore. Soft candlelight and the use of bolsters and blocks help to bring you to a state of deep relaxation. Bring a blanket for optimum comfort!
In these classes the room is heated to around 38 degrees centigrade to increase suppleness in the body and to focus the mind. You will get sweaty in this class so don’t forget your towel and water!
Ashtanga yoga is challenging physical practice. It follows a set series of postures developed by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois. Classes are taught in either a ‘led’ or ‘Mysore’ (self practice) style. Our Ashtanga teacher, Liz teaches a led class on Wednesday evenings. We don’t currently offer Mysore style.
If you’re looking for a little bit more from your yoga, then this could be the class for you. Yoga plus+ is for those who are interested in delving a little deeper. Every month we will take a different aspect of yoga as a theme and explore it over four weeks. The classes are 90 minutes long and will incorporate an asana (posture) practice, but also look at other aspects of yoga, for example, yoga philosophy, pranayama (yogic breathing), advice on how to develop a home practice or ways to integrate yoga into your day to day life. These classes are best booked in blocks of four but can also be booked on an individual class basis (subject to availability). Check the ‘Workshops’ page and Booking Bug for the coming month’s themes.
