What does the class involve?

Each class begins with one of our qualified, experienced and passionate teachers welcoming you in our doors. Either choose a mat or replace one with yours. Our hygienically clean props are set up at the start of class. Once you are settled in a spot, you’re guided into becoming present & grounded to assist you with leaving your day at the door. Your teacher will direct a warm up and ease you into a class progression that may follow a theme. Breath awareness will be encouraged throughout your practice. Options and modifications for postures will be demonstrated to suit your individual needs. Our teachers are unique and they all offer a variety of different styles of yoga, so please check out the teacher profiles for further information.

Apart from ‘courses’, the class content is repeated for 2 weeks giving you the opportunity to practise your yoga with more confidence.

To gain all the benefits yoga has to offer, it is recommended you maintain consistent & dedicated practice through regular attendance or practice at home. A minimum of 2classes/week is the recommendation to experience the benefits.

Yoga Etiquette

  • Try to be punctual to each class. However, late comers are welcome as we understand life happens. Please walk in quietly if you are late.
  • Wash or hand sanitizer as soon as you arrive.
  • No shoes in the studio please. Socks or bare feet okay.
  • Usually no talking when class starts, however, you’re more than welcome to ask questions & request more feedback.
  • Be mindful of using strong smelling deodorants and perfumes.
  • Try to stay for the guided meditation practice (Savasana) at the end of class. If you need to leave early, it is better to leave before Savasana. Please let your teacher know if you need to leave before the Savasana starts.
