Yoga is a Journey

Rocket yoga

Rocket yoga is about growth, it’s about change. It’s about lifting the energy up; strengthening the body, the mind, letting go of ambition, getting in touch with the heart of the practise which is the breathing and visiting a peaceful place inside yourself.

The modification of the Ashtanga series of sequences, it dissolves the hierarchy of Ashtanga Vinyasa, by bringing more advanced poses to beginners.

A dynamic practise, each breath linked with a movement, poses are sequenced around lifting the energy from the ground; arm balancing creates strength and a sense of fun!

Mandala Vinyasa Yoga

A Mandala, a circular figure representing the universe. We move honouring this creative energy; it opens us into a deeper introspection as we move and expand around the mat. It leads us into places of awareness we would not access by following a linear pattern.

This practise considers the presence of the elements; Earth when we need to be steady and stable, Water when we need to be soft and fluid, Air when we need to be light and open and Fire when we need will power and transformation.

The class will start with yin, opening to prepare the area of the body relevant to the element with greatest presence in that practise. We then move, 360 degrees around the mat in our Vinyasa, breath linked with conscious movement. Finally closing with yin, to create balance, in quiet contemplation.

It is a specifically modified version of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series. This style of Yoga focuses on the relationship between breath and movement and is beneficial for all levels of cyclist, helping improve stability, core strength and balance critical for achieving a comfortable and efficient position on the bike and it will enhance your cycling enjoyment.

In addition, it teaches us to deepen and control our breathing which will help both on the bike as well as off it – helping you achieve a grounded feeling of calm.

Meet your teacher, Vikki…

I have been practising yoga for close to 19 years, delving into deep self- discovery for 7 years, and teaching yoga since 2018.

In a world of constant stimulus, of never feeling you do enough, have enough or achieve enough, my approach to yoga offers practical tools for healthy, modern, authentic living.

In my classes, you can expect the opportunity to be in stillness, to be present and explore your internal landscape as well to work hard, should you choose to. You do as much or as little as you like, there are many options! You take the ones that feel best in your body.
