Starts 17th April.


This class is a high energy vinyasa flow class to get your day body moving and your mind
flowing. The practice will open with a rooting meditation, intention setting and a good
opening stretch.

The practice then picks up pace with swiftly moving sun salutations (A&B) and a vigorous
ladder flow approach to the class (repeating and adding asana at pace on each side of the
body). As the class progresses, strength, conditioning and held asana will also be explored.
The practice will close with a Savasana, meditation and reaffirmation of set intentions, to
start the day with movement rooted in intension and physical practice. You will feel calm,
energised and physically prepared to start the day.

Please note, in this class, mats, blocks and bricks will be provided.
NB: This course will run and book in six week blocks

‘I like to think of myself as a gentle caring soul, trapped in body with a big beard. I will welcome you with
open tattooed arms and you will be forever happy that our paths crossed. Yoga has changed my life and I
know it can change yours’
