If you are new to Yoga Tree Studios a great place to start is with our introductory offer which will give you the opportunity to try out 4 classes to find a style and teacher to suit your needs. Our goal is to make sure you feel safe and comfortable on your mat.

For our heated classes we have a far infared heating system installed, this type of heat is very theraputic and healing on the body.

As a guide all of our open level classes are beginner friendly, but please read the class descriptions carefully as some class styles are a more strenuous practice than others and even though they are suitable for newbies to yoga they require a basic level of fitness.

Level 1 classes are for students who have a basic understanding of some yoga postures and have attended classes regularly.

Level 2 classes are for students that have been practicing that particular style of yoga for a minimum of 6 months.

Our online booking system allows you to book your classes 14 days in advance, please note our schedule is subject to change and may vary slightly from week to week.

Please contact us if you need advise about finding the right class for you.

Build Your Practice   – Open level

 If you are new to yoga or maybe have been out of practice for a while and need to refine your skills this class will be the perfect session for you.

The class starts with meditation and calming breath work before moving on to warm-up postures followed by standing and seated asanas (postures) finishing the class with a relaxing savasana (corpse pose). In this class, you’ll explore the technical aspects of the postures and the effects internally.

Creative Hatha – Open level

Creative Hatha is so much more than just a physical class, in this session you will be guided into the deeper world of Yoga, its philosophy and techniques to support you in creating your very own personal practice.  As with traditional Hatha, this class brings together breath and movement but calls on students to investigate the integrity of their yoga postures though exploring alignment, actively engaging key muscles and tapping into body awareness. The primary goal of this class is to help you achieve internal focus by learning how to utilise the breath and muscle control as a way of attaining a more meditative state.

This class is a combination of vinyasa and yin styles of practice. A blend of active and passive postures; the first portion of the class is a breath-centered vinyasa practice which includes standing postures, to integrate breath, movement, and awareness, aimed at slowing down the mind, body, and breath. Followed with the passive long holds of yin to target joints, connective tissues, and fascia. Yin poses are floor-based and supported with props to create as little effort while holding for 2-5 minutes. This style of practice is designed to take you from frazzled to flat out in 75 minutes and we all need a little of that in our lives.

Restorative yoga is intended to take the mindfulness that is found in all disciplines of yoga to the next level.  It’s still and slow, and it’s as much (or more) about the mind as it is the body. You’ll learn asanas (postures) that you can adapt and practice at home at times when you could do with a bit of ‘Ahhh’ you know that sound when you sit on the sofa after an arduous day, this class is designed to give you that feeling and also nourish you at that same time.

Rise & Shine Flow – Level 1

Wake up the body and mind for the day ahead as you flow from posture to posture using the breath as your guide. You’ll leave the class with a calm mind feeling energised for the day ahead.
