vinyasa flow

Vinyasa is a flow style of yoga class where your body movements and breath are synchronised into a moving meditation. This class moves from pose to pose seamlessly with each posture held for no more than five to eight breaths. Expect a fully balanced class of forward bending, twists and backbends with an opportunity for inversions and arm balances. 

power flow

A more athletic style of yoga practice, this fun and challenging class will have you moving, sweating and breathing like you never have before. With a creative mix of traditional and innovative yoga postures, get ready to play with and flow through many asanas with a powerful approach and attitude.

Each class is designed to create strength. This in turn will help to prevent injury, build fitness levels, release tension, and create more flexibility and stamina. Prepare to discover muscles you didn’t know you had!

aerial yoga

Take traditional style yoga poses into the air using the low to the ground aerial hammock. This class focuses on integrating flexibility, alignment, strength and control and allows students to access poses they may not otherwise be able to do.  Aerial yoga is an all-around workout that will ease tension in the spine and joints, build core & upper body strength, and help you become flexible and focused. All shapes, sizes, and ages can try this class.  It is a fun practice that can actually be more accessible than floor based yoga. 

core fitness

A workout designed to connect you to the powerhouse of strength, stability and injury prevention: the core. This session will work all the muscles that support your core, including the abdominals, glutes and back muscles. It takes the foundations of Pilates, body weight training and dance and brings you that next level burn that is way more that just an ab workout. It will challenge you to connect your mind and body and leave you with better posture, muscle tone and flexibility.

circuit training + trx

A workout designed to build strength, cardiovascular fitness and lean muscle. This full body session uses dumbbells, bands, kettlebells, TRX and body weight exercises to challenge and change your body. It will set the bar for the rest of your workouts. Intense in the way that’s perfect for you, a session for all fitness levels that will leave you feeling energised and empowered.

mindful yin stretch

Mindful Yin Stretch is designed for all levels and abilities with a slow, accessible pace, and with most of the poses done while seated or laying down. This practice is inspired by ‘Yin’ yoga and includes simple poses with longer 3 – 5 minute holds to stretch the dense connective tissue (facia) of the whole body.

We will use lots of props (blocks, straps, cushions, rollers, and balls) so you can relax, feel supported, and get deeper into the body. Throughout the long holds, there is a strong focus on being mindful, coming back to the breath, staying present in the moment, and letting go of tension in the body.

This class will help you to slow down, relax and go inwards. Science has proven that regular mindfulness practice can have powerful long-lasting effects. Mindfulness helps to activate our rest-and-digest system and begin the process of ushering our body back to a more natural and calm state. Through this practice we begin to notice our body and mind more easily let go of daily stressors and challenges. We feel calmer. We can focus more clearly. We can be more creative. We feel more balanced and comfortable in our skin.

 

breathwork

This class will help improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During a breathwork class we intentionally change our breathing patterns to bring about improvements in emotional state and to decrease levels of stress.

We breathe on average 20,000 times a day yet most of us are unaware of our breaths incredible ability to transform the way we feel. Many people breathe in shallow and constricted patterns and 1 in 10 people have symptoms of dysfunctional breathing that can impact our bodies ability to funciton optimally.

Becoming the master of your breath in these sessions will help you to handle life off the mat with more calm and control.

dance fitness

Shake that booty to some of your favourite tunes. Expect lots of laughs, lots of sass, and a work out for your whole body. Throughout the year we will be holding different dance style classes for you to join. Usually these classes run in blocks of 3 or 4 so you can learn a choreographed routine.

singing bowls
Our singing bowls experience is not to be missed. Lay down and relax for an hour long immersive experience that will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvinated and relaxed. Your practitioner will position the bowls around you while you lay down on your back. The sounds of the bowls, played in a purposeful tune, bring many benefits to the body and mind. The benefits of the sounds and vibrations of singing bowls include:
– Releases physical, mental and emotional tension.
– Opens and improves functions of all the systems in the body.
– Reduces pain
– Regulates blood sugar levels
– Improves Sleep
– Reduces blood pressure
– Improves energy flow
kids yoga
Each class will be themed around a great story and adventure for your little ones to really have fun while they practice yoga. There will be activities, games and lots of creative yoga poses to keep them entertained.
Studio owner Charlie is a specially trained Kids yoga teacher and loves to share her knowledge with the little ones. A self confessed ‘big kid’ she really knows how to deliver the message of yoga in a fun and friendly way.
Classes are suitable for kids aged between 5 and 11. If your little one is under 5 they can still attend the class but yourself (parent) or a guardian must remain present.
