Welcome to Dina's Dynamic Flow Yoga ExperienceBalancing the dynamism and power of a mindful, breath-led, flowing vinyasa style with the softness and stillness of yin and restorative yoga, this is a comprehensive practice designed to:
- increase flexibility
- tone and strengthen the body
- soothe the mind
- enhance the breath
- nourish the soul
Classes usually begin with a few moments cultivating mindfulness of breath and body awareness, followed by a thorough warm-up, releasing and limbering all the major joints and muscle groups.
We always include core work before building into a mindful flowing sequence gradually increasing in intensity, synchronising breath and movement and developing strength, stamina, flexibility.
Each posture is presented in a step-by-step format, accessible to beginners, emphasising alignment for safety. As confidence and mastery grow, more challenging variations are offered, whist accessible options are always made available, encouraging an atmosphere of playfulness and experimentation in a non-competitive and nurturing environment.
Sessions gradually wind down with a few yin or restorative postures melting into a deep and replenishing relaxation, soothing the nervous system, leaving us calm, grounded and energised.
I teach with a no-nonsense clarity and simplicity that is grounded, inclusive, refreshing and light-hearted. I try to keep it real. We won’t be burning incense or chanting, so if that’s what you were hoping for you might be disappointed.
Not a fan of hot yoga, I prefer the room to be a comfortable temperature and to use the practice to build heat from the inside.
As an ex-music journalist I sometimes like to throw in a few tunes to add some environmental ambience.
