Create heat and energy through your body as you are guided through a series of dynamic postures by linking your breath with movement, stretch, tone and energise your entire body before finishing the...

Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic moving style of yoga which joins physical postures with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice. Flow classes are designed to cultivate heat in the body with creative sequences including sun salutations or standing and seated postures, with a strong focus on the power of breath awareness.

Slow flow is a calming but fluid Vinyasa Yoga class, moving from posture to posture by linking your breath with movement. Each class will have a theme, which will be creatively interwoven throughout. Expect to leave centred but not too sweaty. Great for those newer to yoga or for those who prefer a calmer, rather than a sweaty, dynamic class.

Emily Weathers

Emily travelled to India, the birth place of Yoga, to train and which was the most beautiful and challenging experience. It taught her an inner calm when faced with adversity and to accept that strength is balanced with a softness that is sometimes labelled as failure in the Western world.

Let yoga be your union, your acceptance that all experiences and people are unique and different and allow it to help you accept this about you, the individual you, without judgement or comparison to others.
