|Class type:||Universal Yoga 1|
|Class description:||This class follows the tradition developed by Andrey Lappa, which weaves modern western science and ancient eastern wisdom together, and seeks to influence the practitioners’ life on and off the mat. Universal Yoga combines the practice of vinyasa with pranayama, visualisation, mantra, mudra and meditation. These elements are carefully sequenced in a symmetrical and progressive manner, making students feel a strong sense of balance and serenity at the end of each class. The arrangement of the mats in this class may or may not be cross-shaped.
Suitable for students with some yoga experience looking to have an invigorating 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.|

|Shalon first stepped onto the yoga mat in 2005, whilst she was working in the marketing industry. She came to yoga simply for the sake of keeping herself healthy so that she would look good in auditions, but she later discovered that yoga is as much of an emotional and spiritual "workout" as it is a physical one. Inspired by her teacher Antonie and Joe at Bikram Yoga, she quickly became a dedicated practitioner and a healthier, morereceptive, patient and content person.|
Shalon feels she has been particularly blessed on her path of yogic discovery with the guidance of Sharon Gannon and David Life. David's great sense of humour and encouragement to students to explore their limits are unmistakeable in his teaching. Sharon shifted the way Shalonhas practised and taught, inspiring her to move away from the purely physical approach to a deeper spiritual level, redirecting attention to our true nature - which is love itself, beyond limitations.
Shalon's classes are fun, educational and challenging. Her teaching focuses on alignment and breathing, with the aim to cultivate a deep connection that facilitates movement from the core. She believes thatyoga is a powerful tool to clear physical, emotional and energetic blockages, evoking deeper levels of self-acceptance and compassion for others. Her teaching intends to build physical and mental strength, and help her students to feel a sense of well-being and groundedness.
