Welcome To City Yoga
Rob Leadley offers two forms of Yoga
YOGA FOR ATHLETES
"The Ability to Anticipate and React to Changes in Balance as the Body moves through space"
DYNAMIC BALANCE makes good athletes better athletes. This challenging form of yoga will bring you flexibility, balance, and whole-body strength, leading to better form, efficiency, and power in your sport. Emphasis on concentration and breath awareness also improves focus and mental endurance.
DYNAMIC BALANCE is a form of Vinyasa Yoga. Vinyasa means “to place in a special way”. It is often used as shorthand for the linking movements between postures. In a typical session, you will complete many of these rigorous and challenging movements. The first time you experience this intensity, it will push the limits of your endurance. But with determined and regular practice you will develop a strong body, mind and spirit. Keep it up, and after a few sessions, you will be pleasantly surprised by how you are able to cope with the challenge.
This session can be joined without the need for a beginners course as it is primarily designed to build strength and flexibility.
Are you a runner, cyclist, boxer, swimmer or climber looking for a challenging workout which will assist you to build flexibility, strength and endurance? then DYNAMIC BALANCE is the practice for you.
Ashtanga Yoga is a unique yoga system that links full rhythmic breathing with powerful postures. Deep internal heat purifies the body whilst enhanced levels of concentration relax the mind. Internal energy locks strengthen the nervous system. The FOUNDATION COURSE will cover the fundamentals, i.e. breath, energy centres and posture work. The aim is to establish a strong foundation of standing yoga postures which will be the basis for you to move on to the IMPROVERS Ashtanga sessions. Please note that the sessions are physically demanding, but with patience, practice and persistence, Ashtanga yoga will improve your strength, stamina and flexibility.
Ashtanga Yoga has changed me not only in a physical way (being more flexible and stronger) but also helped me to be more internally balanced and therefore happier in general. Read More
