A workout inspired vinyasa class with extra repetitions to build heat
This class will include everything you would expect to see in a vinyasa class – but more! Warm ups, core, pranayama, standing poses, arm balances, inversions, twists, core, backbends, seated poses, and something to challenge everyone. See the addition of repetitions like lunges, double chaturangas, one-legged squats, leg lifts, spider-man planks and crazy side plank killers to get your heart rate up. It should challenge everyone at any level. Remember, you can take breaks in child’s pose and just breathe whenever you need to, re-joining when you’re ready, but always keep trying.View pricing Book now
A dynamic and uplifting practice that links breath to movement
The character of each class is unique to individual teachers, however variations will always be offered so you can still practice at your own level. Faster than our slow flow class, there may be a lot to learn in the first few classes you take. The more you practice, the more fun it is! Classes are held at a moderate pace with poses linked together for a continuous flow.View pricing Book now
Developing a level of bodily awareness to be able to manipulate one’s own body and find equilibrium using only your hands while in an inverted position is no easy feat!
We offer our Handstands class in a workshop format, involving drills and skills to help you learn how to handstand. More importantly, it is a learning of your body as it is now, and how you can condition it to build into a safe, controlled handstand.
This class is suitable for all fitness levels, but be warned – it comes with a lot of hard work. You will be taught a systematic approach on building from the base up how to achieve a handstand and as far beyond as you are willing to push. With hard work, comes the richness of reward.View pricing Book now

A deep, thorough, myofascial stretch for your entire body
A slow-paced class where poses (mostly seated) are held between 3-8 minutes. You are guided through an intelligent sequence of simple poses, the after effect similar to that of acupuncture, as the joints decompress and open. Not only does Yin Yoga benefit your physical body, but also encourages the mind to be completely relaxed. Patience is the key to this practice.View pricing Book now
Slow Flow is a time for you to slow down the mind and body, checking back in with yourself, in your own time, on the mat.
This practice hydrates the body and relaxes the mind, whilst subtly building strength and steadiness as you slow down over the hour. There is a little flow to find simple alignment in familiar postures, allowing you to move with grace and ease. Whilst this class is amazing for the mind, it also has a surprising way of deepening your practice and building inner strength.View Pricing Book now

Kids Yoga is a fun way of introducing playful exercises that help children with movement, creativity and relaxation.
Kids Yoga is a fun way of introducing playful exercises that help children with movement, creativity and relaxation. There will be storytelling, where children are encouraged to express themselves without judgement, in a non-competitive environment. They will learn about respecting their own bodies and each other, and help them to build friendships through activities and connection. Yoga will also help them with sleep, posture, anxiety and even asthma.
With the multitude of demands that are placed on children day by day, it is important for them to have a safe space to gather, where they feel nurtured and supported. They will also come away with many tools and techniques that will assist them throughout their lives. We like to think of these classes as an ongoing development for your children to grow resilient, confident and happy. For children ages 4-10, we encourage enrolment to the full course (which follows the school term).View pricing Book now

With this knowledge behind you, you will be able to transform how you see yourself, and the greater world, even amongst all the stress and struggles we encounter each day.

With consistent practice, you will learn strategies for reducing stress and anxiety, ways to settle an overactive or overwhelmed mind, and gain a feeling of clarity, focus and a deeper connection to everything and everyone around you. This class is suitable for complete beginners, as well as those with an existing meditation practice.View pricing Book now
