This class is for people who want a physically challenging class with a healthy dose of arm balances and inversions and deep backbends.
This is the traditional form of yoga originally taught in India by Krishnamacharya, meaning to move and place 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. They finish with shavasana, a relaxation posture.
The Vinyasa system of yoga was made popular by the Ashtanga system of yoga where every yoga asana has a specific number of vinyasa’s attributed to it.
“Vinyasa is, I believe, one of the richest concepts to emerge from yoga for the successful conduct of our actions and relationships.” Desikachar
In this All Levels Vinyasa class we will focus on linking the movement of the body with the movement of each breath. This Vinyasa class offers accessible shapes with variations for all, whether you are experienced or just starting on your yoga journey.
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!
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.
Join Jock’s classes at Lime House on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and Thursday and Saturday mornings.
We have studio mats for you to use, however, we advise you to eventually buy your own mat. We sell a small select range of yoga mats that we recommend/use ourselves. Cheap yoga mats are ok to start with, but you will feel the difference in a high-quality yoga mat as it will make your practice far more enjoyable. Cheap thin mats don’t offer the support and comfort that a higher-quality mat provides.
Wear comfortable clothing with layers that are easily removed or added to allow for changes in body temperature during class. Be ready to practice in bare feet. This is the traditional (and safest) way to practice. One thing that we would recommend is to wear a top that you can keep on until you warm up and that you can put on at the end of a class, especially for Shavasana (relaxation).
Yoga is amazing – even if you only practice once a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. If you can do more than that, you will certainly experience more benefits. We suggest practising as often as you can throughout the week. We have the beginner’s class on Tuesday evening at 6.15 and a Foundations class on Wednesday mornings at 9.30. If you are completely new to Yoga, we suggest starting with one of these classes and then you can add more classes as you feel more confident. You will likely find that after a while your desire to practice expands naturally and you will find yourself doing more and more.
Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga is more than just physical postures. Yoga is unique because we connect the rhythm of our breath to the movement of the body. Connecting the mind, body, and breath helps us to direct our attention inward.
Through this process of inward attention, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labelling them, judging them, or trying to change them. We become more aware of our experiences from moment to moment. The awareness that we cultivate is what makes yoga a practice, rather than a task or a goal to be completed. Your body will most likely become much more flexible by doing yoga, and so will your mind.
