Did you know Yoga is one of the simplest forms of exercise you can do to improve your health, mind, and body.
Research shows that adding this ancient practice into your lifestyle can help boost your brain and heart health as well as increasing body strength and flexibility.

GENTLE STYLES

Classes start with supportive and safe postures to bring awareness to stability, where the focus is to maintain the quality of the breath. This cultivates a meditative quality to the yoga practice.

 

These classes also contain everyday movements and balance postures to help bring awareness to your body, how it moves and what you can do to improve your personal health and well-being requirements.

MEAN MONDAY

A strong class focussing on mobility, strength, stability, and wholistic body awareness.

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with asanas that are held for longer periods of time. For beginners, asanas may be held from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterised by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath.  Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga. It is sometimes confused with “power yoga“.

 

Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures and no two classes are ever alike.  

 

The variable nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to develop a more balanced body as well as prevent repetitive motion injuries that can happen if you are always doing the same thing every day.

 

As a philosophy, Vinyasa recognizes the temporary nature of things.  We enter into a posture, are there for a while and then leave.

You will be guided through a series of warmups, movements and postures.

Vinyasa classes use the linking together of movement and breath to create a ‘vinyasa flow.’ Shala Om Yoga classes utilise poses from Ashtanga and other yoga styles. Every class will be different because the postures can be put in any order. These classes cultivate balance, flexibility, strength, and awareness.  

These fun and engaging classes teaches the fundamentals of Vinyasa Yoga including sun salutations, standing poses, balancing postures, seated and reclining poses, backbends, and core isolation.

Special emphasis is placed on moving in and out of postures safely. You will learn the correct alignment for integral poses and how to connect these poses to the breath. These classes are a great preparation for the Mean Monday and blended Ashtanga practice.  Come along and discover just how good yoga can make you feel!

STRONG BLENDED ASHTANGA PRACTICE

Building on the flow classes and incorporating Ashtanga asana and sequencing.  This 90 minute class captures the essence of the Primary series and much more.  Postures are broken down step by step to assist and understand the requirements to safely develop your practice.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative Yoga is the practice of asanas, each held for longer than in conventional classes, often with the support of props such as folded blankets, to relax the body.

HATHA YOGA

Hatha yoga is the branch of yoga that typically represents yoga in general terms. The practice involves breath, body, and mind, and Sally's classes will generally last 60 - 70 minutes of breathing, yoga poses, and meditation.

In Sanskrit, Hatha means force.

Hatha yoga breathing techniques, can be traced back to the 1st Century in both Buddhist and Hindu texts, but it was another 1,000 years before the use of yoga postures, or asanas (postures), and breath control was recorded as a way to enhance vital energy.

“Yoga is a mirror to look at ourselves from within.”
