Classes

The studio reopens for classes Monday 22nd June. We’ve got Yoga and Pilates to keep you fit and strong in both mind and body. We don’t believe in punishing or gruelling classes just for the sake of it, you can leave that at the gym. You will be challenged and stretched but in all the right ways. Classes to leave you feeling strong, calm and confident.

 

Pilates

Experience the Illuminate way of Mat Pilates. Using small props and body weight, we will tone, strengthen and lengthen the body with mindful, controlled movements. The perfect addition to Yoga classes or other workouts and by focusing on form and breath, it is a complete mind body workout. Suitable for all levels

Iyengar Yoga

Iyengar yoga emphasises precision, alignment and attention to the breath. You can expect detailed instructions from the teacher but also to be encouraged to work at your own capacity using props to support where needed. Suitable for all levels, Saturday is a longer class that is geared towards those with experience.

Vinyasa Flow

 A dynamic and creative practice that links poses and breath in a flowing sequence.  Focus on alignment and awareness of the breath empowering you to feel strong, balanced and energised. All levels are welcome

Beginners Yoga

This is a slow paced class so perfect for those new to Yoga wanting to learn the basics, who have injuries or have been practicing for a while and want to refine their postures. We will explore alignment and purpose – giving you the tools to confidently join any Yoga class on our schedule.

Yin Yoga

 Yin Yoga has a meditative approach with a series of slow, long holds and floor-based poses that stretch out the connective tissues and fascia in the body. It’s a quiet practice that will help recharge  your body, mind, and spirit and offers a chance to turn inward and nurture the calm, quiet centre that is in in all of us. Suitable for all levels

Mindfulness + Meditation

This class offers some guided meditation but opportunities for silence as well. Become more mindful, connected and relaxed.  Beginners to experienced meditators welcome

Community Class

Community Yoga is a new class offering a one hour free general yoga class for people who may otherwise not be able to afford the luxury of attending yoga classes. This is the Illuminate Yoga way of giving back to the community. Anyone is welcome at these classes, younger or older, all abilities, absolute beginners or those with more experience.

Prenatal/Postnatal

A blend of Pilates and Yoga with a pregnancy specific focus to stabilise the pelvis and lower back, build stamina and endurance, tone and strengthen the whole body as well as promote good posture and alignment. We believe in the fourth trimester so mothers of new babies are welcome to join this class too.
