The word Hatha is the Sanskrit word for ‘willful’, and represents a system of physical techniques. Broken down, the Sanskrit word Ha translates to ‘sun’ and Tha to ‘moon’, equating to Hatha being the yoga practice of balance.
At the heart of Hatha Yoga are the physical asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breath techniques) and meditation, together these practices strengthen and bring peace to the body and mind.
Hatha Yoga Flow incorporates the fundamental elements of a Hatha practice, linking postures together in a flowing style. This class is ideal for those who enjoy the natural flowing movements but also like to spend time in their postures to take them in and feel deeply. Hatha Flow is a more dynamic approach to Hatha Yoga but freedom to explore is retained.
Vinyasa classes offer more dynamic style of practice, with a focus uniting movement and breath to create a moving, meditative experience.
Regular vinyasa practice increases muscle strength, endurance and flexibility, and provides a varied practice to focus the mind. Relaxation is offered at the end of every practice to balance and restore the mind and body.
This fun style of class is great for students who like to like to challenge themselves and explore their physical and mental boundaries.

Suitable for absolute beginners and those returning to the practice
Yin yoga is a very passive approach to yoga where you perform the majority of the poses seated on the floor or laying down. The poses are held for longer periods of time, sometimes 3 - 5 minutes and in some cases up to 20 minutes.
Yin yoga offers deeper access to the body targeting our connective tissues, fascia and ligaments with the aim of lubricating and protecting our joints. These are areas of the body often not reached with a typical yang style of yoga practice or fitness regime.
Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) is a guided meditation designed to completely release tension from the physical body and balance the mind by instilling calm and present awareness.
Step away from your busy life and immerse yourself in one of our incredible meditation classes. Meditation is the practice of slowing down your 'thinking mind' in order to find greater peace, calm and clarity. Only when we learn how to quiet the mind can we connect with the essence of who we truly are.
All of our meditations are guided, offering a safe and controlled space for you to explore your conscious mind, release unwanted stresses and gain insight in to who you are.
