HATHA FLOW

A 60 or 75 minute flow, carefully sequenced to coordinate movement & breath, offering challenge, calm & steadiness. You can expect grounding flows & somatic movement, exploring mobility, strength & flexibility.

SUNSET FLOW

FOUNDATIONAL FLOW

A 60 minute slow flow, perfect for beginners or those returning to their practice. Explore mobility, building core focus, mind-body connection, with the opportunity to explore alignment & technique. Our Foundational Flow class includes a rolling 5 week course of topics to create a strong foundation for your practice.

YIN YOGA

A 60 or 75 minute releasing practice, featuring slow, long-held postures that target the body’s fascia and connective tissue. A deeply reflective practice that takes you outside your comfort zone via an invitation to be still despite the mental requests to be anything but. May include myofascial release & meditation techniques.

** Our 50 minute Yin & MFR classes on Tuesdays at 11am incorporate Myofascial Release techniques designed to target connective tissue to relieve tightness and sore muscles.

PILATES & YOGA FLOW

A 50 minute fusion focusing on either pilates or yoga, but influenced by both traditions, as well as functional movement designed to build effective and intelligent core strength & mobility. The perfect lunchtime workout.

RESTORATIVE YOGA & REIKI (Last Friday every month)

A 90 minute masterclass exploring restorative yoga poses to cultivate loving awareness, and release stress & tension in the body and mind, as well as Shamballa Reiki to promote further healing and balancing.

KIRTAN ~ SUNDAY SOUL SESSIONS (Last Sunday every month)

A gathering to dive into the depths of sacred sound. Offered on the last Sunday of each month, we will explore different sound expressions such as nada yoga (yoga of sound), mantra practices, kirtan, chants, songs & deep listening.  No chant/singing experience necessary – you are welcome to participate or simply enjoy the atmosphere.

Each class offers a comprehensive yoga practice of asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath control) and meditation, with subtle weavings of yoga philosophy & tradition. Teachers bring experience, as well as their own passion and magic to the practice in a down-to-earth and inclusive manner.

All our classes are suitable for both newer and experienced students, as our teachers layer sequences, strategically using props & variations to ensure the experience is accessible for all. We always encourage you to practice at a level to suit your own body & needs, honouring where you are at every time you step on the mat.
