Class Styles

DYNAMIC

Vinyasa

Vinyasa Flow is about freedom of movement and expression. The style of this practice allows instructors unlimited freedom of expression so no two classes or two teachers are ever the same.

This practice is truly a moving meditation, where you use your breath to truly explore your own body, leaving the constraints of your mind and the outside world at the door. Physically this is a dynamic practice which works on building strength, mobility and flexibility. The pace of this class will allow you to focus your mind, becoming truly present with breath and body as you create your own space to just be.

SUITABILITY

Class is suitable for all levels of ability, modifications are offered.

DYNAMIC

Ashtanga Vinyasa 

Ashtanga Vinyasa is a highly structured flow-style class based around the Ashtanga primary series created by Sri Pattabi Jois.

It is a strong practice which incorporates a range of standing and seated asanas aimed to help develop flexibility, strength and core stability.

The flowing style of this class allows the instructor a freedom of interpretation within the Ashtanga method. Both Clare and Calum who teach this style of practice study and guide under the Tristana method

Ashtanga Full primary is a set sequence of postures developed so that each pose prepares the body for the next pose as the level of intensity increases. We teach a full primary series once a week on a Sunday

SUITABILITY

This class is a challenging class, however, beginners are welcome as variations are given to suit all levels.

If Ashtanga is a practice that is new to you, we recommend attending a few Ashtanga-Vinyasa classes before following into a full Ashtanga class.

MODERATE

Hatha

The term Hatha comes from the Sanskrit ha, meaning “sun,” and tha, meaning “moon,”. Hatha practice is about uniting these energies; dark & light, active & passive, masculine & feminine, in order to find balance.

Through breath and movement you will work into longer holds in postures, unifying the breath and mind to a point of equilibrium. In Hatha we ground ourselves so that we gain a true sense of who and where we are, freeing ourselves to experience the world from a place of honesty and authenticity.

SUITABILITY

This class is suitable for all abilities, modifications will be offered. Personal props are recommended.

MODERATE

Slow Flow

This class provides the space for you to find your breath and learn what it means to move mindfully. This slow, deliberate practice will build a stronger body whilst enabling you a new-found freedom as you learn to flow with grace. Slower than a Vinyasa and with more flow than Hatha, this really is the goldilocks of classes: Deliciously deep stretches linked through fluid flow bringing you equilibrium in both body and mind.

This is a great practice for beginners as your instructor will guide you though the fundamentals of yoga. It is also suitable for those with an established practice who want to slow down and concentrate on how to use your breath to anchor and ground your body, channelling your energy to bring you into the present.

This deeply nourishing practice will leave you feeling stronger, calmer and content.

SUITABILITY

This class is suitable for all abilities, modifications will be offered. Personal props are recommended.

MODERATE

Restorative

This gentle practice creates and holds the space for you to breathe deeply and relax.

These classes work on longer holds in postures in order to lengthen muscles and encourage deep release through connective tissues, breathing length and release into tired and tight limbs.

The meditative element of this class invites you to a place of self-acceptance, working with your breath to increase flexibility and slow down mentally. In this space you will experience deep muscular release and explore new pathways to connection. Many people find the space to heal in these sessions; physically and mentally, whilst working on the practice of remaining present in a truly mindful practice.

SUITABILITY

This class is suitable for all levels of ability. Personal props are highly recommended

RELAXED

Yin

Yin Yoga offers a gateway to tranquillity through passive movement and long holds in postures.

This predominantly grounded practice works on the ancient theory of meridian lines to provide a slow, deep release of fascia and ligaments. Increased mobility is achieved through encouragement of fluid to the joints.

 If you feel particularly sore or tired this class will help you find the space to relax, melt into your mat and let your worries slip away.

SUITABILITY

This class is suitable for all levels of ability. Personal props are highly recommended.

RELAXED

Power

Working with dynamic asana, this class is a total body work out that will help you strengthen, tone and sculpt.

This class uses powerful breath techniques paired with energising movements to build your power and leave you charged for the day.

You improve your flexibility and stamina as you power through jumps, balances and flow.

SUITABILITY

Due to the high impact nature of this class, we wouldn’t recommend it for complete beginners or anyone recovering from an injury.

RELAXED

Rise & Align

Bringing you a dose of sunshine no matter what the weather, this class will help you to stretch and smile into your day. 

Designed to get the blood flowing and the body moving you will work on your mind-body connection as well as flexibility and strength.

We will pay particular attention to alignment, spending a little longer in each posture to allow the space to really focus on this element of practice.
