Flow & Meditation

A class that emphasises calm moving and a clear mind. We start with breath work to soothe the nervous system, bring focus to the mind and body and cultivate steadier and deeper breathing. With this steady breath, we move into the asana (postural) practice, flowing slowly from one asana to the next as we stay in tune with our inhales and exhales. Feel strong and connected to your body and mind's rhythms, never rushing from posture to posture but moving to keep the breath, body and mind as steady as we practice. We end the class in a short meditation- a time for your mind to settle and enjoy in the stillness and calm.

Gentle Flow

Designed for those who prefer a gentler paced practice. This class is breath and mindfulness based with emphasis on fluidity and awareness in motion at all times.

We will cultivate a steadiness of body, mind, focus and well-being.

What to expect: A gentle paced class based on mindfulness and breath.
Who for? Open to everyone, including for those newer to Yoga, or just finished a Beginners Course.

Our muscles and bones are treated to a delightful relief of their duties of support and action, allowing layers of tension to melt away. A perfect complement to those who are used to a more dynamic, energetic practice.

Yoga HIIT Fusion

This class blends the mindfulness of yoga with HIIT (high-intensity interval training). Yoga HIIT fusion is a mixture of vinyasa yoga and high intensity interval training, a workout that is scientifically proven to be effective by building strength and burning calories in the least amount of time. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) involves reps of exercises to work targeted areas of the body. In this fusion many of the moves are taken from yoga asana and adapted for safe alignment in HIIT. The HIIT segment of the class picks up your heart rate and activates fast twitch muscle fibers to help to tone and sculpt the body. Yoga compliments the HIIT workout with a targeted flow sequence to warm up and cool down. Build stronger bones and muscles while gaining additional joint and muscle flexibility. This class includes a Tabata timing section (4 minute blocks of 20 seconds activity, 10 seconds rest, with 8 rounds in total). Tabata timing is shown to be most efficient for getting all the benefits of HIIT in the least amount of time.

What to expect: Expect to work hard and have fun; this class will get the blood pumping — so you leave feeling energised and invigorated.
Who for? Open to everyone, some prior yoga or strength training experience will be useful but definitely not necessary.
