Class Types

At Breeze Yoga, we offer a wide range of Yoga, Pilates and Meditation classes, which are taught by specialist teachers who have trained extensively in their individual disciplines.  We have two studios to choose from; Hot and Traditional and a huge variety of styles to suit everyone. Our classes have been divided into four main groups; flow, static, restorative and specialist to help describe the general theme of the classes: 

A class where poses 

run together to create a 

smooth and fluid 

practice.

flow

A class where postures

are held for longer to allow us to go deeper within ourselves.

static

specialist

Yoga practice for

specific age groups

or health issues.

Flow

Vinyasa Flow

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Movement and breath are synchronised to create a flowing practice. The asanas are linked together in a way that makes sense physically, creating a moving meditation, where the body becomes strong and flexible, while the mind becomes focused and calm. The pace of the flow can vary,  with each teacher bringing their own unique expertise, experience and creativity to the classes.

Hot Flow

Level: Open, 1, 2, 3

Studio: Hot

In this hot version of Vinyasa Flow practice, expect some vigorous movement, connecting each pose to the next using your breath. The pace and studio temperature (up to 38 degrees) will vary depending on the level. The practice will strengthen the upper body, improve flexibility and mental focus, with heat aiding joint lubrication and removal of toxins. Make sure you drink plenty of water!

Mindful Flow

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Traditional poses and sequences are rethought to incorporate ‘juicy’ movements that feel good within the body. Postures are felt from within, transitions from one to the next being just as important as the poses themselves. Mindful Flow is about moving in a way that feels good, with time and space given to exploring suggestions and alternatives and to get creative on the mat. Prepare to really tune in to how your body feels through mindful movement, awareness and breath.

Align & Flow

Level: Open
Studio: Hot/Traditional

Flowing sequences centred around the Anusara universal principles of alignment using body alignment, pranayama (breathwork) and meditation.

Forrest Yoga

Level: Open

Studio: Hot/Traditional

A strong practice that works to release tension and build greater awareness throughout the body through breath, core work and sequencing. With a strong focus on healing, you will learn to tailor poses that best work for you, whilst building strength, flexibility and integrity in your practice.

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Sun Power Yoga is a mix of Dynamic Hatha which promotes alignment, Sivananda Yoga for subtle mind and breath work, and Ashtanga Vinyasa for heat, flexibility and stamina. This is an inspiring and energising class,  which promotes calmness of mind and body.

Thai Yoga

A floor based class – postures are carried out slowly and gracefully, promoting health, vitality and wellbeing.

Studio: Traditional

Daoist Flow

Daoist Flow weaves the parallels of Vinyasa Flow and Qigong together. To cultivate life energy, the focus will be on intention and quality of movement, exploring natural movement patterns and traditional Vinyasa sequences. The Daoist element integrates Qigong forms, which are martial in practice, helping to strengthen and condition the body, whilst mindfully encouraging our life energy to come into balance, leaving us feeling calm and grounded.

Static

Hot Yoga (26/2)

Level: Open

Studio: Hot

The yoga postures taught are static and taught individually to build students understanding of correct alignment.

Pilates

Level: Open
Studio: Traditional

Pilates is known to improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.  Joseph Pilates, the man behind this popular method, based his work on three principles: breath, whole-body health and whole body commitment; with the whole body encompassing mind, body and spirit.

Hatha Yoga

Level: Open

Studio: Hot/Traditional

Hatha is a series of postures linked by the breath, to stretch and strengthen the body and build life-force energy (Prana). Classes encourage wellbeing, strength, tone and flexibility of mind and body.

Iyengar Yoga

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Characterised by great attention to detail and precise focus on body alignment. Benefits include strength, increased vitality, improved circulation, co-ordination and balance.

Yin Yang Yoga

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

This is a class that balances the traditional asana based yoga practise with the newly developed Yin practice, done usually in the second half of the class. Yang is the masculine principle; active, outward and upward moving, aimed at developing muscular strength and stamina. Yin is the feminine principle; passive and 

introspective. Yin yoga helps to release connective tissue, expanding flexibility and aiding healing while stimulating the nadis or meridians to loosen energetic blockages and increase energy flow.

Restorative

Restorative Yoga

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Restorative Yoga, the antidote to stress, allows us to tip the balance in favour of the parasympathetic 'quieting system'. With this, ever deepening states of relaxation ensue. Mild, gentle and prolonged stretching is supported with the appropriate use of props. The spine is moved in all different directions to unlock tension in the spine with a deep connection to breath, gravity and mental concentration.

Sound Meditation

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Immerse yourself in this unique session in which you will be guided through a meditative journey, tuning into your own unique natural rhythm of breath. This class is peaceful yet uplifting; rejuvenating and deeply nourishing on many levels.

Energy Healing

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

A meditation class with no physical practice which encourages the body to draw upon its natural healing ability by opening up the flow of energy, clearing emotional blockages and detoxifying itself. 

Yin Yoga

Level: Open

Studio: Traditional

Yin yoga increases mobility and flexibility in the body and ultimately leads to deeper relaxation and a better yang practice. Life requires balance and so does yoga. If you are only doing the “yang” styles of yoga (the active muscular forms), it is time to discover the “yin” yoga that works on the deep tissues and energy systems of the body. Suitable for all levels, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to dynamic yang yoga practises that emphasize internal heat and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. 

Specialist

Beginners Yoga

Level: Open

These classes will set you up for a great and rewarding practice and are open to men and women of all ages and fitness levels. The class moves at a slower pace and extra guidance is given.
