Classes We Offer
Our classes focus on moving all parts of the body to create freedom through movement, allowing you to gain strength, flexibility and internal balance while heightening your body-mind awareness. It is through this mindful movement and conscious breathing that the nervous system and mind start to unwind; paving the way for healing, openness, relaxation, clarity and ease
Includes moving through a full range of yoga poses in a breath synchronised movement format, incorporating stretching and strength and finishing off with relaxation and breath awareness to give the body time to incorporate the practice and rebalance the soul.
The classes start with gentle warm ups, moving towards sun salutations and other dynamic movements before moving through stronger and more energetic movements to create heat, flexibility and wring out tension and blockages in all the body systems.
Vinyasa is suitable to all levels, all students can feel free to explore the poses to a level that suits them and newbies can take it at an easier pace. Plenty of options and modifications available and opportunities to slow down or rest as required.

Vinyasa and Yin Yoga Fusion
The best of the Yin and Yang aspects of yoga fused together for an all encompassing body, mind, soul experience! Enjoy a warming but accessible vinyasa sequence to open the body and release tension before settling down for the Yin postures to deeply nourish and release physical and mental tension.
Yin Yoga is a slow paced style of yoga where postures are more passive, mainly on the floor. Yin Yoga is unique in that you are asked to relax in the posture and soften the muscles. Yin offers a deeper access to the body. Postures are held for a longer period as we focus the practice on myo-fascia (connective tissue) release. When these postures are linked with mindful breathing they release body tension and stress, increase flexibility and nourish the joints and fascia of the body. This style of practice supports the pace of our busy yang lifestyle. Through fascial release you will experience a greater range of mobility and you will be supporting your nervous system and immunity.
Accessible for all levels and all abilities and ages.
Pilates is a range of movements designed to strengthen the deep core muscles, the back and the buttocks.
The focus is on the breath and quality of movement, not quantity. Each exercise has options to progress so you work to your own degree; therefore making Pilates suitable for beginners to more experienced students.
Use Pilates to improve poor movement patterns and wake up muscles the body has stopped using. This will take pressure off overworked muscles. Once we strengthen our centre, we then move and work from our centre- helping us to feel centred, aligned and balanced.
If you love Yoga, Pilates will enhance your practice. Otherwise, use Pilates to improve poor posture, pain and instability.
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.

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 more gentle classes. Gentler 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.
