VINYASA YOGA: Wibbs Coulson
Wibbs combines his anatomical knowledge from his former career as a nurse with a strong yoga practice. He is qualified to teach vinyasa, Ashtanga, yin and acro. You will be guaranteed to learn something new in his classes with concepts he communicates in an accessible and knowledgeable way.
HATHA YOGA: Meg Ayton-Andrews
Under the alias Equestrian Yogini, Meg has taken social media by storm and has a fresh approach to yoga teaching, taking her classes outdoors, on the beach and running pop ups at trendy café’s such as Honey+Harvey in Woodbridge. She teaches class from her own practice and you can tell her whole heart goes into ensuring you have the most transformative experience possible. She aims to connect breath and movement, focusing on how you feel & creating space in the body rather than what a pose is supposed to look like. Her gentle flow yoga is about learning how to come back to your inner self, releasing holding patterns that keep you from moving forward in life with each exhale.
Wibbs will lead you through a dynamic, strong yoga practice with modifications offered. He will break down a selection of popular arm balances and inversions to help you advance and deepen your yoga practice. There will be advanced options for the experienced yogis amongst you and gentler poses suggested for those injured or new to yoga. You will be able to work at your own level but he will encourage you to break boundaries with his enthusiastic and competent instruction!
The last 20min of class will focus on yin yoga, holding a small number of deep stretching poses to release your muscles.
The class will start with a brief meditation inviting you to come back to your body and breath. Meg’s flow will unfold, taking you on a continuously moving journey exploring ways in which to open your heart and hips. Discover where your tension lies and let her deep yoga flow unwind your tight body. Throughout the class she will gently encourage you to look inside your mind, incorporating mantras and positive affirmations.
The last 1omin of class will be yoga nidra, also known as yogic sleep, a state of total relaxation and nirvana.
Tracy Taylor from Pod Reflexology will explain reflexology and its benefits to you. You will learn the important pressure points in the feet (derived from ancient Chinese medicine) and how to self-massage to promote a sense of well-being.
