When and Where?

Classes are held during the class term dates listed. Bookings are essential as I offer small classes, so places are limited. You can check availability and book a class using the booking tool above or contact me. The yoga studio is situated at 294A Napier Street, Bendigo, opposite Lake Weeroona, (down the service road behind Bendigo Animal Hospital).

Guided Meditation:

A meditation class is a great way to further enhance your yoga practice or just enjoy the many benefits of meditation. The class will provide you with the opportunity to tap into and further develop a quiet stillness within. I aim for you to experience a sense of calm and peace through my guided meditations and the power of sound and vibration through singing bowls, tanpura (Indian instrument) and more. Just like the Yoga classes I aim to nourish your body, mind and spirit with the Guided Meditation.

The class is suitable for everybody and open to both women and men. I understand that sitting can be a concern for some so I encourage you to sit in a way that is comfortable for you. Walls are great to lean on if you need back support. If sitting doesn’t suit you then you may like to lay down. Feeling comfortable and supported is important to enhance your meditation experience. If you have a favourite item to sit or lay on like a cushion, stool or mat, please bring it with you to class. You may also like a shawl to drape around or over you. I have mats, blankets, shawls, bolsters and meditation stools available for your use.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Who is the yoga class for? 

I have designed the yoga classes to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of women, to be energising, nourishing and restorative. Through the practice of Pranayama (breathing techniques), Asana (postures) and Meditation, balance is restored within. If a posture is challenging for someone I will always seek to provide modification where possible to suit the needs of the individual. Where modification is unsuitable you will be encouraged to use visualisation. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. There are no pre-requisites to join a class as they are suitable for ladies familiar or experienced in the practice of yoga and beginners. The advantage of a small class is I am able to be mindful of each individual supporting you to feel part of the group. Together we care and support each other. It really is a class you can let go and relax in.

Holistic Gentle Yoga & Meditation:

Through the guidance of the Eight Limbs of Yoga we will explore gentle postures (Asana), breath awareness (Pranayama), Meditation (Dhyana) including Yoga Nidra. You will be encouraged to focus on the flow of your breath throughout the class as this creates a meditative practice. By using the breath as your guide and tuning into and listening to your body’s needs encourages a body, mind and Spirit connection. It is through this deeper connection balance is restored within us. The practice of Yoga and Meditation establishes equilibrium within to allow you to shine your inner light. Meditation practiced regularly has the ability to alter the wiring of the brain to establish new pathways, along with it a greater sense of peace.

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is a relaxation practice that promotes the withdrawal of the senses (Pratyahara) from external stimuli to maintain a quiet stillness within while our consciousness remains alert through concentration (Dharana), known as the state between sleep and wakefulness. This promotes a deep state of physical, mental and emotional relaxation within the body and mind, leaving you feeling calm, refreshed and mentally alert. Known as the yogic sleep, a twenty minute Yoga Nidra is said to be equivalent to two hours sleep.

A very popular part of the class. In Yoga Nidra you will lay on your back in Shavasana, snuggled under a blanket or shawl with an eye pillow draped over your eyes. This is your time to rest and restore.
