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 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 judged or compared to everyone else, so you won’t find any of this in our classes, whether in person or online. If you’re a beginner, it’s also no problem as our classes are all mixed ability. 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.

How much are your classes?
Virtual yoga and pilates classes
Our ‘live’ online yoga and pilates classes are £7 per person or £6 if you book with one or more friends. Payment can be made when booking or by bank transfer on the day.
Our ‘on demand’ virtual yoga and pilates classes are £5 per viewing, paid online when booking.
In-person yoga and pilates classes
Our North Swindon yoga and pilates classes are £8 per person or £7 each if you book with one or more friends. Payment can be made by card, bank transfer or cash. If you are planning to pay with cash, please bring exact money as limited change is available.
What’s the difference between a ‘live’ and ‘on demand’ virtual class?
A ‘live’ virtual class is the next best thing to an in-person class. We run ours through Zoom and you’ll have ‘live’ interaction with your instructor throughout, including more personalised verbal cues if you enable your camera. You can also ask questions before and after class so if you’re struggling with a pose or exercise, your instructor will be on hand to provide guidance.
Our ‘on demand’ virtual yoga and pilates classes are pre-recorded classes with a similar feel to our live classes but without personalised interaction from your instructor. You can do an on demand class at any time on the day of your booking. This could be a more convenient option if a live class isn’t on at a time you want to do it or if 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 reach your mind and body goals. The following descriptions might help you decide which class you’d most like to attend.

What’s your Yoga Flow class like?
Our Yoga Flow class is the best of all worlds. This is our fitness-focused, mixed ability yoga class inspired by the hatha and vinyasa yoga styles. Lots of options are given throughout the class to suit beginner to experienced yogis alike. The class has a bit of everything so whether your goal is to improve your strength and flexibility or use movement to release the stress of a busy day, this is the class for you.
What’s your Meditative Yoga class like?
Our tranquil Meditative Yoga class focuses on mental health and physical flexibility. This class offers a mix of seated and laying yoga poses. Some poses will be held for a few breaths for mobility (hatha style) while others will be held for minutes at a time for flexibility (yin style) and using pillows and blankets for support (restorative style). It’s suitable for everyone, including pregnant and postnatal ladies. Our Meditative Yoga class can improve your flexibility a lot, help circulation and calm a busy mind. This class also features a long Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) meditation which is the ultimate in yoga relaxation. 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 perfecting class with a fun, functional fitness twist! Pilates focuses on precise and controlled movements to build strength, flexibility and mobility. In Pilates Fit we’ve got a mix of standing, seated and laying exercises. You’ll begin to move better, stand taller and feel muscles you never realised you had. Prepare to feel those long and lean muscles!
What’s your Yoga Shred-inspired class like?
Our Yoga Shred-inspired class is a cross-training combination of yoga and HIIT (high intensity interval training) inspired by the Yoga Shred method. In our Yoga Shred-inspired class, you’ll get a full body cardio workout that has its foundations in vinyasa yoga. This class will help you improve your core strength through flowing yoga sequences and high-intensity, low impact intervals. Unlike traditional yoga, it will also target your fast-twitch muscle fibres and help you burn more fat. It’s designed to bring out your fiercer side – raaaaa!
What other classes do you offer?
We occasionally run in-person and online pilates and yoga courses, including Hypno Yoga variants which contain a hypnotherapy relaxation at the end. 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 to suit pregnancy in our ‘live’ online 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). 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 classes. Our live online classes don’t use equipment or will have ‘no equipment’ options and if equipment is needed for an on-demand class, this will be clear in the class description so you can make an informed choice before booking. Dressing gown belts make a great substitute for yoga straps and pilates bands, books can be good substitutes for yoga blocks and a child’s toy ball can work for some pilates exercises with a ball. If you would like to buy your own yoga and pilates equipment, it can be purchased reasonably inexpensively. If you would like to know what equipment we use, 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 Meditative Yoga.
