Yoga

Yoga

Yoga is the perfect choice for those looking to focus on developing their yoga practice. It's also a great option for those looking to ease into getting active, those looking to build strength and focusing on rehabilitation and recovery. As part of MSAC's Group Fitness offering, a number of different Yoga class types are provided. Read up on the various types of yoga offered at MSAC below. Currently yoga is only offered at MSAC.

ASHTANGA BASED FLOW

Emphasis is on cultivating and sustaining an inner calm throughout a challenging practice. Ashtanga Yoga comprises postures taught in a form known as ‘vinyasa’ which links postures in a flow designed to strengthen, align and purify the entire body and mind.


HATHA 

This form of yoga focuses on simple poses that flow from one to the other at a very comfortable pace. This class focuses on breathing, meditation, endurance and flexibility. Hatha Yoga is ideal for winding down at the end of the day.


HOT

Hot Yoga is a flowing, Vinyasa style of linked poses, practiced in a studio maintained at 28C – 37C. Practicing yoga in a heated environment assists the muscles to warm up more quickly, allowing deeper range in postures, and increasing the function of our body’s internal health.


*Bookings for Hot Yoga classes are required at the gym reception desk. 

Please note: If you are not a Performance member, you will need to upgrade to this membership to gain access to the Hot Yoga classes.


IYENGAR

Iyengar’s benefits includes toning muscles, eliminating tension and easing chronic pain. Iyengar yoga will give you a good knowledge of classic yoga poses such as alignment and inner awareness.


RESTORE

Restore Yoga guides you into a deeper awareness of the subtleties of your physical body through gentle and mindful movement. This in turn helps to soothe your nervous system and restore your body on all levels so that you can live with greater vitality.


VINYASA

Aim to purify your body through increased circulation. This class is a fast paced style of yoga, strengthening the body and mind through synchronised breathing and flowing movements. It also strengthens tendons and hard tissues and improves flexibility. Some popular yoga styles are actually Vinyasa styles such as Astanga Yoga.


YIN

Yin Yoga is unique in that you are asked to relax in the posture, soften the muscle and move closer to the bone. While yang-like yoga practices are more superficial, Yin offers a much deeper access to the body. It is not uncommon to see postures held for three to five minutes. The time spent in these postures is much like time spent in meditation.
