Our classes are all Hatha Based, which means that they are all a physical form of yoga. Each class incorporates some meditation, Pranayama – breath work, movement with breath and a series of Asana (postures). Hatha Flow brings more challenge to the practice adding more variations to the postures. Hatha Flow moves at a slightly faster, more flowing pace than the Hatha class. There is still a great deal of time spent focusing on alignment along with awareness to breath.
Back Care Essentials with Jools Andrés. We cover all elements of spinal movement, building core strength, and general back care in these classes. A commitment to taking the whole series gives best results. Students become aware of detrimental habits such as posture, learn ways to support pain-free movement, and increase flexibility, strength, balance, and confidence.
Core Fundamentals is a hatha yoga class designed with special emphasis on accessing and developing deep core strength to help you move safely through yoga class and through your everyday life. In this class we explore the body’s potential for stability, mobility, fluidity and co-ordination, and we gain insight into how to create support for our structures from within. We work with very specific muscles sometimes, and other times you will be encouraged to find your own curiosity around movement. The goal of the class is to leave you feeling relaxed, balanced and inspired.
Functional Movement and Yoga: Length and strength. Calm and strong. Use functional movement, yoga and FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) to create a better balance in body between strength and ease. Mobility (strength & flexibility working together) is the name of the game. Teaching our mind, joints, nervous system and everything in between how to take in new information and integrate it into our mind and tissue. Practice yoga postures from a place of strength and functional alignment.
Gentle Yoga for Stress Relief (Sunday evening) Take on anxiety or emotional turmoil from within! Gentle movement, strengthening, and stretching is followed with deeply relaxing restorative poses and guided meditations and/or body scans (yoga nidra). Restore energy, learn how to respond to stress in healthy ways, develop better sleep habits, and foster self-compassion. Some breath practices.
Restorative Yoga: How do we manage stress and anxiety? We slow down, we tell our nervous system it is ok and we give space for recuperation to happen. We breathe, and we pay attention to our breath. In this class we move between gentle self massage to release and relax tissue, slow and intentional joint movement and prop supported gentle postures to allow our minds, tissues and nervous system to rest and recover.
Strength and Stability is a class for people that find that though they practice and practice they are still struggling with back pain, knee issues etc. In this class you will learn how to work slowly and with integrity while building strength so you can find more ease in balancing postures, so you can find more ease in life!
Pre-Natal Students are welcome to come to all classes marked with an asterix up to 24 weeks. If you are new to Yoga, let your teacher know.
I am honoured to teach yoga at Green Room Yoga. It is a highly inclusive and affordable studio. This studio has so much integrity, it's unpretentious, and has some of the city's best teachers. The studio is small so I have gotten to know my students well and we can communicate what their needs are and what they might need from me as a teacher. I have had the privilege and honour to be teaching some of the same students for 10 years now. This studio inspires me to grow as a teacher and a student of yoga.
