The most athletic and physically demanding form of yoga, Ashtanga consists of dynamic movement (vinyasa) and still, stable asanas. There are 6 sequences in all, with the finishing sequence involving body inversions to change the energy flow through the body and prepare you for relaxation. A certain level of fitness is required to start this intense classic Indian yoga style, often called ‘power yoga’.
Hatha Yoga is the root of all contemporary yoga practices and really is the correct term for what we now just call ‘yoga’. Hatha classes combine a slower sequence of poses, emphasizing alignment and deep breathing. In practice, a Hatha Yoga class will usually involve a warm up through sun salutation, followed by a series of poses (asanas), but without the intense flowing movements of vinyasas. The classes also include pranayama (breathing exercises) to help energise and balance the nervous system. Hatha is suitable for all levels.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
suitable for all levels
‘vinyasa’ means to link breath and movement, step-by-step, according to our personal needs. in this dynamic flow class we explore the possibilities of what this means. there is a large focus on breath work and creating a solid foundation on which our yoga practice can be built. loosely working from the ashtanga sequence, this class promotes stability, strength and flexibility of body and mind.

One of the first yoga traditions to be introduced to the west, a Sivananda class begins with pranayama (breathing exercises) followed by sun salutations and then a series of 12 asanas with resting in savasana (corpse pose) in between. Sivananda yoga often emphasises the spiritual aspects of a yoga practice.
Pranayama Yoga with Hatha
A comprehensive teaching of exercises, breathing, meditation and mantras introduced to the west by Yogi Bhajan as ‘the mother of all yogas’.

Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing. At Osana, Pilates exercises are done on a mat. Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling.

Yoga for All Ages
This is for those who think we’re too old, young, stiff or unfit for yoga (and it’s not true because it’s never too late).
We believe that Yoga is for everyone regardless of age, body shape or fitness.
Yoga for the young at heart
As we mature in age, we hopefully have more time for ourselves, our family, for leisure, and relaxation. However, it is also the time when we can become more susceptible to some ailments and this is a good reason to stay fit and healthy. Yoga is a form of exercise that adapts to your needs and abilities. It makes your body fitter, the mind calmer and relaxes you. Yoga is also beneficial in the prevention and control of common health problems that are commonly linked with aging. Some yoga poses are designed to normalise your blood pressure and balance the nervous system, as well as being helpful in the prevention of heart conditions.
At Osana, in addition to Urban Zen Restorative and Hatha Yoga classes, you can take a Never Too Late (aka Golden Girls!) class, which is an ideal introduction to yoga. Or, if you prefer, you can start with a Yoga for the non-Yogi or a private one-on-one class in your home or at Osana.
Yoga for Children
Yoga is for everyone – you’re never too young (or too old) to start.
Kids yoga classes are a wonderful way to increase children’s coordination, focus, self-awareness, confidence, balance and self esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies.
Through yoga, children can learn to relax, concentrate and begin to understand and connect with their ever-changing bodies and selves.
Yoga for Teens
Teenagers, perhaps more than anyone, need to ease the everyday stress and pressures of their lives. a yoga class is the perfect pause in between the hectic worlds of school, friends, studying and partying.
Besides relaxing, improving mood and promoting physical fitness, studies prove that teens who practice yoga are less anxious and perform better in school. teen yogis are also more confident, have improved self-esteem and body acceptance and are more creative and disciplined.
Yoga is the perfect complement to other sports, such as football, swimming, tennis and basketball.
