What is Flow Yoga?

Flow Yoga with Roo is an exciting and dynamic yoga practise, where strength binds with flexibility, to leave you feeling more vibrant, more energised, and more alive both on and off the mat.

Learn to move with control and confidence. Using a blend of intelligent sequencing, core-focused functional exercises, flowing movement patterns, and powerful breath-work, build your way towards physical prowess! Every class is carefully crafted and designed with you in mind, helping you to stay safe and feel empowered through your movements. When we can move with ease, we can find freedom in our bodies, which then translates into our minds and ultimately, our lives. Learn how to sustain your inner strength, balance, and power.

This class will make you sweat, and is also a fantastic cardio workout designed to get the body moving in new adaptable ways. Because freedom in movement means freedom in life.

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is a deeply meditative, relaxing & nourishing practise designed to soothe the body and mind. Yin teaches us to really slow down and be present in the moment, the perfect antidote for the faster pace of modern life. The poses in yin are relatively simple, but each is held for up to 5 minutes at a time, with lots of support from pillows, blocks  and blankets. This allows plenty of time for your body and mind to settle in each posture, and is a great practise to do before bed for sound sleep.

Yin Yoga is a vessel for mindfulness and meditation. Allow yourself to begin to feel a deeper and more natural peaceful presence from within, find more contentment and connection in your day to day life. Through yin, we learn to trust and surrender, and allow things to be truly as they are.

Yin classes with Roo always include guided meditation & massage, carrying you away to a place of innermost pure and peaceful bliss.

Who can come to your classes?

I welcome all levels of students into my public classes, from total beginners to long-term practitioners. So whether you are someone who barely knows your fingers from your toes, or are doing handstands before breakfast, my classes offer a complete and comprehensive guide. I always offer modifications and structured choices within the postures to suit all levels and body types. My first priority is always to keep you safe. If you are nervous or feel uncomfortable for any reason about practising in a larger group setting, private sessions might suit you better. Click here to find out more about working with me in a 1-to-1 or small group setting.

What should I bring to my first yoga class?

All you need to bring is yourself, a bottle of water perhaps, and, if you like, something warm to put on to keep you warm during relaxation. All of the gyms and studios I work in provide all of the mats and equipment you might need. Wear clothes that you are comfortable moving in (gym kit is perfect), and if you want to do feel free bring along a pillow or blanket to provide yourself with some additional comfort (especially in yin classes!). Yoga is traditionally practised with bare feet. Some people like to wear special yoga grip socks, which is fine with me so long as your toes are able to move freely.
