Gentle Hatha (Slow Flow)


This class is taught by:

Mark Ashmore

From a Les Mills Body Balance class in the late '90's to ashrams in India to intensive retreats with a much loved guru Clive Sheridan, Mark's practice has ebbed, flowed and developed into a way of 'being'. Mindfulness, acceptance, kindness, joy and the art of 'sitting with' are what he wishes to bring to his practice he shares.

Martine Allars

Martine has been practicing since she was 20 and stumbled into a class to try something new.
 
Originally trained as an Iyengar teacher, then Hatha teacher, Martine has fallen in love with the breath-orientated Ashtanga practice.
 
Classes with Martine combine flow with breath and always something upside-down. Each time you step on a mat in Martine's class, you'll always have options to take each posture to the level that will make you feel better inside and out.

Asha Daniels


Trained in India under Master Teachers from the Bihar School of Yoga, Asha is a qualified ERYT 500 Hatha Yoga Instructor and has conducted classes and training workshops in India for 4 years before moving to Sydney in September 2014.

While in India Asha gained a strong foundation in Hatha Yoga as her primary practice and then moved to Ashtanga which gradually and steadily started to play a bigger role as her primary practice. She now currently follows and practices the Ashtanga method and loves the affects it plays on her teaching style and personal journey.

Helen McMurdo

Helen began practicing yoga in 2004 and was a regular practitioner of Hatha and Vinyasa for many years, but it wasn't until joining Yoga Village as a student in 2012 that her yoga deepened to a committed daily practice. As her practice continued to deepen, Helen gained her teacher training in Hatha Vinyasa yoga over an eight-month period through Yoga Village's teacher training program. True to her Hatha Vinyasa roots, Helen believes in creating some heat and fire in a yoga practice, whilst balancing strength with softness in each individual pose.

Helen's classes focus on cultivating three key feelings: strength, openness and clarity; applying a science-based approach to asana together with yogic traditions.

Gabriel Stinga Rihani

Gabriel Stinga Rihani began practicing yoga in its various forms in 2003 and in 2008 he began a dedicated Ashtanga Yoga practice. He has a background in Buddhist meditation that together with Ashtanga yoga, forms part of his sadhana.
Since his first trip to India in 2007, Gabriel has spent a large portion of time in India learning directly from his teachers. Five years ago Gabriel began studying under the guidance of Sharath Jois at KPJAYI in Mysore and after four extended study trips he has been authorised to teach the traditional method. Gabriel also spent extended periods of study over several years learning from certified teachers Rolf Naujokat and Louise Ellis.
Teaching Ashtanga Yoga has previously taken Gabriel to Sweden, Portugal, Spain, France and Germany. He is now teaching the Mysore program at Yoga Village together with his wife Nadia. He is also teaching several led Ashtanga classes on a weekly basis.
A beautiful fluid practice, Slow Flow incorporates Hatha Poses and and flows gently between poses. This class is less vigorous practice that Ashtanga and Hatha Vinyasa and is appropriate for all levels.
 
Expect this class to incorporate a mixture of Yoga Asana (poses), Pranayama (breathing exercises) and Meditation.
 
Suitable for all levels and for pregnant ladies
