Monday 6.30pm: Gentle Hot Yoga with Jess


What to expect…

 


A relaxed and stretchy class, starting off on the mat and building up gradually to Sun Salutations followed by postures such as the Virabhadrasana asanas. Jess likes to start and end practice with some chanting which encourages the yoga students to feel peaceful, calm and tranquil. Also, d
uring class relaxation, Jessica often uses holistic therapy techniques such as aromotherapy, reiki and sound healing in Savasana so that students leave her class feeling re-aligned, re-balanced and re-newed. Accordingly, this class is recommended for beginners and also those who are currently experiencing stress, depression and/or anxiety. 

 

Tuesday 10.00am: Yin Yoga with Carli

 

What to expect…

 

Carli
Yin yoga, a Taoist tradition, allows us to access deeper layers of the physical body where connective tissue repairs itself, improving a free flow of energy inherent in us all. The pace of Yin yoga is quite slow and postures are held for 3-5 minutes. This class is mostly mat based with very few, if any, standing postures. Yin classes are much more meditative than classes such as Ashtanga yoga and so this class is also recommended for people seeking to manage day to day stress. 

 

Wednesday 10.00am: Traditional Pilates with Paula

 


What to expect.
..

 

Paula  in Side Plank (Vasisthasana): Strengthens the arms and core,  stretches and strengthens the wrists and improves balance.Our Wednesday and Sunday classes are all held in a non-hot room. Hot Pilates is great for really stretching out and challenging the body but it is also good to practise Pilates in a room temperature environment. In Pilates there is a strong focus on developing strength through core engagement. Students must learn how to breathe and when to breathe in a Pilates class. In a hot room, it can be difficult for a new student to concentrate on technique because they are trying to adapt to the temperature of the room and so their mind is more easily distracted.

 

This is not an easy class  – you will be worked hard! However, because Paula gives three levels to work at (beginners, intermediate and advanced) this class is suitable for new students. 

 

Wednesday 6.00pm: Traditional Yoga with Camilla

 


What to expect.
..

 

Our Wednesday and Sunday classes are all held in a non-hot room. Hot yoga is great for really stretching out the body but it is also good to perform the asana practice (the postures) in a room temperature environment. Connection with the breath is fundamental to yoga practice. In a hot room, it can be difficult for a new student to concentrate on making this connection because they are trying to adapt to the temperature of the room and so their mind is more easily distracted.

 

Camilla believes that yoga is not about physical strength or acrobatics but about spending time on your mat, sitting still, listening and ultimately experiencing the power of the present. Her classes accommodate all levels of abilities and include elements of basic breathing, pranayama, meditation and mantra.  

 

Thursday 7.30pm: Gentle Hot Yoga with Ryan

 


What to expect.
..


Ryan will take you through about four rounds of slow paced sun salutations and then move onto perform some gentle yoga postures. This class is a litte more fast paced than the Monday 6.30pm but is still fine for a beginner to attend. Ryan’s classes have a strong focus on alignment and he will adjust you in a posture in order to assist you in achieving the correct performance of a pose if needed. After you have tried a few gentle classes, try Ryan’s more challenging 6.15pm “Funky Beats” class. 

 

Friday 6.00pm: Candlelit Yoga with Carli

 


What to expect.
..

 

This is a Yin based class held in candlelight in order to promote a deep sense of relaxation and inner peace. The pace of Yin yoga is quite slow and postures are held for 3-5 minutes. This class is very gentle with few, if any, standing postures. This class is with Carli who believes that experiencing a deep sense of peace and well-being is the ultimate aim of yoga. The class runs on Fridays at  6.00pm and is a great way to unwind after a busy and stressful week.

 

 

Saturday 9.00am: Hot Yoga with Jo

 


What to expect.
..

 

Jo’s class is available to all levels and is perfect for beginners.  Jo’s style of yoga is formed on the basis of Hatha yoga, intertwined with some flow and a little hint of Yin.  In addition to asana (posture) practice, Jo’s classes include simple pranayama (breath work) meditation and relaxation.  Her aim is to accommodate all levels of abilities, wants and needs through the staging of postures, variation and ultimately making you feel welcome and wanting more from your yoga practice. Another great class for stress relief.
