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.

 
 

BARRE VINYASA

YOGA LEVEL 1 - SWEAT LEVEL 1/2

ALIGNMENT - STRENGTH - FLOW

This class will challenge you physically and energise you mentally through a combination of vinyasa yoga and low-impact barre. Barre is a full body strength workout that focuses on postural alignment and lengthens your muscle to give you that much-desired dancers aesthetic. Muscles which you may not even know you have are activated using small isometric movements which will make you burn, shake and see results. This class brings a new level of awareness to the body that you wouldn't get in a regular strength workout.

Great for anyone who wants to increase their strength, flow and challenge their body.
Not good for complete beginners, people with injury or those who are less mobile.

CHILD wellness

AGES 2 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.

LUNAR SERIES

YOGA LEVEL 2 - SWEAT LEVEL 0/1

EXPLORE - BALANCE - INVERT

Developed by our very own @ClaireLormorYoga, the Lunar Series - otherwise known at ‘the moon’ series - is a set sequence of postures combining standing poses, arm balances and inversions. Playing and getting creative with the capabilities of our physical body, the Lunar Series is designed to explore new areas, build strength, and turn you upside down. It is a set sequence of poses that will be delivered in the same order every week.

Variations are given in this class, which is why it is good for both level 1, 2 and 3 yogis.

Perfect for inversion junkies and those wanting to build physical strength. Also great for anyone who wish to take their practice up a level or two.
Not good for beginners, people with injury or those who are less mobile.

POWER YOGA

YOGA LEVEL 1/2 - SWEAT LEVEL 1/2

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 - 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 pretty much 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 1, 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 1/2

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 - SWEAT LEVEL 1/2

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 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.
