Hot Yogalates

Hot Yogalates is practised in 37 degree heat and is a perfect fusion of Yoga and Pilates combining the yogic focus on enhanced mind and body awareness, strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, with Pilates techniques to improve posture and create a strong, stable foundation for movement. The heat will help you work up a sweat which allows the body to cleanse itself and release harmful toxins and waste from the skin. It gives you an Immunity boost: Viruses cannot survive in high temperatures so increasing the body's core temperature helps fight off infections, which are pushed out through the skin. It opens the body's connective tissues helping the muscles get in to more strenuous postures and positions. Hot Pilates can also result in weight loss because stretching deeper helps to build more muscle, which in turn burns more fatty acids and breaks down glucose.

Hatha...Two breaths more

Hatha yoga is about the mind, body and soul working together in harmony. A regular practice with Two Breaths More will help your body to become stronger and more flexible, and breathing techniques will help to calm your mind.

During our yoga practice we often experience a little discomfort in a pose, believing that we are holding it to our maximum capability. I invite you to take two breaths more to help you stay in the pose for a fraction longer and step beyond your comfort zone.

By taking two breaths more, energy shifts to the upper part of your brain, forming and reinforcing new neural pathways, which will increase willpower and confidence.

This is yoga with Two Breaths More: Promoting calmness and stillness, helping you to get the most out of your practice and comfortably achieve postures beyond your expectations.

Relaxation Meditation and Mindfulness

Meditation can take many different forms, it isn't all sitting in silence and completely closing your mind down (which without a lot of practice, isn't an easy thing to do!). In these sessions, we will cover different types of meditation, with you being guided through the practice each week.

A few examples of the types of meditation we will cover include breathing meditation, chakra meditation and body scan meditation where we sync the body and mind. We will also introduce the concept of Yoga Nidra (also commonly known as 'yogic sleep') which is a powerful technique for relaxation and very easy to practice.

No previous meditation experience is required for these classes, just bring yourself and perhaps an extra comfortable layer to keep warm as we will be still for the majority of the class. These sessions are aimed at giving you a peaceful break, but also bringing a sense of renewal for the rest of your day.
