GENTLE YOGA

A slower paced practice, this classical yoga class allows you to spend more time focusing on gentle movement of the body in connection with breath. This class is perfect for an aging body, those with an injury or medical condition, or those who have never done yoga before. 

MAT PILATES - COMING BACK SOON

A fun, energising and empowering class based on authentic pilates principles, this class will help shape, shift and strengthen. It's all about safely challenging yourself to help build core strength, improve muscle tone, increase your range of motion, and build stamina. Be prepared to sweat, smile and move to the groove. A little heat is added (approx 28oC) to help safely warm the body. Please bring water and a full size towel.

MEDITATION - COMING BACK SOON

Beneath the ocean's choppy surface is a world of calm and stillness. This is where meditation can take us. Our guided meditations provide a safe space to sit down and bear witness to whatever unfolds. Meditation can help bring us back to our centre, anchor ourselves in the present moment and create more mindfulness in our daily lives. Classes may include a combination of breath work, guided meditations, or Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep).

 

SCULPT YOGA

In our Sculpt Yoga class we add a little spice by including some heat (the room will be approx 28oC) to build cardiovascular strength and help with the detoxification process. Still a structured yoga class with breath work and asanas, we do throw in a little more strength and core work with the added option of using light hand or ankle weights at various times. Weights provided (or BYO). Please bring water and a full size towel. 

 

SLOW FLOW

This gentle style of practice involves pairing breath with movement to move in a fluid and mindful way. Slow Flow generally involves warming up with stretches and sun salutations before moving through a few playful sequences designed to build strength and agility. Perfect for those wanting a slower, more mindful pace. Classes are 60 minutes unless specified, and practiced with just a touch of mellow heat (22-24oC).

VINYASA FLOW

Our all-levels Vinyasa classes are suitable for both beginning and more advanced students. Each class emphasises the importance of breath, heat (tapas), self-enquiry, focus (drishti), and core stability. Usually commencing with some stretching and sun salutations, the class then moves into more dynamic sequencing to help build strength and flexibility. Whilst more advanced options are given to those students who are ready, we always make sure a beginning or injured student is well looked after with modifications given. Classes are 60 minutes unless specified, and practiced with the room heated to approx 28oC to help open the body and promote detoxification. A towel and water are recommended for class.

YIN

Drift through our Yin class, where most of the poses are practiced on the floor and held for between two and five minutes. Yin yoga targets the connective tissue—in particular the fascia—and assists in releasing tension, improving range of motion and developing the ability to be still and surrender. Simple yet challenging, this class is deeply grounding. It will have you drifting out of the room on a tide of bliss. Classes vary from 60 to 75 minutes, and practiced with the room at a comfortable 22-24oC.
