Power Yoga Flow

This power yoga class is a quick, strong and dynamic vinyasa flow, building heat from the start with sun salutations, followed by a strong standing sequence and closing with a backbend and inversion practice. This is an intermediate yoga class due to the pace, although modifications are offered.
Glute Strengthening Workout 1
22:02 | Sylvia Garcia
Conditioning exercises to target your glutes! In our yoga practice, glutes (the big muscles in your bottom) can get neglected. But strong glutes can really help you to strengthen and stabilise your hips and lower back. This class has some strong moves which the less strong and mobile will find tricky, but this class is recommended to be repeated frequently as a great addition to your yoga practice.
Mandala Salutations: Fiery Flanks
34:00 | Katarina Rayburn
This is a swift-moving mandala salutation vinyasa yoga class. If you only have a spare half hour, it’s a sure and fast way to get you flowing and sweating. This power yoga class focuses on stretching and strengthening through your side body. Expect lots of lovely twists, plank variations and (optional) inversions. The mandala practice moves 360 degrees around your mat, so perhaps watch the first couple of flows to find out where Katarina takes you, or listen intently, as you won't always be able to see the screen. This change of perspective is a perfect way to change the way you look at life, getting insight from new ways of seeing things. The class focuses on igniting Agni (internal fire) and bringing awareness to Manipura chakra, our source of willpower and transformation. This class is the pure-flow for those who just need to move but if you want to extend this practice we recommend taking a supine twist to wake up the target area.

Forrest-Inspired Yoga Foundations

This yoga class brings awareness to our foundations: our legs, hips and core. Expect a strong, centred practice that plays with some wobbly lunge and powerful pigeon variations. Class begins by building our inner strength with brahmari breath and deep abdominal exercises; preparing us to move through a warrior-based standing sequence. As we move through our grounded practice today, perhaps consider your relationship to earth - to the ground we walk on. What can we offer up to earth in this practice? What can we feel is being given back? You will need a blanket and a towel rolled up.

This strong, hatha yoga class is inspired by Forrest yoga and designed to ignite the light inside of us. Forrest yoga focuses on releasing a stiff neck and strengthening the shoulders.

31:45 | Vidya Heisel
A yoga class to deepen, strengthen and open the hips, moving to a peak pose of Crescent Moon. Start with sun salutations, then prepare the body with backbends.

Flow through the Retrograde
01:02:48 | Dirish Shaktidas

You will sweat out the stress of the day and ride the waves of your breath through a challenging, creative sequence which will help you fully embody each pose and bring presence to your practice. When you spend more time in the flow state, you will experience greater release, creativity, and ease in daily life. The flow will be followed by some restorative poses to end the sequence. In this class, you will: open and strengthen your body, improve your focus and body awareness, learn to let go through challenging times, challenge and deepen your yoga practice, surrender and shift your awareness to your balance energy.
Fun Forrest Inspired Yoga for Strength
50:23 | Ash Bond
This strong, hatha yoga class is inspired by Forrest yoga; it is strengthening and really great fun! Start with abdominal work and strengthening goddess pose, then explore how to lean into support: support of the props; of our experience; of our deep, considered breath. If you have dipped your toe into the Forrest Yoga pool already, this class is a chance to play with some arm balances and some stronger hamstring work. You will need two blocks, a blanket and a bolster (if you have one) for our exploration of splits and frog over a bolster.
Energising Yoga Flow

Rocket Happy Hour
01:06:33 | Katarina Rayburn
This dynamic vinyasa yoga class is Rocket Yoga - an energetic and invigorating practice which has its roots in Ashtanga vinyasa. Expect something similar to Ashtanga, but with more flight, more variety and perhaps a little more fire than you'd get from a primary series class. This class is fast moving, after sun salutes you'll have the opportunity to get into crow pose, and then plenty of more advanced postures such as arm balances and inversions but modifications will be given. Linking breath and movement, this dynamic class will leave you with a sense of play, fun and you'll certainly feel it. Come with an open and playful mind; leave your ego behind and don't be afraid to fly or fall! You will need two bricks.
Arm Balancing Flow
53:49 | Vidya Heisel
A lovely, swift-moving Advanced vinyasa yoga flow class with a focus on arm balancing. Allthough we open hips, hamstrings and the shoulders ready to arm balance, you'll be surprised that if you're not yet ready to arm balance, or you don't want to do so today, if you visualse them, this can have a wonderful effect!! Enjoy! You will need a blanket.
Learn Bigger Backbends
48:42 | Adam Hocke
An intermediate back-bending yoga class which explores the postures and variations beyond urdhva dhanuarasana (upward bow or wheel pose). After a short warm-up and flow we then proceed step by step into bridge, upward bow, one-legged variations, and inverted staff pose. You will need a brick, a block and a strap.
Energising Cardio & Standing Abs Workout
13:30 | Amy Holly
A fun workout and an invigorating way to start your day. This Barre class will build strength in the core and arms as well as work on your fitness. If you are looking to change up your core routine then standing abs are essential. Probably only seen in dance and boxing, standing while working the abs adds a whole new dimension to your workout. It’s short enough to fit into a busy day but long enough to really make a difference. Put this class with another short class to give you a longer workout and to target specific areas.

Journey Towards Hanumanasana
58:39 | Vidya Heisel
An intermediate flow sequence to prepare the hamstrings, inner groins and extensor muscles for Hanumanasana and Eka Pada Koundinyasana 2 (flying splits).
