We’re confident that once you get into the swing of it you’re going to love it and be a little bit hooked!
What does the workshop involve?
Our Beginner’s Workshop is 90 minutes long and takes place in the heated studio.

This class is a series of specific postures designed to challenge and work the whole body, stretching, lengthening and strengthening specific muscles and joints to leave you feeling awesome!
Breath work is key to any yoga practice. Learn the breathing techniques (pranayama) that will get the heart pumping to send oxygenated blood around your body to all organs and muscles that you’ll be working during classes. Learn how to utilise breath to control heart rate, calm the mind and help you maximise the time in each posture.
Postures & Alignment
Learn a range of poses (asana) from our unique ‘Hot Yoga’ class including how to safely move in and out of poses, how to modify for injuries and how to adopt strong and safe alignment to engage the correct muscles and reduce the risk of injury. in a BFree class.
Language & Cues
Start to familiarise yourself with yoga lingo, names of poses and the various cues you will hear during class. Yoga language and cues are universal so you’ll be able to take this with you to any other yoga classes you attend.
Time to ask your teacher anything yoga or hot yoga related that might not have been covered and learn some useful hints and tips for how to get the most out of your classes and the best way to continue your practice.

Turning up the dial this week and feeling the heat of a regular hot class. We’ll recap the basics and explore further standing postures that will test your balance and your focus. We will also flow through some basic sun salutations and movements you may see in a BFree class.
Week 3 – Introduction to Sculpt
Time to have some fun with music! Firstly we will recap last week’s session and warm up with some sun salutations and then we’ll be picking up hand weights and incorporating them into our practice to give you a taste for our popular Sculpt class. We’ll have lots of fun today with time for water breaks and time to rest and ask questions. Not comfortable with weights? No problem! You’ll still get a great workout without them!
