Yoga Classes in Brisbane - An Introduction to Yoga and Yoga Styles

If you are looking for Yoga classes in Brisbane, Knead yoga can help! We offer an array of different yoga styles, all taught by experienced instructors.

Yoga comprises a philosophy for living and part of that philosophy is centred around connecting mind and body through controlling the breath and practicing asanas or yoga postures. All Yoga Styles such as Yin, Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Yoga Nidra (Restorative) etc are derived from the same set of postures. The difference is in how the postures are put together, if there is a set sequence, if the postures are held for a set number of breaths or for longer and longer amounts of time as practice progresses. Also if in the practice of postures props such as blocks, blankets, straps, bolsters and benches are utilised.

What are the styles and which classes are right for me? As you read through the styles keep in mind that as you practice yoga your strength, flexibility, stamina and calmness of mind will improve and change. Some people enjoy taking the same classes, whilst others change over time as their needs and interest change. The classes are designed progressively so as you grow there will be a class to challenge you.

Yoga for Fundamentals

Yoga Fundamentals - Beginners Yoga Brisbane - If you are new to yoga and feel unsure about how difficult it will be then this is the class for you.
Our experienced yoga instructors focus on showing you how to do the postures correctly to maximise the benefits. Poses are for beginners and modifications are provided should you find a pose difficult for any reason.
We believe that the foundation of enjoying yoga is feeling confident in performing the postures and allowing your body to ease into the movements.

Power, Divine Energy
deeper stretch, connection, hatha

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga involves holding postures for 15 – 20 breaths or longer and is perfect for those who want to get deeper into the stretch and explore how their bodies are feeling.
The purpose of this class is to build the mental, emotional and physical faculties. By holding postures for longer periods you start to understand the weaknesses and strengths of your body, you build concentration, patience, focus and stamina.
Hatha brings stillness and allows for a deeper connection between mind and body. Whilst this can be challenging to those who find it difficult to relax and concentrate it also provides benefits that improve life in many areas. You will increase strength, flexibility, improve sleep and feel a sense of control that is often lacking for many.

Hips & Back

Hips & Back focuses primarily on the hips including adductors, glutes, lower back, and generally lengthening the major back muscles such as lats.

This sequence is excellent for lower back pain and aching, leg stiffness, tight hip flexors, tight quads, and the symptoms associated with Lower Cross Syndrome.

Lower Cross is a set of tight and weak muscles that results in an anterior tilt to the pelvis. It is characterised by tight lower back muscles, tight hip flexors & quads, weak abdominals and weak glutes. In layman's terms it creates a bit of a tummy and a protruding bottom. It also results in lower back pain and sometimes sciatica.

unwind, yin yoga

Yin Restorative Yoga

Do you enjoy a deeper stretch followed by some time to rest and unwind? Then this is the class for you.

Yin yoga works on the yin tissues - also known as the connective tissues. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load which is why we hold the poses for longer. If you gently stretch connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time in this way, the body will respond by making it a little longer and stronger - which is exactly what you want. Remember, the principle of exercise is to stress the tissue so the body will respond by strengthening it.

Restorative yoga uses blocks, bolsters, and blankets to support the body while softening throughout the practice. Postures in restorative are also held for a longer period while still being kind to the body. Ideal for people who want to clear the head and make space for the things that matter. Leave the class feeling a little bit lighter. A Nourishing, meditative class for everyone. Beginner friendly. All levels welcome.

By using blocks, belts, bolsters and blankets we take the opportunity to really focus on alignment, and let Yoga's naturally therapeutic nature immerse you. All levels welcome.
