About Our Yoga Asana Programmes
Hatha Yoga Asana Classes
Hatha Yoga Asana classes increase flexibility, strengthen and tone muscles, balance hormones, cleanse and flush all the internal systems of the body, calm the mind and reduce stress. Our classes are non competitive and focus on safely progressing from easy to more challenging poses. Classes are suitable for all levels. All classes include kirtan, meditation and relaxation.

Gentle stretching and breathing for every body. In this class you’ll gently loosen stiff joints and ease out aching muscles while soothing the nervous system and calming the mind. A wonderful class for pregnancy*, for those recovering from injury* or for those looking for a gentler, more relaxing class.
Hatha Yoga Asana Classes: Energy
Energy Asana classes combine strength, flexibility, focus and breathing. These classes will increase your aerobic fitness, invigorate your body and deepen your asanas. This challenging class is suitable for students familiar with alignment and muscle control.
Stretch & Relax Classes
Easy stretching for every body combined with deep relaxation, kirtan and meditation. This class is soothing and restorative, a great class for pregnancy*, those recovering from injury*, and seniors*. Free the body then calm the mind.
Yin/Yang Yoga Classes
The yin/yang class combines a more active yoga (yang) sequence with deep stretch poses (yin). Standing poses and movement with breath will help to develop strength, coordination and agility, while longer holds in floor poses will help to relax the muscles and work deeply into the body, improving joint and organ health and stimulating energy channels to harmonise the energies of the body, mind and emotions. The class will finish with a 15 minute yoga nidra, a freeing practice of deep relaxation with awareness.
