Akasha Classic is based on Hatha, the classic style that is the foundation of all yoga. Hatha means sun and moon and refers to an alignment-based practice of moving into the pose slowly and holding poses for longer periods of time. Akasha Classic is suitable for all regardless of age or experience. It’s both a great introduction to yoga and a continual challenge that not only helps you get and stay in shape but also develops balance, flexibility and coordination. It renews, invigorates, and heals the body by stretching and toning muscles.
Akasha Flow – a traditional Vinyasa Flow yoga class. Vinyasa means “movement with breath” using breath to flow from one position into the next. The class is a flow of yoga poses and breath placed in specific dynamic sequences. Everyone is welcome to experience a full body workout that will strengthen and stretch your entire body, and leave you feeling revitalised – both physically and mentally.
Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic form of yoga which links movement to breath. The practice is a powerful series of postures that is practised the same way each session. Ashtanga builds great strength, flexibility and suppleness, and a deep sense of physical and mental wellbeing.

Akasha Hot Etiquette
Please arrive on time to class. As this is a specific sequence, in a heated environment we cannot allow late-comers to class. If you are new to Akasha, please arrive 10 minutes early for your first session to allow extra time for registration.
Arrive well hydrated. Hydration is essential to replace fluids lost through sweating. Bring a water bottle to class and drink when needed. Avoid drinking diuretics such as tea, coffee and alcohol before class.
Re-hydrate after class.
It is not recommended to eat anything heavy less than 2 hours before class. Blood will be directed away from the muscles to the stomach for digestion.
Sweating is to be expected during class so you will be required to have a towel in class to protect our mats and keep them hygienic for everyone. You can bring your own or rent mat towels from reception for £1 (free if it is your first time).If you begin to feel ill, dizzy or faint try to drink water, sit and rest until the feeling passes. If you feel you have to leave the room, please do so between postures and wait to return to the class between postures.
