This class is focused on postnatal recovery for mums – In each practise we will begin with a breathing exercise, moving to gentle strengthening postures for the core and pelvis, finishing with some nourishing restorative poses releasing tension for neck, shoulders and back.
To make this interactive you will be offered the option of having the baby involved in some of the postures.
Classes are suitable for mums from 6 weeks after your birth to 6 months ( or baby starts crawling).
No previous yoga experience is needed for this class.
Please bring a blanket or a mat for the little one as the baby will be near you on the floor.
We offer regular beginners courses, which are a great place to start. If you haven’t been into a studio setting before it can be quite daunting. So our beginners course helps put you at ease and melt away any fears of not being flexible enough or strong enough with an inhale and exhale. You will begin the yoga journey becoming familiar with the postures, breath and have some fun learning new things about yourself and your body.
We offer a variety of workshops from inversions, arms balances, back bends, posture clinics to yin and restorative yoga. Take a look at our home page to see what workshops are happening every month.
Vinyasa Flow is an invigorating, energizing practice that aligns the body in various postures while synchronizing the breath with the movement. Together, we breathe move and flow from one pose to another. Finding fluidity and ease in the body, as well as strengthening and focusing the mind. Vinyasa is a creative, fun practice that often incorporates breath awareness, sun salutations, core strengthening, arm balances, standing balancing poses with a few floor postures to strengthen the core, spine and open the hips. All levels are welcome (although it is a stronger practice). Our teachers always offer modifications or variations to help you find your flow while building strength, stamina and resilience.
Hot Flow is exactly the same as Vinyasa Flow except the room is heated to 32 degrees. Especially good if you like the heat and to sweat a little! You will come out glowing and energized!
Yin classes are great for beginners and experienced Yogis who would like to work on mobility, flexibility and experience quiet mindfulness. The use of props and blankets is encouraged to support the postures. Our Sunday night Yin class is super popular – set in a beautiful ambience of candles and soft music. This class is a perfect way to end the weekend and begin a new week.

This is a reasonably new and popular practice that balances the masculine and feminine aspects of Yoga. The first part of the class is spent warming up with breath awareness and some gentler movements then shifting the energy into a more energizing flow coming back down to Yin. A great class for all levels to experience both the flow style and Yin where postures are held for longer.
Yin activity is slow, steady with a sense of core softness and surrender. Yang activity is active, builds to an apex before calming down and maintains a core strength that requires appropriate effort. The main difference between these styles of engagement is a matter of degree and more about how we practice determines whether we target the yin (connective tissues) or yang (muscular) tissues more directly or indirectly. The combination of Yin/Yang yoga allow for setting up inner alignment, creating the foundation for outer or postural alignment. Together Yin/Yang makes for a well-rounded, balanced practice for the body and mind.
This Hatha class is designed to give you a well-rounded yoga experience. Beginning with Pranayama (breath exercise) to awaken awareness of the breath followed by traditional hatha style postures focused on alignment including floor postures that will strengthen and mobilise your core, hips and spine. Finishing with a 3-minute meditation to complete the practice.
This class is great for any level from beginners to advanced yogis wanting to focus on their basic alignment and foundational practice.
Our Hot Hatha classes take a more classical approach to sequencing by incorporating breathing exercises and postures to increase mobility in the spine, hips, quadriceps and hamstrings. This fun focused class is heated to 36-38 degrees for a detoxifying sweat. All levels are welcome. Bring a towel and water bottle along with you.
