Doing yoga is like watching Netflix (stay with me here). Not everyone likes Netflix because some people don’t even like watching TV. Those who like watching TV don’t all like Game of Thrones. They may prefer Gossip Girl instead. What I’m trying to say is that EVERY style of yoga is so different, you can’t possibly simply call them all….. yoga.

Check out the class descriptions of what we offer at WELLNESS SPACE. If you can, try them all.

ASHTANGA

YOGA LEVEL 1/2 - SWEAT LEVEL 1/2

REPETITIVE - STRUCTURED - CONSISTENT

The best way to see improvements is through repetition. There are six different Ashtanga series’: Primary series being the 'easiest' and 6th series being the most advance. The goal is perfect each series before moving onto the next. Our classes will be following the Primary series, but that doesn't mean to say it'll be an easy ride. Your teacher will follow a set sequence of postures that will be delivered in the exact order every single class. The sequence will include mainly standing and seated poses with a small number of inversions. Variations will be given, so this class is suitable for all levels. Make sure to choose the variation that is suitable for you. There is also a huge emphasis on linking your breath to your movement.

Great for anyone who wants to track their development and progress.
Not good for complete beginners, people with injuries or those who are less mobile.

breath, movement, meditation

YOGA LEVEL 1/2 - SWEAT LEVEL 1/2

we breathe - we move - we meditate

Dynamic form of yoga, incorporating movement with breathing techniques. As well as being a physical workout (often quite aerobic), it’s also a meditative practice bringing awareness inward to the self.

Great for anyone who wants to work on their mind and body. Variations are always given so it’s good for any ability.
Not good for people with injuries or those who are less mobile.

CHILD wellness

AGES 1 TO 12 YEARS

A class that focuses on movement, mindfulness, creating calm and being creative.

GENTLE YOGA

YOGA LEVEL 0 - SWEAT LEVEL 0/1

STEADY - FUNDAMENTALS - STARTING POINT

You will learn the fundamentals of yoga practice (breath, alignment and even some philosophy). The pace of a gentle yoga class is relatively slow as lots of time is given to ensure your positioning and alignment is correct. The teacher may give more advanced options for people who have been practising a little bit longer, but will always provide the easier alternative. You may not work up a sweat in this class but you will definitely strengthen your mind and stretch your body. 

Great for anyone new to yoga or people who are less mobile, pregnant and/or injured.
Not good for anyone wanting more of a physical and challenging practice.

POWER YOGA

YOGA LEVEL 1 - SWEAT LEVEL 2/3

sweaty - stong - energetic

Similar to a vinyasa flow class, power yoga classes are fun and lively. You’ll get a little bit of everything in this class: standing and seated poses, arm and leg balances, backbends and even inversions. But you’ll also get some strength and high intensity work too. The teacher will often play upbeat music to synchronise with the faster pace of the class. You do not have to be an experienced yogi or even know many poses, as long as you’re prepared to work hard.

Great for anyone who wants to sweat, build strength and have a work out.
Not good for complete beginners, people with injury or those who are less mobile.

pregnancy yoga

YOGA LEVEL 0/1 - SWEAT LEVEL 0/1

PREPARE - STRETCH - RELAX

Specialised class to teach yoga for pregnancy and birth preparation. Pregnancy yoga is said to improve sleep; reduce stress and anxiety; increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth; and decrease lower back pain, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath.

ROCKET SERIES

YOGA LEVEL 2/3 - SWEAT LEVEL 1/2

repetitive - structured - sweaty

The best way to see improvements is through repetition. Like the primary ashtanga series, the rocket series is a set sequence of poses that will be delivered in the exact same order no matter where you are in the world. It is a combination of all ashtanga series’ (even the most difficult one), and it is called the rocket series because it is said to ‘get you there faster’. And by ‘there’ they mean, where ever you want to go. It’s a combination of standing poses, arm balances, backbends and inversions. Variations are given in this class, which is why it is good for both level 2 and 3 yogis.

Great for anyone who wants to track their development and progress. Also great for anyone who wants to take their practice up a level or two, or for people who want to build strength, sweat and have a workout.
Not good for beginners, people with injury or those who are less mobile.

(HOT) VINYASA FLOW

YOGA LEVEL 1/2 - SWEAT LEVEL 2/3

dynamic - fun - physical

Vinyasa classes are fun and varied, with an emphasise on linking your breath to your movement. Poses are only held for approximately 5 breaths, which creates a very dynamic flow as you are constantly flowing through poses. You’ll get a little bit of everything in this class: standing and seated poses, arm and leg balances, backbends and even inversions. And all of our vinyasa flow classes are mixed level, which means the teacher will give variations for a lot of the poses so you can choose which one is right for you. An excellent way to progress. For all of our hot classes, we try and get the room to about 28 degrees.

Great for anyone who wants to take their practice up a level.
Not good for complete beginners, people with injuries, those who are less mobile, have low or high blood pressure or cardiovascular irregularities, or if you are pregnant.

(HOT) YIN yang

YOGA LEVEL 1/2 - SWEAT LEVEL 2/3

COMBINATION - flowing - still

Yin yang yoga is a class that combines two styles of yoga. For the first half of the class you will build up your heart rate, stretch the body and move around the mat with a vinyasa flow practice. For the final half we will do yin. Yin yoga is a quiet meditative yoga practice where floor-based poses (possibly slightly uncomfortable) are held still for 3-5 minutes. It targets connective tissue rather than muscle; so instead of actively engaging your muscles, you relax into the stretch and let gravity do its work. It's a very calming practice that is great to sooth the mind and nervous system. Props (bolsters, blankets, blocks and even the wall) can also be used to assist you in you in finding a position where you can relax, cease muscle contraction and find stillness. For all of our hot classes, we try and get the room to about 28 degrees.

Great for anyone who can’t decide what their body needs at the minute.
Not good for complete beginners, people with injuries, those who are less mobile, have low or high blood pressure or cardiovascular irregularities, or if you are pregnant.
