Alignment focused, deeply strengthening and sweaty. This is a set sequence of postures designed to build heat and tone the entire body.
Ashtanga Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that uses a powerful sequence of postures combined with breath to create an internal heat that opens the muscles and purifies the body. Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient systematic practice of yoga that slowly builds in difficulty to allow students to safely access their full potential. Focus on breath, balance, and energy allows students to bring all their attention to the flow of postures in moving meditation. Ashtanga yoga is a rigorous, physically demanding practice.
Mysore self-practice is the traditional way of practising ashtanga yoga and offers a highly personalised approach without the price tag attached to one-to-ones, and with all of the group energy of a conventional class. Here, you will be addressed by name, the teacher will know your practice inside out, and best of all, this "class" is quiet – there's very little talking and no new age music. It is a wonderful way for beginners and advanced practitioners alike to develop a self-practice that you can then take anywhere.
Deeply grounding and the oldest known form of Yoga, Hatha is a wonderful way to start you journey into Yoga as we spend a longer time in postures compared the quicker sequences like Vinyasa, Rocket & Ashtanga.
This class is always very popular. Come and take an hour thats all about you. This class is a the perfect mix of heating and nurturing. We spend the first half of class building some heat and energy, and we then flow to floor to Rest, stretch & reconnect. All levels welcome.
Suited to those who have never done Pilates before, or not for a long time, as well as those with injuries. This gentle class will teach you the basics, and start to increase muscle tone and length, body awareness and knowledge.

Ante & Post Natal
During pregnancy the body experiences many hormonal & muscular changes causing muscles to weaken, ligaments to stretch & joints to overload.
Ante Natal classes are functional in order to keep your body moving, yet stabilised while pregnant, focusing on supportive movements and how to move safely prior and post birth.*
Post Natal classes will focus on regaining alignment & muscle tone after birth. Little ones are welcome to come along too! And you can join us for tea & cake afterwards.**
