Coming from a background in dance, the founders of this new boutique studio in the leafy Lynfrae suburb – sisters Leigh and Karen Bosch – share a deep appreciation for health, self-care, and wellbeing. Their aim is to provide an urban sanctuary to support students in creating a moment of pause during the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The studio allows students the freedom to develop a sense of grounding – the necessary foundation on which to explore and grow an authentic yoga practice.
Yoga classes are led by experienced teachers who not only guide the sequence of poses, but take all who attend on a journey of self-discovery. This allows for greater self-awareness, somatically and otherwise, as well as cultivating a deeper connection with life itself.
Students with House of Yoga memberships and class credits can book classes via the BoxChamp app.
House of Yoga hosts a variety of classes (including three sessions for ‘Beginners’) influenced by various yoga styles including Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Scaravelli. But their trademark comes in a series of Vinyasa Flow-inspired sessions. From ‘Get Up & Flow’, to kickstart the day right, to a ‘Soul Glow Flow’ session encouraging the body, mind and soul to sing. The ‘Evening Flow’ slot is designed to create heat in the body in order to build strength, increase flexibility and inspire somatic awareness. Forrest-inspired yoga aims to connect with your core, and their ‘Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra’ classes use stretching and meditation for a holistic fitness recovery session. And for those seeking special attention to technique, action, and alignment, the ‘Yoga Accent’ sessions are the ideal option.
