Invigorate & Rejuvenate
Our signature 'Glide Flow' class will leave you feeling invigorated and rejuvenated. Designed as an all levels class, it is tailored to meet the needs of beginners (plenty of modifications to keep you safe) and a strong flowing sequence to challenge more advanced yoga students. Glide Flow is a strong and fluid yoga class, perfect for all abilities. Connecting breath to movement has a calming effect on the mind so that you will leave class feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Glide Flow incorporates more challenging poses but as always modifications are offered to suit beginners. Benefits include building strength, increased flexibility, a calming of the nervous system and greater self-awareness.
Glide Slow Flow
Mindful & Meditative
Train your mind with Glide Slow Flow, a mindful flowing yoga sequence that enables you to slow down, develop focus and be in the present moment. So much of our time is spent thinking about the past or future. A mindful Glide Slow Flow class will keep your attention anchored to your breath and present moment awareness. Kriya yoga techniques and pranayama (breathing exercises) are a key component of these classes. Glide Slow Flow Yoga is a slower, more mindful yoga practice with some longer and deeper holds allowing you to strengthen and stretch the body and release tension and stress. A deeply satisfying practice, benefits include increased ability to focus, improved memory and reduced stress levels.
Glide Stretch & Restore
Stretch & Release
A class that focuses on stretching and releasing the tightest parts of the body - hamstrings, quads, hips, backs and shoulders.
Stretch & Restore is perfect for althetes (cyclists, runners, footballers) and for anyone who spends a lot of time sitting in front of a computer.
Benefits include an increase in flexibility and range of movement through the joints of the body, a release of tension, reduced stress levels and a stilling of the mind. Class concludes with one or two restorative poses to take you into a deep state of relaxation and rejuvenation.
Glide Restorative Flow
Rest & Restore
Taking time out to relax and renew is essential to living well. Learn how to switch off your stress response and turn on the relaxation response with a restorative yoga class designed to calm the nervous system and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with a deep sense of calm.
Class begins with a gentle flowing sequence to draw your awareness inward and ends with some longer holds in supported restorative poses.
A weekly restorative class is highly recommended to help you experience greater peace, calm and joy in everyday living. If you have never tried restorative yoga before, you are in for a treat. Glide Restore is like having a massage or facial, you will literally glide or float out of this class. No previous yoga experience is required.
Restorative yoga is especially beneficial for anyone with anxiety, chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, stress related illnesses, thyroid problems and insomnia.
Yoga For Kids
Fun for Kids
The benefits of yoga for kids of all ages are limitless. Through imagination, story, sound, games and fun, the health benefits of yoga can be effectively experienced by any child. Glide Yoga’s classes for children are taught by Simone Van Vugt, who has completed a Yoga Australia accredited children’s yoga course. In these yoga classes, children learn the skills of mind-body awareness, inspiring self-confidence, focus, mindful reflection, self-regulation, creativity and self-efficacy while learning gratitude and optimism, all in a fun and safe environment. This is on top of the physical health benefits yoga provides children such as strength, balance and flexibility.
Glide Yoga classes for kids yoga are a holistic experience. Postures and movements that work specific areas of the body, breathing practices, relaxation and mindfulness have been proven to help children with their development and progression in life. Yoga can show and teach kids (and adults!) in a super fun way that anything is possible.
