RESTORATIVE AQUA CLASSES
A 30 minute guided meditation during which you will use floatation to explore your deeper self and creative being. Heighten visualization and deepen your meditation while promoting total calm and peaceful relaxation.
Watsu is a gentle form of body therapy performed in warm water. It combines elements of massage, joint mobilisation, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance. The receiver is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of warm water and nurturing support, combine with Watsu's movements, stretches, massage and point work, to create a bodywork with a range of therapeutic benefits and potential healing on many levels.
Moments of stillness alternate with rhythmical flowing movements, which free the body in ways impossible on land. The warm water relaxes the muscles and supports the spine. With this support and without the weight of the body, the spine, joints and muscles can be manipulated and freed in a way unique to water work. The effects include a very gentle, yet deep stretching and a release of muscular and joint restrictions, along with a state of deep relaxation, which encourages the release of stress and tensions.

WHO IS AQUA FOR?
Water is an extremely versatile element that allows for different levels of intensity, so literally everybody can benefit from an aquatic training routine. And no, you don't necessarily have to know how to swim: the pool is 4ft deep and your head can always stay above water.
Whether you are looking for a powerful workout to build muscle strength and endurance or a more relaxing and restorative workout focused on breathing and flexibility, we have the right class for you. Make sure you check the class level when you book your spot!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
What to wear:
Women: we recommend a one-piece bathing suit or a sports bra and shorts, whatever feels most comfortable and supportive, as long as it is formfitting.
Men: swim trunks or briefs, or shorts with supportive lining.
AQUATIC SHOES ARE MANDATORY. We have aquatic shoes for sale or you can bring your own.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
If it's your first class, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you have time to fill out the necessary forms and we can help you set you up on the bike or familiarize yourself with the equipment.
If it's not your first time with us, please plan to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the beginning of class.
Lockers are at your disposal for your personal belongings. Although you may lock up your locker, please note that the studio is not responsible for any loss or theft of personal belongings.
Before entering the pool, make sure you shower to wash off any residue from the day and help us keep our purified water pristine.
Once inside the pool, choose your bike and wait for our trainer to help you adjust it to your size for optimum posture.
Each class is a 45-minute workout led by one of our master trainers. They each have their style and approach, which you will come to know and love, and our classes vary in intensity - make sure you check the class level when you book your spot. In general, you should expect a 5 minute warm-up session, a 35-40 minute workout, and a 5 minute cool-down/active stretching session.
