Essential Practice (A set sequence)

Tuesdays 6.00pm – 1 hour 15 minutes

Essential Practice is a set sequence of poses that are designed to strengthen the body and focus the mind.
This class will bring together the fundamentals of Yoga through posture, breath, and inner awareness. Each of the poses are held longer to create a deeper understanding of the Asana and the benefits they offer both physically and mentally.

Yin Yoga

(open to all levels)

Tuesdays 7.45pm – 1 hour 15 mins

Thursdays 10.30am – 1 hour

Thursdays 7.30pm – 1 hour 15 mins

Yin Yoga is a part of the original Hatha Yoga tradition. Yin Yoga combines the influences of Indian Yoga with Chinese Daoist practices and Western science to improve our health and well-being on many levels. With its emphasis on long held, passive stretches of the deeper connective tissues, Yin Yoga mobilises and strengthens our joints, ligaments and deep fascial tissue networks throughout the body.

As Yin Yoga is mainly a seated or supine practice, we will use our available studio props such as bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets, to fully support and hold the body and ensure the optimum pose can be achieved for your body’s ability.

Yin Yoga classes are deeply relaxing, restoring equilibrium, balance and harmony throughout your body.

Soulful Vinyasa

(open to all levels)

Thursdays 6.00pm – 1 hour

Saturdays 10.00am – 1 hour

Soulful Vinyasa is a fun and dynamic practice, set to soulful music. This is a perfect mid-week class to shake off any stress, re-energise and re-centre yourself. Vinyasa is a flowing sequence which synchronises traditional Hatha poses, breath and movement, so they smoothly transition from one pose to another.

These classes move at a faster pace than the gentle flow classes, and can build up to arm balances and more advanced poses. It is usually best to attend these classes with some basic Asana and Sun Salutation knowledge, and of course an open mind and an adventurous and playful spirit.

Rocket Ashtanga Yoga

(open to all levels)

Fridays 6.30pm – 1 hour 30 mins

Rocket Ashtanga Yoga sequence is a collection of ashtanga primary, intermediate and advanced asanas. A swift and challenging form of ‘yang’ yoga, it builds strength, stability and freedom in the body.
This is a demanding but fun class that is open to all levels.

The sequence will move through sun salutations, standing asanas, seated postures, twists and backbends, yet the approach is a lot more fluid and fun, breaking away from structure and order, in Rocket you are encouraged to be playful when moving through more challenging asanas and to modify poses to suit your body.

The lightheartedness in Rocket makes it an accessible style for many.

Mindful Flow with Jane

(open to all levels)

Mondays 7.30pm – 1 hour 15 mins

A fun, flowing yoga class which invites you to tune into the energy of the body. Using the breath as guide, we’ll flow through creative asana sequences with awareness of how our bodies feel in the magic of the present moment. The second half of the class will explore longer held postures to both ground and energise us, and we’ll close with a peaceful, guided relaxation. It’s all about moving mindfully and being as kind to yourself.

Restorative Yoga with Helen Olivia

(open to all levels)

Wednesdays 7.45pm – 1 hour 15 mins

A gentle practice perfect for that necessary mid week energetic reset. This practice is designed to calm the nervous system and restore inner peace and harmony. With a mindful approach, expect gentle stretches to softly unwind and open up the body, easing into longer held restful postures using props and blankets for deep healing, restfulness and a restoring of mind-body and spirit connection.
