Yoga

Sussex Yoga Society aims to offer students affordable, community-run yoga classes, in multiple disciplines and various skill levels. On top of the physical aspect, we aim to explore the whole breadth of the yogic traditions, including informative talks, meditation sessions and spiritual practices. We hope to offer a class a day, in different styles, to cater to everyone's interests and availability. All classes are open to everyone, including beginners. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in, and make sure you have things that will be warm enough - especially over the winter months, as the university buildings tend to get quite cold. We do have quite a few mats for people to use, but of course feel free to bring your own if you have one.

For the latest timetables, workshops and news, check out our Facebook page.

Make sure to join the society (for free!) using the 'Add to basket' button on the right, helping support our activities!

 

During the 18/19 Spring term we will be running the below classes (check Facebook for up to date timetables);

Yoga with Meditation with Tom - £3

Tom aims to bring his personal practice of ashtanga vinyasa, meditation, pranayama, qi gong and tai chi into each class. The class will be dynamic, challenging and flowing, but also relaxing with a strong focus on breathing deeply into each posture, staying mindful and going inside. Each class will be around 1hr and 20mins long and will start and end with a short meditation and will include backbends, sun salutations, and a relaxation period (sivasana). Suitable for everyone.

Ashtanga with Davy - £3

Ashtanga is a dynamic form of yoga practice open to beginners and experienced yogis alike. Davy has been teaching Ashtanga for 9 years and practising for 17. With humour and an eye for safety, he encourages students to focus on improving their own practice. Davy's classes are held upstairs in the Meeting House, which is the round building opposite the library.

Yoga with Eve - FREE

A beginner's class that includes meditation, breathing, light stretches and some deeper dynamic poses. Finishing with a guided relaxation, this class will help you center yourself and nurture your body inside and out.

Kundalini with Maria - £3

Maria Varanpal aims, through Kundalini Yoga, to create a space where we can be conscious right now and through that welcoming life as a gift with the beautiful diversity of emotions, thoughts, and sensations. Each class last about 90 min, and has the structure of tuning in, warming up, kriya (combination of yoga exercises), relaxation, meditation and tuning out. Every now and then Maria will also bring her Gong. Kundalini Yoga & Gong are tools that can help you let go of stress and live your life more fully. You can read more about Kundalini Yoga, Gong and Maria at www.consciousnow.co.uk. The class is suitable for all levels. If space, non-students are also welcome for the price of £6.

Hatha Flow with Lucy - £3

Lucy brings together her yoga practices of ashtanga, vinyasa and Hatha to create an accessible class of traditional and flowing yoga. Most classes will move through sun salutations, as well as other flowing sequences to get you moving while connecting to body and breath. Most of all the classes aim to allow you to mindfully explore and nurture your body. In this practice you will unite body and breath, giving you a chance to build up to more challenging postures as well as create a deep sense of relaxation. Expect flow, restoration, music and laughter. Classes end with a longer mediation and relaxation leaving you nourished for the days ahead. All abilities welcome.
