Iyengar Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga based around posture alignment and the development of strength, flexibility, and stability. A great practice for rehilibitation of injuries and for developing a strong base for other hatha yoga pratices, such as Vinyasa.

A meditative slow-paced class that explores long, deep stretching to enhance joint mobility, improve flexibility, and healing to the body’s connective tissues. You will enjoy a deep stretch especially through the hips, pelvis and spine. A perfect antidote to stressful busy lifestyles, runner’s stiffness, and cluttered minds.
Restorative yoga is meditative poses held for extended periods of time. Both soothing and regenerating, restorative poses help bring balance to our demanding daily lives. By letting go of muscular tension with the support of props, the body is given a chance to rest deeply, allowing chronic stress to dissipate and healing to occur.
A practice of deep relaxation in which you are systematically guided to relax your body and mind. Aspects of the practice include sense withdrawal, relaxation of the body, breath awareness, the awareness of sensations, guided imagery, and visualization. Many benefits are associated with the practice and its associated levels of relaxation. Yoga Nidra can be a powerful tool for transforming and re-creating your life.
A wonderful and uplifting “Kirtan”, a sacred community chanting experience with Franko Heke from The Gaya Tree. Kirtan is a very simple & powerful way to meditate. It uses the power of mantra to bring the mind into balance using the vibrations of sound. Kirtan is a great way to connect to your inner self and recharge for the week.
Kundalini Yoga & Meditation
Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) uses movement, sound current (mantra), breath and meditation to relax and heal your mind and body to allow the spirit to flow freely. A great way to recharge and heal your body quickly by stimulating the glandular, nervous and immune systems, improving strength and flexibility, and centering the mind.
Sadhana keeps the mind clear to accurately guide our actions and go beyond our ego and limitations. It is an opportunity to clean up our inner world before we engage in the outer world. Sadhana begins with Japji (traditional Sikh prayer), followed by Kundalini Yoga, chanting and meditation. We require you to have attended at least one Kundalini Yoga class before coming along. Sadhana is guided as a self lead practice.

MUMS and BUBS + Tots

It is a great chance to discover how to become centered and present in their world, cultivating a mindfulness that enhances your parenting on and off the mat.
Kid’s Yoga is FUN! Classes use stories and music to accompany our fun and educational “journeys” to exotic lands. The children use their imaginations and Animal Yoga postures to learn new vocabulary, develop motor and movement skills, and to understand balance and relaxation through meditation and breath. Partner poses and group meditations give children the experience of teamwork and trust with others.
Teens are welcome at ALL adult classes on the regular class timetable.
