Yoga helps to bring the body back into alignment, it tones, builds strength and increases flexibility. It detoxifies and invigorates the various bodily systems. On a more subtle level it brings a sense of calm, develops focus and concentration, and allows us to unite the body and mind.
At Balance we offer morning and evening classes for adults, from beginners to advanced level. Our adult classes are mainly Ashtanga Vinyasa. Our Balance Kids Yoga classes are lots of fun for your child and will help develop body awareness, balance, flexibility, concentration, focus and positive thinking.

You can start any time, there is no fixed start date, you just need comfortable clothes, a mat and a bottle of water to hydrate after class. If you don’t have your own mat, there are some spare ones in the studio. (On Saturday mornings please access the building from St Joseph’s Avenue if the ABCD front door is closed.)

This refers to the system that was taught by Guru Sri. K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. Ashtanga translates as “eight-limbed” and refers to the eight limbs outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. They include moral and ethical guidelines, postures, breathwork, sense withdrawal, concentration, and meditation. This style of yoga is a process and the postures are learned in a specific sequence coordinating breath with movement. Through following the sequence and utilising the tristhana elements of ujjayi breath, bandha and drishti, the body realigns and becomes strong. On a more subtle level, concentration and focus increase and this leads us into a meditative state.
