DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOT POWER AND BIKRAM
Bickram is a style of yoga that is conducted in a heated room set at 42 degrees. It is a set sequence of poses that does not change. Hot Power is performed in a room with a temperature of 32 degrees, there are no set sequences, so each class is always going to be different enabling the individual instructor to tailor the class to the desires of the clients and put their own personal flair into the practice.
Is an deep-muscle floor based exercise and stretches regimen that is mat centred or with the use of specialized apparatus that aims to improve flexibility and stability by strengthening the muscles and especially the torso-stabilizing muscles of the abdomen and lower back. Pilates is long popular with dancers and recently has attracted a huge surge of athletes, models, actors and other health / body-conscious folks. Classes are offered MON, WEDS and FRI and with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance.
Stretch and Flow
This vinyasa style class focuses on flowing movement with breath, with sequences that strengthen, lengthen and relax our muscles. This is a great class if you want to slow down a bit, are a beginner, or just want a little bit longer savasanah!
Nothing will be strong with a weak foundation, and the same applies to your yoga practice. Beginners will gain understanding on yoga basics and how to correctly perform poses to ensure a strong ongoing practice.
And because learning never ends experienced yogis benefit from ‘checking in’ with our instructors, maximising their yoga practice.
Yin / Restorative / Relax
We all need to balance body, mind and rejuvenate. Yin / Restorative / Relax practises floor based poses, held for longer periods with the aid of props. Focusing on breath as we hold these poses, activates our parasympathetic nervous system to bring balance to our bodies, mind and spirit.
This class strengthens our breath control, relaxes our minds and is a must in today’s overstimulating environment.

Congratulations Mum! Practising yoga following the birth of your baby can help to create hormonal and emotional balances in your body. By practising poses that have been modified specially for the recovering mum it helps to strengthen your pelvic floor, abdomen, legs, back as well as releasing tension in your neck, shoulders and arms.
This class is suitable for beginners and for women who are 6 weeks postpartum for a vaginal birth and 8 weeks postpartum for a Cesarean section. Women are encouraged to attend to their baby as often as they need to, however this is not a mums and bubs class. This is a class focusing primarily on mum’s health and happiness.

Vitality – Fusion
As the name suggest this is an integrated class of all of the forms of yoga that we teach at Vitality including aspects of Pilates. Hence the class commences with relaxation and restorative, some foundations, then moving into a series of power poses and Pilates exercises and progressing into stretch and flow, finishing of with restorative and relaxation.
This class is aimed at providing a balanced program for beginners through to established YOGIS, incorporating the essence of what we are all about here at Vitality Yoga. As always the skeleton of the class is structured with flexibility for the teacher to make it their own. We envisage that this class will become a “brand” and provide the platform for the expansion of our practice beyond our morning and evening classes into the 9:30am slot and eventually beyond our studio.
