These workshop-style classes focus heavily on correct alignment and our experienced teachers will show you how to develop your yoga practise to a point where you can reach poses safely and accurately. So whether it's handstands, backbends, increasing flexibility or simply improving your technique - Orange will help guide your progression into your desired pose. 

These classes are recommended for beginners but are open to all levels as options will be given to those who wish to challenge themselves.


About Orange Light

We use a very specific wavelength of Orange light which has shown very similar results to the use of red light and therefore the the two colours have many shared benefits. Orange light does not penetrate the skin as deep as red light does but there are many positive physical as well mentally stimulating results from the use of orange light.

Not only is orange light recommended for rebalancing your sleep cycle, it stimulates the cognitive part of the brain, reduces anxiety and promotes youthful, healthy skin by balancing collagen production.  

The reason orange light is so good or the skin, brain and muscles, is thought to be due to the effects on mitochondrial energy production. Mitochondria are small structures inside our cells which are the powerhouses of the human body. They take fat, sugar and protein from our food, combining it with oxygen to convert it into energy. 

This same mechanism is also responsible for many of the benefits of sunlight, which contains the orange wavelengths as part of its spectrum. Sunlight however, comes bundled with harmful UV light, making orange light extremely beneficial to our health. Some of these benefits are as follows:

  • Increases productivity and alertness

  • Reduces anxiety and stress

  • Promotes a healthy sleep cycle and aids insomnia

  • Soothes inflamed muscular tissue

  • Increases metabolism and accelerates weight loss

  • Promotes youthful, healthy skin by balancing collagen production

  • Corrects hormonal imbalances in both men and women

Orange light is absorbed by a protein in the mitochondria called Cytochrome C Oxidase and is intricately involved in the final stages of respiration - producing energy, carbon dioxide and water.

Properly functioning mitochondria are essential for all functions of life and it is thought that orange light removes and inhibitory/stress molecule called nitric oxide, therefore restoring the normal function of processing oxygen and converting it into energy. From this perspective, orange light has an unique anti-stress effect and indirectly normalises energy production which enables our body to perform all of it's normal functions optimally; from quicker cellular repair/healing to normalised collagen production.
