Yoga Classes

  • Yoga having its origins in India, is a discipline that incorporates physical, mental and spiritual practices. It involves more than mastering postures and increasing your flexibility and strength. Modern yoga classes usually consist of five main components including; gentle warm up, exercise, breathing, relaxation and meditation. Back to Basics® Health and Exercise offers three very different styles of yoga, which are; hatha, vinyasa and core yoga.

    Hatha Yoga

    Our hatha yoga class Parramatta is an almost-perfect fitness routine, which gives people of all ages the means to get and remain in shape. Furthermore, it helps develop balance, coordination and a sense of self-awareness. The practice of hatha yoga restores, refreshes, and heals the body of all ills. Stretching and toning the muscles, joints, and spine and directing blood and oxygen to the internal organs including the glands and nerves are just some of the physical benefits of hatha yoga.

    Vinyasa YogaYoga_Class_Parramatta

    Vinyasa yoga is a discipline that utilises postures and breathing techniques.

    Derived from hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga differs in some important ways from its predecessor. Vinyasa yoga is often faster paced, and the asanas (postures) are linked together in a series of movements that are synchronised with the breath. Much emphasis is placed on the breath and the transition in and out of the asanas. Generally speaking, upward movements correlate with inhalations of the breath, and downward movements with exhalations.

    The continual movements, from one pose to another, gives you an added cardiovascular benefit, which more traditional forms of yoga do not have. The routine practice of vinyasa yoga can increase muscle strength, endurance and flexibility, and reduce levels of stress. Vinyasa yoga offers much diversity. The pace can vary and there is no one particular sequence that instructors must follow. This flexibility allows the teacher to tailor the sequences.

    Both forms of yoga offer a range of health benefits to those who practice it, as they encompass all areas of mind, body and spirit.
