Plus Icon Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body.

From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow.

Inhalation is usually connected to upward, open movements, while exhalation is often tied to downward movements or twists.
Plus Icon Yoga

In this class, postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated.

You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement.

Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals, as we make a full circuit of the body’s range of motion with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers.

Plus Icon Yoga Ashtanga
Ashtanga is a dynamic and effective form of postural yoga that exploded in popularity in the 1990s, first through the teachings of Pattabhi Jois, a disciple of the legendary Krishnamacharya, who is undoubtedly the grandfather of virtually all forms of modern postural yoga. 

At the heart of the methodology is an integration of smooth breath, concentrated yet broad gaze, and steady posture. 

These elements are seamlessly woven into rituals of movement. 

When practised regularly and skilfully, it is possible to experience profound expansion of the body-mind and learn to stay present and centred throughout the myriad physical sensations and mental projections that finally dissolve back into ever-present stillness. 

As conceptual boundaries fade, one’s sense of self is radically transformed.

Plus Icon Zumba
Zumba combines latin and international music with dance. It's extremely fun and fast!
