  • Finding Balance Under Stress – Saturday 2 December 1-5pm

    A Cultivating Emotional Balance Based Workshop

    feather and stone balance

    We all encounter periods of stress in our lives.  Every time we are feeling stressed we are feeling an emotion. Given this fact, the most sustainable way to manage stress is to build emotional awareness and create wise choices for how we act emotionally.

    This introductory workshop is designed to give you an overview of CEB and introduce some techniques to regulate emotions that lead to stress.

    Through emotional regulation:

    • We can identify and lessen the frequency and intensity of destructive emotions and limit the damage they cause by way of behavior, speech and thought.
    • We can increase the frequency and intensity of constructive emotions and bring beneficial outcomes for ourselves and others.
    • We can prevent, avoid, or prepare for strong emotional triggers.

    These concepts and practices take some time to learn and integrate into daily life.  This workshop is designed to introduce you to the basic concepts.  Further workshops, courses and retreats in 2018 will combine CEB with yoga asana (see Facebook page for details as they are announced) and explore these techniques in a more in depth way.

    Saturday 2 December 2017, 1-5pm

  • Eco Jade Yoga Mats

    Orange, pink, purple, turquoise, light blue, dark blue, black

    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.

    Cost $110.  

    Email me your preferred colour and pick up date.

  • Six week beginner course – Thursday 26 Oct 6-7pm & Sat 28 Oct 9:45 to 10:45am


    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.  These courses are structured to give you an overview of foundational yoga practice.

    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.

    • Learn the foundational postures of hatha yoga
    • Instructions and adjustments (mostly verbal) are given to bring safe and correct alignment into the postures
