"It's not your history, but your presence on your mat that matters." - Sri K Pattabhi Jois

Haha Yoga- 'Ha' means sun and 'Tha' means moon, polar opposites.

Absolute Beginners Hatha Yoga: Gradually introduces the breathing practices and basic yoga postures with an
emphasis on proper alignment to ensure a safe and enjoyable practice going forward.
A series of classes where each week builds off of the previous. 
 
Gentle & Restorative Yoga:The Gentle Yoga class is suitable for all ages and abilities. The practice cultivates body awareness
to enable the student to safely let go of tension and tightness. During the class you will be guided through a
series of gentle postures (asanas), breath and energy practices (pranayama) and a guided relaxation (Yoga Nidra).
 
Yin Yoga: A slow paced class. Yin postures are held longer to cultivate a meditative mindset and deeper physical opening. Wearing warmer clothes is suggested as there is not as much movement in this class. Suitable for all, particularly those with tight hips, hamstrings and shoulders. Relax and unwind. Yin releases stress and tension from the body and mind. Come and enjoy a peaceful space and a practice that will leave you feeling calm and refreshed
 
Hatha Yoga-All Levels: 
Build strength and stability. Increase flexibility of body and mind!
Incorporating asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), and meditation (not just sitting on your cushion!) This class will be a combination of flow and relaxation. Open to all.
 

Intermediate Vinyasa Flow Yoga: In this class students will move through flows with a focus on strength, flexibility, alignment, and maintaining connection to the breath. They will be introduced to more advanced asana practices, as well as encouraged to find their own independent rhythm based off the breath throughout class. This class is for those with previous yoga or movement experience. 

Vinyasa Flow Yoga:  Emphasizes the vinyasa- sequences of poses with the breath. The flow of the
positions builds heat, improves flexibility, strength and postural awareness.  A 'go' attitude.
 
Kundalini Yoga: Kundalini yoga is the name of a style of Hatha Yoga originated by the Sikh Master Yogi Bhajan.
Working on the energy body, its purpose is to awaken the inner power by means of postures, breath control and meditation.
 
Ashtanga Based Yoga: A dynamic energetic class. Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern
world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath (Ujjayi) with a progressive
series of postures (vinyasa) - a process producing internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs.
 
Kids Yoga teaches children breathing techniques, yoga postures and flows, relaxation and visualisation, often through games.
It builds mental, physical and emotional fitness, and lays a foundation for a lifetime of health. It teaches life skills and
offers children a non-competitive anti-dote to their modern day pressures
 
Iyengar Yoga increases suppleness, strength and stamina, improves posture and concentration and quietens the mind to promote well-being. This style of yoga, named after  B.K.S. Iyengar, the teacher who refined this method, emphasises precision and alignment. Postures are held for longer than in some other methods, to allow muscles to lengthen and relax, and to focus awareness.  Props such as blocks and belts may be used to improve students' understanding of poses or to help students achieve the benefits of the classical pose.

Pregnancy Yoga
Prenatal yoga is a great way to put time aside for yourself and your baby. Practicing Yoga in pregnancy helps to strengthen and stretch muscles, release tension and maintain good posture. Prenatal yoga also teaches you to relax on command and keep a positive outlook while clearing the mind of the stresses associated with pregnancy and motherhood.
 In our classes we teach yoga exercises that help prepare you for labour, delivery and motherhood. Regular attendance ensures that you will practice these exercises consistently for greater benefits.
 
Experienced yoginis or those new to Yoga are all welcome to these classes.
