Mandala yoga, is a practice that works towards a firm intention and is established on the four elements that bring connection between you and each of the Elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air.
Each of these elements have their corresponding Chakra and group of muscles. All four corners of the mat will be used during the class as you move your body in all directions, mimicking the non linear essence of nature.

Just like Vinyasa Flow, this yoga style takes inspiration from Ashtanga Yoga, but is not choreographed in set sequences.
Power Yoga classes vary as although classes follow a flow, poses are generally held for longer and focus more on building strength rather than flexibility which is more aligned with the moving fluidity of a Vinyasa Flow.
This is a challenging class, sure to focus the mind and build heat throughout the body.
We highly recommend the use of a yoga mat for your practice; we also recommend having a good selection of cushions and blankets to support your practice and add comfort throughout the class and especially during relaxation at the end.
It is good idea to wear comfortable layers that you can add or take off as required.

Gravity Style Yoga is a deeply nourishing approach based around the use of passive yoga postures for deep stretching and release of the joints, tendons, fascia and deep tissues of the body.
Whether you want to work on your flexibility, or simply unwind with a relaxing class this approach is a wonderful way to release physical and mental stress and welcome ease.
All of the poses are passive which means they are based on using your own body weight and natural gravitational down force to deepen the pose. You are in control.
We know that deeper release is more easily accessible when our bodies and our minds are relaxed, which is why there is a strong focus on calming breath techniques and cultivating a sense of serenity throughout.
Take your time, unwind and enjoy experiencing your body opening up for you.
This class is suitable for all experiences as poses can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
