SUNRISE FLOW

A 60 minute dynamic flow, designed to invigorate the body after sleep, shift stagnant energy and focus the mind for the day ahead. You can expect flowing Sun Salutations, mobility to target major muscles & joints, as well as gentle twists & stretches to refresh the body.

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

A 60 minute grounding flow, focused on creating stability & calm through longer held postures. There is a combination of Yin & Yang elements, designed to balance out the energy of the day, the perfect antidote for modern life and busy minds.

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.

YIN YOGA

A 60 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.

QI GONG

A 60 minute practice is an ancient healing mindful movement based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The forms or sets are designed to cleanse, circulate, and regulate internal energies called “Qi” to achieve health, vitality, and spiritual awareness. It involves using your mind, conscious breathing, and body to direct the flow of energy. Because it’s mostly done standing up, it’s accessible to all levels.

PILATES & YOGA FLOW

A 45 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.

GROUP SOUND BATH (Second Friday every month)

A 60 minute sound bath is a group meditation with sound, a sonic massage, which uses a variety of sound healing instruments to allow the body to move into deep relaxation.

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.
