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.
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 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.

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.
