VITAL ENERGY FLOW is our flagship yoga flow class. Here you will practice classical yoga postures in the form of backbends, hip openers, twists, forward folds and leg balances. Striking an equilibrium between flowing movement and alignment, VEF is an energising class which will bring calm and balance. VEF is a headstand free class. If you’re into some upside down therapy, check out UPSIDE DOWN which starts in June. VEF 45 is the streamlined class for the time -conscious. (55 & 45 min class options)
Women's Only Weight - Training Class. STRONG 45 is not your average pump class. Based on the ethos of Quality of Exercise, Strong 45 is focused, self-observational weight training using kettle bells, resistance bands and dumbbells. Working on no more than 3-4 drills per session, the sets are interspersed with dynamic stretching to facilitate muscle relaxation enhancing strength gains and deeper, more successful contractions during TUT (time under tension). Strong 45 elevates kinesthetic awareness for all phases of movement (eccentric and concentric), alignment and emphasises breath patterns to support a more conscious approach towards your strength training progress. (45 mins)
SLOW STRETCH 55 focuses on breath-work, fewer postures and longer holds to elevate mind-body connection. This is a prop-friendly, Chatturanga (yoga push up) and sweat-free yoga class designed to restore physically and mentally. The class offers immediate relief for tense shoulders, tight hip flexors and postural back pain. The class is perfect for recovery and for anyone looking for a slow, mindful stretch. SLOW STRETCH is suitable for those with limited yoga experience and for those who have done ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS classes and looking to transition into other yoga formats. (55 min class)
Feel the burn! Tone, sculpt and strengthen your abs, butt and thighs. This ABTs focused class is a fun and sweaty twist on leg day training with the bonus core workout. Using resistance bands and light weights, ABTs 45 is a bit of old school mixed in with modern day strength training techniques to deliver an incredibly exhilarating and dynamic workout. (45 min class)
Stretching a lot but still feeling stiff? The stiffness that you are feeling might be be caused by two things - limited articular range in your joints compounded by postural deficiencies resulting in weak and tight muscles. M2A (mobility 2 agility) targets joint ROM (range of motion) and addresses common postural misalignments by activating key stabilising muscles. We do this through drills sympathetic to joint function where connective tissue surrounding targeted joints simultaneously benefit from nutrition as a result of specific movement patterns. M2A puts the lubrication back into your joints so that you can keep playing the sports you love and execute the daily activities of living with ease. No yoga experience required and suited to those more comfortable with a functional style of stretching. 2 levels offered - check schedule for Level 1 Mobility & Level 2 Agility (55min class)
GENTLE FLEX + FLOW is the class that will improve your flexibility for backbends, hip-openers and binding poses. Focusing less on chatturangas (yoga planking), the class begins with a dynamic but gentle warm up designed to prepare you for back extension work, hip and shoulder openers. Props are used to facilitate and progress you through the poses. The class is suited to intermediate practitioners with some experience in yoga who want to advance their flexibility for more challenging poses, adults with a background in dance, PT's or anyone in the movement arts and business who want and need to continue to maintain their flexibility. Experience significant improvements in shoulder, chest and hip flexibility with consistent practice.
Poor posture caused by technology overuse, weak muscles, stress or historical injuries are all factors that can be alleviated through core stabilisation exercises and proper stretching. Improve your posture by strengthening your core and become more aware of how to support your body when executing both functional and recreational activities. Enjoy a unique workout each time that will challenge your core and focus. Accessible for all levels of skill and practice.
