We welcome all new students
New to yoga
If you are new to yoga or haven’t attended a class for a while we would recommend you join a beginners class for a couple of months until you are comfortable with the yoga practice and feel ready to advance. If your unsure which class suits you then please contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
We have classes that are suitable for all levels, if the beginners class doesn’t suit your schedule please come along to one of our mixed classes. Yoga can always be modified for the student so there is always beginners and advanced options, just let the teacher know and they will look after you.
Yoga styles at our studio
The main style in our studio is ashtanga. Ashtanga is a beautiful fluid practice that is taught in a set sequence. Postures are linked together with the breath and are synchronised in a series of movements. As you learn you will naturally go deeper into the series and your practice becomes a moving meditation.
Yin yoga is all about slowing down, connecting with your breath and stretching for long periods of time, allowing participant to release tension and move deeply into poses. Yin yoga is a passive form of yoga (rather than dynamic or yang), it challenges you to find peace in what may be a slightly uncomfortable position for 3 to 5 minutes,
Mindfulness yoga is a gentle vinyasa yoga flow style class, movements will be made up of a number of different yoga postures designed to give you a great whole body stretch combined with mindful awareness and meditations, our classes give you time to step away from the stresses and strains of everyday life so you can leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Your pregnancy is a time to be enjoyed and relished.
