The type of Yoga I teach…

  • Rejuvenating Mat Yoga (Tuesdays at 9.30am)

Mat yoga classes are taught in the Vinyasa tradition, are gentle in nature and will leave you with a ‘sheen’ (yoga code for a little bit of sweat.)

Each class begins with some time in mindfulness – perhaps setting an intention for the practice – and then we move into the asanas or poses. These movements begin low to the ground, moving up to standing and with a flowing style we move to strengthening and balancing postures. The physical practice returns to the ground and finishes with poses on our backs before moving into a seated position for breath work. We conclude each practice in the yummy shavasana posture – which is where I think the magic really happens (this is the lying down bit where I lead a mediation and some time of stillness.)

The Rejuvenating Mat Class will provide you with an energetic spark to continue your day. We also often gather for chai tea after a class – so this is bound to leave you feeling rejuvenated – both within your body and in a social setting!

  • Restorative Mat Yoga (Wednesday nights at 7pm)

Mat yoga classes are taught in the Vinyasa tradition, are gentle in nature and will leave you with a ‘sheen’ (yoga code for a little bit of sweat.)

Each class begins with some time in mindfulness – perhaps setting an intention for the practice – and then we move into the asanas or poses. These movements begin low to the ground, moving up to standing and with a flowing style we move to strengthening and balancing postures. The physical practice returns to the ground and finishes with poses on our backs before moving into a seated position for breath work. We conclude each practice in the yummy shavasana posture – which is where I think the magic really happens (this is the lying down bit where I lead a mediation and some time of stillness.)

The Restorative Mat Yoga Class ensures that you leave the class feeling rested and ready for a beautiful night’s sleep (just watch out for kangaroos as you drive home!)

  • Chair Yoga (Saturday mornings at 8.00am)

Chair yoga classes are taught in the Vinyasa tradition. Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that can be done sitting on a chair or standing on the ground while using the chair for support. It is beneficial for people with limited mobility and for those who want to practice yoga at their workplace.

Each class begins with some time in mindfulness – perhaps setting an intention for the practice – and then we move into the asanas or poses. These movements begin with mobilising the body, we then sit forward in our chair and move into stronger poses, including strengthening and balancing postures. The physical practice finishes with stretching before we move back into a relaxed seated position for breath work. We conclude each practice with relaxation – which is where I think the magic really happens – I might lead a mediation and invite some time of stillness.

  • Corporate Chair Yoga

The classes are done on a chair (in a space such as a board room or meeting room) and are 45 mins in length. People can participate in their work gear as it is less sweaty than a mat class but still gives all the benefits of yoga. I love it! Let me know if you are interested in finding out more.

  • If you can’t make it to a class in person…

Here are a couple of my favourite online practices – you can do them in your daggiest trackies or PJ’s! A restful and rejuvenating practice for any time of the day – Yoga Nidra and Goodnight Moon Salutations before you hop into bed.
