Tell me a bit more about the different classes and which one might be right for me?
Yoga – If you are a complete beginner to Yoga or want to start off gradually and gently, then try either our Yin or Hatha Yoga classes. Classes described as Focus Flow are generally for those with some Yoga experience or those with no restrictive health issues. Dynamic Flow is fast paced and only suitable for those with Yoga experience.
Pilates – If you are new to Pilates then all our Pilates classes are suitable for Beginners (with no or mild restrictive or limiting physical health issues). The Pilates Plus is for those with experience. If you have specific mobility issues we would recommend you check with the studio first as a course for Complete Beginners may be more suitable.
These are general guidelines. If you have specific health needs please check the suitability of the class with the studio first.
