Are you brand new to Yoga? And perhaps not sure which classes to start with?
No problems, feel free to attend any of these sessions to get some good basics and yoga foundations.
If you are not sure when you are ready to progress, just check with your instructor and they will be able to advise you.
PRE NATAL YOGA -
Please note we take pre natal clients FROM 16 weeks or 12 weeks if you have been a regular client
with Yoga Fix pre conception.
Please message us before coming to class so we can advise which classes suit your pregnancy stage.
- NO Hot Yoga Practice while pregnant as well as our Pilate Matwork classes as these are all deep core related exercises - perfect for post baby practice once doctor's clearance has been given or you have seen a Women's Health Physiotherapist.
*** by attending Yoga Fix in Pre Natal State you acknowledge Yoga Fix Mackay Instructors are not trained in Specific Pre Natal Yoga and any classes I attend I am responsible for my own body and practice with modifications as a mum to be. If I become Pre Natal State I will advise instructors to seek best possible yoga care for myself and my baby.
YOGA & PILATES
Classes circled is a great place to start your practice
BEGINNER'S POWER YOGA (60 MINUTES)
Monday 5:45pm - 6:45pm
Beginner's Power Yoga is great if you are feeling anxious about the Yoga World. In this class we keep it simple and safe for you to begin your yoga journey. Let us help you learn the basics and experience the benefits a simple yoga practice can bring you.
PILATES MATWORK (60 MINUTES)
Monday 4:30pm (express 45 mins) - Tuesday & Thursday 5:30am - 6:30am
60 minute Pilates Matwork class with Marion.
Matwork Pilates is a system of repetitive exercises performed on a mat.
The primary focus is on awareness of the spine, proper breathing, core strength & flexibility. Classes will be taught using slow, controlled movements using your own body weight as the primary source of resistance. Pilates targets the “powerhouse” muscles, which include the glutes, hips, pelvic floor, and lower back.
The core-strengthening benefits of this method is improved posture, flexibility, and balance
The difference between Yoga and Pilates, is that in Yoga we adopt a position and hold it or flow into a different position. In Pilates, you adopt a position then challenge your core by moving your arms and legs.
HOT YOGA (60 MINUTES)
Tuesday 5:45pm - 6:45pm
Saturday 7:00am - 8:00am
Hot Yoga, simply put is our Power Yoga practiced in a heated room. During your Hot Yoga class the room is heated to between 32-36 degrees. The heat aids the body in relaxing your muscles, detoxify the body and may also assist in stress relief and weight loss. A strong Yinyasa Practice makes this the perfect mix of challenging and rejuvenating style and a very popular class at Yoga Fix Mackay.

We advise only intermediate to advanced yogi's attend this class but encourage anyone who is looking to advance their practice to join even if you may not be quite strong enough yet, the only way to to improve is by practice.
LONG SLOW DEEP (90 MINUTES)
Long Slow Deep focuses on holding poses for a longer period of time, rather that flowing through the movement. LSD is designed to provide you with a deep stretch throughout the poses. This class also helps to strengthen your mind to get the most out of your poses.
This class is for everyone, those who are naturally flexible along with those who aren't. Everyone can benefit and grow from this class.
POWER YOGA (60 MINUTES)
Friday 5:30am - 6:30am
Power yoga is a vigorous, fitness-based vinyasa-style yoga. Power yoga strengthens your body, increases flexibility, and promotes stamina as well as improving posture and balance.
In Power Yoga you will never be bored, as each class is different from the previous one. This sets this yoga apart from some other styles of yoga, where you are thought the same sequence time and time again.
