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 clean props are set up at the start of class and put away for you. Once you are settled in a spot, you’re guided into becoming present and 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 follows a theme. Breath awareness will be encouraged throughout your practice. Options for postures will be demonstrated to suit the needs of each individual. 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 classes are 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 and dedicated practice through regular attendance or practice at home.

Yoga Etiquette

  • Try to be punctual to each class. Arriving 5 minutes early is best. However, late comers are welcome as we understand life happens. Please walk in quietly if you are late.
  • No shoes in the studio. Socks or bare feet okay.
  • Usually no talking when class starts, however, you’re welcome to ask any burning questions.
  • 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.
