YOGA – Core

If you are looking to build core strength, sweat and detox…and practice yoga postures – this class is for you! We’ll explore postures that strengthen the core, test upper body strength and make the thighs burn.  This class is suitable for Yoga beginners, however it does require a basic level of fitness.  Whilst my approach embodies all that is Yoga and will include breathing instruction – this class is designed for increasing strength and will focus mainly on yoga postures.


YOGA – Hatha Flow

An hour’s long exploration of Yoga postures with a little bit of relaxation and breath work.  Open level classes with direction given to the total beginner through to the more advanced practitioner.  I teach a strong emphasis on breath, surrender and holding postures in order to find stillness.  This class is ideal for anyone looking to build strength and flexibility through a gentle approach – whilst experiencing deep relaxation, a sense of going inwards and the odd piece of yoga philosophy along the way.


Cardiac Rehab Phase IV

Therastrong, heart-strong cardiac rehabilitation phase 4 programme is designed to support your recovery.  A specifically designed circuit class is aimed to manage your heart condition and help prevent further heart problems.



Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing.



A high intensity group work out targeting your whole body, great for weight loss and sports specific training burning around 1000 calories in 45 minutes.



A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility.



In a Circuits class, the studio is set up with various exercise stations, you'll move around each station and workout different muscle groups. You'll work hard and test both your cardio and strength for an all-round challenge.

Everyone has different goals, from losing weight to toning to building muscle. We offer three categories of fitness classes, each designed with a specific result in mind. Look out for the icons on our classes to see which ones are best for you.



Our CORE classes focus on flexibility, balance and core strength. Align your body and mind by working your muscles like never before.



Our BUILD classes focus on strengthening, toning and conditioning, up your game and push on to a leaner, meaner, fitter you.



Our HIIT classes are sweat-soaking. lung-bursting and fun-filled. Fire up your cardio workout and leave hungry for more.
