Yoga Classes Newstead
From Power Yoga to Stretch Therapy and Yin, we offer yoga classes to suit each and every shape, size and stature at Restoration Zone in Newstead.
Focusing on building strength, balance and flexibility, Power Yoga is a dynamic flow of poses that keeps your practice varied and super fun! Power Yoga is much more than just a physical workout: it creates energy, vitality and freedom for the body and mind.
Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices. It is a relatively gentle, slow and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed style where they hold poses longer.
In this class, proper alignment is reached by emphasising the basic structure of poses, which can be modified with props. Our aim is to understand the alignment and to gain greater bodily responsiveness, flexibility and vigour. Having its roots in the style of Knoff Yoga - an arrangement that joins Iyengar Yoga with Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - Alignment focuses on postures, meditation, and breath work, and guarantees strength building and improved attentiveness.
Elements of dance and moving meditation are key components in the creative sequences of our Flow gatherings. Challenging yet empowering, this fluid form of Vinyasa yoga seeks a graceful succession of particular asanas synchronised with the beat of your inhalation.
Stretch Therapy is a comprehensive system that includes different stretching techniques, strengthening (particularly at the end range of motion), fascial remodelling, neural re-patterning, and relaxation. With mindful practice, Stretch Therapy will help you discover and release the lines of tension in your body, move more efficiently, improve your posture and athletic performance, and increase your flexibility and mobility.
This style of yoga targets the deep connective tissues of the body (vs. the superficial tissues) and the fascia that covers the body; yin yoga aims to help regulate the flow of energy in the body.
Yoga for Lifting
Yoga for Lifting is intended to advance your mobility for the functional movements you require both at the gym and in all aspects of life. Improved flexibility in areas such as ankles, hips, hamstrings, shoulders and thoracic spine can lead to deeper squats, faster sprinting, perfecting the Olympic lifts and enhancing performance in daily activities.
Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.
