IN STUDIO – FUZION FIT (810 Kokomo Rd, HAIKU):
MON 5.30PM & THURS 8.30AM
This Class is a slow and delicious journey from movement to stillness. You will start slowly with a centering practice before transitioning into gentle movements that warm up the major joints of the body while helping you to relax and connect to your breath. Foundational standing poses follow that create length to the legs and hips and freedom to spine and ribcage. Coming down to the floor again you will enjoy gentle backbends and twists, hip openers and forward bends. The practice closes with a nice juicy savasana, and time permitting some breathing and meditation practices. This class is suited for all levels of students. There is no core work or arm balances and any inversions are cooling and well supported. This class is the perfect “active rest day” during a busy week! PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PROPS – mat, 2 blocks, strap and a blanket (you will use them all)
IN STUDIO FUZION FIT (810 Kokomo Rd, HAIKU):
All levels welcome! This class is designed to move at a much slower pace than the Gentle Flow practice. Think of it as a blend of Yin and Restorative, using long holds, props and deep relaxing breathing. You will get to slow right down, taking a few minutes in each pose so you can “sink into and release deeply” those areas of muscular and mental tension. The poses are done on the floor with an array of props to release deeply into hips and shoulders, side body, and lower back and lower belly. Inversions are cooling and restorative. Classes can include pranayama and students get to enjoy a longer savasana.
It is the perfect way to wind down from a busy day or start the weekend off relaxed and refreshed! PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PROPS – mat, 2 blocks, strap and a blanket (you will use them all)

Students will learn how to use props and regression or progression of these poses so that they feel confident in their practice whether it be in a group class or a home practice.
Students will also begin to develop the awareness and physical conditioning needed to practice pranayama (breathing practices).
They will leave the knowing how to sequence a solid, safe and self supporting personal practice that they can enjoy at home, when on holiday or travelling.

MIXED LEVEL VINYASA FLOW
schedule details coming
These classes are a unique blend of asana, yogic philosophy, and chanting to create an uplifting experience that energizes the body, calms the mind and opens the heart! The slightly longer class provides students with enough time to explore and find proper alignment in a pose while still challenging themselves to move dynamically, building heat and strength. The classes have a strong focus on standing poses and balances to build functional strength in the legs and to the open hips; core work to support upper body strength and gentle backbends to strengthen the back and open the shoulders. More advanced poses such as deeper backbends, inversions and arm balances are explored towards the middle of the class and seated hip openers and cooling inversions follow at the end. This well rounded practice will develop strength, mobility and balance.
