What meditation classes do you offer?

25/45 MEDITATION

A seated meditation practice designed to connect individuals with a powerful mental clarity that exists within every person but is often masked by a busy mind. This class will help students become more mindful, connected and self aware.
From beginners to experienced meditators, this class is suitable for everyone.

RELAXATION MEDITATION

A deeply restorative lying down practice designed to calm the nervous system. You will be fully supported with the use of bolsters, blankets, cushions and eye pillows to get you feeling as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Students can expect to be guided through relaxing scans of the body, yoga nidra, breath work or simple mantras.

Whether you need to unwind from the day, or recharge the mind and body, this 45 minute class will help you switch off from the often hectic pace of life.

If I am new to meditation, which class should I attend first?

If you're new to meditation we recommend starting with a 25min class or Relaxation Meditation before a seated 45min class.

What style of yoga do you offer?

FLOW
Vinyasa, fast paced class. The room is heated to 32 degrees

SLOW
A slower pace class suitable for beginners. The room is heated to 30 degrees

YIN
A restorative class suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced students.

Why is the yoga room heated?

The Yoga room is heated to a comfortable temperature to allow the body to lengthen and stretch safely and to also aid detoxification. We use high quality FAR Infared heating panels to provide a comfortable, even heat that will be felt across the entire room.

Infared heat rays radiate the same rays that are found in sunlight but don’t cause sunburn or any skin damage. The rays safely penetrate deep into the body, generating multiple benefits including increased blood flow, higher levels of oxygen and white blood cells, while also stimulating the production of collagen.

Please see our in-depth class descriptions for details on specific temperatures during each practice.

What styles of fitness do you provide?

Happy Melon’s small-group fitness classes are a fun, not-too-serious way to work up a sweat. With a range of circuit, boxing and strength-based classes, our trainers will challenge your limits whilst adjusting exercises to cater to individual needs. Beginning with a landing practice to still the mind, our trainers will then get you moving whilst providing options for all fitness levels and abilities. We encourage everyone to realise their body's full potential.

Our Bathrooms

Our bathrooms are designed to feel like a beautiful home. Please make the most of the facilities but we ask that you respect other guests and keep shower times to a couple of minutes during busy periods.

Bathrooms are equipped with shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion, as well as hairdryers and hair straighteners, we also have phone chargers available to loan from reception that can be charged in each locker.

Simply choose a locker that has a key and take the key with you to your class. Please return the key to the designated locker after your class.

Please leave used towels in the baskets provided.

Etiquette

We want you to free your soles so we ask that you leave your shoes in the change rooms or in the beautiful French drawers outside the yoga room.

Our Equipment

We use Manduka Pro yoga mats from California that are cleaned by the Happy Melon team after each class for your convenience. These mats have been developed for use in a commercial setting – they have a hygienic “closed cell” surface to keep moisture and sweat from being absorbed into the mat.

For the first few classes the mats will feel slightly slippery. To reduce slipperiness please use the hand towels provided.
