HOT BIKRAM YOGA
Vigorous and exhilarating, a fixed sequence of yoga postures taught in a heated room with added humidity to increase flexibility and enhance stamina. These classes are great for both beginners, but experienced yogis also enjoy them.
HOT VINYASA YOGA
Also heated. A creative flowing class, set to music, where a range of postures and transitions are explored. Yogis of all levels are welcome in these classes.
HOT POWER YOGA
Similar to our Hot Vinyasa classes, but with an increased cardio element - some strength work and added stamina training. A great class for people who are serious about fitness.
Long, slow, deep. Yin Yoga is a non-heated practice in which deep stretches are held for a few minutes at a time in order to heal the joints and connective tissues.
A classical yoga sequence, developed by K. Patthabi Jois of Mysore, India, and taught in a non-heated room to the sound of our breath. Ashtanga is a great practice for students wishing to work on the foundations of their practice. Our ashtanga classes are led, primary.
Based on the ashtanga sequence, this class has a number of added mood-elevating postures, including heart openers and arm balances. A great class for people who want to play and unleash their inner child. Ideally you should have done one or two other classes before coming to a Rocket class.
A weekly gathering where we practice different styles of mindfulness meditation, mostly guided, with beginners instruction. Our meditation classes are not linked to any specific tradition, and are open to people from all backgrounds and levels of experience.

PREPARE FOR THE HEAT
Our classes are very hot (up to 38 degrees Celsius), so expect to sweat a lot. You have to bring along a large bottle of water and TWO big towels - one to use in the hot room (a beach towel works well) and one if you want to shower afterwards

We have space in our reception area where our yoga community can chat and catch up, but our hot yoga room is a quiet space, so please respect other yogis’ silence when you enter the practice room.
