as well as how they could suit you! You can find the booking pages for our classes here.

We also have pages for our workshops and private classes.

Slow Flow with Saskia

This class is a cross between Vinyasa and Hatha yoga. You will be guided through a series of simple postures that seamlessly and slowly flow from one to another, allowing you time to pause, reflect and create space within each one. The class will finish with a Yoga Nidra (‘yogic sleep'): a form of guided meditation that is practised lying down. The aim of this is to lead you into a conscious state between wakefulness and sleep, filling you with deep relaxation.

Spiritual Hatha with Saskia

Inspired by the belief that Hatha yoga represents the sun and moon, aiming to balance these two energies, creating an equilibrium between body and mind. First you will focus on the physical aspect of yoga (the asana), concentrating on alignment, fluidity and finding space within the body. Followed by exploring the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga, through practices such as pranayama, observation, mantra and meditation.

Postnatal Yoga with Liz

A class for you that you can bring your baby to. This gentle yoga class allows you to start to reconnect with your body, stretch, easy out aching shoulders and find your inner strength. However you birthed your baby, it will take time for you to feel like ‘you’ again and this class offers you that opportunity in a baby friendly environment along with other ladies who, like you, may not have had a full night’s sleep! so plenty of restorative postures too.

Detox & Tone with Liz

During this class Liz will fine tune your posture work and help you to get the most out of your practice, because each body is different. Deeper breathing will strengthen the lungs and help you to reach further into postures and relax the mind, which will help you detox both mentally and physically. You will get your body moving by flowing several postures together, helping the lymphatic system flush out the bodies toxins and work the core.

Beginners Pilates with Sharon

These classes are designed for those who have yet to try Pilates and need to learn the fundamentals on which to build their practice. Classes will focus on the basic movements of the Pilates Method. Modifications will be given for those with physical limitations. This class is a great way to start and to watch the transformation in how you look, and more importantly, how you feel.

Intermediate Pilates with Sharon

You will use a variety of pilates props to increase the intensity of your sessions.

Morning Vinyasa with Monica

This is a dynamic exploration of Yoga practice, mapping your physical reality through Asana and breath-centred fusion of form and flow. Sequences blend flow with steady poses, integrating clear alignment and patterns of movement with an underlying reflection on embodiment for a more empowered sense of balance and stability. Suited to both new and more experienced practitioners, but not to absolute beginners.

A typical session will include breath awareness, functional movement activities, a series of yoga poses and space for reflection and relaxation.

Power Yoga with Saskia

A strong, energetic form of Vinyasa. The intention of this class is to bring the mind into the body, to create a space in which we can break the boundaries of our regular practice and to challenge expectations we have of ourselves and our abilities. Power yoga has been shown to improve strength, flexibility, stamina and blood circulation as well as providing a great form of stress relief.

Restorative Yoga with Chloe

Restorative yoga is a deeply nourishing, therapeutic and luxurious practice which focuses on rest, relaxation and recuperation. When in a pose, the body is ‘held’ by props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks to allow the muscles to relax and let go and the mind to slow down. Poses are typically held for 2-5 minutes with slow, mindful transitions in between. A perfect class to help you regroup after a busy day.
