Restorative stretch is a gentle form of exercise that relaxes and lengthens the body while calming and quietening the mind. By practicing restorative stretch, you can learn how to let go and turn off, be more aware, relax, heal yourself, and regenerate your energy. As a result, you will improve your body awareness, flexibility, mobility, mood, and overall movement quality. Currently, we offer 4 classes that are 45 minutes in duration and include a range of static stretching, dynamic stretching, and self-massage (e.g. spikey balls and foam rollers). These classes are perfect for anyone who is new to stretching, curios to learn, stressed and overwhelmed, recovering from injury, and/or resting with fatigue. See TIMETABLE...
Meditation is an age-old practice of calming, centering, and stabilising the mind. The benefits of meditation include stress relief, relaxation, emotional harmony, sharper awareness, greater concentration, reduced physical tension, and higher self-regulation. By practicing meditation, you can learn to think better, sleep better, function better, move better, and, most importantly, feel better! Currently, we offer 3 classes that are 45 minutes in duration. Each class includes a brief introduction, guided relaxation, silent sit (10-15 minutes), and a short closing discussion. These classes are introductory in nature and account for all sitting styles, so no prior experience or hyper-mobility is necessary - just rock up, unwind, turn-off, and let us guide you to a world of peace, presence, and vitality!

Monkey GymTM is a modern take on old technology - we use roman rings, ropes, kettle bells, rubber bands, ladder bars, benches etc. to challenge and strengthen the body's core and limbs. The benefits of Monkey GymTM include enhanced coordination, flexibility, mobility, strength, and posture. In Monkey GymTM, the class numbers are small, so each participant receives detailed attention and feedback when needed most. All of the Monkey GymTM exercises are whole-body in nature and are structured in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Currently, we offer 2 classes that are 45 minutes in duration. These classes are open to all genders, ages, and skill levels. See TIMETABLE...
