Having an Art Gallery as a venue just adds a new dimension to Yoga
This is a beautiful little boutique gallery that is very open minded when it comes to the world of art.
The Yoga session there on Tuesday evenings is truly inspiring. While placing your efforts into your down dogs and warriors one and two. Being surrounded by the Yoga inspired art, amongst other calming pieces adds another dimension to the class.
In addition, the green tea mingler for yogis before and after the session is also a great way of meeting like minded people as well as getting a good chance to “try the art before you buy” so to speak.
Well, how do you know if a painting calms or de-stresses you if you do not try it out first.
A dynamic style of yoga inspired by Vinyasa and Pilates that promotes fitness and well-being in mind and body whilst building strength in both areas. The constant flow of movement combined with deep breathing and dynamic stretches is aimed to decrease stress and calm the mind. Help detox, tone and aid in weight loss. Increase strength and flexibility to help improve general stiffness, aches and pains as well as an aid in injury prevention. If you enjoy yoga, but would like to combine it with an all round body work out and a light cardio base, then this style of yoga would be the one for you.
“It is a charity run centre that focuses on meditation and yoga. The surroundings might not be as glossy as most Yoga centres but the atmosphere is of a calm relaxing state. More of a comfortable cosy feeling.
The quality of the teaching is of a high level and there are many different types of Yoga to choose from.
Monday and Thursday mornings is a dynamic Yoga inspired by Vinyasa and Pilates. I do like this particular style, I find it a good all rounder when it comes to fitness, weight loss, detox and a destress.
It is made for all levels, you come out feeling relaxed and also feel that you have had a great work out. It is based around the Notting Hill area and I do strongly recommend a visit”.
What makes this yoga centre different?
It yoga centre houses one of the hardest working dynamic yoga classes
The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre was founded by renowned authority on Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga, Swami Vishnudevananda in 1957. He was sent to the west by his Master, Swami Sivananda to spread the ideals of yoga and vedanta with the words ‘people are waiting’.
By closely observing the lifestyles and needs of people in the west Swami Vishnu-devananda synthesised the ancient wisdom of yoga into five basic principles that could easily be incorporated into one’s own lifestyle to provide the foundation for healthy living. It is around these five principles that the activities at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre are based.
Classes are appropriate for students of all levels, including beginners. Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic form of Hatha yoga. Poses flow from one to the next, in tune with the breath. For each class, I choreograph bespoke sequences, based on different themes. I offer modifications to make poses accessible for beginners as well as variations to challenge more experienced students to their heart’s content!
Yoga enables us to be in touch with our bodies in new ways. I experiment with poses, inviting students to stretch, bend, and explore different perspectives on the world. You will develop endurance and flexibility, discovering parts of your body you didn’t even know existed! Yoga is a moving meditation, focusing on the breath as an anchor for the mind, to keep us present and in the moment.
Come to my classes expecting to be challenged physically and mentally. Expect to leave feeling like a new person! Please see my website for further info: www.carolinedollar.com
“Olga is a certified Hatha and Kundalini yoga instructor. In her teaching she combines the knowledge from various disciplines such as lymphatic drainage, intuitive self-massage and chakra balancing. In her classes she incorporates vigorous breath work, high power energy yoga poses counter-balanced with quieter restorative and meditative practices. She lectures and explains why we do what we do in the class and supplies you with a valuable “take home” kit of practices and techniques”
“This is a place for the single-minded to practice yoga and achieve remarkable results quickly. An efficiently run studio with an extensive schedule. Teachers are strong and highly conscientious. Much care and thought is put into every class. Be prepared to adapt to the yoga and the studio rather than the other way round though. There is a definite framework within which you can enjoy a very productive class, as long as you are open to following advice. There atmosphere is friendly and the ethos very hardworking”
