O – Open Level
Most of our classes are open level. Our teachers are experienced in offering variations to suit your needs.
B – Beginners
We offer some beginners courses and classes for those new to a particular form or practice
E – Experienced
Classes marked as Experienced may require some prior knowledge or be more physically challenging. Please ask for advice if you are not sure whether the class is suitable for you.
We offer many styles of yoga – each bringing a different emphasis, such as focusing on strict alignment of the body, coordination of breath and movement, holding the postures, or the flow from one posture to another. All of the styles share a common lineage. No style is better than another; it’s simply a matter of personal preference. More important than any style is the student-teacher relationship. We encourage you to try a few classes and decide which class works best for you.
Studio 1 – The Sycamore Room
Our beautiful high ceilinged main studio has space for 22 yoga mats. It is painted a rich berry colour and has plenty of natural light. The room benefits from underfloor heating, dimmable ceiling spots and beautiful Turkish chandeliers. There are shutters and curtains should a practice require a more privacy and subdued lighting state.
The fully integrated sound system with ceiling mounted speakers allows music to fill the air and the triple glazed windows keep the noise of the outside world at bay so you can truly loose yourself in your practice.
Yoga mats, d-ring belts, blocks, bolsters, blankets and eye pillows all matching the colour scheme create a harmonious relaxing environment. The centrepiece of the room is a beautiful mandala by Mark Goldings.
The space is suitable for larger classes, for dance and events.
Studio 2 – The Silverbirch Room
Our second studio has feature arched windows and a view of a silverbirch tree; hence the name. It accommodates 8 yoga mats and is painted a calm, subtle green colour offering a more intimate space. The room benefits from under floor heating and dimmable lights and is fully kitted out with grey mats, bolsters, blocks, belts and eye pillows.
The room also has a butler sink and we provide trestle tables and benches for art or writing activities. This room is also used for multi bed clinics and chair massage.
