All Levels

A class suitable for students who have some familiarity with yoga or have been practising for many lifetimes! A variety of yoga asanas and breathing practices which change from week to week. All ages and stages welcome.

Beginner & Beyond

A class suited for those who are absolute beginners or ready to move past the introductory elements of yoga and into a deeper understanding of the postures, breathing, and movement. Students will be encouraged to deepen their own body awareness, while poses and new variations of poses are introduced.

Beginner

Begin at the beginning with guidance and instruction in the safe and rewarding practice of yoga postures, breathing and deep relaxation. Focus is on breathing and moving with awareness. Benefits of poses and modifications for different abilities will be offered.

Dynamic Movement

Drawing from yoga, pilates and mindfulness practices, this is perfect for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of their body and their ability to move it. Explore functional movement, focus on connective tissue and joint health, strengthen weak areas, mobilize tight areas and consider reorganizing your structure for every day activities.

Intermediate

Students have an understanding of the basics of asanas, pranayama and mindfulness and wish to deepen their practice with variations and more challenging adaptations to the practice.
