Yoga at Brighton Buddhist Centre

Yoga is a traditional spiritual practice for uniting body and mind, through the practice of physical postures known as 'Asanas' combined with awareness of the breath.

Regular practice of Yoga releases tensions in the body and can lead to overall improvements in health and well-being including increased flexibility, strength and sensitivity; improved functioning of bodily systems; mental clarity and confidence.

Yoga Styles

We have a variety of Yoga styles - Hatha, Iyengar , Vajrasati, Restorative and Embodied Yoga Principles, (which is more of a way than a style).

Vajrasati yoga combines the postures, breathing and meditation techniques of classical/modern postural yoga, along with innovative explorations outside ‘traditional’ postures from a conscious, subtle and energetic alignment perspective.  The classes are always suitable for all levels and won't fail to integrate the newest student whilst providing a fresh perspective for very experienced students.

Accessibility for the newcomer with detailed clear instruction and depth for even the most experienced practitioners allows for an inclusive practice which is at the heart of Vajrasati yoga.  Vajrasati draws on traditional teachings of yoga philosophy and brings them to life through an embodied understanding to truly give the student the experience of yoga/union beyond just a physical exercise, but a whole-being experience.

Ocean

Ocean

Warmly welcome to Ocean’s Tuesday evening Zoom drop-in. Welcome as you are, and wherever you are; the class is pay-as-you-can and suitable for all levels. Ocean’s classes have a strongly meditative focus, with the invitation of even a little (or a lot!) more freedom and spaciousness into our unique bodies and experiences at their heart. There is no need for yoga-specific kit (though lovely if you do have some), and where kit is helpful, items which most of us have at home are used – things like books, tupperwares and towels.  Ocean has been teaching yoga for seven years, with over twenty years of personal practise. She teaches with heart, clarity, integrity and lightness.
