Our Classes

Kyo Yoga teachers are trained in a variety of styles and lineages. Our yoga classes are all Hatha based practices – but vary in being more or less dynamic, slightly gentler or stronger.

Below is a description of the classes ranging from gentle to more challenging. We encourage students to try a class to see how it feels for them always working with adherence to ahmisa or ‘doing no harm’ to body or mind.

Beginners Course – For ultimate Beginners. An 8 week introduction to yoga. Learn basic postures, breath awareness and relaxation tools. (Beginner/Basic)

Basics –  For those with limited yoga experience who can do a little more… or anyone who prefers a more moderate practice. This practice builds on basic postures with respect to developing further breath and body awareness. If you have done a Beginners Course this class is a great next step. (Beginner/Basic)

Flow and Restore – A slower paced practice that subtly strengthens the body and calms the mind. Both moving sequences and static postures are explored. Suitable for those with limited yoga experience. (Basic/Intermediate)
