Yoga is an ancient and intricate system of principles, philosophies and practices that recognise the multi-dimensional nature of the Human Being, viewing the body, breath and mind as a union of these multi-dimensional aspects. The system and various techniques of Yoga work to cultivate a deeper experience of that union, cultivating higher consciousness, and a greater sense of Self-Awareness, health and happiness.
A deep and clear sense of Self-Awareness is what allows us to understand and address our needs effectively. Awareness of our Minds - the thoughts, stories, mental programs and psychological conditionings we carry - our Bodies - their functions, strengths, weaknesses, flexibility, adaptability and the conditionings we carry in our tissues - and our Spirits - the consciousness or awareness residing within all of us. Cultivating this deep connection and intimacy with the whole Self is the true therapeutic magic of Yoga.
Chloe's Yoga classes include techniques such as static holds and dynamic movements, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation. These techniques work to tune out the noise of the external world, and assist you in tuning in to your Self so that you may relax into the present moment, and rest in the naturalness of your Being. With each class you can expect a drop in meditation, gentle mindful movements to warm up the body and continue bringing the awareness into the present moment, Yoga postures, functional movements and stretches, and a final relaxation and closing meditation.

NEW! Myofascial Cupping
Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle (including individual muscle fibres) in place. Fascia does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. Healthy fascia is smooth, slippery and flexible, stretching as you move, but when stressed, it dries and tightens up around muscles, becoming sticky, limiting mobility and causing painful knots to develop. Factors that cause fascia to thicken, become sticky, gummy, and crinkle up (called adhesion) include a lifestyle of limited physical activity (too little movement day after day), repetitive movement that overworks one part of the body, and trauma such as surgery or injury. Fascia adhesions tend to feel better with movement and also respond well to heat therapy, which helps bring back the tissue’s elasticity. For some people, adhesions can worsen over time, causing the fascia to compress and contort the muscles it surrounds. This can result in hard, tender knots in the muscles, called trigger points.
Myofascial Cupping involves the gliding of negatively pressurized cups over the body with the assistance of massage cream, and be accompanied by joint mobilisation. Unlike traditional cupping techniques, marking the skin is not part of the desired outcome, and it is performed at a pressure level that is almost painless to the client. Myofascial Cupping is designed to lift and separate the connective tissues. This can increase nutrient rich blood supply to the area, while giving a gentle passive stretch to the underlying soft tissue. Myofascial Cupping can assist the body in maintaining range of motion, eliminate myofascial trigger points, and reduce restrictive and painful fascial adhesions caused by reduced or repetitive movement and injury. By reducing fascial adhesions, while encouraging optimal hydration levels in the soft tissues, Myofascial Cupping can assist in reducing the occurrence of soft tissue injury and maintains functionality.
