Vinyasa

Our signature yoga class, Vinyasa is characterised by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga.

Vinyasa will clear the mind and challenge yourself through a dynamic series of postures that balance strength and flexibility. We maintain focus on alignment and awareness of the breath empowering you to feel balanced and centred. Suitable for all levels of experience as variations and modifications of the poses are offered in every class.

Power Flow

Power Flow Yoga is a powerful, energetic form of yoga where students fluidly move from one pose to the next while connecting their breathing to their movements. It is taught in a warm studio which makes it a vigorous and revitalising form of physical fitness. It incorporates strength, flexibility, balance, cardio and physical and mental stamina in one session.

Baron Baptiste, the founder of this form of yoga, describes this practice as “the perfect blend of sweat and serenity.” It will allow you to release stress, while still building strength and gaining flexibility. All levels welcome, as modifications are always offered! The room will be warm on arrival.

Slow Flow

Bringing the element of time into the practice. Enjoy slowing down with this blend of Hatha and Vinyasa but, be aware this does not always mean it will be easy.

Poses are generally held for longer periods, with the transitions between slowed down and fewer of them. Poses can be refined and strengthened, without feeling rushed into the next move, next breath, or next pose. The more slow-paced nature of this class means it’s great for beginners, but also perfect for intermediate or advanced yogis who would like to sink deeper into their practice.

Gentle Flow

Gentle Flow is a slow paced flow class, incorporating gentle stretching and strengthening movements which are performed in a sequence, concentrating in for maximum benefits.

Awareness of the breath helps to calm the mind and enables you to move deeper into the stretches. It’s accessible to all levels from beginners to advanced.

Yin

Enjoy the feelings of rejuvenation and steadiness that arise from a Yin Yoga practice as you slow down, move from noise to silence, from agitation to calm, from complexity to simplicity.

This practice integrates the ancient Yoga teachings with Meridian Theory as taught in Chinese Medicine. Engage the body’s natural healing power as you actively nourish and harmonize the body’s vital life force or chi. As the whole body rests and opens with long held poses, the natural healing power of chi is used to rejuvenate and repair the area of focus.

Restorative

Gentle, supportive, and therapeutic. At its core, restorative yoga is a practice of passive healing. As the name suggests, this style of yoga “restores” the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balance. By allowing time for longer asanas (postures or poses) and deeper breathing, restorative yoga helps elicit the relaxation response – slow breathing, reduce blood pressure, and produce a feeling of calm and increased well-being.

A key feature in restorative yoga is the use of props such as blocks, bolsters, or blankets. The props help you hold passive poses for longer without exerting or tiring out your muscles. It also allows you to feel comfortable and supported, regardless of your experience with yoga.

And, since you’re encouraged to relax fully in the pose while focusing on your breath, restorative yoga allows you to release tension in your muscles for longer periods without discomfort.
