About Nature's Rhythm Yoga
Nature’s Rhythm Yoga is based on traditional Hatha yoga and comprised of four themed classes that attune you to the Moon’s cycle.
With the elements of nature, the classes will take you into the flow, coach and tune you into the rhythm of that which makes up the whole of our existence.
The human body comprises approximately 70% water. This means it’s vital for our health to keep the water and fire elements functioning optimally within.
This is taken into consideration in Nature’s Rhythm Yoga when we work at a deeper core level and we learn how to maintain the balance between these opposing forces, keeping the fire in our belly and staying cool in our head.

Nature's Rhythm Yoga
In Nature’s Rhythm Yoga we apply four dynamically structured flowing sequences that
energetically mirror the four phases of the 28-day moon cycle (new, waxing, full and
waning) and they are complemented by the five elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether.
The four themed classes consist of two active, yang yoga sequences and two passive, yin practices.
When tuning in with NRY you will feel your connection to the whole of existence and never feel alone. This strengthens your relationships to the source, to self-love and therefore with others.
There is an acceptance that follows on from this practice. Establishing a consistent routine will give us the feeling of safety and peace of mind leading to ultimate trust in life.

When & Where
Every New Moon, we have the opportunity to manifest a new beginning in our lives, a chance to awaken and walk towards a new step of our destiny. At this phase, it is like the smallest bud on the bush is preparing to open and flower at the ripening time. When we come together, with an intention to grow, we are inviting the universe to give us direction, so our efforts are enhanced.
PRACTICE: Yoga for grounding, clearing the past, setting boundaries to nurture self and to come more deeply into the present moment where we access more joy.
At the Waxing Moon phase, we power up our intentions by putting the action behind what we are focusing on. This phase is the seed bursting upwards through the soil into the light, without due care and attention, your intention can get crushed by various distractions. Your warrior self moves purposefully, energising your whole body, adding the fuel to power up your intentions. Remember what you focus on expands. Inner strength requires a balance between action and stillness.
PRACTICE: Yoga to stimulate your inner light and radiance. Cleanse and purify and open up the energy pathways to power up the Intentions you made at the New Moon
The Full Moon time is a time of flowering. A time of expansiveness, gratitude and appreciation that attracts further abundance. By taking our attention out of the mind and into the heart, our worries and fears become a thing of the past. Having compassion and affection for ourselves and all living beings, tunes our vibration to ATTRACT more of the same. We started off setting our intentions, and then we put the power and action behind those intentions, and now for the Full Moon class, we come to the most expansive and creative phase.
PRACTICE: Yoga to honour your inner teacher, heart wisdom and body. Practices to rebalance, develop more flexibility, connect you with your Truth, creativity, authenticity, and opening to more playfulness and laughter.
At the time of the Waning Moon, comes the space to be creative. Relinquish all former limitations and lovingly steer your mind towards what it is you want in your life. Harness your energies, and re-group, re-focus on what is working for you and what is working against you. Keep your energies flowing, moving beyond any obstacles, with loving acceptance of what is – of ALL that is.
PRACTICE: Yoga to re-align, and invoke openness and lightness. A revision of previous weeks that includes additional inverted postures, with an emphasis on directing energy through the body meridians.
