Descriptions

Beginners Welcome! Our classes to all levels of experience and fitness. Therefore when choosing a class style, ask yourself how you want to feel after class. If you need to relax and restore, Stretch, Yin and Meditation are fantastic for de-stressing and gently opening both mind and body. If you want to feel energised, Flow Yoga and Barre will get you moving dynamically and leave you vibrant and sparkly with sweat. If you seek empowerment in you practice,  Flow Yoga and Pilates will equip you with knowledge to build strength and stability. Beginners are welcome to any type of class but a great place to start would be our stretch yoga.

Stretch Yoga

This low intensity class style focuses on releasing tightness and tension in your body to help increase mobility and flexibility. You will leave feeling stretched, relaxed and rejuvenated. The slower pace of this class allows you the space to cultivate deeper awareness of your movement and breathing patterns, encouraging you to release any habits that are no longer serving. This class is fantastic for anyone looking to reduce stress and anxiety, to recover from injury, or for a perfect compliment to any cardio and strength training regime.

Flow Yoga

This energising class style focuses on the unification of movement and breath. You will be guided through a steadily paced flow that will enliven and warm your body, releasing any blockages while helping you build strength and flexibility. Different options are always given by our teachers when moving to more challenging postures. We encourage you to listen to your body and take the options that best suit you.You will unlock greater range of motion and increase mind-body awareness as you move fluidly from posture to posture. Our teachers provide step-by-step verbal description and frequent demonstration and adjustment to ensure you are moving in a way that will benefit your body, and help focus and calm your mind.This class is great for anyone looking to expand their understanding of Yoga and its benefits.

Barre

These classes are a full body workout that fuse the best elements of ballet, Pilates, sports conditioning and stretching for a truly unique and fun experience. With the support of a ballet barre you will flow through a sequence of exercises ranging from smaller movements to isolate specific muscle groups to larger movements to get your heart pumping. This class is fantastic for building long, lean muscle and getting those good endorphins running!

Pilates

Pilates

Our mat classes will teach you Pilates fundamentals to develop strength, coordination, stability and balance. We work on various muscle groups each class, specifically focusing on correct engagement of stabilising muscles to support good posture. Using body weight, props and small repetitive movements, exercises target muscle groups that gym workouts often miss. Move to energising music, feel the burn and leave feeling longer and stronger. This fun class will get you a little sweaty and feeling muscles that you didn’t know existed!

Meditation

This is a practice of concentrated focus to promote relaxation, reduce stress and increase awareness of the present moment. The point of focus for our classes is a guided visualisation that will lead you on a journey inward, enhancing personal and spiritual growth. Some of the many benefits of Meditation include increased memory, focus, communication abilities, tolerance and emotional stability. Recent research shows that a regular meditation practice may slow age related thinning of the frontal cortex, leading to longer lasting executive functioning.

Yin Yoga

This practice targets the connective tissue of the body, fascia, which is often missed in more active styles of movement, as the body needs to be cool. Stretching the fascia will help you to increase joint mobility, flexibility and circulation. Yin postures are passive and mostly floor-based allowing you to completely surrender and disengage muscular effort. Postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes at a time using a number of props to maximise comfort. Long holds can be both physically and mentally challenging, requiring you to search for stillness in both mind and body. This stillness calms the mind and body, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.
