Pilates FLEX

Pilates FLEX is a strength, mobility and flexibility class for today’s lifestyle. Is your body feeling tight? Lower back, hips and shoulders need releasing? Pilates FLEX will improve your mobility, strength and flexibility in one motivating class.

Yoga

Yoga developed over thousands of years as a way of life that focuses on the union between body & mind to achieve a state of meditative consciousness called Samadhi. It originated in India many thousands of years ago. In the West, we tend to practice the asana/physical part of that lifestyle. Asanas are traditionally sitting poses that are held for a period of time, although in modern day Yoga there are hundreds of poses and dozens of Yoga styles which can be delivered fast or slow, sweaty or calm. Very good for stress relief!

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga unites movement and breath; the word Vinyasa means ‘to place with consciousness’, so we will be moving from posture to posture, working with our breath and working up a bit of heat’. The skill level is suitable for Yoga beginners, but the class is physical, using low impact, whole-body exercises to increase the intensity, so you will need to be currently exercising, but you don’t need to be flexible. There will also be an opportunity to ‘play’ and focus on one of the stronger poses or balances during the class too.

You can book a class at £10 PAYG F2F (COVID restrictions dependant) or purchase a 5 or 10 Class Pass at a discounted rate, or we also offer this class online at £4.

Slow Flow

Slow Flow is based on flowing Hatha Yoga meaning that we will be holding poses for longer than in a Vinyasa class. The focus is on connecting mind body and breath to improve flexibility and balance.  This slightly slower session is excellent for post workout, or for those newer to yoga, so it will leaving you feeling taller, calmer and prepared for a good night’s sleep. Suitable for almost all abilities; involves moving from the floor to standing and back down again.

You can book a class at £10 PAYG F2F (COVID restrictions dependant) or purchase a 5 or 10 Class Pass at a discounted rate, or we also offer this class online at £4.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a super slow, softer form of Yoga, where you work on the stiffer tissues in your body such as ligaments and tendons to improve the mobility of your joints, and help to clear blockages in your body’s energy channels (meridians). We spend around 3 minutes, sometimes more, in each postures, relaxing into the poses as comfortably as we can, so it is quite different; some people find staying still for that length of time quite challenging. Yin just makes you feel calm, contented and at one with your body. You will need a pillow, cushion & blanket for this class – we usually offer it on the second Thursday of each month – please check the timetable on Gymcatch to confirm dates.

You can book a class at £10 PAYG F2F (COVID restrictions dependant) or purchase a 5 or 10 Class Pass at a discounted rate, or we also offer this class online at £4.
