Are your Yoga classses different than most other studios?
In some ways yes as we bring a broad range of experience and background in other movement disciplines that many other studios do not. We have been trained in Budokon and the Yogic Arts in addition to traditional Yoga training with accreditations by the Yoga Alliance and British Wheel of Yoga.
We believe we are the only studio in the World trained in Infinite Tai Chi, Qi Gong. Meditation alongside Hatha Yoga, Budokon, and the Yogic Arts. This means we can provide vinyasa flow sequences incorporating several movement disciplines with the ultimate goal of making you healthier and happier.

What type of Yoga do you teach ?
We teach Vinyasa flow and static Hatha although the 2 are really linked in that a Vinyasa flow is a series of Hatha yoga asanas connected to create a flowing sequence. The Vinyasa sequences have been created to alleviate a specific pain point or improve a certain area of the body.
Can i attend classes if i have no experience at all?
Everyone is an absolute beginner with the form of tai chi that I teach. It is called Infinite Tai Chi developed by a gentleman called Jason Chan. He describes the practice as “ A wholesome discipline for perfect harmony in life, wherein lies all of our joy, happiness, health, abundance, compassion, and love.” Doesn’t that sound amazing?
A note on the class structure and what to expect.
In terms of the class structure, we start with a light warm-up which could either be standing or moving between different postures ( yoga asanas ) before moving onto a single or double chi kung sequence. Chi Kung ( Qi Gong ) is generally a standing practice to balance and revitalize the mind and harnessing both our internal and outer strength. We may also include general flexibility and strengthening exercises from Yoga to ground ourselves before moving onto the Infinite Tai Chi form ( 5 stages ) which I like to think of as a moving meditation that touches all of the four elements, water, fire, earth, and air. We start with working on the first stage and eventually work up to the 5 stages which is approx 25 minutes long when completed at normal speed.
At the end of the class we will close with a short meditation.

What should i wear to class?
You'll need some loose comfortable clothes, plain subdued colours if possible. All our classes are done barefooted.
I have tried lots of fitness classes before. Does this really work?
