Standing apart from other forms of Pilates, Polestar is a style considered in its industry as the very best. Its teaching is exclusive to the individual and extremely thorough. Founded by a collective of physiotherapists, it respects the original repertoire yet constantly evolves as we as individuals evolve. Polestar Teachers take years to certify, and are then placed on their database, after completion of their lengthy examination process. Teachers also have to show a total of 20 hours of yearly continuted education before re- certifying every 2 years. With over 75 core moves, the variations, both regressions and progressions, are limitless. Polestar attracts only the most passionate of individuals for their accreditation process; athletes, physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, podiatrists are common registrants.
An extremely varied discipline, our Ashtanga Vinyasa Align Yoga classes are a demanding and dynamic practice. This flow is taught to challenge the individual both physically and psychologically, to develop both strength and tranquility, and to align the body both mentally and physically.
Focusing on core strength, body posture, alleviating neck and back pain, and lengthening and decompressing the spine. Using various movement science techniques including the Alexander, Feldonkrais and Franklin imagery methods, and Physical-therapy methods, students are encouraged to listen to their bodies, promoting better awareness of movement, thus making the classes non competitive and open to all. Education of movement will also be given in classes to heighten awareness of your movement, breathing and posture. Classes will often finish with exercises in meditation and pranayama (control of breath), designed to reset the body and refocus mental clarity.
Taught in small groups of 5 in the unique studio, classes are non-competitive, and aimed at mixed ability students regardless of age. Please see Classes page for times. Yoga Align Classes specifically for Back Care soon.
