In Henrietta's classes you will learn Dynamic Yoga core techniques undertaken through a step-by-step (vinyasa krama) approach to yoga posture practice (asana), breathing (pranayama) and movement (ullola). 

Dynamic yoga uses soft rhythmic movements synchronised with the breath to fully harness the mobility of the body to awaken and energise it and teaches you to release tension to "soften" completely in any yoga pose, relieving stress, while still maintaining the necessary muscular effort to maintain flow, good posture and good alignment. Muscles are toned, joints are mobilized, heat is generated and at times the cardiovascular system is challenged. 

Dynamic Yoga is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced students and can be practiced side by side. The core techniques of dynamic yoga can be applied to all popular styles of yoga.

Yin Yoga
     MB Difficulty  MB Slash MB Difficulty  MB DifficultyMB Slash MB Difficulty  MB Difficulty  MB Difficulty
LQ - Alistair Torvanney

Whilst most forms of yoga offered in classes are generally dynamic, active practices concentrating on muscular ("yang") tissues, Yin Yoga offers a complementary approach, allowing practitioners to focus on the connective ("yin") tissues of the body (that is, ligaments, joints, fascia - and also the bones).  Poses are held, as far as possible, with muscles relaxed and for a long time, typically from two to five minutes' duration, allowing the body to sink deeper into each pose.

The type of instruction given is functional in nature, focussing on target areas of the body (expressed as, for example, "how does this feel?") and largely disregarding the aesthetic aspects of the poses ("how does it look?").  This in turn helps students to leave the class encouraged by what they have achieved, as opposed to thinking about what they felt they could not do.
