& class types
OUR AERIAL CLASSES
The hammock is a wonderful and versatile tool. It enables practitioners to take their practice off the ground and into the air, challenging and encouraging courage, balance, strength and stretch. For those who are still developing their strength, the hammock is a friend who lends support, allowing them to go into poses they might otherwise find too demanding.
Enjoy the spinal decompression and happy hormone-inducing benefits of inversions. You’ll fall in love with the hammock in no time. All Aerial classes will incorporate inversions.
Learn the fundamentals of Aerial and the techniques to stay safe while having fun in the hammock. Unless you have prior aerial experience and are confident staying in an inversion for several minutes at once, Beginner class and instructor sign-off is a must before you participate in Aerial Core & Strength or Aerial Stretch. This is for your own safety and for the most enjoyable aerial experience.
Bend, don’t break! A fun fusion of yoga, Pilates and dance moves that leverage the hammock to go deeper into stretches, allowing you to release those tight knots, tension in your muscles and especially decompress your spine. While the focus is on stretching, there will be some conditioning to prepare you for more advanced poses in the future. For your safety, you must have prior Aerial experience or received instructor sign-off after Aerial Beginner to take this class.
Aerial Yin YANG
You’ll find a lovely balance of quiet and calm in both nurturing and trigger point-releasing poses with the hammock, as well as some delicious energetic stretches for your tight muscles. After relaxing inversions, experience the tranquility of savasana in the air as the gentle sway of the hammock melts away any remaining stress.
OUR YOGA CLASSES
A holistic exercise that focuses on breathwork and poses that both strengthen and stretch. Depending on class type and intent, poses could be static or dynamic. Attention to tuning inwards and listening to your body and calming the mind are fostered in the practice of yoga.
We do not practise religious aspects of yoga, so all are welcomed in this programme.
Also known as Vinyasa, this class provides you with an energetic and flowing practice as you move from pose to pose. Due to the dynamic nature of the class, it is not recommended for yoga beginners as there is less time between poses for guidance.
Yoga For better posture
Enjoy a happier spine and shoulders with yoga poses that help to release tension and strengthen key areas on your body to support pain-free living and a beautiful posture.
Find your calm. A beautiful practice where the practitioner relaxes into poses that are held for longer periods of time to perform myofascial release (release of trigger points in the connective tissues). Physical benefits include improved circulation of the blood, lymphatic system and chi. Yin trains the practitioner to leverage the breath to maintain composure and focus, even in challenging poses.
Yoga Yin Yang
This all-rounder class provides the right balance of muscle-strengthening and stretching poses and tension-relieving holds for myofascial release. Ideal for the busy bee.
Our pilates classes
Pilates is a structured exercise that strengthens and tones without adding bulk to the body. There is also the complementary aspect of stretch in the workouts, with emphasis on correct breathing techniques.
Body alignment is an important focus of Pilates, to ensure benefits are maximized and injury is prevented.
The classic Pilates workout is performed on the mat!
Discover new-found stretch and strength in your muscles through a series of exercises as our instructors guide you on the right breathing techniques to complement your workout.
Pilates for better posture
A beneficial class in this modern day when sitting or standing for long hours and excessive use of mobile devices can wreak havoc for our posture, causing tight neck and shoulders, backaches and tight hips and glutes. This hour of exercises will help alleviate the tension and correct your posture.
