Styles of Yoga

We offer a variety of styles of yoga. Unless specified, classes are open to all levels of practitioners. Each class is led by an experienced yoga teacher, and supported by an assistant. This ensures best-quality class and a low student-teacher ratio.

Simon&BiancaGoaYoga Synergy

Yoga Synergy, established in 1984, by physiotherapists Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss, teaches traditional Hatha Yoga, but is founded upon a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology and modern science. Yoga Synergy is safe for the modern body across all fitness levels. It is available to beginners and easily modified for those with injuries, but still challenging enough for those who practice more regularly or more experienced.

Vinyasa Yoga1G2A0613

This dynamic style of yoga, popularised in the West, has its roots in Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’ Ashtanga Yoga system. Movement from one posture to the next is linked by breath. It is the focus on learning good-quality breathing during asana practice that links our bodies and minds, bringing about a clear focus and calm mind.

There is no set sequence, and the style of instruction varies from teacher to teacher, giving you variety in your practice. Our aim at ReUnion is to ensure that the Vinyasa Yoga classes remain rooted in sound anatomical and physiological principles, so that sequences open the body in a way that promotes a calm and replenishing practice.

 

skandasanaBudokon Yoga

Budokon Yoga is a style of yoga codified and popularised by martial art and yoga master Cameron Shayne beginning in 2001. The techniques are learned through repetition and precision, the emphasis being on the transitions from posture to posture, rather than holding the postures. You will gain muscular strength, cardiovascular stamina as well as joint mobility.

 

 

Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Classes

Beginner classes are open to all levels of practitioners and focus on the fundamentals of hatha yoga postures, correct breathing and functional alignment. These are taught steadily and at the pace of the students in the class – there is no hurry. It’s ideal, if possible, for all new students, to join the beginner classes. This will provide you with a sound foundation for your at-home and all-levels yoga practice.

Intermediate classes are open to all levels of practitioners and introduce the “upgrade” of more basic yoga postures. Again, the focus is on building the fundamentals of intermediate postures through functional alignment, correct breathing and mental focus. Come along, experiment a little and have some fun. There are plenty of props available. If you feel the upgrade is not for you, the teacher always provides easier modifications for the more complex postures.

Advanced classes Advanced classes are open to intermediate to advancing students, and are not recommended for folks who are new to yoga asana practice.  Here we work with the fundamentals of intermediate and advanced yoga postures in a playful and light setting, experimenting and learning.  Come along if you are up for fun and pushing your boundaries a little.
