Amrit Yoga meditation in motion is a combination of Hatha Yoga & Raja Yoga as a means to integrate action and non-action. Through deliberate action in time and space one moves into a Presence where all doing disappears; where the doer and the action become one. From this state of unity – this state of authentic yoga – life becomes an effortless flow. Amrit Yoga connects you with the ancient roots and fundamental principles that are at the core of all branches of yoga. It is a non-aggressive, non-competitive and non-mental response to the wisdom of our vital life force, Prana. Pioneered in Australia from the USA by Julie Gargano in 2005.
Our Yin yoga classes are nourishing and grounding, with poses held between 3 to 8 minutes each with a focus on floor based postures. This allows a deep release of tension in the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons and fascia) to help improve flexibility and create a feeling of space and freedom in your body. Because of its slow, meditative nature, Yin can be both mentally and physically challenging at times as well as deeply relaxing. Savor this precious opportunity to soften into surrender and passivity. Suitable for all levels, and a perfect compliment to your Vinyasa practice.
Hatha Flow is a traditional breath guided practice that is both dynamic and gentle. Suitable for all levels, this nourishing journey activates vital energy and deeply nurtures body and mind. Flowing sequences combined with held postures and conscious breath awareness leaves a vibrant feeling of intimacy with life. Each class moves naturally from flowing asana into deep rest to breath practices and finally surrendering into stillness.
