What is Yoga?

WITH TIPI YOGA

Yoga was developed more than 5,000 years ago in India as a comprehensive system for well being on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Translated from the ancient language of Sankrit as 'to unite' or 'yolk' it makes sense that the objective of an ongoing yoga practice to unify the body and mind. 

There are many styles to choose from which have different foci - Yin for flexibility, Hatha (pronunced Hat Ha) for an all round practice, Vinyasa Flow to sweat, Nidra for the mind, the list goes on. As you develop your practice you will evolve from style to style, growing and learning about yourself, your body and your mind.

Yoga style guide

Vinyasa Flow

A dynamic style of yoga giving a cardiovascular workout, flowing through poses with breath.

Not recommended for complete beginners.

Beginner Vinyasa Flow

A soft introduction into Vinyasa Flow Yoga - a dynamic style of yoga giving a cardiovascular workout, flowing through poses with breath but slowed and toned down for beginners.

Hatha

A gentle practice focusing on building a strong yogic foundation, suitable for all levels.

Yin

Targeting the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and joints of the hips, pelvis and lower spine, this slow but effective style includes longer asana holds to allow the body to deepen into poses and stretches.

Restorative

Gentle, relaxing yoga. With the use of blankets and bolsters restorative yoga gives you the chance to take some time out, whether relaxing aching muscles or simply unwinding after a stressful week. Restorative yoga leads to increased flexibility and strength – yet you don’t even notice it happening! Socks and layered clothing is recommended.

Super Slow Yoga

A mixture of Yin yoga, Restorative yoga, slow Hatha yoga with a sprinkling of guided meditations and yoga nidra, topped with a little Thai massage. 'Silent' classes to work the mind.

Aerial Yoga

Yoga that takes place in a swing, or hammock, elevated from the ground by straps attached to the ceiling. Classes can be restorative, dynamic or similar to silks (advanced). As a standard class progresses you come from sitting on the hammock performing simple stretches, to hanging completely upside down (inverting is the proper terminology for this). This might appear a little acrobatic – but it could be exactly what you need to shake up your usual yoga routine – and your daily life. Inversions are incredibly good for your brain and body (though do let the teacher know of any heart problems or high blood pressure). And bare in mind before you click off of this page having ruled out Aerial for good that the first inversion you will learn your upper body will be entirely in contact with the floor (a shoulder stand)!

Yoga for Children

"Children feel increasingly stressed and overworked often with few ways of being able to counter the demands that arise in their lives. It's more important than ever for children to have an outlet to breathe, to become aware of their body in a non-competitive environment, and to relax and have fun. When a child is encouraged to take breaks and find calm, they’re better able to reach their potential at school and to live a more fulfilling personal life.
Through practising yoga children learn to focus, concentrate and develop patience, as well as building strength, balance and flexibility. And within the yoga class environment they learn that it’s safe to express themselves."

Yin and Yang

Yin targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and joints of the hips, pelvis and lower spine, this slow but effective style includes longer asana holds to allow the body to deepen into poses and stretches. Yang is very dynamic yoga giving a cardiovascular workout as well as increasing strength and balance. The class is split down the middle between the two styles and lasts 60 minutes in total.

Yoga Nidra

 With the aim of relaxing all tension, clearing and training the mind and counteracting a stressful, fast paced western lifestyle, Yoga Nidra is a state of ultimate relaxation through a guided mediation.

Core Power Yoga

A tough workout incorporating sun salutations, inversions and arm balances and most importantly core work – asanas will be held for longer and you will be encouraged to challenge yourself. Intermediate yogi level. 90 minutes.
