Yoga for Climbers

With some of our yoga teachers also being experienced climbers, we are pleased to be able to offer two weekly classes designed with the needs of climbers in mind. Utilising some simple yet powerful concepts, each session is a targeted exploration of an aspect that is of particular benefit to the climber. Whether it is seeking to find more muscular balance, to assist in recovery, or to improve functional mobility, this class will help improve your climbing.

Vinyasa Flow

Well-rounded, energising and grounding flow yoga. Breath-centred, with flowing movements in rhythm with the breath. Accessible for all levels, and great for anyone looking to foster a sense of ease.

Beginners Yoga

This beginners’ class is a great way to kick off your yoga journey. Our friendly and knowledgeable teachers work with the group to explore—step by step—some quintessential aspects of yoga technique and philosophy. It’s foundational, and it’s about learning with others who are starting out too.

Hatha Yoga

With clear instruction and helpful cues, you are led through a well-rounded and breath-centred sequence. These classes always follow a flowing and consistent pattern: beginning with sun salutations, followed by standing postures, onwards to some useful seated postures, and then to some engaging back-bends. We then reduce the pace and intensity with more passive positions and guided relaxation.

Yin Yang

Create dynamic strength and vital energy in your physical form along with space and clarity in your mind with these offerings of Yin Yang yoga.

Awaken

Awaken—the class to start your day with! Begin gently to connect your mind to body and breath then increase the tempo to charge your being with vital energy for life.

Rest & Restore

Join us on a Friday evening to decompress from the week; to melt the tensions of the week away; allowing you to put your best foot forward going into the weekend. This class is characterised by a much slower pace with longer stays in relatively passive and supported positions. Let us quietly guide you through a range of restorative positions giving you ample time to tune into the subtle qualities of the body, breath and mind.

Group Practise

Every Thursday and Saturday morning the Uprising studio is made available for anyone who wishes to self practise. We simply have a supervisor there to open and close up whilst you do your thing—whether that be asana, pranayama or meditation practices. A warm distraction free space for you to enjoy your personal practice.

Yoga Fundamentals

Yoga Fundamentals is a great way to kick off your yoga journey. Over a 6-week programme, our friendly and knowledgeable teachers work with the group to explore—step by step—some quintessential aspects of yoga technique and philosophy. It’s foundational, and it’s about learning with others who are starting out too.

Course starts Tuesday 28 July. Sign up now.

Yoga Study

Our Yoga Study Module is a 6-week course. It covers similar content to a typical teacher training course and can be an excellent way to expand your understanding of yoga, and connect with like-minded people.

Where are we coming from?

We are all different. This is why at Uprising Yoga we give great importance to finding an approach that reflects your uniqueness.

We cherish the fact that everyone is different and we are always on a quest to see how we might apply the wisdom and techniques of yoga to your unique situation.

Typically, for someone starting out with us, we would teach something close to the Ashtanga Vinyasa. This means having a set sequence of postures where priority is given to coordinating the breath to movement (Vinyasa) along with Drishti (a direction to rest your gaze). There are some great benefits to having a consistent and steady approach for a newer student. However, and very importantly, after a little while, the direction and nature of the practice will change depending on the specific needs, wants and reason for being there. For some, this means branching off more into breathing practices (Pranayama). For others, this means honing the physical practice to help with imbalances or injuries. The possibilities are actually endless as the tools of yoga are incredibly diverse. Therefore, the process quickly becomes more organic and more driven by a two-way dialogue between the practitioner and the teacher. In this way, the teacher becomes more like a mentor or friend as you explore different ways to apply the principles and tools of yoga.
