Complete beginners should check out one of our beginner classes. Just show up 15 minutes before the start of class and we’ll show you around. The very basics of yoga are taught in beginner classes with a focus on basic alignment and breathing.
Candlelight Restorative Yoga
Relax and rejuvenate and connect with your Being in our Candlelight Restorative yoga class. Most of the poses are done on the floor, using props, supplied by the studio. Suitable for all yoga levels.
This is a mixture of yoga styles. Suitable for those who have tried some beginner yoga and would like try something a little more challenging. Please try our variety of teachers as they all have their own style of teaching hatha yoga.
Flow yoga is more physically demanding. We move from one posture to another integrating the breath. It develops strength, stamina and flexibility. It is preferable to have some knowledge of the poses before taking a flow class. Flow yoga builds strength and flexibility quickly but it is not suitable for those with injuries or those with limited yoga knowledge. Hatha yoga classes can prepare you for flow classes. Flow classes have less instruction than hatha due to the nature of the practice.
Core Strength Yoga
Core strength yoga is suitable for those with some yoga experience, and an acceptable knowledge of the poses is recommended. This class is more physically demanding as it incorporates core work and long holds to build strength and stamina.
Muscle Melt Yoga
This class is good for everyone no matter what their yoga experience. We will target specific muscles softening and releasing the fascia around them, followed by stretching. This is an excellent class for people with limited mobility, athletes wanting to improve performance and those wanting to improve their general range of motion. You are never too old or too young to move without pain. Taught by a licensed massage therapist.
Yin yoga is an excellent supplement to all the active yoga classes available. Try out our Yin Yoga and go home restored and refreshed. Yin is a slow-paced practice, where poses are held for a longer period of time. The extended holds assist in moving the connective tissue which is wrapped around all our tissues and organs. This class is good for all levels and all poses are performed on the mat (no standing poses). The use of props is encouraged to allow for comfort and ease.
Meditation and Mindfulness
Meditation is one of the eight limbs of yoga and is a perfect complement to any posture-based yoga class. The physical, mental and emotional benefits of a regular mindfulness and meditation practice are innumerable. Benefits can include better sleep, less stress and anxiety and improved concentration. This class is for anyone who wants to start a meditation practice or compliment their already existing one. This class runs on the second Friday of each month, please check our schedule page for more information.
Our warm yoga classes are suitable for those with a little yoga experience. We do advise those new to yoga to start in our beginning classes. We heat the room to between 80 and 85 degrees. Please drink water before and after class to stay hydrated and practice mindfully. This class is a mixed level class.
Yoga Nidra is suitable for all levels. The focus is on complete relaxation and the entire class takes place lying on the floor. It is a great way to de-stress, relax and increase awareness. It is the perfect complement to a meditation practice, and a way to learn about yoga beyond the physical asanas. ('asana' is Sanskrit for poses)
