Fundamentals of Vinyasa Flow
The Fundamentals of Vinyasa Flow. This class teaches you the foundation of a Flow class in a small group environment. It is also taught without the room being heated, which gives you the ability to focus more on our shapes. If you don’t know your Chataranga from your Adho Mukha Svanasana this is the class for you!!
The teacher will go through the sequence slowly, breaking the postures down, giving you lots of instruction and assistance with your alignment. You will also be taught the correct way to breathe for Vinyasa Flow so you will feel much more capable and confident when you transition to the hot room.

There’s a reason bootcamp-style training is so popular: It gets results—and fast!
Bootcamp is time-based interval circuit training with minimal equipment. Each circuit mixes cardio moves with strength training exercises. What makes boot camp workouts so unique is that they emphasise total-body functional training which goes hand in hand in yoga to improve your strength, power, balance and lung capacity. Plus you torch the maximum amount of calories while you tone every inch.
IHP is a training system that combines Pilates principles with HIIT (high intensity interval training). It is an intense full body workout designed to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and improve overall health.
It is simple and it works – it creates quick visible results. It creates long lean muscle mass, burns fat, and increase fitness levels. It creates a strong core, improves circulation and increases flexibility. It is on a yoga mat so has zero impact, therefore protecting your joints and muscles.
It combines cardio and muscle toning in a hot room. The HIIT keeps your heart rate up, helping to burn fat. The pilates principles sculpt your body. The heat loosens the muscles and at the humidity makes you sweat – elevating your heart rate, boosting metabolism and promoting fat burn.
Drawing from Pilates, Yoga and fitness/strength training, Hot Core combines a deep abdominal and strength training workout with sequences of dynamic movement to also boost heart rate and cardio fitness. Some infra red heat is added to the room to get things really sweaty!
You will learn how to turn on and train the core muscles in proper, safe & effective ways.
Each class has sets of different exercises which participants will first learn the HOW and then do them in an interval sequence.
In addition to the core interval sets there will be cardio movement to further challenge the core as well as building cardio stamina & strength.

Yin Yoga Wheel
They say “healthy spine, healthy life” for good reasons: the spine supports our entire body structure and allows for a good flow of the force of gravity and vital energy.
The wheel therapy class is designed to increase the flexibility of the spine and openness of the shoulders, chest and hips which are all major energy centres in the body. This is done through a series of yoga inspired movements with the aid of the wheel.
This class will not only improve your yoga practice and flexibility but most importantly will allow for great “openness and release”, making you feel both invigorated and lighter afterwards.
Ballet Tone fuses ballet with pilates in a class which is high intensity but low impact. The exercises are done with varying tempos to improve coordination and to keep the muscles active by constantly changing the way they move.
The class really works on the thighs, bum and core, with lots of small repetitive movements. Using the principle of isometric contraction to build strength and lean muscle and targeting the accessory muscles to increase your endurance so when you go back to your yoga practice you’ll be able to hold postures for much longer.
Its easy on the joints and there are many modifications for injuries.
