What type of yoga?

Utthita trikonasana (Extended triangle pose)

Liz teaches Vinyasa Krama Yoga (the art of sequencing). This is an authentic and ancient form of yoga with a direct lineage back to Krishnamacharya (known as the Father of modern yoga). The sequencing and postures (asanas) are intelligently linked together to prepare the body for holding particular positions or ‘asanas’. It then includes ‘mudras’, important body positions that are held for longer again and have a more significant effect on us. This approach, alongside specific breathing practices that gently energise the body, focus the mind, calm the nervous system and promote physical and emotional health, is true to yoga’s ancient roots.

Krishnamacharya lived for over 100 years from 1888 – 1989. He was a brilliant student in yoga, Eastern philosophy and the ancient Sanskrit language, gaining several degrees. He set up a school for yoga at the request of the Maharaja (King) of Mysore, teaching and demonstrating yoga for 20 years. He was able to undertake feats such as stopping his heartbeat. While classes don’t aim for that (!), you can experience the sequences and breathing practices that are so beneficial to mind and body.

Students can receive individual attention where needed and possible in a class but you can also book a private session to learn more deeply and apply the sequences specifically to your body and needs.
