Intensity Levels

Class intensity levels are indicative of the pace of the class rather than the level of the class as all levels of ability/experience are welcome (except Yoga Basics which is specifically for beginners). Options to add on/deepen and pull back/modify postures will be given in all classes:

Low Intensity: The pace of the class is gentle. Expect your heartbeat to speed up a little and your body to heat up but not to the point of sweating. Rest & modify as needed.

Medium Intensity: The pace of the class is moderate, at times with longer holds in challenging poses/sequences, mixed up with a gentle flow. Rest & modify as needed.

High Intensity: The pace is fast and flowing. A cardiovascular practice, at times with longer holds in challenging poses/sequences – be prepared to sweat! Rest & modify as needed.

YOGA FLOW
(Medium Intensity)

Yoga Flow is a vinyasa-style class suitable for beginner level to intermediate level practitioners who want to experience a fun, flowing sequence that will clear the mind and strengthen the body. Taught at a medium intensity, our Yoga Flow classes incorporate yoga poses that are accessible for anyone who steps on the mat! – We are always offering options to either scale back/modify in order to ease off in poses or to deepen and intensify poses. Link mind to movement through your breath and get ready to experience an invigorating class that will leave you feeling calmer, stronger and more flexible!

Yoga Flow is taught to empower you on and off the mat. Everything you get in this Baptiste inspired class is accessible for the modern-day lifestyle. Baptiste Yoga ‘de-mystifies’ the yoga practice and makes it more inviting for people in all walks of life in an inspiring but fun and light setting.

EXTENDRESTORE

RELAX & RESTORE
(Low Intensity)

This class is primarily designed to restore the body back to optimal energy levels with long holds supported by blankets, bolsters and other props, allowing muscles to release and relax as you calm the body and mind with breathing techniques, guided meditation, readings and relaxation with music or in complete silence. The use of props allows each pose to become effortlessly passive instead of active. Restorative yoga is a perfect class for relieving mental and physical stress and fatigue.

This class is offered as a Term Based weekly community class on Wednesdays 7-8pm during our regular term dates (also available to book as a Private / Corporate yoga class). Please CONTACT US prior to the start of each term to REGISTER YOUR INTEREST.

SUNDAY YOGABASICS BEGINNER  COURSE
(Low to Medium Intensity)

Please Note: This is a structured 8-week course where each session builds upon the previous one. At the start of each session we will do a brief recap of the previous session. Missed classes can’t be made up for in terms of content but if cancelled in time, students may use their credit to book in for any other class on schedule during the current term.

Our YogaBasics Beginner Series Course is aimed at beginners seeking to establish a safe, solid foundation for their yoga practice (or more experienced students seeking to revisit foundations). Over an 8-week period, in a methodical manner you will be taught the most common physical postures and be introduced to other aspects of yoga including breath techniques, simple meditation practices and a basic overview of yoga history and philosophy. The course is based on Ashtanga yoga tradition with influences from Iyengar yoga.  Postures are divided into Levels 1 & 2 and instruction will focus on: alignment, safely transitioning in and out of each pose, contraindications and benefits, and introduction to gentler and stronger options for each pose.

Using a variety of props (including bolsters, blocks, straps and walls) to help gradually develop flexibility, increase strength and stamina, and most of all, your confidence and enthusiasm, the course will offer a workshop-style approach and include one or two flow-style classes covering the postures we have learned.

This course is currently unavailable.
