Hot, Aerial & Restorative Yoga
Having completed her 200-hour training in Goa, Steph utilises all the traditional methods with a fresh & modern twist. She came to Yoga to help with her half-marathon training, when noticing her hips taking a beating! As the years passed, the running fell to the wayside, her love of Yoga grew & the pain she used to get stopped.
Beginners, Hatha Flow, Slow Flow and Sound Relaxation.
Yoga has always been part of my life. I took my mat & practice to many countries: Australia, Malaysia, Dubai, Turkey & more. Traveling hugely enriched my teaching.
In my classes, you will warm up, connect to the breath and practice smooth & accessible sequences. I teach Beginners on Tuesdays & All Levels on Saturdays.
In my Friday relaxation class, I will take you on a journey through the senses with music, sound vibrations and aromatherapy for an utterly special experience. See you on the mat!
Vinyasa & Meditation
Jess started yoga 7 years ago, it kept her grounded & centered whilst traveling the world. Jess qualified in India in 2019, she has been teaching consistently ever since. She is eager to share her passion, love & lifestyle with you.
Jess' style is authentic & non-judgemental, and uses the breath to move in & out of poses. She invites a playful element to the class, hoping that you'll leave the mat inspired, nourished & empowered to let your natural beauty shine through.
Beverley has worked in the fitness industry for 15 years as a personal trainer, and fitness instructor for 8 years. Decided to add holistic exercise, which started with PureStretch and led me two years ago to Pilates. I really embrace Pilates now, loving the control and mindful way of moving the body.

Benefits of Infrared Hot Yoga
The Journal of the American College of Cardiology and the Mayo Clinic report that infrared therapy improves the functioning of blood vessels, reduces cholesterol, increases circulation and lowers blood sugar levels. Some of the additional health benefits of infrared hot yoga include:
Improved Immune System FunctionInfrared rays are known to boost the immune system by increasing the number of white blood cells and T cells. This improved immune system function promotes healing throughout your body, reduces muscle tension, soreness and muscle spasms. Raising your body temperature also creates a sort of artificial fever, which is also a benefit to your immune system.
A Multitude of Skin BenefitsSkin problems can be eliminated with hot yoga due to the ability of hot yoga to increase blood flow and oxygenation to your skin. The improved circulation is due to the expansion of your capillaries. Infrared energy is also shown to Improve collagen production and skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines, reduce or prevent wrinkles, and minimize acne scars.
May Help Detoxify Your BodyInfrared yoga can help detoxify your body by increasing how much you sweat during your workout, potentially clearing heavy metals, toxins, and carcinogens from your body. Detoxification could be beneficial to those living with chronic fatigue or skin disorders. Infrared hot yoga also amplifies the amount of fat you will eliminate with exercise and eliminates retained fluids.
Accelerates Your Weight Loss EffortsInfrared boosts the enzymatic activity in your digestive tract and boosts your metabolism. Just one hour of infrared hot yoga can burn up to 900 calories, break down trapped fat, cellulite, and cellular waste. One thirty minute infrared hot yoga session is equivalent to sweating the distance of a two to three-mile run.
Reduces Pain and InflammationThe infrared light and heat penetrate deeply to soothe pain, inflammation, and ease muscle soreness. Infrared heat penetrates your body, improving your circulation, enhancing oxygenation and relaxing your muscles. This has proven beneficial for yoga enthusiasts who rely on their discipline to help alleviate the symptoms of chronic pain conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
Increases Muscle Flexibility and Accelerates Strength BuildingYour body moves better when your muscles are warm. You will find your muscles more limber; you may also find that you require less time to warm up. While your muscles will move easier, more freely with infrared hot yoga, it is still recommended not to push yourself too hard, at least not at first. Your tendons and ligaments are not as vascular as your muscles. While your muscles may stretch more deeply, your tendons and ligaments may not be ready; you need to gauge your efforts mindfully to reduce your risk of a pull or strain.
