Which class is right for you?

HATHA YOGA

This is one of the traditional forms of yoga practice, from which other types have originated. Using a combination of asanas (poses) and controlled breathing, it is as physically demanding (or not) as you make it. Classes start with sun salutations (surya namaskars) and finish with savasana relaxation.

Suitable for: all levels of fitness and experience.

ASHTANGA YOGA

Ashtanga with Zoë is a wonderfully dynamic practice! Taught in classical sequence encompassing physical asana practice with bandhas, philosophy, chanting and breath work. Zoë is a free spirit with a love for body art and spiritualism. Join her on the mat for a heady, vigorous yoga practice coupled with soft, beautiful chanting and feel the magic flood the mind during relaxation afterwards.

Suitable for: anyone who is reasonably fit and wants a physical challenge, plus those who would like to extend their yoga practice by focusing on precision in their asanas.

VINYASA YOGA

Vinyasa, meaning ‘flow’, is one of the most popular forms of yoga. It interlinks postures to create a flowing, more dynamic physical challenge using a beautiful mix of strengthening but also softening and releasing asanas (poses) to encourage you to let go. It incorporates breath work (pranayama), alignment, mindfulness and challenges for focus and fun, but again culminates in savasana relaxation so you’re left energised, refreshed and positive.

Suitable for: all levels of experience. A moderate level of fitness required – although you don’t have to be a gym bunny!

WOMEN'S NURTURING YOGA

A blissful start to the morning of deep relaxation and soul nourishment. This women-only class explores various forms of meditation, breath work and gentle, flowing yoga postures to leave you feeling deeply relaxed, soft and open. Cathy brings her experience of shamanic healing and facilitating women’s circles, along with years of teaching yoga from a soul-centred perspective. This class will appeal to those seeking a sanctuary-like space to relax, heal and reconnect to their own divine feminine energy. 

Suitable for: all women!

FITNESS YOGA

A mixed-level Saturday morning class to set you up in a great frame of mind for the weekend. The emphasis is not just about fitness and peace of mind, but about balance, co-ordination and posture. Integrating movement, breathing and mental focus, it improves physical and mental health as well as spiritual awareness.

FOUNDATION YOGA

Based on the principles of hatha yoga, foundation yoga is just that: postures that create the foundation of your yoga practice. This class is perfect for those who want to strengthen their core yoga practice, those who are new to yoga or returning after a long time off and those who fancy the idea of yoga but haven't a clue what it involves. With the instructor giving plenty of alignment cues and corrections, you will feel your yoga practice growing stronger each week. We will work on physically strengthening our bodies but also strengthening the mind with the use of pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation/relaxation.

Suitable for: beginners and anyone wanting to consolidate their practice. As physically demanding as you wish to make it – it will be your choice each week to work more physically or mentally.
