It involves smoothly transitioning between poses in a continuous flow, creating a dynamic and meditative practice. Our Vinyasa classes often start with a series of sun salutations to warm up the body and then progress into a creative sequence of poses, linked together by the breath. It's a versatile and rhythmic style, suitable for all practitioners. Depending on the overall energy levels of the class, the intensity may vary.

This style is suitable for those who are looking for a vigorous and athletic approach to yoga, combining strength training with the meditative aspects of traditional yoga practice.

Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga is a style of yoga performed in a heated room, our room will typically range from 80 - 90 degrees. The increased temperature is believed to enhance flexibility, promote detoxification through sweating, and intensify the cardiovascular aspect of the practice. The heat in our Hot Yoga classes can create a challenging yet invigorating experience, helping to loosen muscles and increase circulation. However, it's important for our practitioners to stay well-hydrated and be mindful of their body's limits in the elevated temperature. Hot yoga is suitable for those who enjoy a more intense and sweat-inducing practice.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow and meditative style of yoga that targets the connective tissues, such as ligaments, tendons, and fascia, with the aim of increasing circulation and flexibility. In our Yin Yoga class, poses are held for longer durations, typically ranging from 3 to 5 minutes or even more. The longer holds and deep stretches aim to release tension in specific areas and promote a sense of openness. Yin yoga is a great complement to more active styles of yoga and can be beneficial for improving flexibility, joint mobility, and mindfulness. It's a gentle and introspective practice, making it suitable for various levels of practitioners.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a gentle and therapeutic style of yoga that focuses on relaxation and rejuvenation. In our restorative yoga class, the emphasis is on supported and comfortable poses held for extended periods, allowing the body to release tension and stress.The use of props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks provide maximum support and comfort. The poses are often passive and floor-based, promoting a deep sense of relaxation. Restorative Yoga is less about stretching or strengthening and more about creating a restful and calming experience for the body and mind. This class is suitable for everyone. It's a wonderful practice for slowing down, tuning into the breath, and finding a sense of tranquility in the midst of our busy lives.

Aerial Yoga

Aerial Yoga is a unique style of yoga that incorporates the use of a fabric hammock or swing suspended from the ceiling to support and enhance traditional yoga poses. In Our Aerial Yoga class, our certified instructors guide participants to use the hammock to deepen stretches, achieve inversions, and perform various poses that may be challenging on the ground. The hammock provides both support and resistance, allowing for increased flexibility, strength building, and a sense of weightlessness during certain movements. Aerial Yoga can be both playful and therapeutic, offering a different perspective on traditional yoga practices. Please note that, for the safety of all participants, there is a weight limit of 250 pounds. As part of our commitment to safety, everyone engaging in Aerial Yoga will be asked to step on the scale. 


Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga is a form of yoga that is practiced while sitting in a chair or using a chair for support. It's designed to make yoga more accessible to individuals with limited mobility, balance issues, or those who may find it challenging to practice traditional yoga on the mat.
