Classes

Yoga is the union of body, mind and spirit which restores and maintains a healthy body by developing strength, balance and flexibility.  It can be physically demanding but is versatile enough to be adapted to suit any life stage or body shape. There is no 'one way' to practise yoga and it is not about being stronger, more flexible or better than anyone else, but about controlling your mind and body through a sequence of moves and breathing techniques. 

The regular practice of asanas (sequence of postures) and pranayamas (breathing techniques), work together to help control one's senses and concentration.  Camilla Campbell Yoga offers variety of yoga styles taught by talented teachers, all of which are listed below:

 

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga is often referred to as Classical Yoga and is different to many yoga styles in the west in that the order of the poses is completely predefined.  It is a progressive sequence of asanas (postures) which produces an intense internal heat, a heavy sweat which detoxifies muscles and organs.  The results improve circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.  The sequence does not change unless you become more advanced at the practice in which case the postures evolve into more challenging moves.  Unless otherwise specified, most classes are “led” classes as the teacher will guide you through one posture at a time until you know the series well enough to do self practice.

Ashtanga Yoga is one of the more physically demanding forms of yoga but each individual exercises within their own personal levels of ability so anyone can do it, whatever their level of fitness or experience.  However, if you are a complete beginner to Ashtanga Yoga, we recommend you join the Beginners Course to familiarise yourself with the asanas (postures).

Private Yoga

Sessions are either one-to-one or in small groups.  They can be a great way to deepen your practice and strengthen your postures. This ensures you progress at your own pace at a time that fits into your lifestyle.  We will help you learn to relax and reduce stress in your life while increasing your flexibility, stamina, strength and energy.  Private yoga sessions may change from dynamic to static or restorative sessions depending on your needs and goals. 

They are arranged at your convenience either in your home or at the studio and price is dependent on location.  Please note that private yoga sessions cancelled without a clear 24 hour notice will be charged at half-fee.
