Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Vinyasa flow is a dynamic and challenging practice, a meditation in movement that blends the practices and wisdom of many yogic styles. The main focus during the class is on the breath, and synchronising the breath with movement through a series of postures. Students are encouraged to observe their bodies and to playfully, safely explore their boundaries with attention to correct foundations and alignment. Regular practice will build strength and flexibility and you will walk away from class feeling strong, refreshed and energized.
Rocket Yoga is an accessible sequence of poses (asanas) based on the primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga. A Rocket lesson is fun, dynamic, fast-paced, strong and playful. It gets you out of your comfort zone with a mix of arm balances, inversions, and backbends. Modifications are offered so the class is suitable for different levels of yogis.
Pilates is an intense full body workout that uses one’s own weight as resistance to strengthen the body’s core, elongate the spine, improve overall posture, and create long, lean muscles with definition and sculpted tone. Pilates exercises encourage flexibility, control, balance, help prevent injury, and build strength – without adding bulk. Our Mat Pilates classes are sometimes done with the addition of small equipment such as foam rollers, Pilates balls or light weights to challenge you and keep things interesting!
A challenging, low impact, total body workout that focuses on strengthening the core and elongating musculature. Reformer Pilates is a resistance based exercise that uses springs and pulleys to strengthen and stretch allowing the body to develop into a long, strong, lean form.

With hundreds of exercises Pilates will push you farther than you ever thought your body could go. With highly focused attention to individuals and a contemporary approach that takes advantage of current physical therapy techniques, we create a challenging and safe workout.

THE BOUNCE WORKOUT
Using a mini-trampoline, this class is part cardio, part sculpting.
It’s a low impact but high intensity class in which we use an interval training format (where we constantly raise and lower the heart rate) for maximum effect.
