In this class variations of the asanas (postures) of mat yoga are practiced with the help of the hammock. Practising various postures with the help of the suspension of the yoga swing helps strengthen the muscles. Flexibility is also gained in a relaxing way while helping to relieve tension in the spine and cervical area when maintaining inverted postures for a few minutes. It helps disconnect the mind and relieves stress. We begin each class with 5 minutes of meditation and breathing before commencing with the warm up. Although some postures can seem rather acrobatic, the strength to perform them is gained throughout the sessions. Each class ends with a 5 minute relaxation in the hammocks. There are four hammocks, therefore a maximum of 4 people per class. Each hammock is cleaned with an antibacterial spray and then ironed with vapour at 90 degrees. The class lasts 1 hour. This class is also taught by Marghertia. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).
Get fit by creating beautiful shapes and spins. By using all of the muscles in the body, Pole Dance is a very complete exercise that tones and strengthens. It is not necessary to have experience or specific strength to learn how to do Pole Dance. Strength and flexibility are worked during each session. We normally start with a 15 minute cardio and fitness warm up. The main portion of the class is dedicated to learning spins and figures on the pole. Finally, we finish 35 minutes of exercise on the pole by doing “combos” (or combining what we learnt during the class with linking moves). The class finishes with 10 minutes of stretching and cool down at the end. There are 2 poles and a maximum of 4 people are allowed in one session (2 people per pole). This class is also taught by Marghertia. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. No drop-ins allowed. You must book your place in advance).
In this one hour acrobatic class you will learn how to combine movements on the lyra, a circular steel ring (similar to a hula hoop) that’s suspended in the air by rope attached to the ceiling. A similar class to Pole Dance, here you will start with a 15 minute warm up, to condition and strengthen the muscles needed for the class. 35 minutes on the lyra are spent learning different techniques and poses, and the class terminates with a 10 minute stretch and cool down in the end. Two lyras are hung from the ceiling, there fore there is limited space in the class. A total of 6 students are permitted to the class (2 people per lyra hoop). These classes are taught by Margheritaand Chely. (Please note: space and availability may vary due to COVID19 regulations. This class is only available to residents).
