Class Types

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic and challenging flow practice. The class is structured to build strength and foundation while you explore a repertoire of poses and transitions. Be prepared to flow, play, and experiment with your practice and you will walk away feeling strong, refreshed and energised. Prior experience is helpful but not compulsory. This is a non-heated class.

 HOT HATHA

Hot Hatha is made up of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Hot Hatha is designed to relieve stress, balance and strengthen the glandular system, circulation, digestion and nervous system, reverse the aging process, and reshape muscles, tendons and posture. Conducted in a hot room of 38 to 40 degrees Celsius. Suitable for all levels.

CLASSICAL HATHA Classical Hatha is a non vinyasa-based class that focuses on static postures and longer holds. With a focus on developing mindful awareness in every asana, as well as in the breath, this is a great class for yogis who are looking for a well-rounded practice. This is a non-heated class. Suitable for all levels.
YIN

Yin Yoga is a yoga practice, which exercises the tissues of the body in a way unlike any other yoga practice. As we gently stretch connective tissues by holding a yin pose for a long time, the body responds by making the tissues longer and stronger. Yin Yoga works with the deep tissues of the joints to make all of the joints supple whilst opening up channels of energy in the body, which have been blocked. Suitable for all levels. This is a non-heated class.

HOT FLOW

Hot Flow is made up of consistent flow movements and a structured series of postures, which will allow students to move gracefully through a sweat-dripping workout. You will be given options in each pose, so that you feel challenged, yet successful. Without breaking the natural flow from pose to pose, the focus will be on alignment and breath. Prior experience is helpful but not compulsory. Conducted in a hot room of 38 to 40 degrees Celsius.

ASHTANGA

Ashtanga is a traditional fluid yoga sequence from which all fluid vinyasa styles of yoga are derived. Particular emphasis is paid to linking the postures with the breath, maintaining mental focus, and using the core to build internal heat and give the body support and strength. A challenging practice but one that is accessible to all levels of student, with the use of props and modifications. Suitable for all levels. This is a non-heated class.

YIN YANG

Yin Yang is the amalgamation of two opposing energies. The first half of class 'Yang' is dedicated to a more dynamic asana practice with a primary focus on strength, flexibility and energy shifting. The latter half of class 'Yin', a more reflective introspective energy, is designed to nourish the body. Be guided though a somatic meditation helping to restore your body and mind. Suitable for all levels. This is a non-heated class.

ANUSARA®

 
In Sanskrit anusara means flowing with grace. It is a principle-based, alignment-focused, school of yoga inspired by non-dual tantric philosophy. Each class includes a heart-centered theme, clear alignment instructions and progressive sequencing to align, open and strengthen the body. Classes may also include demonstrations and some flow. Suitable for all levels. This is a non-heated class.

YOGA BASIC

Yoga Basics is perfect for newcomers to yoga, introducing to them the basics of breath and alignment in a safe and supported environment. These classes allow beginner students to build a solid foundation from which they can deepen and explore the practice. The recurring, on-going four-week syllabus covers the following:

Week 1: Breath and sun salutations

Week 2: Warriors and standing poses

Week 3: Core and backbends

Week 4: A basic flow integrating the materials from weeks one to three

Practitioners can start during any week and can repeat the syllabus as many times as they would like. This class is also suitable for experienced practitioners looking to refine their practice. This is a non-heated class.

UNIVERSAL® YOGA Universal® Yoga follows the tradition developed by Andrey Lappa, which weaves modern western science and ancient eastern wisdom together, and seeks to influence the practitioners’ life on and off the mat. It is a holistic practice that works on all koshas (shells) through the complete practice of asanas (physical shell), pranayama (energetic shell), visualisation, mantra, mudra and meditation (all other internal shells). These elements are carefully sequenced in a symmetrical and progressive manner, making students feel a strong sense of balance and serenity at the end of each class. The arrangement of the mats in this class may or may not be cross-shaped. This is a non-heated class.
PRENATAL

Prenatal yoga is a unique yoga experience, incorporating yoga postures and breathing techniques to help you connect with your baby, alleviate discomforts, and lower stress levels. Expect to flow through a series of standing poses, followed by restorative floor work, designed to open and strengthen the muscles, which are essential for labour and postnatal recovery. Join a nurturing and positive community, all transitioning into the role of motherhood. All prenatal classes are taught by highly qualified prenatal yoga teachers.

POSTNATAL Postnatal Yoga helps you regain your core strength, and reconnect with your vital energy. The practice focuses on rebuilding strength in the the abdominal area, back and pelvic floor; releasing tension in the shoulders and neck, and opening the heart. Postnatal Yoga relaxes and restores your body, and relieves the tightness that comes after pregnancy and labour. It is usually suitable to ease into practice 4-6 weeks postpartum after natural birthing; whilst mothers who have gone through a Caesarean birth, can usually expect to wait 6-8 weeks.
