About


What is ChromaYoga?

ChromaYoga™ is a revolutionary new approach to practising yoga. Combining light and colour therapy, soundscapes and bespoke natural scents to enhance the modern yoga experience.

Each aspect of ChromaYoga has been used to develop an experience dedicated to the improvement of wellbeing. Our role as an organisation is very much grounded in developing ancient techniques for the modern age and using these ideas to further our understanding of how we can take control of our own emotional and physical wellbeing.

However, we also embrace the culture in which we live in and believe that the key to fulfilment in modern life is balance. We seek to address that balance through our combination of immersive practises, making ChromaYoga a truly unique and rewarding experience.

ChromaYoga is set to introduce a whole new spectrum of benefits to your individual yoga practise.

 


Sound

As well as light therapy, sound therapy is a big part of each ChromaYoga class. Taking inspiration from binaural and isochronic tones, each class is accompanied by a specially composed soundtrack which emulates the frequencies our brains emit in different states of consciousness. These sounds can promote a more calm, focused and relaxed state of mind and allow for a class without distraction whilst delivering a multi dimensional sound experience that guides the class into a fully immersive sensory state.

Scent

Collaborating with one of London's most talented scent makers, Asakala, we have developed our own combination of essential oils to correspond with each class colour. These scents will be used in harmony with yoga poses to drive energy, aid breath work, release muscle tension and encourage relaxation.

Wellness

As well as providing an immersive yoga experience, our approach to wellbeing uses many techniques off the mat.

Our in-house practitioners offer advice on how to balance your body on the inside and we provide a range of treatments from acupuncture to herbal tonics which can aid many common physical and emotional issues. 

The ChromaYoga Method

Light

Our classes are grounded in the latest scientific research into the effect that specific light frequencies can have on our body.

Many scientific studies have been conducted to monitor the effects of monochromatic light on the human body and mind. One of the most common colours which affect our day to day routines is blue light. The advances in technology over the past 40 years has culminated in a influx of over exposure to blue light through laptops, smartphones, tv’s and tablets. This prolonged exposure to blue light has been scientifically proven to suppress the production of melatonin and subsequently interferes with our natural circadian rhythms. Suppression of melatonin at night can contribute to a wealth of emotional and physical problems; from insomnia, anxiety, S.A.D and even cancer.

ChromaYoga sets to address the imbalance in our lives by saturating ourselves in the colours we need to bring about positive change. Each ChromaYoga class is held in a ergonomically designed room bathed in a specific colour of light. The teacher guides the class through a set of sequences which correspond to the healing properties of that colour. The lighting we use is non-invasive, safe and environmentally friendly.

About the Founder

nina.jpg

Nina Ryner has spent the last 10 years in a variety of creative industries. From graduating with a degree in Film to touring the world as a backing dancer, art directing photoshoots and running a fashion label, Nina's passion is putting her ideas to task and making them reality. 

After developing a keen interest in fitness and attending a variety of classes sometimes up to 6 days a week, Nina soon became frustrated with what she thought was a severe lack of imagination when it came to class experiences. There seemed to be nothing that was bridging the gap between the commercial and the experimental and this is what guided Nina to the idea of creating a unique, immersive experience.

Taking inspiration from the interactive art installations of James Turrell, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Veronica Ann Janssens and Olafur Eliasson and fusing this with her ideas about futuristic fitness - ChromaYoga was born. 

Working closely with yoga teacher, Clara Baker, artist, Asakala, and sound designer Tim Goalen, the ChromaYoga concept was developed to encompass a range of multi-sensory experiences which approach yoga and wellness in a new and exciting way not yet seen before. 

By bringing together ancient healing practises with new and innovative modern technology, Nina's passion for the future of wellness is the driving force behind the unique experience that ChromaYoga offers.
