Teacher   Karen
Location   Russell Lea
Room   Church Hall
 
 
A challenging set of Vinyasa Fusion sequences, it samples dynamic and static asanas in an organic flow guided by the breath. Its inspiration springs from the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition intertwined with DMT (Dynamic Movement Therapy), interval training, and Pilates. You will build and consolidate strength, stamina, stability and litheness, re-awaken your body awareness and clarity of mind while exploring progressive postural ranges. You’ll have the opportunity to challenge yourself and experiment with your practice, come out more confident, restored, recharged.

Open to all levels; while more experienced students can go to its deepest depths, beginners will be offered simplified variations of each pose in the flow. However, we recommend attending a Foundation Vinyasa or a Focused Movement class, if this is your first approach to yoga ever.

Slow Fusion Flow
 Rua

Time   9:30 am - 10:30 am
Teacher   Rua
Location   Russell Lea
Room   Church Hall
 
 
Vinyasa Fusion that involves gentle transitions from one posture to the next, synchronising breath and movement into a smooth and more meditative flow. Anchored in the Classical Hatha tradition but also in kinesiology and kinanthropometry, it brings together yoga asana and pranayama with modern elements of functional training, dynamic stretching and calisthenics.
An opportunity to move at a slower pace, allowing for your muscles to heat gradually with the breath that deepens, giving you time to contemplate the deeper purpose of each asana at a time.

Foundations of Yoga Fusion
 Rua

Time   7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Teacher   Rua
Location   Russell Lea
Room   Church Hall
 
 
A week rolling series, which you can join at any stage, to delve into the fundamentals of our signature flows, fast and slow, our Hatha fusion, Stretch Therapy™, and functional movement for bodies in a Western lifestyle.
The “Foundations” classes are paced and structured to increase in difficulty very gradually, so those completely new to yoga and/or focused movement, or living a sedentary lifestyle, can stay safe and feel confident to follow. Each class will offer insights into the immediate physical and mental health benefits of these practices, and hopefully provide a glimpse into other aspects of structured and unstructured movement, and the deeper transformation that a consistent long-term practice can offer.
Appropriate for any age and range of motion.
At the end of the “Foundations” Course you will be fully equipped to safely progress into all the other YogaRuka classes - and most yoga, Pilates, and functional training classes around the world - with poise and cognisance.

Hatha Fusion

Location   Russell Lea
Room   Church Hall
 
 
Stamina-building, progressing sequences designed to prepare body and mind for vigorous shifts in energy. In the spirit of traditional Indian yoga, blended with principles of ST (Stretch Therapy) and functional training.
Each of the seven sets follow a pre-defined structure that adds to itself week after week. They focus alternatively on: neck and shoulders; upper back; lower back; core and quads; hips/pelvis; upper limbs and hands; lower limbs and feet. A 15-minute breath work/Pranayama will flow into a 15 to 20-minute long “warm up”/Pawanmuktasana series, and from there into a condensed, strong main sequence finalised in a deep, 15-minute long relaxation.
This is an intense, albeit meditative, practice through which you will enhance your strength and endurance, improve circulation, mobility, and internal organ function, while working toward boosting your mind power.

A rolling series, which you can join at any stage, to delve into the fundamentals of Dynamic Flow, YinYang Flow, Stretch Therapy™ techniques, Fighting Monkey™ practice, and functional movement for bodies in a Western lifestyle.
The “Foundations” classes are paced and structured to increase in difficulty very gradually, so those completely new to focused movement and living a sedentary lifestyle, can stay safe and feel confident to follow. Each class will offer insights into the immediate physical and mental health benefits of movement integration, breath work, stretching, rolling, and hopefully provide a glimpse into neuroplasticity, motor repatterning, and the deep multifaceted transformation that a consistent long-term practice can offer.
Appropriate for any age and range of motion.
At the end of the “Foundations” course, you will be fully equipped to safely progress into all the other YogaRuka classes - and most focused movement classes around the world - with poise and cognisance.
