Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa is a breath initiated practice that connects every action of our life with the intention of moving towards what is sacred, or most important to us.
Cultivating these qualities:
Steadiness (Sthira)
Ease, Spacious (Sukha)
Smooth and Long Breathing (Prayatna Sithila)
The term Vinyasa is derived from nyasa, meaning “to place,” and vi, meaning “in a special way.”  This indicates that we are not “throwing our bodies around” but are bringing consciousness to each movement in each moment.

Hot Flow

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!

Hatha

Our Hatha classes are designed to give you a complete yoga experience. Beginning with Pranayama (breath techniques) to awaken awareness of the breath and connect to the body and mind, followed by traditional hatha style poses focused on building stability, strength, mobility and internal focus. 

Hot Hatha

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.

Yin Yoga

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.

3 MAIN PRINCIPLES OF YIN:

 

  1. Slowly and mindfully entering the pose using the breath to stimulate the flow of chi (energy) and remain focused on the sensations promoted by the pose.
  2. Help nourish the joints by remaining still and allow gravity to have us.
  3. The lengthy posture steadiness allows one to develop yin qualities of surrender, similar to a long acupuncture session. This allows the full nourishment of the meridians and Yin tissue (connective tissue, joints and ligaments).

Yin Yang

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. These classes are a perfect way to end the day and prepare the body and mind for sleep or if you need to wind down after a stressful day. 

Hatha and Meditation

The first 60 minutes of this class is designed to give the student a well-rounded yoga experience. Beginning with Pranayama to awaken awareness of the breath followed by traditional hatha style postures focused on alignment including floor postures that will work your core, hips and spine.

This class is great for any level from beginners to advanced yogis wanting to focus on their basic alignment and foundational practice.

The final 15 minutes will be a guided meditation. This is optional for all student but highly recommended for any level of practitioner.

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It develops concentration, clarity, emotional positivity and seeing of ones true nature. Through different variations of meditation practice we start to notice the inner workings of the mind and habitual patterns.

The foundation to all meditation is to cultivate a calm and positive state of mind.

Hatha & Yoga Nidra

Our Hatha classes are designed to give you a complete yoga experience. Beginning with Pranayama (breath techniques) to awaken awareness of the breath and connect to the body and mind, followed by traditional hatha style poses focused on building stability, strength, mobility and internal focus. 
 
Yoga Nidra also known as yogic sleep, it is an immensely powerful meditation technique where you are in a state of conciousness between waking and asleep.
While the practitioner rests comfortably in Savasana, this systematic meditation takes you through the Pancha Maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness.  With the senses internalised we then enter into a state of deep relaxation whilst still being conscious.

Beginners Course

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.
