Chances are most (if not all) of your questions will be answered on these pages.
Our signature Hot Yoga class is Hot Yoga 26 (Bikram) which was the original Hot Yoga. This class is available as an express or a longer 75 or 90 minute class and is a “prescription” of postures designed to work the entire body. Practicing in the heat has many benefits, not least it helps to increase your cardio workout and aids with detoxification through sweat as well as helping you get further into postures.
We offer a chance to truly unwind with our restorative and yin yoga classes. These classes are practiced in residual heat to allow the body to relax further and stretch deeper, these slower classes focus more on releasing and relaxing. We use breathwork and yoga nidra meditation to bring awareness to the mind and the body. These classes are a great accompaniment to the energetic/yang style practices, allowing the body to recover and reduce the risk of injury.
Our signature Pilates class is our hugely popular Inferno Hot Pilates and we are the only studio in the North West to offer this unique workout which combines Pilates principles with HIIT. To compliment this we also have Mat based Pilates, ideal for those who want to focus on strengthening their core and improving posture and Barre Pilates, a hybrid of mat based Pilates and Barre (this is the ultimate booty workout!).
Hells Bells is a kettlebell workout which is all about movement, joint mobility, explosive power, strengthening connective tissues and building mental focus. This 45-minute workout will leave you feeling STRONG and powerful and is great for burning fat!
Aerial Yoga is a unique form of Yoga using a hammock as a versatile prop and is a playful and fun way to practice yoga. With the weight of the body supported you can learn how to achieve proper postural alignment through relaxation rather than effort, producing a peaceful state of mind and a wonderful feeling of lightness in the body.
