OUR YOGA CLASSES


Gentle Yoga

(Great for Beginners)
Gentle Yoga is the perfect place to lay the founations for a healthy, lifelong yoga practice. Establish, explore and grow your yoga practice at a gentle pace.
 
This is a great place to start if you are a BEGINNER or if you simply prefer a gentle yoga practice.

Yin Yoga

(Great for All Levels of Yoga Experience)

This is a practice of far fewer yoga postures where we take time to stretch out and relax targeting the deepest tissues of the body. If you’re looking for a practice to support your flexibility and range of movement in a breath focused meditative way, this class is for you!  This class will bring balance and depth to your yoga practice.

Hatha Yoga

(Great for All Levels of Yoga Experience)

In this class you’ll move through all of the classic yoga postures you know and love, with a combination of held postures and flowing surya namaskar (sun salutations). Connect with the breath, release tension and create steadiness and ease in body and mind. This grounding class is perfect for all levels of yoga experience.

Vin-Yin

(Great if You Prefer a Stronger Flowing Practice)

This class begins with vinyasa yoga which is a dynamic practice flowing from one posture to the next, cultivating focus, strength and calm, building heat and a deep connection with the breath. For the last part of the class we drop into some yin yoga, where we find stillness and allow time to target the deepest tissues of the body and cultivate presence of mind.

This class is a treat! Balancing effort and ease, strength and release, focus and calm.

Vinyasa

(Great if You Prefer a Stronger Flowing Practice)

This is a dynamic yoga practice linking breath and movement in a flowing practice from one posture to the next, cultivating focus, building internal heat and a deep connection with the breath. If you’ve done vinyasa before jump right in! If you haven’t we suggest you try our hatha yoga and if you feel comfortable with that then come and give vinyasa a go.

Warm Vinyasa

(Great if you’ve tried Vinyasa and want to be challenged!)

This class is a strong dynamic vinyasa practice that will have you warmed from the inside out and is for those that like to BUILD UP A SWEAT! If you’re comfortable doing Vinyasa Yoga and feel ready to challenge yourself then this class is for you! Cultivate focus, strength, balance and calm and enjoy sinking deep into your mat at the end of class for savasana!

Ashtanga Yoga

(Great if you’re looking for a strong challenging practice!)

This is the yoga method out of which vinyasa was developed and is the most challenging class on our timetable. Ashtanga is a sequence of postures that is the same each time, beginning with the ‘Primary Series’. As we learn the sequence we let go of ‘what’s coming next’ and drop in with long focused breaths and are able to see our progress over the weeks and months through taking the same sequence each time. This is a strong and dynamic practice that cultivates focus, strength, and flexibility.
