Buti Yoga

45 minutes

The word 'buti' is an Indian Marathi term for 'a cure hidden beneath the surface'. Buti Yoga is a soulful blend of vinyasa yoga, cardio-intensive tribal dance & deep abdominal toning set to kick-ass dance jams. This movement practice is designed to help develop body confidence, break through emotional & physical barriers & transform your body from the inside-out. Buti is unique in that the classes are never planned & we do all the movement alongside you - we move together to the beat of the music, get out of our heads & into our bodies. Open to all levels (not suitable for mid-late stage pregnancy).

Vinyasa Flow

60 minutes

This dynamic style of practice links asana (postures) and breath to help build your internal fire. This flowing practice allows you to embrace the present moment. Through presence strength is built in both the body and the mind. Open to all levels. 

Primal Flow

45 minutes

Prima Flow uses elements of traditional Vinyasa, Kundalini and modern Buti Yoga, along with inspiration from tribal dance and animal movement. This fun and energising movement practice encourages students to tap into their power, unleash their creativity, and create space to let go and feel. Expect to break from typical linear movement patterns, release energetic blockages, and connect more deeply with your body and breath.

Restorative Yin

60 minutes

Yin Yoga is a meditative and profoundly relaxing practice, nourishing the deeper tissues of our body, regaining ease and mobility in our joints, relieving tension and pain while calming the nervous system. The simple, passive, seated and lying poses are held for 3-5 minutes to stimulate the fascia tissue, while deeply restoring other areas of the body with the support of bolsters and blankets. We stimulate and enhance the flow of energy through the body to create a profound sense of calmness, focus and equanimity.

Barre

45 minutes

This is an effective full body workout aiming to strengthen, lengthen & tone. You'll be guided through a series of low impact, high reps, moderate intensity movements that are designed to challenge your body & mind. Using a variety of props such as light weights, squishy balls & bands you'll be sure to have a fun & energising class. Suitable for all levels - no experience necessary!

Yogalates Fusion

45 minutes

This fun open level class is a modern fusion of Pilates, Yoga, Barre, stretching and more! There is a particular focus on core strength, balance & flexibility using a variety of props such as light weights, booty bands, squishy balls & foam rollers. With flowing, dynamic moves and feel-good vibes you'll leave feeling invigorated and challenged!

Power Vinyasa Yoga

60 minutes

This Power Vinyasa class incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) as well as longer holds, to build internal heat & improve stamina, strength & flexibility. Killer core workout at the end too before settling into an endorphin filled shavasana. This open level practice will have you moving, breathing & finding your flow!

Stretch & Roll

30 minutes

This short & sweet 30 minute restorative class releases tight & tired muscles & calms the mind.  A combination of dynamic & active feel good movements, massage balls, & foam rollers for self-myofascial release will not only feel amazing, but will also help increase blood flow & aid in muscle recovery! This class is hugely complimentary to your other more 'active' classes throughout the week.

Mums & Bubs Yoga
