We think you might like our relaxing and therapeutic classes. Be sure to always talk to the teacher about any injuries or health issues first so they can help you properly. Depending on your injury or illness, you might like to try:
Chair yoga which is taught using a chair and makes yoga accessible to anyone who wishes to move and breathe in a gentle way. The body will be honoured no matter what its physical challenges or limitations. The class will include simple movements, adapted yoga postures, breath awareness, meditation and relaxation.
Feldenkrais Expand your range of motion as you enhance your awareness, improve your function and express yourself more fully on a physical level. Lessons consist of precisely structured movements that gradually evolve into movements of greater range and complexity.
Inner Axis Developed by breathing expert Max Strom, Inner Axis deals directly with stress, anxiety and sleeplessness. It produces a level of fitness that makes you feel better, sleep better, and therefore function at a higher level, in your relationships, life and work. Classes will include breath-based yoga movement and mindfulness and are accessible to all fitness levels.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that combines movement, mental concentration and breathing to increase and balance your vital energy, or ‘Qi’. Sometimes referred to as the Chinese equivalent to yoga, qigong is more than a physical practice, with many healing benefits for the body, mind and spirit.
Restorative yoga takes place on the floor and you’ll use props such as bolsters, blankets, foam bricks and blocks so your body can rest completely into a series of restorative postures. Living in the city can throw the nervous system off balance, and a restorative yoga class will help slow the heart rate down and allow the body and mind to rest fully.
Scaravelli is inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, an Italian yoga teacher who pioneered the idea of effortless yoga. A gentle yet mentally-demanding class that focuses on developing core strength, releasing tension and creating length in the spine.
Yin yoga is a stilling practice that cultivates a deep sense of awareness through the release of mind and body stresses. An antidote to urban life, Yin focuses on releasing the connective tissue of the body (tendons, ligaments and fascia.) Poses are held for long periods, allowing the student to relax as they express patience and quiet.
Yoga Gently is for students of any age and experience who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also recommended for those plagued with any kind of injury. Ideal for beginners.
Yoga Level 1 is a general yoga class ideal for complete beginners, those in the initial stages of yoga practice or those seeking a gentler asana practice.
There are a wide range of styles within the yoga tradition and the class will reflect the teacher and their yoga background.
Yoga Nidra is a floor-based practice and you’ll be covered with blankets and have props to support your body in its most comfortable state. Our teachers will guide you into a state of “conscious sleep”, leading to a feeling of complete inner and outer relaxation and calm.
