Spring is here and it's getting busy at The Ox Effect Torquay. I thought I would put out a newsetter to highlight some exciting things happening around the place. New classes, new faces and best of all, new events. Read on to find out what we have in store for you.


Inside & Out

Spring Timetable

Starting Saturday our Vinyasa Yoga will have a change of pace. We are slowing it down. Naming it Over 50's Yoga. This will be geared to our members over 50 and those who require assistance and modifications. Don't worry, if you're not over 50, you can still participate - expect a gentle and slower form of yoga than the Power Vinyasa we had previously. Yoga is very beneficial for a number of reasons but did you now it is a full body, low impact workout that helps to reduce stress and relieve anxiety. All in an hour!

The Ox Effect will be back to 7 days. From the 23rd September, Sunday mornings will have a 9am class. Ox Fusion will be added due to popular demand.
This class consists of a normal HIIT circuit of various stations that are to be completed at high intensity in short bursts with timed intervals. At various points through the class, the HIIT circuit stops for the Yoga postures to commence for stretching and recovery. The Yoga intervals also serve as a longer rest period of the high intensity interval training. Stretching the muscles used in the circuit will aid the prevention of injury and relax your heart rate, as well as getting you ready to go again on the next part of the HIIT circuit.

Thursday morning yoga has been moved to Thursday night at 6pm with Mandy. Mandy's getting some great reviews so if you haven't tried her class you should do yourself a favour and go along Monday or Thursday night to her Mellow Yoga and Meditation class.

Mellow Flow is a Vinyasa style yoga, its light and creative, taken at a slower and gentler pace. We shall hold the postures for longer and transition between poses a bit slower.

Mellow Flow Yoga builds strength, stamina, balance and flexibility. It aids in calming the mind and body down by inviting us to synchronise breath with movement. It also removes tension and obstacles in the body allowing the prana (energy’s) to flow.

Creating inner peace and space for the everyday individual wanting more. Practiced in a welcome and safe environment. Open to all levels of practice.

*Towels are needed for benches and floors when working out.
We have a quick turnaround between classes and as we get busier clients are working in partnerships.
Respect your workout buddy by using a towel to wipe down equipment after use.

*Booking in to a class is easy using the app. Remember to cancel if you can't make it so someone else can grab your spot.

*If you need to suspend your membership can you let me know via email. I can refer back to it when putting in the suspension if I cant do it on the spot in class. We do have a separate direct debit company and it takes them 5 business days to stop your weekly payment. We can suspend your membership for up to 4 weeks a year.

* Please don't jump from one class into another halfway through. We try to stagger the classes so that people finishing work and school have multiple options to choose from.
