Dynamic and Strong Yoga

This class is for people who want a physically challenging class with a healthy dose of arm balances and inversions and deep backbends.

About This Class

  • 75/90 Mins
  • Flexibility
  • Strength

This class is designed for people who wish to challenge themselves in a safe and non-competitive environment. Even though there are strong poses that require you to have a strong understanding of the foundations of yoga the instructions you will be given to be able to get into the ‘peak’ poses is still very much alignment based. The yoga practice is a lifelong journey so being able to do poses with integrity is paramount for a healthy body and mind.


Vinyasa Yoga is the traditional form of yoga originally taught in India by Krishnamacharya, meaning to move and place the body in a special way. The practice is dynamic, generating heat within the body with each asana linked to the next by the breath.  This class will generally begin with an asana sequence followed by a focus on particular postures such as inversions or backbends to deepen students practice.  It will finish with shavasana, a relaxation posture.

The Vinyasa system of yoga was made popular by the Ashtanga yoga system of yoga.

“Vinyasa is, I believe, one of the richest concepts to emerge from yoga for the successful conduct of our actions and relationships.” Desikachar

Had an amazing yoga session recently at Lime House Yoga. The studio had such a tranquil feel and the view was amazing. I then had an hour private 1 to 1 with Jock. I have been doing yoga for 5 years but learnt so much more. I can not wait to go back again!

Your Teacher

Jock Orton

It is said that we all come to healing in our own time and this was true for me when in 2000, I fell down a mountain snowboarding, breaking my back in four places and shattering my collarbone. After numerous unsuccessful operations, I decided to take matters into my own hands so that I might stand a chance of being mobile by the time I hit forty.

I began a regular yoga practice and as the ancient saying goes, ‘When the student is ready the teacher will appear.’ I moved back to Cornwall at the same time as Bridget Woods-Kramer, a world renowned Anusara teacher.  I did my first two teacher trainings with no intention of ever teaching yoga, I just wanted to further my knowledge for my own practice. It was Bridget who dropped the bombshell on me that she needed cover for a Saturday class that forced me into teaching my first class. I was completely terrified………but I loved it!

I spent six years studying and teaching with Bridget and have developed a style that is physically challenging with attention to posture and alignment and above all, playful. My experience has taught me to cherish the physical practice of yoga, but it is the connection between mind, body and soul that inspires my practice.  Over the last decade, my personal practice has moved towards Ashtanga and I have undertaken Ashtanga teacher trainings with David Swenson, Manju Jois and John Scott.

I have been teaching for 20 years and over this time I feel deeply privileged to have been taught by some of the worlds best teachers from a range of different schools of yoga, including Richard Freeman, David Williams, Sianna Shermann, Rod Stryker, Doug Keller, Bruce Bowditch, John Friend, Nancy Gilgoff, and Doug Swenson. In my classes I call upon the teachings of all of my teachers to best serve my own students, with a blend of the styles, techniques and adjustments I’ve learnt along my yoga journey. I am also co-founder and director of Lime House Yoga with my partner Emma and a dad to two wonderful children who constantly inspire and challenge me to be more present in the world and on my mat.
