Class Summary

Date:26th Aug 2017
Time:11:00 am
Duration:60 minutes
Class type:Superflow
Class description:This special heated Vinyasa practice encourages a deeper connection to our community and brings about an experience of fluidity, motion and heat. Poses are generally held for short periods of time and emphasis on the rhythm of the breath is encouraged with the purpose of aligning and focusing the mind. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included. The heat adds to the physical effort required to do the postures and aids to condition the body. This class is suitable for students with some Vinyasa experience looking to have a challenging and dynamic experience. No full inversions are included in these classes. Some preparations for inversions and Level 2 postures may be introduced, with options for Level 1 students to ease the transition from Level 1 to Level 2 classes. Room temperature: 35-38 °C.
Class level: Level 1


Since he was a child, Dale has gravitated towards helping others. He was the kid at school who got on with everyone and found humour to be another gift and weapon in the world of growing up. At 18 he took up Thai boxing to keep him safe in England's northern cities and he balanced that with Thai massage. He later practised kung fu and Chinese massage, also learning Mandarin Chinese in Taiwan where he lived for 7 years.

After an impulsive trip to an ashram and Vipassana retreat in 2005, Dale found his inner pull towards helping others become a driving force in his yoga studies and practice. With many styles and methods practised, he has been able to see yoga teachings and its applications from different viewpoints. He has taken many inspiring teacher trainings including classes with Yogaworks' James Brown, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller, Richard Freeman, Paul Dallaghan, and various advanced pranayama trainings. He practises meditation, and has his own pranayama and daily posture practice. He believes that we need to be open and sensitive enough to balance traditional teachings, teachings from present well-studied teachers, and our own real and valid experience.

He gives his students time to feel through their own experience in the hope that they are rewarded through personal investigation of sensations, perceptions, feelings and thought patterns. Practising being the witness of one's experience is a constant reminder for his students. Dale is passionate and committed to his own personal practice, and he feels it important to teach with compassion, humour and using metaphors to add a little depth to the whole experience.

He is also inspired by Richard Freeman, Paul Dallaghan and Adnan Tarovich. Dale is currently loving works by Tich Naht Hahn, Rupert Spira, and as always, Ram Dass.
