Yoga Styles

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is an overarching term for most yoga practised in the West, incorporating asanas (the physical poses) as well as pranayama (breath) and relaxation to achieve mental and physical balance and wellbeing. All other forms of yoga at the studio also come under this term, but we list the teachers who do not follow a particular style here.

Instructors: Susan - Tessa - Tomek - Diana - Lucie - Julie

Iyengar yoga

This is a form of hatha yoga developed by Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar with the use of props such as blocks, blankets and belts. Correct alignment of the body ensures you work safely, with maximum benefit to your flexibility, strength and wellbeing. All eight limbs of yoga are introduced, including pranayama and learning to focus attention. Buy Iyengar yoga class passes and register online for in-person or online classes.

Pilates

Pilates works to strengthen the centre, lengthen the spine, increase body awareness, build muscle tone and gain flexibility.

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention with gentleness, curiosity and acceptance.
