THINK YOU'RE TOO STIFF FOR YOGA?
TRUST ME - YOU'RE NOT!!

EVEN if you've seen people doing crazy yoga poses and thought "Jeeezus Ch@#st.. I could never do that!" 

These classes are NOT about forcing your body into crazy pretzel-like shapes and ALL about guiding you through a gentle and easy sequence of yoga poses that release muscle tension and improve your posture, progressively improve your flexibility, strengthen the muscles of your entire body, and make you feel calm and balanced in the head. YEP!.. they actually do ALL of that!


IF YOU'RE

  • Looking for a way to slim down, gain strength, reduce stress, and increase your flexibility...
  • Wanting to firm up your wobbly bits..
  • Need a class that's after work or fits in with your family routine on week nights..
  • Busy in the head balancing life and work commitments and need a dose of 'me time' that'll restore you physically & mentally..
  • Wanting to stay on top of the ageing process and delay (or defy) the downward spiral and hunching shoulders syndrome..
  • Keen to flatten your tummy and improve core strength (without killing your neck with sit-ups!)
  • Decided you're lose some chub this year, or just wanna stay slim XXX needs some work here. 

These 60min classes will do the trick!


You might have thought about starting yoga already, or you've been saying for ages you'll get into it, please know these classes are the PERFECT way to get started as a Beginner.

And the MAIN THING you MUST know is...

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE FLEXIBLE TO DO YOGA!

start COMING TO CLASSES AND you'LL GET MORE FLEXIBLE...
IT'S Not the other way round! Make sense?


Maybe you already know about yoga but STILL think you're not stretchy enough to do it?

Right now you are absolutely 'stretchy enough' to do yoga. (Even if right now you're thinking "yeah, but she's not talking to me" - I AM talking to YOU. As long as you can make it from the carpark to your yoga mat YOU WILL absolutely be able to do these classes AND you'll really ENJOY them!

HOW CAN I BE SO SURE ABOUT THAT? (After all this is YOU we're talking about, right?)
Because yoga's not a sport it's 100% non-competitive. So there's no-one to try and 'out-do' in a yoga class but you. Sounds like a silly thing to say but it's exactly what goes on in most people's heads when they think about going to a yoga class. Silly question but it totally addresses exactly what goes on for most people when they consider going to a yoga class then chicken.
There really is nothing to worry about and EVERYTHING to gain from these classes. 
Each pose comes with an explanation of how to do it in baby-steps, then after you've been coming for a while you'll start to notice tiny changes as we go through the system which add up to HUGE changes after 3 months. It'a all about slow and steady practice, that totally 'wins' with yoga. 

about starting where you are and SLOWLY improving your overall strength and flexibility so that you age well and preserve the muscles, tendons, and ligaments as best you can. 
It's really not about contorting yourself into unimaginable positions! Yoga is 100% non-competitive so the only person you're 'up against' is yourself and trust me the hardest part is just getting to the mat - the rest is EASY and your lower back, shoulders, crook in the neck, or sore knees will thank you a 1000 times for coming to class tomorrow :)

  • 60min YOGA CLASSES ARE:

  • Suitable for absolute beginners!
  • Gentle and Easy. Help you tone up your wobbly bits and increase overall strength and flexibility.
  • Designed to progressively improve your strength, stretchy-ness, balance, and core stability (yep, yoga uses your abdominals!)
  • A great way to reverse postural imbalance caused by prolonged periods of sitting or computer use. 
  • A totally 'safe space' where you can have a laugh and join in the fun as we all try new things and extend ourselves (just a little) in new ways - because yoga's not a sport, the only person you can compete with is YOU. 
  • The elixir for overwhelm. When the kids are driving you crazy, you've eaten 'all the food' and time to yourself seems like a fantasy - a 60min class will help you feel balanced and restore your energy. 
  • GREAT for your HORMONES! Clam the Nervous system, improve Immune function, and restore Adrenal xxx?
  • An hour to yourself that emphasises self-care and deep relaxation that will make you feel more emotionally balanced throughout the week (so you'll be more inclined to do other 'self care-y' stuff between classes). 
  • Taught by an experienced Yoga Instructor who will guide you through the class and show you how to do each pose to suit your current fitness level and/or injuries, and make the poses work for your body type. You will be expertly cared for. 
  • A great way to start or continue a weight loss journey.

FAQ'S

I'M AN ABSOLUTE BEGINNER WITH YOGA - WILL I BE ABLE TO DO ALL THE POSES? (Eeek! I'm worried I'll look silly!)
Yes! These 30min classes are designed for absolute beginners and all ages. You don't need to be bendy to do yoga because yoga makes you bendy, and that's the point of practicing it. 

CAN I COME ALONG CASUALLY?
Yes. The price for a casual class is $20. 

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Comfy, stretchy clothing that allows you to move around easily - your walking clothes are perfect. There's no need for a lycra leotard... but by all means come along in your best 80's outfit should you be so inclined!

ARE THERE YOGA MATS PROVIDED?
Yes, I provide lovely comfy, sticky yoga mats. You're also welcome to bring your own mat if you prefer. 

SHOULD I EAT BEFORE THE CLASS?
It's best to arrive at class on an empty stomach, so please try to have your last big meal 2 - 3 hours before before your class starts.
