Mellow Vinyasa YogaA lil more 'mellow' - cos it's Saturday morning...
Vinyasa Yoga (aka Flow Yoga or Power Yoga); can be fast-paced or more mellow; emphasis is on fitness & strength but also very much on the breath. Each movement is synchronised with the breath. Most Vinyasa classes will feature Sun Salutations. Vinyasa classes link or connect asanas (poses) together to make a sequence.
Tuesday Morning Wake-Up HathaEarly morning class in the GAA on Tuesdays at 7:15am. Hatha Yoga is like the roots of the tree from which grows all modern physical Yoga. On a class level, Hatha Yoga typically means a general and/or more all-levels class, with or without 'flow' aspect. It's a great starting point for developing & maintaining a Yoga practice. Hatha is more accessible & 'low-key' & yet still provides all those key flexibility, calming & strengthening benefits.
Vinyasa Yoga Group ClassVinyasa Yoga (aka Flow Yoga); can be fast-paced or more mellow; emphasis is on fitness & strength but also very much on the breath. Each movement is synchronised with the breath. Most Vinyasa classes will feature Sun Salutations. Vinyasa classes link or connect asanas (poses) together to make a sequence. These can change from week to week, class to class, teacher to teacher; the variety's one of the many enjoyable aspects of flow classes. Take the class at your own pace & enjoy.

Yoga is unique in its long-term ability to help strengthen & tone our bodies, improve our flexibility & enhance our sense of well being. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a lifelong practice for you.
Gentle YogaA Hatha Yoga-based class; very gentle in its approach & slower-paced than some other forms of Yoga. A class perfect for those looking for a more relaxed & easy-going practice; also suitable for those recovering from and/or managing chronic illness & injuries.
Gentle Yoga, because of its innate gentle nature, is perfect for those who cannot or very simply, do not want to meet the demands of a more physically active class.
