Vinyasa Yoga Classes

The Vinyasa practice links body movement with the breath in a flowing sequence of asanas (postures). Vinyasa translates to ‘place in a special way’. Literally to move in a way that synchronises your breath with the movements of the body.

About This Class

  • 75/90 Mins
  • Flexibility
  • Strength

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

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.

Curiosity, enthusiasm, interest and instinct have guided me towards bodywork and yoga. I am fascinated by the human body and believe that both yoga and massage are truly wonderful experiences and can help us to find harmony with ourselves.

I have exercised most of my life and have felt certain stress relieving benefits but nothing speaks to me as powerfully as the complete well-being that I feel after my yoga practice. I delight in both the movement and stillness that I discover and I find the ‘well-being’ contagious. Yoga calms my mind and I find a deeper way of coming into my body than exercise alone offers. For me it’s the missing piece, that understanding of the union between mind and body.

I had been curious about yoga since I was a teenager where I discovered a friends mother practising. I then spent my life dipping in & out of various classes and styles, even attending pre/post pregnancy yoga classes with both of my children. 8 years ago, I met Jock and so began my regular yoga practice with him. I was immediately drawn to the style of Anusara Yoga and Jock’s wonderful interpretation of it and I knew I was hooked.

In November 2014 I had the privilege of completing my Yoga teacher training with Doug Swenson. Doug began his study of yoga in 1969, the year I was born. His style of yoga ‘Sadhana Chi’ is an evolution of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Power, Yin and Restorative Yoga with the goal being to create a holistic balance between learning & teaching, power & softness, intellect & fitness. This simple approach resonates a great deal with me and my personal practise is a reflection of his teachings. Some days I have the energy to approach a powerful Ashtanga practice and other days I need the restorative effects of a more Yin based approach but all the while paying particular attention to the correct alignment of my body.

I try to spend as much time as I can with my mat and am excited to be joining Jock to assist and teach on the Yoga FUNdamentals class. As well as teaching yoga I continue to investigate body-centred and spiritual approaches to holistic health using various massage techniques including ‘Thai Yoga Massage’ and the wonderful ‘Chavutti Thirumal’ (massage by foot pressure), also known as the dance of the Hindu god Shiva.

Find Emma teaching at Lime House on Tuesday evenings for Rocket Yoga 6:30-8pm.
