Bikram Yoga

Hail the original hot yoga. The one that doesn’t mess around. You’re going to sweat, you’re going to challenge yourself and you’re going to go deeper. And you’re going to do it all in 40 degree goodness. Empowering consistency, these 60 or 90-minute classes are ideal for tracking and improving flexibility, strength and balance.

Power Flow

Move with the flow. Here’s where we delve deep into the dynamic world of vinyasa. This modern sequence favours presence, alignment and connection, and we add exceptional backing tunes to keep you in the zen zone. It’s a balanced blend of simple but strong movements, and it all goes down in a 34 degree room.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga. Feeling out of balance? Your busy ‘yang’ day is craving a serving of yin. This peaceful practice awakens and rebalances the physical and emotional self. Long holds work deep to unlock tension and cultivate stillness. These classes are like a lovely hug, practiced in a warm room with music to help you melt.

Yin Roll & Release. Roll up and release. This dreamy self-massage session uses therapy balls and myofascial techniques to ease tension in hips, back, neck and shoulders. Call it mindful magic. The yin elements leave you to slowly surrender, calming the nervous system and bringing balance back to the body and mind.

THE OWNERS

Upstate is about a positive state of mind for sisters and business partners Gail and Charelle. It’s more than just a class, it’s creating a lifestyle you love. It’s about challenging yourself, whilst also getting quiet right here, right now to empower yourself to live loud and stretch into your full potential.

Gail and Charelle have been teaching yoga for over a decade and opened their first studio in 2009. Both suffered from early disc degeneration and back pain, practicing yoga and pilates in a heated room has transformed their lives physically and mentally.

We want people to live the best life possible physically, mentally and emotionally. When you get here you will see what all the fuss is about, an experience where we sweat, smile and challenge – without taking ourselves too seriously, to thrive and be happy!
