Hamish Warrior One

Power Vinyasa

This is an energising, strengthening and fun Power Vinyasa class. You will work through a dynamic range of postures in a rhythm of respiration.  The postures, breath work, meditative frame of mind and personal inquiry will take you where no other yoga class has before. This is Power Yoga in its most empowering and fun
expression.  This practice
will build core strength,
functional strength and mobility
through your whole body and
presence and peace in your
mind.

Hamish Twisting Triangle

Easy Vinyasa

Based on the Power All Levels class, this practice slows the pace, reduces the challenge by giving more modifications and gentler options and concentrates on foundational elements of the practice.

This class is a great starting point for those new to yoga and is a great option for those recovering from injury or seeking an energising but less demanding practice.  There is still the opportunity for more experienced practitioners to express themselves.

Relax and Restore

In this class we emphasise qualities of earth and water as we enter a meditative flow concentrated upon opening and restorative postures.

This slower, more yin-oriented class is a perfect complement to the energetic power of the vinyasa classes.

It is also ideal for sports people needing to realign and recover from strenuous training or competition, for sedentary workers seeking to re-establish their posture and for those who wish to relax and calm their minds and let go the weight of the world from their shoulders. 

This is profound yoga with a slow pace and soulful focus, plumbing the depths of body, mind and spirit.

Monkey Pose

Power Pilates

Power Pilates brings dynamic mat Pilates to Apollo Power Yoga coupled with cardio-vascular work to create a powerful, strengthening practice that is challenging and fun.  One of the key elements missing from some Pilates practices is back bending.  Power Pilates at Apollo Power Yoga will incorporate a section of the practice dedicated to strengthening and mobilising your back.  You will strengthen your core.  You will sweat.  You will build cardio-vascular fitness.  There will be music.  There will be fun.

A flowing yoga practice created by Cameron Shayne, founder of the Budokon® University.  This transition-based practice will challenge your strength, balance and coordination and will shake up your conception of what “yoga” is.

By invitation only. 

Stacked Rocks Balancing

Power Chill

Power Chill is a Power Restore class with gentle, relaxing music playing throughout class.

In this slow-moving, stretch-based class, relax away all tension of body and mind.  restore and renew yourself from the challenges of daily life, from the rigours of sports or training or as a complement to our power vinyasa classes.

Friday night bliss.

Private Instruction

Hamish Thunderbolt

Apollo Power Yoga’s studios may be booked for private lessons or for group bookings for sports teams or clubs, team building work groups or anyone else wishing to have exclusive use of the studio.  If you are new to hot yoga or want to learn the basics of power vinyasa yoga before committing to a public class, a private lesson is a great way to make progress fast.

Private lessons are a great way to make quick progress in your practice, getting past plateaus in your practice and taking more fun and enjoyment from yoga.  We can even do “In-class Privates” where you get a teacher standing by your mat giving assists for each pose throughout a class taught by another teacher.  You practice a regular class but have the undivided attention of a teacher trained in assisting working with you the whole class.

Yoga is a great team building exercise for groups as it is accessible to most people and with the support of a group it is easy to have fun and build strong bonds and connections between team members.

Private sessions for sports teams or clubs can be tailored to the special needs of the group, whether it be off-season strengthening or mid-season restorative work.  Enormous benefits are to be had from using yoga as a conditioning practice or as a means of re-aligning after hard training or competition.

All private lessons are with either Hamish or Margo. Rates for private lessons and private bookings are POA. Contact us for more information.
