What we offer

Yoga

We offer a wide range of yoga classes with something to suit everyone. We have a purpose-built hot yoga studio where we offer everything from Hot Yoga Vinyasa, Hot Power Yoga, Hot Hatha Yoga, Hot Restorative Yoga and Hot Yin Yoga in 37-40 degree heat. The heat is brilliant for warming up muscles, increasing strength and flexibility and working up a sweat. If hot isn’t your thing and you’re looking for something slightly gentler we have Hatha Yoga, Warm Yoga and Relaxation (a gentler 28-30 degrees) and a specific Women’s Wellbeing and Yoga class. We also offer seated yoga and gentle yoga classes, perfect for those with limited mobility, those recovering from an injury or surgery or for who just want a slightly slower paced class. Our yoga classes are suitable for all levels, we have expert teachers who can adapt and guide throughout so you will leave feeling relaxed, recharged and energized.

HOT YOGA VINYASA FLOW

Hot Yoga Vinyasa classes aim to be strong, but accessible and fun, with an emphasis on exploring the balance of strength and softness within poses and helping students listen to and become more aware of their bodies and breath. Practiced in 37 degree heat the vinyasa element focuses on using the breath to flow the different postures together.

HOT YOGA RESTORATIVE

Slow down the pace of life and come to your mat to relax. Restorative yoga combines yoga, breathing & meditation to integrate the mind body and soul. Particularly focusing on soothing the nervous system, creating a safe space for the body to move into a place of rest and digest. Allow the heat to open the body, soothe the mind and take you to a state of deep relaxation.

HOT POWER YOGA

HATHA YOGA

Our Hatha Yoga classes are practiced in either a warm room, hot room or at normal room temperature. They are a dynamic experience that has a varied series of postures designed to challenge and lift both body, mind and soul. Each class will be different, will challenge you, will be physically strong and allow you leave your practice calm, centred and relaxed . Classes are suitable for all levels – all you need to do is come with a can-do attitude. Classes are designed to be fun and enjoyable… but with the promise of getting a sweat on.

yin yoga

Practised in either a warm room, hot room or at normal room temperature. Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses that are held for longer periods of time (typically 5 minutes) in an effort to release deep tissues, fascia, ligaments, joints and bone. The heated room complements the Yin poses, loosening the muscles and promoting the release of the deep tissues whilst relieving stress and anxiety, increasing circulation, balancing the emotions and building stamina.

Original 26&2 Hot Yoga

The style formerly known as Bikram Yoga, originally conceived in Calcutta by the Ghosh lineage, is a series of 26 ancient hatha yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises, practised in the heat to allow for deeper and safer stretching.

Every muscle, tendon and ligament are worked to increase strength and flexibility; each system in the body is activated and stimulated to improve cardiovascular fitness, boost metabolism, balance hormones, elevate your mood and enhance your body’s natural detoxification pathways.

Despite being a beginners’ class, expect to be challenged by this dynamic, holistic and rounded approach to health and fitness.

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.

SIT AND FIT: SEATED YOGA

Seated yoga is a gentle practice in which postures are performed while seated and/or with the aid of a chair. Chair yoga classes are suitable for those with physical disabilities or who typically might find a typical yoga session too challenging. It is also a great form of yoga for beginners or anyone who wants to focus on a gentle practice.

FLEX AND STRETCH: GENTLE YOGA

yoga for backs

A 45 minute yoga class that focuses on the back. Open to all but especially those who suffer from back and spinal problems. This class will focus on postures that will improve strength, increase mobility and address your mental well being.

Stretching correctly will support the back and spine – remember the spine keeps us upright so its essential we all do as much as we can do to safeguard it. We will concentrate on some of the postures we don’t really like in an effort to strengthen the areas around the back that supports us . We don’t like them as they don’t feel comfortable but we will take things gently and grow over the weeks together.

This class offers you the opportunity to gently release the tension around problem areas, build strength and confidence in your ability to improve not only the physical pain but the way you look at it.  We will learn to laugh , accept our limitations and be amazed at our ability to grow.
