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.
Martine Allars instructs the following:
Gentle Hatha (Slow Flow)
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
Hatha, meaning the balance between the sun and the moon, is a free flowing and physically challenging style of yoga. This is the perfect for those who are looking for an activity in which they can completely channel their energy. Students are encouraged to breath through the ever changing poses and can expect to feel revitalised at the end of the class.
This is a mixed level class and teachers will offer different options for those of different experience levels. Some experience is required.
