What level is right for me? 

Level 1 class will be introductory. Instructors should explain thoroughly how to get in and out of each pose and should explain the proper alignment for each pose. Introductory classes will also move more slowly than a higher level class and should offer you lots of modifications in each pose to fit your fitness level. All are welcome.

​

Level 2 class will generally be more aerobic, especially if it is a flow (vinyasa) class. If you find yourself in a class that feels too challenging or over your head, you are always welcome to rest or modify the poses to fit your fitness level (your teacher should remind you of this). A level 2 class will also probably begin to incorporate more advanced poses such as inversions (headstand, handstand, forearm stand) and backbends. Once again, you can always modify or choose not to do a pose if you feel uncomfortable.

​

Level 3 class will be advanced. There will probably be very little instruction on proper alignment as the teacher will likely assume that students know and understand the correct position for each pose. If it is a vinyasa or flow class, it will likely move very quickly. While the aerobic component of a higher level class is probably equivalent to a few-mile jog, there is also a lot of strength work in these classes. To make sure you stay safe and healthy, it’s important to make sure you have the strength and flexibility to do a pose properly. Beware that a level 3 flow or vinyasa class can get very sweaty!

Ashtanga Yoga

A more vigorous style of yoga. It offers a series of poses, each held for only five breaths and punctuated by a half sun salutation to keep up the pace.

 

The sequence has a focus on breath, and connects this to movement. By practicing Ashtanga yoga regularly, you'll begin to connect with your mind and body, reaching a state of moving meditation. This practice will help you to build strength quickly and calm the mind.

Vinyasa Yoga

An energising, fast flowing power yoga class with lots of fun and challenging poses thrown in. Think chaturangas, arm balances, inversions and more!

 

You'll begin each session with Surya Namaskar warm ups (Sun Salutations), followed by a vinyasa flow sequence (movement with the breath) to build heat and cultivate energy in the body.

 

This practice is great for anyone with a little yoga experience to those who are more advanced. In this class we will focus on building strength and lengthening the muscles helping you tone up and lose weight. So expect to break a sweat!

Meditation

Creating space in your mind isn't easy.  This guided meditation class is designed to help bring stillness to the mind and work towards training the mind to become fitter.  You will focus on developing calmness, positive emotion and inner harmony.  

 

In Buddhist philosophy, the ultimate benefit of meditation is liberation of the mind from attachment to things it cannot control, such as external circumstances or strong internal emotions.  

 

Newcomers and regular practitioners are welcome.
