We come to yoga for many reasons, and at Bodyscape Yoga, we welcome all levels of students. No matter your experience, we encourage everyone to try all our class styles and be curious so that you can maximise the benefits of your practice in this unending study of joy!
We honor our teachers and their individuality so we like them to be themselves and teach what they are truly passionate about. You might notice your favourite teacher, teaching only selected class styles because of this.
To help you decide which classes might be best for you, we’ve ordered our classes in order of strongest to lightest. So just like everything else, it’s a great idea to work your way up! Otherwise, give us a call and we’d be happy to chat to you.

The character of each class is unique to individual teachers, however variations will always be offered so you can still practice at your own level.

Classes are held at a moderate pace with poses linked together for a continuous flow.Ideal for
Those wanting to be energised and nourished! Some experience helpful, however beginners are welcome too.
In our fast paced, modern life, yoga can become more of a physical workout than an internal exploration.

Enjoy this one. A change in pace.Ideal for
Complete beginners or students who want to slow down their flow.
Various stretching techniques are involved including active isolation and partner-assist exercises.

We live better through strength. Pushing, pulling, squatting, lunging and everything functional. In this pilates-inspired conditioning class, we use body weight exercises only, and the addition of tennis balls and spikey balls for those sticky knots through myofascial release, as well as resistant bands to increase mobility and strength. Simple in choreography but challenging for endurance and strength. The perfect compliment to your fitness sessions and training routine.
Complete beginners or even the active person who craves for practicality and is inspired by challenge.

Tight bodies, chronic pain sufferers, athletes, effective recovery and injury prevention.
