CLASSES

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

This is a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that connects the movement of the body with the breath in a set sequence of yoga postures. Regular practice builds strength, stability and flexibility. Postures are modified when needed whilst remaining true to the intention of the practice to heal the body, quiet the mind and open the heart.

Ashtanga Led Classes

In a led class all poses are talked through and appropriate physical adjustments can be given when required. Both beginners and experienced practitioners are welcome.

Ashtanga Mysore (assisted self practice) Classes
Mysore sessions allow students to go at their own pace within the class setting. Practitioners are helped to learn and remember the set sequences with simple reminders. This empowers their self practice and heightens the experience of a moving meditation. Individual instruction is given quietly, both verbally and with sensitive physical adjustments.


Revitalising Yoga
Flowing sequences of yoga postures to relax and energise the body and breath. A bridge between dynamic and gentle yoga, with a balance of fluid movement and deep stillness. 

Gentle Yoga
Gentle yoga is grounded and relaxing, to build a depth of strength while encouraging the body and breath to release tension and restore energy. Sound and sensitive adjustments are used to encourage relaxation in a nurturing environment. 

Zen Meditation
Monday Zen meditation includes seated meditation and is held in silence in the spirit of "just sitting" as taught in Soto Zen. Instruction can be given if needed.

On Wednesday there is a guided class, inspired by Seon Zen practices, where students are guided towards insight. Suitable for beginners, and those who prefer guided meditation.
