Vinyasa means breath synchronised movement. The class is designed to link the breath with the movement in a dynamic dance between strength and flexibility and consciousness. It is called vinyasa flow because of the smooth way the postures merge into one another. This style allows for variety and will certainly leave you feeling invigorated and ignite a sense of inner peace and clarity. This class is suitable for those of us who love to move the body, not just stretching.
The beginners courses are designed to introduce you to the fundamentals and techniques of Yoga that will keep you safe in your practice. Many of the poses are broken down anatomically so you can experience in the body the technical information that you would not necessarily get in a normal Hatha class.

The class will bring relief from muscular skeletal problems, teach deep-breathing relaxation and free the body and mind. This class is suitable for absolutely anyone, any age, any fitness level.

“Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind” Suitable for all levels, Yin yoga focus’ on stretching ligaments and connective tissue.
During this class we hold poses for longer so we can stretch deeply and gently. The very nature of Yin means that movements are slower and quieter, which assists in students moving into the state of meditation.
Often these Yin Yoga Classes Perth are more profound than the dynamic flow yoga because the body becomes still, as we hold poses for several minutes. Stillness in the body means the muscles are inactive. One of the muscle’s jobs is to protect the joints so by keeping the muscles quiet we allow the effect of a deep stretch to sink into the joints. When we move we affect the breath while stillness of the body leads to quieting of the breath and quietening the mind. It is important and complimentary to balance a dynamic muscular practice.
We recommend more advanced practitioners seek to balance their practice with at least one Yin Yoga class a week.
Beginners to yoga will also benefit from having a regular Yin practice.
Suitable for all levels Restorative Yoga Perth is ideal when you feel depleted or when recovering from illness. It is also a great idea to restore your body and bring balance to the more dynamic Vinyasa practice. Yoga is about balance, not just physically but energetically.
During a Restorative Yoga Class Perth we use props to support you. For example a bolster is used to support your weight. This means you will not require the use of energy to get energy and there is less focus on stretching the muscles and more on releasing tension.
Restorative Yoga increases the circulation of the blood to key organs and the mind becomes still and lucid while you hold the postures for longer. Often in the western world there is a tendency for newcomers to yoga, to seek strong sensations in the muscles as proof of something happening.
At Yogamat’ers we encourage students to look deeper to feel the more subtle physiological and psychological effects. You will be able to hold the poses for longer periods of time than usual and the longer students stay in a pose the more key organs and glands become drenched with revitalised blood.
The very nature of Restorative Yoga Classes Perth creates the perfect setting to reaching deeply into the nervous system. The practice can dismantle chronic tension patterns, improve immune function and bring the body back into its original stated of equilibrium.
