YOGA

Restore, Balance and Breathe

Hatha

A mind-body practice that utilises the whole body, where breath and movement are linked and one movement flows to the next. Each posture is designed to work with the fundamentals of the body, to align, strengthen and promote flexibility and balance.

Yin/Yang

A slower paced, flow style, gentle movement to warm the body and activate the muscles, is combined with more passive yin postures that allow for stillness and slowing down. Allowing for a deeper stretch of the muscles and layers of connective tissue and fascia.

Yin

A predominantly floor based practice where postures are held for longer periods of time. Yin yoga integrates the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, expanding the body’s own natural resources to balance prana (life force energy), and actively nourish the internal energy systems and layers of muscle and connective tissue within the body.

Qigong

An ancient Chinese practice that combines meditative, conscious movement and breath control. Designed to promote a feeling of calm and wellbeing while seeking to balance and harmonise chi (life force energy).

Intended to promote optimal health and longevity.

Relaxation, Meditation and Movement

 

Restorative Yoga

Practiced with the use of props, bolsters, pillows, blankets and blocks to support the body and allow you to be completely relaxed and comfortable. Minimal postures are practiced allowing for deep rest and rejuvenation. Intended to promote a restful night’s sleep.

Meditation

A class for you to completely surrender. Working both with soft movement as well as stillness to cultivate gentle awareness and clarity of mind and emotion. As much as the body needs movement, the mind also requires stillness and a space to relax and be present.

Strength, Power and Flexibility

Power Vinyasa

Designed to promote anatomical strength, alignment, flexibility and balance. A strong, dynamic steady practice where breath links to movement and one posture flows to the next. A more vigorous class designed to build heat in the body and get the blood flowing. Don’t be surprised if you sweat!

Pilates

Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise which concentrates on strengthening the body with a particular focus on core strength, postural alignment and flexibility. Slow movement linked with controlled breath is a key focus. Classes often also incorporate the use of Pilates equipment.

AERIAL ARTS

Aerial Yoga

Aerial Yoga allows the practice of yoga with the support and assistance of an aerial hammock. Removing the force of gravity allows the body a larger range of motion, while also supporting any injuries or contraindications that may make a floor-based yoga practice more difficult. Designed to develop muscular strength, endurance and flexibility, while opening your mind and body to new possibilities.

Aerial Bungee

A full body, resistance, high intensity practice using a bungee rope to remove gravity and work all muscle groups without impacting the joints. Promotes mobility, increases heart rate and oxygen capacity, while activating your metabolism and simultaneously building muscle.

Aerial Restorative

Designed to allow you to release, relax and restore. A therapeutic style of class that can assist with muscle tension and tightness. Using the support of the aerial hammock to assist the body to feel weightless and encourage deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
