New Class: Yin Yoga and Myofascial Release ~ Starts Wed 7 Feb 9:15-10:15am ~ East Vic Park Community Centre ~
This class is slightly different to our regular yin yoga practice, as we will incorporate the spiky ball and foam roller to induce deep release within the body, and perhaps the mind too. The aim is to have you leave the class with more freedom, movement and release in your body, and a deeply relaxed and calm mind.
This class will be a deeply relaxing and inwardly focused practice. Yin Yoga works into the connective tissues of the body, with a focus on hip and spine mobility. The practice gives us time to slow down, connect with and explore the depths of the body and mind.
Yin lends itself very well to the practice of mindfulness and introspection so we can transform our practice into a moving meditation and reap the benefits of relaxation, sustained attentional balance and sharpness of mind, as well as cultivating a supple body in a state of ease.
Suitable for complete beginners to experienced yoga practitioners.
Cost: Casual attendance welcome or regular class pass can be used. Cost details for regular classes can be found here.
Location: Victoria Park Community Centre – 246 Gloucester St, East Victoria Park (carpark entrance from Kent St)

A good yoga mat can greatly assist your yoga practice. These high quality, environmentally friendly yoga mats are made from natural rubber and offer excellent grip, traction, cushioning and resilience. It is my yoga mat of choice. I’ve had one for years and it gives me grounded firm support, whilst being soft enough for floor postures.
Email me your preferred colour and pick up date.
This course is for every body – those new to yoga and those that wish to continue to explore the foundations of the yoga practice. If you have had a break from yoga, this course will help to get you back into the routine of a regular practice.
Many students find they like the pace of the beginners class and choose to continue enrolling. The courses are rolling one after the other with varying focuses, so if you miss a class you will get a similar class the next time the class rolls around within the six weeks.

This course will focus on relaxation and strength building postures, pranayama techniques and meditations, to open your body, and bring clarity, alertness and calm to the mind.
