Looking for a yoga class that makes you work hard

Recommended Posts

I've been doing yoga for years, always with the same teacher... unfortunately the class doesn't run any more, and I just can't seem to find something similar?

I don't even know what style I'm looking for :huh: (although having tried Iyengar recently, I do know that that's not for me - too much faffing around with blocks and belts!).

I guess I like an energetic, flowing style that makes you work really hard, with some challenging asanas, followed by a nice relaxation at the end.

Oh, and it needs to be in the evening after 7pm. SW Sheffield ideally. Anyone got any suggestions?

The one on Fridays at Ponds Forge is more challenging, think it's about 7 or 8 in the evening. I go to the one Tuesday evening, which is probably a bit easier, in terms of content; but you can make it a lot more challenging by doing even simple postures and movements in a deeper more controlled way.

Thanks for the tip! Just had a look, they call it "yoga-dynamic/fitness" which does bode well. I think I'll give that a try, thank you!

It's good (tough), I've done it a couple of times myself. The instructor keeps you on the move, pretty much through the entire class, so was quite tired after...

 

Anyhow, if you give it a go, let us know how you get on. :)
