Slow Flow

Perfect if you are looking to unwind and recharge. This class is a mellow flow that cultivates awareness, strength and mobility through slow, focused movements with attention to breath and alignment. The class includes floor work, mindfulness and a focus on relaxation.

Expect to be guided through a nurturing practice that will begin with pranayama breathing techniques before transitioning through a sequence of postures. Depth and complexity are layered to lengthen and strengthen major muscle groups.

*Suitable for beginners

Vinyasa Flow 

A dynamic, flowing practice to build strength and agility. Expect to create heat from the inside out. This class has a focus on finding balance and freedom within poses, leaving you feeling mindful, strong, empowered.

You will be guided through creative and inspired sequences that will begin with relaxation and breath work before moving into a dynamic, flowing standing sequence, a wind-down sequence and finishing with everyone’s favourite final relaxation, savasana.

*Suitable for those with some yoga experience

Yin Restore

A tranquil class to help you truly stop for a while. Yin yoga is a slow, grounding and deeply introspective. Integrated in the longer, more passive holds is a meditative awareness of breath, mindfulness and presence.

This class targets the connective tissues of the body – the tendons, fascia and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. You will emerge feeling soft, open and deeply calm.

*Suitable for beginners

Slow to Yin 

A combination of slow moving sequences to begin with to bring awareness & strength to the body, followed by longer holds and more stillness as the class progresses. Bringing balance through movement and stillness means both body & mind gain the benefits of this class, leaving you feeling energised, calm and nurtured in the same session (a staff fav!)

Gentle Yoga 

These classes move a little slower, offering intentional cues to guide and support you.

Blending accessible hatha yoga style poses, some pranayama (breathing), slow flow movements, as well as mindfulness – gentle yoga is a beautiful mixed class that’s accessible and inclusive for all folks. Age, injury, illness, fatigue, disability, or skill level are not barriers to participation. Great for anyone new or unsure of yoga. Our community is safe, judgement free and supportive.

Prenatal Yoga 

These classes are for women at all stages in their pregnancy. A mother needs a Village and we believe making time for self care in pregnancy is important. Prenatal yoga strengthens the body in preparation for birth, calms the mind, relieves aches, pains and stress. It also encourages optimal positions to create space for baby during labour and helps us to use our breath more effectively. These classes are suitable for absolute beginners through to seasoned yogis.

Mums, Bubs & Tots Yoga 

Doing yoga with your baby is a beautiful opportunity to leave the house for some quality bonding time, while also regaining strength, moving your body and connecting with other mummas. Yoga supports a faster postpartum recovery, increases energy, relieves aches & tension, helps to regulate the nervous system and encourages better sleep. These classes are now open to tots which can become a little bit of a juggle at times, but we just work with whatever is happening and try to keep you moving! Suitable for all mummas from 6-8 weeks postpartum.

Kids Yoga 

Our kids’ yoga classes are playful, creative and fun. The focus is on allowing little yogis an opportunity to move their body in ways that feel good and to start to identify and connect more deeply with their emotional self. We use stories, music, games, nature based activities and craft to keep the classes engaging and to help explore mindfulness and personal development themes in interesting and age-appropriate ways. Open to primary school aged children (approx 5-12yrs), all abilities welcome – please be in touch if you have any questions.

Teen Yoga & Wellbeing 

Join us as we create a safe, supportive and nurturing space for young people to gather, move, deepen awareness of their body and mind and grow and share with peers. Our gentle yoga + teen wellbeing classes help teens explore aspects of physical health and mental wellbeing and offer an opportunity to relax and unwind, build strength and flexibility and connect with other young people in the area. We cover a range of health and wellbeing topics in these sessions and are open to ideas and input from young people themselves to help make them relevant, interesting and effective.
