We Have 2-Day & 2-Hour Workshops!
A traditional 90-minute class, counted in Sanskrit, that takes you through the full primary series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa method. Students are led through the vinyasas in a continuous fashion, with an emphasis on asana names and breath counts.

Core Work is a specialised 1 hour class dedicated to creating awareness into our core. During the class, students will learn techniques and poses that will enable them to engage and strengthen the core muscles.
In our Gentle Vinyasa Flow class, you'll be exposed to the same poses and seamless transitions typically found in a regular Vinyasa flow class, but at a slower pace.
