Practice With Us
We have classes for all levels, all bodies, all backgrounds
At Little Bali, we believe that yoga is really a breathing exercise in which we use the body to expand the mind. And not the way around. Our practice follows the philosophy outlined by the sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, also known as the “eight-limbed yoga” which offers a complete guideline and advices on how to develop a practice that suits you best. Remember, it’s not about the pose and you don’t have to be perfect; just let it go, keep breathing and the rest will unfold. (All classes are available in french and english depending on your needs, except stated otherwise)
By synchronizing the breath with a set serie of postures, Ashtanga yoga is producing intense internal heat, which purifies and detoxifies muscles and organs. This will leave you with a light yet strong body, and a calmer mind. Be prepared to discover a whole new world within yourself as Ashtanga yoga will stretch every corner of your body and mind, inviting you to strengthen areas of challenge and inspire you to live with purpose.
Vinyasa yoga style is a dynamic yoga practice flowing deeply from pose to pose by synchronizing body movements with breath movements. Explore new yoga poses into a gradual progression from easier to more advanced asanas. Get ready to move, breathe, sweat, and challenge yourself! Our signature vinyasa class will always feature a specific theme, focusing on one or several parts of your body, while always leaving you inspired both physically and mentally. The different themes offered are Heart-Opening, Hips-Opening, Back & Shoulder, Detox, and many more.
Somewhere in between an individual session and a seminar, our coaching circles are tackling different topics and offer keys to develop and understand ourselves better. Be ready to have conversations with yourself and others, exchanging on different topics and learning from our perspectives and experiences. These are moments of reflection and empowerment, giving you more peace of mind and drive, to live purposefully.
Derived from the Sanskrit ha, meaning “sun,” and tha, meaning “moon,” Hatha (“Force”) yoga unites and balances these two energies through the physical techniques of this ancestral practice. These are typically practiced more slowly and with more static posture holds than a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class. Hatha yoga is great for yogis wanting to refine their practice and alignment, gaining mastery through the exploration of each pose.
Pilates is a holistic and non-impact exercise system designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. It is a mat-based workout, considering the whole body (core, legs, bum, and arms), improving posture and overall fitness level, while restoring optimum physical function.
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful guided meditation and relaxation technique, available to everyone, practitioner or not. While you will be resting comfortably in Savasana (lying down on the floor), this practice will help you disconnect to reconnect within, find your own truth, and plant a seed of transformation. This practice is about coming back to what matters the most: your true and peaceful self.
Counter-Indications: Anyone suffering from severe anxiety, mental health conditions, or is suffering from depression, bipolar disorders, and extremely low blood pressure.
Flexibility & Mobility
This class is focusing on flexibility and Mobility. This class will take you through very deep stretches in order to increase flexibility, as well as exploring movements through our joints to gain mobility. You will leave this class deeply relaxed, prepared to either start your day or close it in a balanced way.
PARENTS & Kids yoga
This is a playful approach to yoga, opening up children to the benefits of yoga postures, breathwork, and meditation. Through conscious practice, children and parents can develop more solid confidence in themselves and each other, while understanding their bodies and mind to deeper levels. Children are naturally playful and resourceful, which enables them to approach yoga in a much easier and faster way. Not only will they feel happier and more grounded, but they also will feel more comfortable expressing their inner style and joy!
In Yin yoga, we target the deep connective tissues of the body – the ligaments, joints, bones, and deep fascia networks, with poses being held for longer periods of time up to 5 minutes. Perfect to unwind and release muscle and fascia tension, as well as stagnant emotions that do not serve you anymore. Yin yoga will work deeply on your flexibility while bringing you calm and balance for the mind and the body. On an energetic level, Yin yoga improves energy flow and enhances the flow of chi in the organs.
Gentle yoga is an inclusive asana practice that caters to all ages, and body types. By moving into postures that relax the body, the mind is put at ease and a sense of calm is restored to the body. During this class, expect little effort with the highest level of gentleness with ourselves and our bodies.
Yoga is not only about the movements (asanas), it’s a whole philosophy and approach to integral well-being and self-realization. During this class, you will explore different facets of Yoga through breathing exercises, mantras, asanas, and meditation. It’s a holistic approach to Yoga, enabling us to focus on our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Viniyoga is a traditional practice that adapts the various means and methods to the unique condition, needs, and interests of each individual, giving practitioners the tools to individualize and actualize the process of self-discovery and personal transformation.
The emphasis is placed on function rather than form in āsana practice, and the science of adapting the forms of the postures to achieve different results. Indeed, the posture will adapt to you, not the way around.
Also, the breath remains an essential medium for movement and the pattern of breathing in āsana will be adapted to produce different effects.
Finally, your teacher will use the refined art and science of sequencing to create practices of different orientations, lengths, and intensities to suit the intention and context of each practice and/or practitioner.
YIN YANG YOga
Yin and Yang are the Taoist concepts which describe the two relative qualities present in everything. Yin (black color) represents the feminine / lunar energy and is more internal, passive, cooling and downward. Yang (white color) represents the masculine / solar energy and is more external, dynamic, warming and upward. Applied in yoga, Yin Yang blends two styles of yoga into one practice; bringing together the lunar energy of the Yin, passively holding yoga poses and working on the deep connective tissues and joints in the body, with the solar energy of the Yang, flowing through more dynamic sequences and standing postures.
