What yoga classes does Virgin Active offer in Sydney?
The Sydney yoga studios located at Virgin Active gyms are purpose-built mind-body sanctuaries for a range of yoga styles including Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa and Hot Yoga. Whilst each practice improves both body and mind wellness, and the 45 to 90 minutes classes are suitable for all skill levels, they each offer slightly different benefits.
Categorised for simplicity as Yoga Flow, Yoga Align and Yoga Calm, you can learn how to use the breath, the mind and the body in unison to increase your mental and physical flexibility, strength and range of movement.
Yoga Flow is a purposeful and dynamic practice linking a creative progression of poses to build strength and tone, and increase your range of movement and your mobility. Yoga flow is like a breath of fresh air for your body whilst your mind finds a sense of stillness through focus and discipline.
Yoga Align brings balance to your life through a series of foundational yoga poses. With a focus on alignment, you will straighten, strengthen and refine your body and mind. In these nurturing Yoga Align classes you will explore all poses, seated and standing.
Yoga Calm is a floor-based practice creating meditative stillness as you connect with the breath. Long-hold poses stretch, relax, restore and refresh your body, mind and soul. A feeling of complete relaxation, affectionately referred to as a yoga coma, is a common after-effect of this calming, soul-enriching and beneficial practice.
What are the best yoga classes for beginners?
The Yoga Align classes are ideal for beginners who would like an introduction to simple yoga poses with a focus on alignment queues, and will help develop the flexibility and core stability used in this holistic discipline. Beginners will learn Sanskrit names for poses and develop the mind-body-breath connection as they increase balance, flexibility and strength. The mental focus required has a meditative effect which can take time to master, but is highly beneficial for better health and happiness.
As the principles of yoga are non-competitive and encourage one to work within one’s own limits, the Yoga Flow classes are also suited to all levels, but a beginner may find the intensity of Yoga Flow challenging without some foundational Yoga Align classes under their belt.
What are the best yoga classes for experienced yogis?
Yoga Flow classes challenge your mental and physical flexibility and balance with dynamic pose sequences and creative vinyasas supported by prana, or breath. These meaningful classes run with purposefulness through a range of standing and seated intermeditate to advanced poses. Experienced yogis will love the Hot Vinyasa, Power Yoga and Hot Hatha classes.
What are the benefits of doing yoga?
If you want a practice which leaves you feeling refreshed, relaxed, restored and improved health and vitality, yoga is for you. It challenges the mind and encourages you to seek a place of stillness through mental focus. The body is challenged as it commits to a series of movements which require strength, control, flexibility and focussed application. Yoga is a transformative journey which both calms and energises mind and body through movement, stretching and breathing.
