BEGIN AGAIN classes cover the basics of Yoga Flow. Posture alignment, transitions, grounding, the involvement of the ego, setting an intention, attitude, breath-work, meditation and a little philosophy. These classes are suitable for anyone who is new to yoga, who wants to begin their practice again or who just wants to stick to the basics.
SLOW FLOW classes might feature less movement than Dynamic as they move at a slower more meditative pace. We focus on alignment of postures and gaining a felt sense of the shape, concentrating on basic postures but also challenging ourselves to progress and grow. As with all classes, the students in the room and via Zoom will somewhat inform the content.
This class is suitable for all, with no previous experience necessary, and can be booked individually or as part of the LY Pass.
DYNAMIC FLOW classes feature strong sequences and sometimes quicker movement. We focus on alignment, a felt sense of the postures and attaning a state of flow whether exploring basic omore advanced postures.
This class is strong and is recommended for yogis with previous experience and / or a reasonable level of fitness, and can be booked individually or as part of the LY Pass.
POWER FLOW is 30 Minutes of intense movement with breath ending with a short meditation / Savasana. We explore a whole range of postures from basic to advanced. Movement tends to be quick so we build up a sweat and get us out of our head and into our body. These sessions are not for the fainthearted!
At the moment these classes are not available in Studio but are pre-recorded and added to the video library each week. They can be viewed by anyone who has an LY Pass.

My Flow Yoga classes are tailored to suit a wide range of levels and abilities. Flow Yoga is a beautiful combination of many different styles of yoga that allows for freedom of expression from both teacher and student. It is a dance to the rhythm of your breath that synchronises all the parts of you, strengthening and sculpting the entire body mind, and removing areas of stress and tension.
Classes involve moving meditation, moments of contemplation and an invitation to explore yourself as you are in that moment. There is a strong focus on the power of the breath to calm and centre the mind, to get very present and to cultivate a felt sense of yourself as you really are - peaceful, joyful, expansive and full of potential.
My name is Lorna Kennedy and I passionately believe in the transformational power of yoga as I have experienced first hand it's life changing effects.
My intention as a teacher is to help you connect with your natural state. The postures are tools that allow us to dig into the tension, to explore what's underneath and to begin to let go of that constant need to grip. We use the breath to get present, to focus our attention, to coalesce the fragmented pieces of ourselves so that in our wholeness, we can turn towards our fears, embrace our shadow self and ultimately move towards a higher state of consciousness.
I ask students to explore embodying the practice of yoga, so moving from the muscles, the skin, the bones and the internal organs. I invite them to become familiar with their bodies, to create space within the framework, cultivating an awareness of alignment, and inevitably ensuring a stronger, more flexible, more open, body & mind.
My wish is for my students to move from the inner body, to step down from the head into the space of the heart, for them to experience pure scintillating awareness and to discover and connect to the inner joy that is our natural state.
