Our yoga and pilates class philosophy
Whether you’re interested in yoga or pilates for physical fitness, psychological fitness (or both!) our online and North Swindon yoga and pilates classes could be just what you’re looking for.
From a physical fitness perspective, yoga and pilates can help you improve your strength, flexibility and alignment. This is a must for any fitness training plan. From a mind-fitness perspective, yoga with its focus on movement with the breath can particularly help you work through daily stressors and emotions, improving your mental focus. Pilates also has a mind-body element to it as the core-focused exercises are also carried out in line with the breath. Breath control is a useful tool for reducing stress so this makes both yoga and pilates great outlets for managing stress and coping with modern-day life.
Our yoga classes contain elements of the hatha, vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga disciplines (depending on the class) and our Pilates classes are based on the Michael King method with a fun, functional fitness twist! We also encourage a culture of non-judgement and zero ego in our classes. While challenging yourself is fantastic, everyone is on their own personal fitness journey. There’s nothing worse than walking into a stuffy studio and feeling like you’re being compared to everyone else, so you won’t find any of this in our classes, in person or online. If you’re a beginner, it’s also no problem as our classes are all mixed level. This means lots of options are offered throughout the class so you can work within your limitations, do what you can and make the class your own.
Music is also a big part of our classes; it’s a fantastic motivator, lifting you up when you’re down, speaking to you when you’re in need of answers and being with you when you just need to feel. We spend a lot of time curating the perfect playlists to share with you in class. Whether it’s a Pilates class with a party vibe or a Yoga class with a chilled vibe, you’ll hear lots of different styles of music to keep you inspired in class.

How much are your classes?

In-person yoga and pilates classes
Our North Swindon yoga and pilates classes are £9 per person. Payment can be made when booking your space.
Note: Due to COVID-19 we’re not running any in-person classes for the foreseeable future.
What’s the difference between a ‘live’ and ‘on demand’ online class?
Our livestream yoga and pilates classes run online through Zoom. With all the same benefits of an in-person class (and the occasional visit from a cat!) our Zoom yoga and Zoom pilates classes run to a fixed timetable each week. You’ll have live interaction with your instructor throughout, including more personalised verbal cues if you enable your camera. Cameras are optional if you’re feeling a bit shy though! You can also ask questions after class so if you have a burning question about a pose or exercise or simply want to have a quick chat, your instructor will be on hand to help.
Our On Demand Studio works like renting a movie. Simply book your class when you want to do it and the class will remain available for 24 hours from purchase. Our On Demand Studio online yoga and pilates classes are pre-recorded classes which have a similar feel to our live classes but without personalised interaction from your instructor. This could be a more convenient option if a live class isn’t on at a time you want to do it or you would like to add additional sessions into your week to complement your existing classes.
What style of yoga and pilates do you teach and what’s the difference?
We’re definitely not purists and believe in teaching an inspiring combination of styles to bring you an uplifting and supportive class that will help you feel amazing in both mind and body. The following descriptions might help you decide which class you’d most like to attend.

- What’s your Yoga Stretch class like?
- What’s your Pilates Fit class like?
- What are your Yoga HIIT and Yoga Shred-inspired classes like?
- What other classes do you offer?
What’s your Yoga Flow class like?
Yoga Flow is a fitness-focused yoga class that’s suitable for all levels including beginners. Inspired by the energetic hatha and vinyasa yoga styles, this is a great all-round yoga class for improving strength, flexibility and mental focus. Each month will have a different focus so you’ll have time to get to grips with the poses. Whether you’re wanting a class to strengthen and stretch your muscles or you’re in need of some mindful movement to end a stressful day, our Yoga Flow class has something for everyone.
What’s your Hypno Yoga class like?
Hypno Yoga is a tranquil and relaxing yoga class that’s great for mental health and physical flexibility alike. Hypno Yoga offers a mix of seated and laying yoga poses to gently stretch you out and release the stress of your week, physically and mentally. We often hold stress in our muscles and connective tissues as well as our minds so this class will help you work it all out. Some poses will be held for a few breaths (hatha yoga style) while others will be held for minutes at a time for flexibility (yin yoga style) and using pillows and blankets for support (restorative yoga style). It’s suitable for everyone, including pregnant and postnatal ladies. For the last 15-20 minutes of the class, we’ll then move into a Hypnotherapy or Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) relaxation to ease stress and anxiety. Prepare to feel flexible, calm and restored and don’t forget to bring your blanket and pillow!
What’s your Pilates Fit class like?
Pilates Fit is our upbeat core strengthening, posture improving class with a fun, functional fitness twist! Suitable for all levels including beginners. This class will keep your mind and body guessing as the exercises change every week. In our regular Pilates Fit class, we play with different class formats each week; sometimes we’ll do exercises in a sequence, other weeks we’ll do low-intensity Pilates intervals (LIIT) or Pilates circuits. One thing’s for sure – you’ll have fun with this Pilates class. We also have an evening one with a party vibe!
Known to help prevent back problems before they occur, Pilates focuses on precise and controlled movements to build strength, flexibility, stability and mobility. In Pilates Fit we’ve got a mix of standing, seated and laying exercises. You’ll be moving your spine in all six different directions and begin to move better, stand taller and feel muscles you never realised you had. Prepare to feel those long and lean muscles. Pilates is so much more than an abs class: unleash your core strength!
What are your Yoga HIIT and Yoga Shred classes like?
Our Yoga HIIT and Yoga Shred classes will shake up your fitness! These classes are a high energy combination of yoga flow and low-impact yoga pose-inspired intervals. These classes come with so many benefits and regular participation will get you fit FAST and bring out your fiercer side! Yoga HIIT is available exclusively in the On Demand Studio and Yoga Shred is available live on Zoom.
Traditional yoga typically targets your slow twitch muscle fibres (great for endurance activities) but it doesn’t really target cardio fitness or your fast twitch muscle fibres which are responsible for short bursts of power. Yoga Shred targets these specifically. If your goal is to ‘tone up’ and/or ‘burn fat’, Yoga Shred will help tone your muscles and raise your metabolism so you’ll be burning energy even after the class is done.
If you’re into other fitness activities such as lifting, running or cycling, this class will also help you train cross-train for these activities. And of course, it’ll also help your existing yoga and pilates practice! Most notably, Yoga Shred movements are lower impact than many gym-based HIIT exercises so they’re much safer for your joints. The bottom line is you choose how hard you work; if you choose to go ‘all out’ on your intervals, you’ll see just how challenging low impact intervals can be!
What other classes do you offer?
We occasionally run in-person and online pilates and yoga courses. In the past we’ve run Yoga for Beginners, Pilates for Beginners, Yoga for Anxiety, Hypno Yoga for Weight Loss and Hypno Yoga for Confidence.
I’m pregnant or postnatal. Can I attend your classes?
Pregnancy isn’t the best time to start a strenuous exercise routine but if you’ve attended yoga or pilates classes before, we may be able to offer modifications in some classes to suit pregnancy in our ‘live’ Zoom classes and in-person classes. Most of our classes are suitable for postnatal ladies who have been signed off by their doctor/midwife (normally 6 weeks postpartum for a natural birth and 12 weeks for a caesarean). If you’re pregnant, please contact us before booking your space so we can make sure our classes are suitable for you.
Can you tell me about the health waiver form?
When you book a class, we have an electronic health waiver with a simple tick-box in the booking system. This waiver provides you with guidance on the types of conditions you’ll need to consult a medical practitioner about prior to attending a class or session with us so please read it carefully. The guidance is taken from the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) participant activity readiness questionnaire (PARQ) which is a fitness industry standard questionnaire designed to tell you whether you can safely participate in an exercise programme without seeking medical clearance. You should read the guidance and waiver carefully when making your booking to ensure you don’t need to consult a doctor before attending and assuming you’re happy, just tick the box on your booking to confirm. Of course if there’s anything in the waiver that you don’t understand, then just get in touch and we’ll be happy to advise.
Do I need a mat or any equipment?
You’ll need to have your own mat or a comfortable non-slip surface for our online yoga and pilates classes. Our live online classes either don’t use equipment or equipment will be optional. If equipment is needed for an On Demand Studio class, this will be clear in the class description so you can make an informed choice before booking. If you would like to buy your own yoga and pilates equipment, it can be purchased fairly inexpensively. If you would like to chat about equipment, please contact us.
If you’re attending an in-person class and don’t have a mat yet, we have a small number of mats available on a first-come, first served basis. If you require a mat, please indicate this on your booking form when you book. If equipment such as blocks, straps, bands or balls are required for the class, we’ll provide these. You’ll need to bring your own pillows and blankets for Hypno Yoga.
