Vinyasa Flow › Morning Energiser
These practices are great for the morning. They are especially designed to give you some get up and go, no matter how much time you have; if you're giving yourself a short weekday gift of starting the day well or a beautiful, longer energising weekend practice to give yourself the time and space you need to feel just great.
We think you'll find that the day goes with so much more panache and ease after you start the day by getting moving.
Energising Yoga Flow
This dynamic vinyasa yoga class is the perfect pick me up, easing you in with a short pranayama (breath exercise), some mobility and stretching. Then expect a strong, vinyasa flow covering all areas of tension and tightness in the body. It’s a full mind and body experience; it is fast and invigorating, yet will leave you feeling calm and energised. Modifications will be offered for those who want to soften or advance the practice.
Morning Yoga for Vitality

When we start the morning feeling fully rested we are able to give so much more to the day! After the relaxing start, expect lots of balancing poses including tree and warrior three. You will need to use a clear wall.
Back & Core Strengthening Yoga
This really fun, strengthening yoga and movement class creatively works the back and core. Expect a full warm up and workout with options for all abilities.

Mandala Salutations: Fiery Flanks
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.
