General Class Info
Classes start with a warm up before moving through a range of poses including standing, balancing, reclining, seated, core and twisting poses.
During Yoga classes, we may briefly discuss the foundations of yoga, how it connects the mind and body and how you can take yogic practices into your daily life, to enhance your quality of life.
In Pilates we talk extensively about maintaining and strengthening our neutral posture and how to take these exercises off the mat into the world to improve back pain, mobility issues and the sense of freedom that comes from having a strong core.
Bookings are essential for classes and please arrive a few minutes early to give yourself time to settle in and start your practice from a relaxed state. If you require more information about Bookings, please click here. Classes run for 60 – 80 minutes and we require you to stay until the end of the class, so that all participants can equally enjoy the practice.
Yoga can be quite physically intense and a great workout, very relaxing and spiritually engaging, or a combination of both. Each session can provide different benefits each time. Poses can be modified for injuries and health concerns.
If you aren’t sure you’re physically ok or ready for yoga, please start with one of the Beginners classes. Beginners classes are suitable for every level and require minimal mobility. If you can’t make a beginners class, you can attend any others, but please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to discuss any modifications you may require.
We always say that you can only practice as hard as your own body allows in your yoga class, the same class will be different for you than the person next to you. We encourage our students to always explore their own edge in any posture or movement.
When you listen to your body and practice within your own limits, you will find that you can generally slip into any class and enjoy your practice just as much as anyone else. While it is a group class, we are able to give particular modifications for you if you have any sort of chronic or acute requirements.
