The Wellness Studio

The Wellness Studio at Castle Quay is a peaceful and inspiring environment with wood style flooring, floor to ceiling mirrors, air conditioning and adjustable lighting. The industrial exposed ceiling in the Studio is in keeping with The Wellness Centre’s contemporary style and lends an unusual twist to this space.

Classes at The Wellness Studio will be kept small to ensure that all attendees received ample attention and encouragement in a group environment. We also offer ‘one to one’ sessions for those who require specialist tuition, or just prefer practicing on their own. All equipment needed for a class is included in the tuition price, however, should one prefer to bring their own this is also possible. Our great Team at The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay) offer Pilates classes, Yoga and Yoga Therapy. The Wellness Studio is also used for our educational and inspirational seminars such as Mindfulness classes by both the Team at The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay) and Guest Lecturers.

Pilates

Pilates (Shefa)

Our Pilates classes focus on developing strength through the core of the body (back, shoulders, abdomen and hips). This provides a foundation to continue working and exercising the rest of the body. The concentration is not only on strength but also on flexibility and coordination. As Pilates both strengthens and aids flexibility, it can also be used to help people with poor mobility, muscular pain and injury rehabilitation. Shefa teaches Pilates for beginners, intermediates and more advanced students. For more information please click here.

Yoga

 Dynamic Yoga & Kinetic Therapy (Henrietta)

Woman and man doing yogaIn Henrietta’s group classes you will learn Dynamic Yoga core techniques undertaken through a step-by-step (vinyasa krama) approach to yoga posture practice (asana), breathing (pranayama) and movement (ullola). Dynamic Yoga teaches you to
release tension in any yoga pose, relieving stress, while still maintaining the necessary muscular effort to maintain flow, good posture and good alignment. Muscles are toned, joints are mobilized, heat is generated and at times the cardiovascular system is challenged. It is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced students and can be practiced side by side.

Private classes are usually taught one to one, whether it be because you are new to yoga and prefer to practice in privacy before joining a group class, or because you would prefer to refine and/or deepen your practice, allowing you to progress at your own pace.

Yin Yoga (Alastair)

Whilst most forms of yoga offered in classes are generally dynamic, active practices concentrating on muscular (“yang”) tissues, Alastair’s Yin Yoga offers a complementary approach, allowing practitioners to focus on the fascial (“yin”) tissues of the body (that is, the band of connective tissue fibres which envelope, separate or bind muscles), including tendons, ligaments, bones and joints. While initially this style of yoga can seem quite passive, or soft, yin practice can be challenging as poses are held as deep as is comfortable, and for a long time. Yin Yoga is suitable for almost all levels of students, and is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles.

Vinaysa Flow (Sevda)

Sevda’s classes are infused with strength and precision, and are intended to move you smoothly and continuously between poses, creating strong, fluid movements in your body. Vinyasa flow is a dynamic, flowing type of yoga that links breathing with movement. Most classes start with a centring warm-up practice, followed by a variety of flowing standing poses, balancing poses, a seated stretch section and finally a closing relaxation session. These classes are often described as a strong practice that allows students to face challenges with support and guidance, inspiring them to move forward fearlessly and more consciously.

Wild Card Class

Our ‘Wild Card’ classes are designed for students that want variety to their practice. Each week the class will be different and a great surprise! With several instructors taking this class, you can be sure to experience something new each time. This class may be a Yoga class or Pilates class, and it will be themed differently each week. This could be a technique class (do you need help with perfecting your downward dog or hand-stand..?), a core class, a class focusing on breathing and relaxation or just about anything else.

If you would like to advance your overall fitness while learning and experiencing new practices, this is the class for you!


Registration

Prior to participating in private or group sessions each new participant must register with the Centre and complete a Health Declaration Form. This process ensures that our Team is fully aware of each individual’s health goals, existing medical conditions, and that any exercise undertaken is appropriate for each individual.

N.B. – The above registration process is not required for any existing patients of the ‘Jersey Chiropractic Centre’, but may be performed should the client/patient request or require it at a later stage.
