All our teachers bring their own unique teaching styles, life experience, gifts of wisdom and sequencing patterns to each class. These descriptions are a guideline, however as you experience the classes on offer at Bloom Holistic Collective, we urge you to attend classes from as many teachers as you can, to feel into their differences and the beauty each offer.
Warm Slow Flow
Warm Slow Flow yoga is the sweet-spot between Hot Vinyasa and Yin. Expect a meditative flow that encourages you to slow down, tune in and find a different kind of energy. In the morning classes you can expect a slightly stronger practise, to leave you feeling grounded for the day ahead, whereas the evening classes are slower. Experience the power of mindful movement and breath. Suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners, slow flow yoga will soothe, strengthen, and stretch, and leave you feeling totally at peace. *Warm classes are heated to approx 27 degrees celcius, please bring a waterbottle.
Vinyin-ers are grinners! Let the yin balance the yang as this class combines the flow of vinyasa followed by the deep, satisfying stretch of yin. Half an hour of each ensures you leave this class with a sense of balance, your body both strengthened and stretched, your mind cleansed and calm. The collaboration and contrast of the styles in a vinyin class will open the body and allow for a deeper practice - seriously, you’ll be showing off those pearly whites by the end of it!
Yin day is treat day - for your body and mind. Feel those stress levels go down as your flexibility goes up! In yin yoga we hold the poses for longer to allow the body to release into the posture and, just as importantly, to let the mind settle. In a yin class, props are your best friend, and we have a range of bolsters, blocks and straps to make each pose work for you. Our Warm Yin Class is very slightly heated with Infrared Heating to create a super relaxing environment that encourages a deeper and nourishing stretch to the connective tissues.
Hatha/Hot Hatha/Warm Hatha
Let your inhales and exhales guide your practice as you align and unwind with the beautiful balance of Hatha yoga. Hatha is a traditional, well-rounded style of yoga, so you’ll start the class with breathing and meditation and move into stretching, strengthening and standing postures. There might be a couple of balances and an inversion thrown in for good measure - here at Bloom Holistic we always try and keep you on your (yogi) toes! *Hot Hatha is heated to approx 35 degrees celcius, please bring a water bottle and towel.
Finding peace and calm can be a real challenge, especially when you're trying to balance work, social obligations, family, and a personal life. Guided meditation is a wonderful tool to help you cope with the chaos of everyday life. This class will give you space to relax both your mind and body and help you deepen your meditation practice. Expect mantras, chanting and flow visualisations.
Hot Vinyasa/Warm Vinyasa
Connect your breath and body. Still your mind through movement. Salute the sun as you stretch and strengthen. Vinyasa is a flowing style of yoga that uses the breath to guide each transition. Each and every vinyasa class is unique, with a new creative sequence to practice every time you visit. Vinyasa will strengthen and tone your body, improve flexibility, promote mind and body connectedness, and test your balance. Hot Vinyasa is heated to approx. 35 degrees, Warm Vinyasa to 28 degrees. It will cleanse impurities from the body, detoxify your cells and deepen your practice.
Warm, Foundation Yoga
Combining some of the many different styles of yoga with the warmth of our Infrared heaters, Warm Foundation Yoga will focus on alignment whilst taking you on a journey of discovery through asana, pranayama and meditation. If you are a yogic gourmand, this veritable smorgasbord of yogic delights will inspire you to deepen your personal practice. Let’s get it Ooooooohhhhhmmmmmmm!
Power Yoga is a strong physical practice which encourages students to move out of their head and connect more deeply to their physical body. A sense of flow is present as we work on stamina, strength, flexibility and endurance. We create fire (heat) in the body, using intensity, to challenge the boundaries of what we believe to be possible, peeling back the external layers of the self, welcoming in self belief, liberating your being.
