Yoga and climbing are very synergistic. Climbing requires core strength, balance, breathing and focus and mental discipline – all skills that Yoga helps with tremendously, which is why so many climbers do Yoga.
Beginners and non-climbers are very welcome at all our classes. Just introduce yourself to the teacher and let them know it’s your first time.
Come early to reserve a spot as space is limited per class. Pay your day pass or swipe your membership card at the front desk.
First timers will need to complete our waiver.
Notify the instructor of injuries or medical conditions, if you are new or pregnant.
Classes are subject to change. Space is on a first come first serve basis.
A few Yoga mats are available in the studio but we advise you to bring your own or purchase an eco-friendly mat in our gear shop as rental mats are limited.
Each class will be slightly different to the next, depending on who is instructing, what music is played and what the instructor offers on the day. All classes suitable for all levels.

Qualification: 200hr YTT with Wellness Connection
What motivates me: Yoga has the ability to heal our physical, mental and emotional selves. My practice has given me the tools I need to move through the greatest challenges in life feeling supported and grounded. Similarly, it has opened my mind to fully experience the world’s incredible wonders. I am inspired to share with those around me, to empower them to develop both a personal practice of mindfulness, and a sense of playful curiosity within the framework of yoga.
My yoga style: Throughout my yoga journey I have practised ashtanga, vinyasa, budokon, kundalini, yin and meditation, and I aim to incorporate aspects from each of these styles into my classes, with a focus on mindful, intuitive movement. I try to create a playful, encouraging environment that allows students to release expectation and judgement, offering a safe space to be your most authentic self.Show more +
Qualification: 300hr YTT at ReUnion Yoga with Jim Harrington including Synergy teacher training; 50hr YTT Yin Teacher Training with Wellness Connection
What motivates me: The practice of yoga is not only physical, but also connects us with our emotional and mental well-being. Our practice on the mat flows over into our life off the mat, and guides us to finding balance in everyday life – we learn to understand when to be unyielding, and when to let go.
My yoga style: I’m in love with the idea of Sukha and Sthira: the dichotomy of strength and endurance versus ease and self-acceptance. My classes invite the practice of being fully present with all the sensations and experiences that occur in the body and mind. We flow through a sequence of asanas while remaining connected with the breath. My style supports you in letting go of perfection and embracing self-acceptance, both on and off the mat.Show more +

What motivates me: Yoga provides a vehicle to everything that represents well-being to me. Beyond the joy of being intensely physical, present, and balanced in the body, the philosophy and mindfulness feeds every other aspect of living. I take immense gratification in my duty to share with my students this information and offer a type of sanctuary that I still find in my own practice.
My yoga style: Simple answer: whatever works. I use principles learnt in traditional yoga practice (ashtanga and Iyengar) as well as Synergy and Pilates; my classical ballet background has also given me an eye for detail and movement quality. Above all: play.Show more +

What motivates me: Yoga has been my glue over the past twelve years, and its teachings have expanded my heart and mind to hold space with the utmost care and entrainment. I love the eight limbs of yoga that one can ‘climb’, and helping others to bring their own heartfelt spirituality into their daily fitness regimen, with a focus on strength training for climbing and other sports. I set strong intentions to draw students to mindful connection with the present through pranayama (breathwork) and meditation.
My yoga style: My Yoga for Climbers classes are largely vinyasa based; I also teach beginners’ and synergy yoga with strong self-affirmations and focus on the expansion of the body’s inner space, introspection and resilience.
