We currently have the following yoga classes:
- Introductory Yoga Course – Comprise of 10 x 1 hour classes over a 10 week period. During the course students will be introduced to introductory yoga postures and get an understanding of the actions and breath required when practicing the postures. The course is intended for those who are new to yoga. Introductory Courses are held throughout the year and align with school terms.
- Gentle Class – This class is for students new to yoga or students who are looking for a gentle slow paced class where props are used to support students. The pace of the class is slower than the Introductory Yoga Courses and the Beginner classes. No prior experience is required to attend this class. The duration of the class is 1 hour 15 minutes.
- Beginner Class – Intended for beginners who have completed the Introductory Course or who have experienced yoga before. The duration of the class is 1 hour 15 minutes.
- General Class – Intended for students who have prior yoga experience. In these classes, we will be moving towards headstand (Sirsasana), more challenging back bends (e.g. Urdhva Dhanurasana) and performing introductory Pranayama (yogic breathing). The duration of the class is 1 hour 30 minutes.
- Experienced Class – Intended for experienced students who can already hold Sirsasana (headstand), who can hold the more challenging back bends e.g. Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow) and have experience with introductory Pranayama. The duration of the class is 1 hour 45 minutes.
- Restorative Class – Restorative classes include poses that promote relaxation and stillness. As the restorative poses will be supported they will be held for a longer duration than other classes with the focus on the breath. The classes will also include introductory Pranayama (yogic breathing) at the end of the class.
Our classes are inspired by Iyengar Yoga, which is a form of Hatha Yoga developed by B K S Iyengar. BKY Iyengar devoted his life to the teaching of yoga and has been recognized worldwide for his contribution to yoga.
All equipment is provided however; students are welcome to bring their own mat.
Our Yoga teachers include Leonie Wierenga, Pat Farnsworth, Samantha Baker and Stuart Macrow.
