There are many different forms of yoga and the range of styles can be confusing. Most styles practiced today derive from Hatha yoga, the forerunner of all postural yoga. Many styles emphasise the connection of breath and movement as an integral part of the practice; some include an element of meditation, and all include relaxation at the end of class.

Iyengar Yoga

Developed by B.K.S Iyengar, it places great focus on precise physical alignment and refined instructions. Students are guided step by step into the poses, sometimes with the use of props to cater for the needs of each individual student. Poses are held for longer periods of time, and classes concentrate on different areas of the body. Iyengar yoga is excellent for beginners, as it provides a deep understanding of the basic poses.

Restorative Yoga

A gentle, nurturing, slow-paced type of yoga anyone can do. Postures are usually deeply supported by blankets and bolsters and held for several minutes at a time, thus encouraging the body and nervous system to relax deeply. Our restorative yoga classes are usually in the evening and candle-lit: you will leave feeling nourished and relaxed, ready for a deep, deep sleep.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow paced style of yoga. Classes involve mostly passive poses practiced on the floor wrapped in blankets. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes and help target connective joint tissue and fascia flexibility, unlike more yang styles of yoga which generally target muscle flexibility. Yin is a relaxing but challenging practice, and is a fantastic compliment to other forms of exercise. Yin is suitable for all levels.

Breathwork is an active meditation, with deep rhythmic breathing to increase the oxygen flow through the body, resulting in a highly cathartic and slightly psychedelic state of mind — one that can unblock stuck energy and elevate us to deeper levels of clarity and awareness.

Fascia Hydration & Stress Release

These classes use slow concentrated movement and breathing techniques to lead you back into your deep core. You will be guided through a series of detailed exercises that are designed to turn off the dominant outer muscles of the body and to allow the inner core to do what it was designed for: To support us. This can be a slow, but deeply rewarding process: Once we connect to our inner core, we can breath more easily, move more fluidly and think more clearly.


As with many forms of physical exercise, yoga will increase your strength and energy levels, improve your blood circulation and muscle tone, help with weight loss and encourage overall heath.

It will also help you to develop better posture, balance and flexibility, leaving you feeling lighter and at ease in your body. In addition it improves your metabolism and digestion by massaging the internal organs.

Above all, (and the reason why so many people are turning to yoga) it is hugely beneficial for relieving stress and increasing focus and concentration.
