Yoga

The beautiful thing about yoga is that there are so many different approaches. As we go through our life cycles, hopefully we are able to find a practice that suits us."

Why do Yoga?

 

Yoga originated in ancient India and was first codified by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras around 400 C.E. It became popular in the west in the 20th century. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to yoke,” or “to unite”. The practice aims to create union between body, mind and spirit.

There are many ways to practice yoga and there is a practice suitable for everybody. From Vinyasa, to Yin Yoga or specialised pregnancy yoga classes.

 

The benefits of yoga are infinite and varied! Yoga is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It can also make an excellent addition to your exiting training.

Yoga can help:

  • Improve flexibility

  • Helps with stress relief

Yoga Classes

Morning Yoga class

Morning Yoga

Morning yoga can be a beautiful way to kick start the day. Invigorate your body and mind in this flow class. You will be guided through a creative sequence that builds strength, flexibility, balance, and mental clarity. This class is taught at multiple levels allowing anyone to participate. This class will strengthen your body and mind. Some beginners may feel challenged and we encourage students new to yoga to listen to their body and find a comfortable range that is supportive in practice.

Yoga nidra

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is a deeply restorative meditation practice designed to rest the body and calm the mind.

We make savasana shape, (the shape we make at the end of yoga class to rest the body after movement) and follow the voice that is guiding you. As a meditative practice, we bring our awareness to our body and our breath. It’s simple and anyone can practice it.

Open to all levels, no prior yoga experience required.

Family Yoga Class

Family Yoga

Big Kids, Little kids and Kids at heart come together in a light-hearted environment for individual, partner and family yoga fun! Age and developmentally appropriate yoga poses, animated breathing exercises and soothing relaxation techniques awaken the inner-child of all age participants. This bonding class is open to extended family members and caregivers too! No yoga experience required but a willingness to have fun is a must.

Suitable for Grown- Ups of all ages PLUS Kids 3- 12 years

Evening Yoga

Evening Yoga is a challenging vinyasa based class combining strength, flexibility and stamina. Long held poses are linked together with flowing movements and breath awareness. 

This class includes breath work, standing and balancing poses, seated postures, backbends, twists and hip openers, arm balances and inversions, followed by relaxation.

Evening Yoga helps you finish the day, stay calm and grounded no matter what life throws your way.

Pregnancy Yoga Class

Pregnancy Yoga

A slow flow yoga class. Poses are held longer and linked together to create a flow of movements. Each pose connects with the rhythm of your breath, giving you time and space to move through the sequence. Learn breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques you’ll use throughout all trimesters, as well as during labour, birth and beyond.

Yin Yoga pose reclining on a bolster

Yin Yoga

A deeply restorative and meditative class where the connective tissues —the tendons, fascia, and ligaments- are stretched to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility.

No sun salutes, planks, chatturanga or standing poses. Instead you’ll do long-held seated, supine and prone poses.

Being still in a pose and bringing your attention to your breath helps you practice mindfulness, a tool that can be transferred from your mat to being more present and patient with your partner and children.

Mums & Bubs Yoga Class

Mums & Bubs Yoga

Mums and bubs yoga combines yoga flows with some more restorative poses. Our mums and bubs classes are focussed on getting you moving and relieving some of the tension that comes with looking after babies. Working on backs, shoulders, tight chests……

Mums and bubs classes are a chance to get out of the house with your baby and move and hopefully relax! There will be some options to involve your baby but our focus is on our new mums. 

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
 

SAM S

Yoganic is one of my favourite places to escape my family and do something for ME. All the teachers are lovely and very accommodating for a ‘beginner’. There are many classes to choose from and many convenient times to suit any busy woman. Small reformer classes mean I get looked after with my technique. I also love that I can buy a pack of 10 classes and it doesn’t need to be used up in a really short period of time like many other places. Thank you Libby for creating a warm and inviting , ‘Pink’ space for me to get back into fitness.

After injuring my back a few years back, I was recommended reformer Pilates classes. Libby was so thorough, taking time to understand my injury and modifying exercises in class to ensure so further injury. What started as rehab has evolved into a genuine enjoyment of all the classes on offer - Barre and Reformer Pilates are my faves but have recently tried Yoga and Family yoga with my girls which were excellent. All of the instructors are well qualified, very thorough and the classes are a great workout but also fun.

CLEM M

I started at Yoganic about 4 months ago and haven't looked back. I do a lot of running and HIIT classes and thought it was time to add reformer pilates/tower to my exercise regime. Libby and the trainers are absolutely amazing. They always explain and demonstrate movements and make allowances for previous injuries. The studio is also super pretty to look at and I always leave feeling amazing. I would highly recommend Yoganic.
