Spiritual Hatha with Saskia
Inspired by the belief that Hatha yoga represents the sun (ha) and moon (tha), this class aims to balance these two energies, creating an equilibrium between the body and mind. The first part of the class focuses more on the physical aspect of yoga (the asana); you’ll be guided through a series of postures, concentrating on alignment, fluidity and finding space within the body. This is followed by exploring the more spiritual and philosophical side of yoga, through practices such as pranayama (breathing techniques), 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.
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
This pilates class is a continuation from our beginners class, although everyone is more than welcome. This class is a more challenging, for students already with some experience in Pilates.

Morning Vinyasa with Monica
Morning Vinyasa with Monica is a dynamic exploration of Yoga practice. We map our physical reality through Asana and breath-centred fusion of form and flow designed to refine our relationship with our sensory experience.
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, both on and off the mat. Suited to both new and more experienced practitioners, but not to absolute beginners.

Involving various traditional and modern Yogic practices, 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.

AntiGravity with Jess & Louise
AntiGravity was founded by Christopher Harrison, a Cirque du Soleil performer. He found that yoga poses were much easier when dangling in mid air! AntiGravity involves suspending in a hammock a few feet from the ground. You will work through a number of sequences learning how to use your hammock to help make your movements more precise and deepen your practice. It calms you down, strengthens your core and tones your legs. It may help to loosen stiffness by lengthening your whole body.
