Adventures in Rewilding: Yoga and Somatics

This class is a celebration of movement which starts with a somatic warm up, plays with variations of moon pose, creates a sense of centring in horse pose and flows creatively with cartwheel. This class is perfect if you're looking for something a little different, playful, adventurous and fun. It is ideal if you have an established practice and plenty of mobility.
Rainbow Vinyasa Purple(5): Transcendence
Rainbow Vinyasa Green/Blue(4): Free As A Bird
Fly like a bird and find freedom in this short but intense advanced vinyasa yoga class focusing on hip and shoulder opening. To achieve full variations of these yoga poses you may need to have already have warmed up with a less intense yoga class, perhaps try practicing the other classes in this Rainbow sequence to build up to this? This vinyasa is sequenced with variations on our usual bird poses, expect to fly into poses including pigeon, working with low lunges ready for bird of paradise, firefly (titibasana), side crane, then working with more shoulder opening to peacock pose, pincha mayarasana and then dropping back into wheel before shoulder stand variations. Enjoy the freedom!

With some Yin yoga poses and some restorative variations, this class will get you settled and ready to transform to your gentlest form. You will need a bolster, yoga block, strap or belt and eye mask if you have one.
Gentle Vinyasa: Butterfly Metamorphosis
This transformative, gentle vinyasa is perfect for early evening or early morning, or when you're looking to transform your body and mind via vinyasa. The class isn't beginners level, but includes more gentle vinyasa than the rest of the Metamorphosis sequence, including some yin poses to counterbalance all the yang in our lives.
Dawn Vinyasa: Emerging Metamorphosis
This strong, intermediate vinyasa practice is great to get you started in your day and emerge renewed. With a focus on stretching and strengthening the side body with side plank variations, moving through vinyasa to standing stretches, and moving into headstand variations, it is a great way to emerge, refreshed and renewed into your day.
Feisty Vinyasa: Exploring butterfly
Exploring the butterfly theme. An adventurous, advanced vinyasa class which opens up the shoulders, chest and features backbends as well as balances. We recommend that you're already warmed up and ready to go, and the class flows swiftly into challenging poses and sequences. You'll need to finish the class with a long relaxation, so do go ahead and pick a relaxation class for afterwards. Expect variations on inversions and backbends and prepare to explore the transitioning butterfly.
Up With The Lark
Soothing The Warrior
A creatively sequenced flow to sooth and nourish. The warrior isn't always about being driven but sometimes being patient and listening. This slow vinyasa yoga class is as soothing as it is strengthening. It's great whenever you need to be centred, or relaxed, or if you're on your moon cycle. With peak poses as dancer to warrior 3 balancing sequences, this isn't the most traditionally relaxing class, but it does find a way to feel watery with soothing qualities whilst working strongly.
Awakening The Warrior
Wake yourself up with this flow to awaken the warrior within you! A sequence based around warrior poses to energise, cleanse and stabilise. Intermediate level sequence including a headstand flow, only to be practiced if you're an experienced headstand practitioner. You will need a block.
Approaching The Warrior
Learn to be a warrior! An introduction to weaving the warrior for beginners or for all of us who like to get back to basics. The warrior gives us the strength to lean in to life. Now is the best time to start to approach the warrior in yourself with this warrior flow. You may need blocks.
Embodying The Warrior
Advanced Vinyasa - Flow & Balance
Sun & Moon Balancing Vinyasa
This is a wonderful advanced class balancing the yin with the yang to create a physically stimulating yet spiritually fulfilling vinyasa. If it is in your practice you can enjoy strong inversions including headstand and handstand but also plenty of opportunities to honour the resting moments, dropping deep and surrendering the mind.
Enjoy this beautiful yin class when you need a bit of a luxurious, supported pick-me-up, for your moon time or just before bed. A fantastic practice if you've had a tough day and you need a bit of TLC. Plenty of ease-ful, supportive poses - all supine or seated, no standing poses for added YIN-tastic vinyasa.
