CLASS OVERVIEW

THE SOLOMON YOGALATES™ METHOD

The Solomon Yogalates™ method will help you develop your breath, postural alignment, core and functional movement whilst deeply restoring your nervous system and mind. You will learn to balance from your core with ease as you fine-tune the core body.
Designed to awaken and strengthen the subtle yet structural core muscles through Pilates based exercises while incorporating the asana (postures), philosophy and wisdom of Yoga.
This is a mindful practice that provides balance of strength and flexibility whilst catering for many different body types, conditions, age and fitness levels - it’s Yoga for every ‘body’!

The class is layered with breath awareness to deepen core recruitment as the complexity of poses are explored through the many levels apply levers and load. Recruiting core strength in static holds, slow flow movements and sequencing, foundational standing and balancing postures.
The class completes with a soothing Savasana relaxation - the perfect end to a truly remarkable award wining practise.

HATHA SLOW FLOW

Slow is the new strength! This class is Vinyasa Krama (meaning 'special placing steps'), incorporating a flow into and out of postures before a longer hold and stay.
A traditional slow-paced Yoga practice that balances the Ha/Sun and Tha/Moon energy purifies the nadis (energetic channels) bringing our body/breath/mind into a sattvic/balanced state.

With less asanas (postures) and longer holds (3-5 breaths) we find more stillness in the mind. The pace is slower than Vinyasa and faster than Yin Yoga. It focuses on the integrity of each posture with a strong and solid foundation. The class is woven with intelligent sequencing, variations and modifications and various options, mantra chanting, pranayama (breath works to purify our breath and vital life energy), yoga philosophy and meditation.

If you have an acute injury you may need to discuss prior to attending and you may want to consider trying the Yogalates™ classes as a steppingstone to this class.

All levels are welcome but the class is not suitable for prenatal clients.

YOGA SYNERGIE & MEDITATION

A world-renowned style of yoga focussed on raising life force energy through the subtle channels of the body. Yoga Synergie & Meditation is a blend of traditional Yoga, Meditation and Modern Science.

This fundamentals class will help you to harmonise all the body systems such as the organs, strengthening the energetic aspect of the body with the use of intention, imagery and visualisation, colour, held and massage trigger points for brain integration and grounding. 

Incorporating sound, including mantra, guided meditation, joint health via blood flow, generating internal heat, slow flow active movements between each asana with expansion and contraction of the trunk all initiated from the enteric nervous system.

YIN RESTORATIVE YOGA

A restorative floor-based class which encourages the quality of the moon: calming, cooling, relaxing, releasing and rejuvenating.
 
Recharging of vital life energy/prana/Qi via stillness, steadiness, physical and mental tension release, letting go, trustful surrender and introspection. Yin Yoga is an intelligent combination of ancient wisdom (traditional Hatha Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine with meridians/energetic channels) and modern science of fascia.
 
It helps purify our energetic channels, keep our fascia healthy, young and bouncy.

Nourishing the parasympathetic nervous system is crucial for resting, digesting and recovery from stress. Many props, including fascia balls, to support you with deep stretch, tension release and stable flexibility support the class. You will feel a sense of lightness, spaciousness, length and softness after the class. The class is woven with various concepts, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, myofascial tension release, yoga philosophy (yoga sutra etc), mantra chanting, pranayama (calming and cooling style) and meditation (yoga nidra - deep yogic sleep and relaxation, mindfulness meditation, breath awareness and mantra japa) and chakra/ 5 elements purification etc.
 
All levels and abilities are welcome.

VINYASA

All levels are welcome to this dynamic yoga practice linking movement with breath; the class guides students into a smooth flow of dancing their breath and a yoga posture, finding a meditative state. It encourages students to move into each asana/posture with a solid foundation and awareness. With attention on each breath the mind will naturally steady and calm.
 
Yoga practice becomes a form of art, dance and meditation.
This class is weaved with intelligent sequencing, variations and modifications, mantra chanting, pranayama (breath work to purify and enhance vital life energy), yoga philosophy and meditation.

RECOMMENDED PROPS

We supply all of the props you'll need for our classes, but if you feel to bring your own - please do! Here's what we recommend:

A good quality Yoga Matt

Firstly you will need a good-sized Yoga mat. Always try before you buy, not all Yoga mats are created equal and there are many to choose from lightweight to eco-friendly. If you want it to last then spend the cash, typically with Yoga Matts you pay for what you get so try not to go for one that’s at the bottom of the price range. if you get a great mat that will last a lifetime your saving yourself money by not having to renew it. 

A Yoga Blanket

Most people are a little unsure why you would need a Yoga blanket, well here’s why; a blanket can help and Yoga practice for getting grounded, offering comfort and much more. You can rest, kneel or lie on your blanket to give your back and lips a lift. Moreover after your last exercise there’s nothing more indulgent that covering yourself in a cosy blanket for your last relaxation pose.

Yoga Strap

If you're serious about really giving Yoga your best shot then you’ll benefit from getting a strap. Yoga straps allow you to make poses that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to do, but you will still get the benefit of making the pose.

A Yoga Block

The original Yoga block is designed to simulate and raise the floor for your practices. They can help achieve balance, comfort and better alignment. There are many shapes and sizes you can get on the market now so have a look round and choose one that most suits your needs.

Attire

The best part of beginning any new exercise is going out and buying some new attire to feel good in. Try to go for the most comfortable clothes that are also form fitting enough so you can see your knee in relation to your ankle as you need to be able to clearly see your own alignment whilst feeling comfortable.

Remember to be kind to yourself and allow yourself to let go. Take your time. Yogalates is something, which requires practice and dedication so don’t limit yourself to class time only.
