Our Classes and Services
Our yoga and wellbeing classes are accessible to people from all ages and walks of life. Our teachers are experienced in many different methodologies of guiding yoga and aim to make each class beneficial for your body, mind and nervous system. Yoga acknowledges the ever present union of the body and the mind, through breath and movement, presence and mindful attention. A calm centered experience of yourself is felt and the space to process life events and daily stressors on body and mind is accessed.
Stress is experienced in accordance with the adaptation energy and space we have available at the time. Giving yourself space on a regular basis to process life is highly valuable. At Align we really recognise the importance of providing this space for you.
As well as our regular classes we offer private group sessions according to your needs, whether this be on a regular basis or as an event offering to your group. Contact us to discuss your needs and options. Anything from sound relaxation & meditation or mindfulness to movement for back care for office workers can be arranged.

The “flow state” is a state you enter when you are absorbed and completely present in an activity. When we sync our body movements with the flow of our breath we can more easily access this mindful presence. These classes are fluid, active and move you in an intelligent sequence to open you up, build strength and bring a vibrant energy to your body. Balanced well with winding down towards the end to soften you in, release tension and have you sweetly and simply let go. The addition of FAR Infared heat brings further release to your body. Temp low to mid 30s. Must bring towels please.
