Vinyasa flow is dynamic flowing style of yoga. It's really popular and we love it because it covers a real breadth of teachers and teaching styles from a fast 'power' flow to an alignment based or more meditative flow. Vinyasa flow is when we harmonize breath and movement to give strength, grace and freedom.
A Frame In Which To Fly
Turning Toward Awareness: Yoga, Qigong & Mindfulness
Feel centred, grounded and start to fine tune your awareness with this gentle and beautiful fusion of yoga, qigong and mindfulness class with a focus on twists and forward folds. With a gentle start, working with mindful movement, this is a practice exploring how we might work with twists as a way to discover greater ease and space in our physical, mental and emotional experience of being human. With twists, we are invited to curve our awareness inward and we grant ourselves space to learn to respond to whatever experiences arise. From this, we allow ourselves time to build better resources to meet the business of our outward lives.
Opening The Shoulders
The focus of this creatively-sequenced intermediate vinyasa is to release holding and tightness around the shoulders and reconnect the shoulders blades deep into the back. With an open chest, the heart can breathe more fully again. Working with back lengthening and strengthening poses this will help to create support, ease and poise. You will need a blanket (or rolled up yoga mat), 2 foams blocks and a strap.
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.
Lotus Focused Vinyasa Flow
An intermediate/advanced level vinyasa yoga class. The lotus is a great symbol for moving into stillness to expand our consciousness. This fabulously sequenced hip- focused yoga class is a playful exploration of half lotus to help release and open the hips and pelvis and create a secure and rooted foundation for body and consciousness which will enhance spinal alignment and allow the flow of prana to move more freely through this channel and the wingspan of the back. You may need blanket, 2 foam blocks and a strap.
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.
Vinyasa on the Soft Side of Life
This well-rounded full body stretch, gentle yoga class has a focus on luscious side bends. Side bends are a fabulous way to move the whole body. They help open space in the lungs and respiratory muscles but are also highly therapeutic for the spine, back, and core. When these areas are less tense and more free, maybe you might feel that you can slide into that precious soft side of life. Although the class is gentle, you may find the moves tough!
Full Body Tune Up
When is a vinyasa not a vinyasa? When it's full body tune up. This yoga class isn't yoga in the traditional way. Class focuses on full mobility in the body working systematically through all the joints and works on range of motion. If there's any class that everyone should do everyday to make sure that the whole body is tuned, it should be this class. The class is all-levels, although including some headstand variations which of course should be practiced only if that's in your regular practice. Some of the movements are to a full range of motion, so are tough, so do take class in your own time, at your own pace and only do what is helpful for you. Class ends with a chant.
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.
Twist it Out, Rinse it clean
This is a super twisty dynamic vinyasa flow yoga class that will cleanse out your spine and any tension lodged in your body. A good strong flow practice with steady standing poses, arm balances and twists galore. You will feel rinsed clean and ready to go after this yoga class.
A beautifully sequenced intermediate vinyasa yoga class weaving a variety of arm balances throughout. Working with fluid breath based movement to see and hear the body's narrative more clearly. This enables us to see our lives more clearly and make better decisions. Exploring the art of perspective and opening up to the wonder of what is. You may need blocks and a strap.

Ride the Rhythm Vinyasa
In this soulful, breath-based vinyasa class, we acknowledge the fluctuation of experience, sensation and energy within our practice and our lives. This flow honours the natural rhythm of things, moving slow and strong, with a playful exploration of (optional) inversions and arm balances. You'll need two bricks and a strap.
Strong Centred Flow
A fairly feisty yoga flow. A quick-paced vinyasa suitable for intermediate and advanced students. The focus is on a strong centre, a gathering in, in order to expand out. This class is swift to get moving, great if you want to get a move-on and you'd like to learn a more balanced, stronger and more centred approach to extension and flexion. You may need a few blocks and a strap.
Play with your Power
A more gentle vinyasa yoga class, perfect to come home to yourself anytime you're needing a more gentle flow, but perfect for early evening, in that gap between coming home and preparing for the rest of the evening. Get grounded and stretched, with a hip focus for those of us who work sitting down all day. A perfect release from the day!
