  • Small class size. Limit 12 people.
  • Location: Zen Zone our peaceful, mind body sancuary that allows members to relax, stretch, meditate or just chill out in throughout the day.
  • The room is slightly heated and carpeted for your comfort.
  • You will have access to more equipment to make the most of the postures within the class. E.g. bolsters, blocks, straps, blankets, meditation pillows. 

What to expect

The majority of the poses in Yoga Restore will be floor based. The instructor will help you get into each posture using various props to increase relaxation and target the connective tissue withint the body. You can expect to hold poses for anywhere between 3-5mins. During this time you're instructor will encourage you to focus on regulating the breath and calm the mind.
