Element
This is Yoga Zone’s Entry-level yoga course for beginners. The classes introduce some basic yoga postures and fundamental breathing techniques, and are conducted at a more relaxed pace where students are encouraged to ask questions.

Hatha 1
A well-rounded yoga course using basic asanas introduced in a step-by-step manner.

Hatha 2
This is for intermediate and advanced practitioners. Each posture will be held for longer times and about 100 seated, standing and inverted yoga poses.

Hatha 3
Hatha 3 is for intermediate and advanced practitioners. It builds on the basic postures introduced in Hatha 1 and Hatha 2. Typically, each asana is held a period long enough to ensure it is understood thoughly; also allowing for gradual lengthening and strengthening of muscles and connective tissue involved.

Gentle Flow
These classes provide an introduction to vinyasa, which is the linking of breath and movement within a continuous sequence.

Flow
Designed for practitioners who have familiarized themselves with the basic yoga postures and who desire to learn the principle of vinyasa (asana with ujjayi pranayama) – the flowing from one pose to another with correct breathing technique.

It emphasizes the connection between one asana and the next through a sequence of breath-led movements. As such, benefits also include development of cardiovascular fitness and strength. Breathing techniques are used to calm the mind and generate body-cleansing inner heat.

Yin Yoga
These classes are suitable for all practitioners. Yin Yoga complements practice of other yoga classes. Yin yoga explore the body’s subtle energies and help lengthen the body’s connective tissues (the tendons and ligaments), especially at the pelvic and lower spine. It is also good in correcting any anatomical misalignment. While a strong physical body is important, it is not muscular strength but flexibility of our joints that gives us the sense of ease and lightness in the body.

Hot 1
Hot Yoga classes are conducted in a heated room where the temperature is raised to 37 degrees celcius. Classes adopt a specific sequence of yoga postures. The heated room also enables students to warm up much quicker and allows you to stretch into a posture more deeply, thereby improving flexibility and blood circulation.

Hot 2
Hot 2 is for more advanced practitioners. Like Hot 1, postures follow a specific flow sequence and deeper positions are used.

Pilates
Pilates works on increasing a student’s muscle strength in a controlled and supported manner. It tones and strengthens core muscles, improves co-ordination, posture and balance to keep the body well-tuned.

Beginner Pilates
These classes are an introduction to students who are new to Pilates.

Yogilates
Yogilates is designed based on the principles of both Yoga and Pilates. The focus these classes is to strengthen the core muscles with the aim of helping practitioners gain body strength and flexibility. Students who attend Yogilates classes regularly should find good results in lengthening their spine, strengthening and firming their abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks, and achieving an overall well-toned body!

Chi Pilates
A blend of Pilates with the ancient Chinese health care system based on Chi Kung. It is an innovative system of exercise based on balancing the mind and the body. It is also a fusion of the east and west, created with the intention of bringing the best of both worlds into one. Chi Pilates is practiced in a heated room and will help practitioners achieve greater flexibility and vitality.

Kids Yoga
This class is a time to align the young and creative minds of our kids with some fun and powerful yoga techniques. Basic poses are learned in a very playful environment to maintain our natural flexibility and to learn how to enjoy it!

Power 1
This class is the first step for someone who has never taken a power yoga class. The basics of breathing, sun salutations, and some basic poses will be introduced.
 
Power 2
Power 2 is an intermediate level sequence of power yoga postures. The class introduces deeper postures, some balancing and inverted postures.

Pranayama
For students who are interested in exploring the depths of their own thought process. Here and now awareness is the goal.

Hi there..
I am leaving London in May 2012 and am seeking work as a yoga instructor in Malaysia, or anywhere in South East Asia. I teach Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow, and am also an experienced Kundalini practitioner. If anyone can assist me, I would be very grateful.
Namaste,
Etain
