Classes

The School specialises in Iyengar-based Hatha yoga and is delivered in the traditional way as well as in hot classes.

We provide a variety of classes at differing levels, so whether you are new to yoga or more experienced, you'll find a class to suit you.

In addition to studying the asanas (postures), we also bring in yoga philosophy & history, anatomy and physiology, so that you are immersed into a broader, rounder experience of yoga and its benefits.

We like to teach you to tune into your nurturing energy instead of just pushing harder. This allows you to develop safely, steadily and quickly at your pace in order to reach your best potential - physically, mentally and spiritually.

Our next course starts the week beginning 11 Dec and is a special 4 week holiday course

There are 9 classes to choose from each week and you can attend as many of the classes marked on the timetable as 'Foundation Basics' as you like. The 'Relax and Restore' session on Friday is also included.
We suggest that by attending 2-3 times a week you will start to quickly feel the benefits of yoga.

If you can't make the week the course begins, then you can still make a start during the 2nd week of the course.

After the end of the course, what then?
You can repeat it, or speak to your teacher to see which of our class passes or membership plans will be best for you. See our Timetable and fees page for details.

How do I get on the course?
You need to enrol for this course - no casual attendances are allowed, so you can sign up online or at the school. Cost is $90 for the 4week program.

Can I drop in as a casual attender?
No, sorry. This is a measured program which will take participants through the cornerstone elements of yoga.

What if I want to go to other non-Foundation Basics classes?
That's not a problem, just buy a top-up class pass (choose from 5, 10, 30 or 50 class passes), attend the class you want and a class will be marked off on your pass. 5 & 10 class passes are valid for 1 year, 30 & 50 passes last 2 years.

I'm not sure about doing the course - what other options are there?
If you are new to yoga, we do strongly recommend that attending this course is the best option as well as being the best value for you.
Alternatively, we have class passes and several membership plans to choose from - See our Timetable and fees page for details.
You can then attend any of the Hatha and Hot yoga classes marked on the timetable, according to your level of experience in yoga, as frequently as you wish.
The 'Relax and Restore' class on Fridays is also open to anyone who has a class pass or membership plan.

Hot Yoga

Expect to be challenged, but in the best possible way!

Yoga in a heated room is just like feeling the sun's warm rays on a beautiful day - except there are no harmful UV rays. The FIR system (Far Infrared heaters) warms you from the inside, providing a therapeutic heat which will help you warm up more quickly, make your body feel looser and improve your circulation. Regular classes will build up your cardiovascular fitness, core strength and calm your mind.

It provides a great work-out for your inside body too, as your body releases all those toxins and consequently makes your skin glow and look fantastic!

The classes focus on developing strength, flexibility and fitness on all levels, physically & mentally, and is done in a heated room at 31°C.

Hot 1-2

A mixture of flowing and steady sequences in a dynamic style lasting 60, 75 or 90 minutes. Suitable for those who are new to Hot Yoga as well as experienced practitioners.

The 90 minute class on Wednesdays is a more dynamic, flowing practice for those who would like to work a little stronger.

Expect to get hot and sweaty!

Our teachers will suggest modified poses to suit you.

Hatha 2 (non-heated)

These classes are for those who would like to work a little stronger.

Focusing on correct alignment and technique, we combine strength work and deep stretches with breathing and meditation exercises to tone the muscles, improve flexibility and clear the mind.

Relax and Restore

Non-heated. A 60-minute non-strenuous, non-challenging practice. Steady, supported poses gently open and release deep tension layer by layer, while working with different breathing and meditation exercises to release and stabilise mental energy. Fantastic for releasing fatigue, nervous and emotional tension and just a great chance to have a break away from the busy world, to let yourself rest and let go at the end of the week.

Ideal for pregnant ladies too!

Private therapy classes

If you have a particular injury or health problem we advise you to take out a Therapy Package.

If you are new to yoga, we can show you specific exercises tailored to your individual needs. This will not only help your injury or problem heal, but give you a better understanding of how to work with it, so in a general class situation, you will have more of an understanding of what to do.
