Class description: The class begins with a relaxation so that you can bring yourself into the space and become aware as to how you are in your physical body and mental body.  The physical practice consists of gentle to stronger postures allowing you to explore the areas of your body that you need to relax so that you are not slowly adding tension to a perhaps already tense body. Tense body, tense mind. Be aware of every moment, movement, and the breath.  Breathing practices help us to relax deeper into our awareness of the 'stuff' we need to let go of so we can live our life to its fullest capacity.  The class ends with a guided relaxation.

Kevin Vaughn is a yoga instructor from Hobart, Tasmania.  He has been practising yoga for the past 49 years and teaching for 13 years.  Trained in Byron Bay, Australia with Yoga Arts in the Ashtanga Style, his preference is Iyengar Style with an emphasis on holding postures so the body/mind can relax and open, finding stillness and quietness within the poses.  Asanas (physical practices) are used to help open and strengthen the physical body.  Pranayama (breath practice) and relaxation techniques play a big part in his teaching, leading into a deep, mindful relaxation.
