The workout follows a research-supported design of specifically sequenced exercises, making it an entire system of bone and joint health, rather than just a set of exercises. Toning your arms, hips, back and abs, the Buff Bones® system also improves posture, is adaptable to varying levels, and is even safe for those with Osteoporosis, Osteopenia and some spinal conditions(to be determined).
Developed in the United States by Rebekah Rotstein, a recognised expert in Pilates and exercise for Osteoporosis, this dynamic one-hour class is enjoyable and challenging for people of all ages and levels.

This is a Vinyasa style Yoga class based on Hatha Yoga and adds a mindful approach to flowing Yoga.
Flow Yoga classes are designed to allow you to improve your alignment, while building strength, increasing flexibility and improving stamina. Longer holds and slow transitions offer the opportunity to increase your understanding of the body in each pose and more time spent working on each pose will allow you to deepen and improve your personal practice.
The class includes Sun Salutations, standing, prone, supine, arm strengthening and seated postures then ends with a guided relaxation.
Why do we heat the Yoga Room at HARA for some classes during the cooler months?
At Hara we use Far Infrared Heaters.
The HARA YOGA flow sequence is practised in a room warmed to the comfortable temperature of a late spring day @28 degrees in order to support the natural building of warmth within the physical body. However we don't believe that practicing in a heated room during summer and hot days is healthy nor balancing so we only offer heated rooms on cooler days/months of the year:)
class size 6-max10
This class will offer modified Yoga Therapy postures and other theraputic movement which is specifically designed for you as an individual, some exercises will be practiced as a group and then you will have your own set program to follow afterwards.
Note: If you have a pre existing injury, this class may not be suitable for you. Options to book into a Private Yoga Therapy session with your teacher may be more suited to more serious issues that need specific individual care and attention.
Please contact the studio to discuss these options.
