BIKRAM BEGINNERS

Therapeutic, 90 min, 40º
A masterful prescription of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises that progressively works every muscle, ligament, tendon, joint, internal organ and major gland in your body. The heated room facilitates joint movement, muscle elasticity and detoxification.

BIKRAM SILENT

Peaceful, 90min, 40º
Designed for the regular Bikram practitioner. Enjoy the classic 26+2 sequence in a beautifully serene and quiet setting. Low lighting and minimal instruction allows you to listen to your body on a subtle level. We recommend a minimum experience of 10 Bikram Beginners classes.

BIKRAM ALIGN

Alignment, 90min, 40º
The classic Bikram class with particular focus on individual alignment, this class encourages questions and will help you finely tune your existing practice.

YIN

Relaxing, 60min, 25-30º
Yin Yoga is a mix between traditional Chinese medicine and the Indian science of yoga. A relaxing floor-based practice which involves long holds adapted to suit each individual body. Relaxation, rather than effort, provides a deep release into the connective tissues and joints with emphasis on the hips and the energetic pathways running through the body.

VINYASA

Flowing, 60 min, 25-30º
Fluid sequences are linked together with vinyasa flows. Emphasis is placed on the synchronisation of breath and movement. Vinyasa classes are great for improving upper body strength and cardiovascular health. Our teachers provide a creative class with changing sequences. This class is designed for all levels, offering gentle alternatives and more dynamic challenges according to your needs.

HOT PILATES

Strong, 45 min, 34º
A challenging, full body, low impact, high intensity workout using Pilates principles, moving with rhythm, control and with the breath, incorporating high intensity interval training (HIIT) combining cardio with Pilate stretches and undertones of yoga and mindfulness.

BIKRAM EXTENSION CLASS

Intermediate, 2hs, 38º
Once a month we give you opportunity to extend your mind and body slightly further as we delve into some additional postures and sequences, building on the foundation of the 26 postures you already know with some extra spine twists, backbends, hip openings and drills.
Next class - 23rd Nov, 5pm (replacing the silent class)

READY TO START?

Arrive hydrated, with an empty stomach, this is the most comfortable and beneficial way to practice. Aim to arrive 15-20 minutes before class to give yourself time orientate, acclimatise, turn off your phone, set up your mat and relax.

 

STIFF, INJURED, IN PAIN?

We can help you get moving again, a millimetre at a time. The Bikram method was created for people with chronic pain and ailments. The sequence is specifically designed to provide an effective healing practice. Postures are modified within the regular class according to individual needs. Gentle stretching provides the circulation and nourishment the whole body requires for healing. *Please inform your teacher of existing injuries or health problems before you begin, we’ll ensure you practice safely. If you have any questions please email us.

 

YOUTH

Yoga is becoming increasingly popular in schools with studies demonstrating that it can reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and mood imbalances. It also improves posture, increases strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. Teenagers are welcome to attend all of our classes with a signed waiver from their parent/guardian.

Children ages 7-12 are welcome to practice the Bikram class, we recommend the second half of class with their parent/guardian. There is an area where children can sit outside the yoga room for the first half of class.

WHAT YOU NEED

Bikram Yoga

  • Shorts, leggings, crops and t-shirts are suitable, choose a light breathable fabric.
  • Bring a yoga mat, a bottle of water and a large towel to cover your mat (bring a second towel if you wish to shower).
  • We recommend to change after class and bring a bag for your sweaty unmentionables.

Yin Yoga

  • Wear comfortable clothes you can move in.
  • Bring a towel or light blanket to lay over the bolster
  • We provide complementary mats, bolsters, blocks and straps. (Bring your own equipment if you prefer).

Bikram/Yin back to back

  • To avoid transferring sweat onto the yin mats & bolsters bring a change of clothes and use a towel to cover the bolster. There is time for a quick shower in between classes.

Vinyasa

  • Bring a yoga mat and a bottle of water
DURING CLASS

Pace yourself, just do the best you can without straining or holding your breath. Practice without expectation or judgement. You can sit down and take a break whenever you need to. You don’t have to ‘win’ yoga, there’s no one to compete with but yourself.

 

AFTER CLASS

When practicing in a hot room you may need to take electrolytes to replace the calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium the body loses through sweat. You can take electrolytes before class as well, find what suits you best. Magnesium is also absorbed through the skin so we highly recommend taking a float with our friends in the next room @liquidzen.
Take your second class within 24 hours to bypass muscle soreness.
We recommend practicing 3 or more times a week in the beginning, so you can see what the yoga has to offer you.
