Some classes may have arm balances and inversions peppered in. You’ll be flowing smoothly from one pose to the next, as each segment of the class is linked by a Sun Salutation Each class will vary slightly depending on the teacher, but all classes will follow a general structure to ensure that your overall experience is balanced and cohesive.
We offer a fast paced, high intensity, body toning workout in just 50 minutes. Work smarter, not longer fusing elements of traditional reformer pilates, cardio, weights and endurance training.
Y Reformer pilates will help tone and sculpt your body like nothing you’ve tried before.
Iyengar yoga is a systematic and comprehensive method of practice concerned with the development and cultivation of body-mind awareness, balance and understanding of yoga principles through the practice of Asanas (poses) and Pranayama (breathing techniques). The emphasis on integrated alignment and progressive learning is central to the practice. It aims to promote energy flow, increase stability and freedom and reduce stress and injury. Props are often used to assist with this. Poses are taught in cycles to help build understanding and confidence. Inversions such as head stand and shoulder stand (or a modified version of these) are introduced gradually and always in accordance with students’ capacity and progress. It is recommended that the practice of Pranayama commences once asana practice is steady and regular.
Training to teach in the Iyengar Yoga method requires a commitment to a rigorous and systematic method of training and ongoing professional development within the requirements of the BKS Iyengar Association of Australia.

Yin Yoga is the polar opposite to our dynamic flowing classes, and a superb complement to the more “yang” style of Power Vinyasa Yoga. Yin classes involve long, rejuvenating holds in restorative forward bends, hip openers, and inversions. You will experience deep release as you work through areas of the body that habitually hold tension and stress. In Yin we are not pushing or striving to achieve instead we sit and accept where we are. You will leave feeling more open, content and incredibly relaxed. A must for all yogis, beginner to advanced!
