19:30 - 20:45 Thursdays - Synergy
Suitable to beginners and those looking to develop their yoga practice beyond the simple cues commonly offered in generic yoga classes. It’s available to absolute beginners (in fact it’s an advantage to be a beginner)
Simple concepts of movement and yoga will allow you to experience the joy of “aha” moments that is self discovery of our previously unrealised capabilities in life.
Stef teaches to every person no matter their experience.
bears a passing resemblance to qigong/pilates becoming a real moving meditation while supporting muscles and joints for any body.
Straightforward mix of traditional yoga postures adapted for the modern body
Technically it’s Hatha flow, the poses aren’t held for a long time and the sessions and course begin with workshop style concepts on approaches to the spine in poses, before coming into a flow with music and instructions become less and less to allow more left brain activity & less thinking space for attention to wander.
This style is called Yoga Synergy and has amazed Stef by the dramatic changes it’s highlighted in his yoga practice in only 6 months after having formerly concentrated on Hot Barkan Hatha yoga & Ashtanga for 12 years prior. It is described as classical yoga adapted for the modern body and picks up where a lot of yoga leaves off, giving a clear awareness of progression and much reduced risk of injury and even discomfort in life.
Mats provided, wear or stretchy clothing that can move, inform beforehand of any injuries and enjoy!
With this style you can get flexible without stretching, strong without feeling tense, and it also is massively effective to bring about a state of calm reducing impulsive tendencies. This style is more consciously embedded in maintaining a relaxed nervous system whilst performing highly effective physical exercise and gleaning benefits for the immune and reproductive systems. You will certainly leave these classes feeling more energised than ever before.
Stef hosts workshops and trains new teachers for Yoga Alliance courses and has studied for over 1000 hours with leading senior yoga teachers such as Lesley Kaminoff (author of best selling Yoga Anatomy), Yoga Synergy coFounder and Director, Simon Borg Olivier MScBAppSc(Physiotherapy). Stef also had the privilege of sitting with the Dalai Lama’s teachings in India, and attending Sri Mooji’s sangha in mount Sahaja. He has also studied with David Swenson, Matt Ryan, Manju Jois and many other senior teachers & anatomists
