Holistic Gentle Yoga for Women
Hello beautiful Souls, welcome to Gentle Spirit Yoga ~ Holistic Gentle Yoga for Women.
I invite you to join me and a wonderful group of women as we explore all aspects of Yoga with a holistic and gentle approach in a supportive and nurturing environment. Classes are small which provides you with the opportunity to explore, accept and own your own unique brilliance. Experience movement, meditation and the power of the breath as well as the sound and vibration of the crystal singing bowl, tanpura and buffalo drum. Focus and quiet your busy mind as you gently strengthen your body, while honouring and nourishing your spirit to Restore Balance Within.
Yoga is a life long journey and I hope that you will make Gentle Spirit Yoga a part of yours.

“As a beginner to yoga, I was a little nervous about taking classes. Fortunately for me, Gentle Spirit Yoga has been a great place for me to start. Gwynn is very patient and considerate, meets me where I am, and is very encouraging. I have already noticed an increase in my flexibility and strength, as well as feeling more relaxed and calm after learning relaxation and breathing techniques. I can highly recommend taking classes at Gentle Spirit Yoga. You won’t regret it.” ~ Keren
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the Gentle Spirit Yoga classes for the last couple of years. Gwynn goes out of her way to make everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. Even though I had not done yoga before and was now retired and overweight, I really feel the benefits of the stretching and relaxation and leave every class glad I made the effort.” ~ Cheryl
“In Gentle Spirit Yoga, Gwynn provides a nurturing and safe space for the practice of yoga. Her yoga teaching encompasses every level of yoga from low impact relaxation and revitalising poses to more powerful core strengthening poses. I find her meditation process at the end of each session particularly powerful and soothing at the same time, setting me up perfectly for the week ahead in the stressful world. My time in Gwynn’s yoga sessions grants me timeout from the day to day grind as well as teaching me new tools for peaceful meditation, coping techniques and strengthening my body for each week to come. Thanks Gwynn for providing such a wonderful and safe experience in Gentle Spirit Yoga!” ~ Amara
“I’ve done other exercise classes in the past but never straight Yoga. I was a little hesitant to try Yoga as it seemed in the too hard basket for me and my body. After the first class I was hooked – Gwynn’s GSY class is now the highlight of my week. I leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and empowered by what I can do. Gwynn is a patient, attentive, informative and accommodating teacher and I love all the different elements of the class. I would recommend Gentle Spirit Yoga to anyone!” ~ Kat
“I was encouraged to attend Gentle Spirit Yoga last year by a friend, I am so glad I took her advice. My experience with GSY has been very rewarding, as I suffer with lower back pain & Scoliosis, I needed a therapy that was gentle yet effective. I am a middle aged person and my thoughts of Yoga was “its for the younger generation” but I soon changed my mind I was very comfortable with my ability to accomplish my moves. There are day’s when I am still not as pliable as I’d like and that is fine, Gwynn always encourages us to only do what is comfortable for OUR bodies at the time. Gwynn’s attentive nature and serene presence has you coming away walking taller, feeling a lot more relaxed than when you first walked in and upon leaving the class, you even have a spring in your step.” ~ Deb
“My journey with Multiple Sclerosis started three & a half years ago. I find Gentle Spirit Yoga helps my Mind, Body & Spirit to better manage my MS symptoms & the challenges I face living with a chronic illness everyday.
Yoga helps to improve my balance, flexibility, strength & range of motion to reduce falls & sprains due to having difficulty walking & balance issues associated with MS. I have muscle spasms in my legs & find yoga makes it easier to cope with the tight, stiff & sore muscles that MS causes. Yoga gives me a much needed higher energy level as I struggle with MS fatigue daily.
The Deep Breathing we do in Yoga helps my mental clarity, concentration & memory as I have cognitive issues associated with MS. Oxygen is so important for life, we breathe every single moment of everyday. Deep Breathing really calms my anxiety, reduces stress & increases mindfulness which has taught me to focus on today & not worry about what the future may or may not hold for me with MS.
Gwynn is so lovely & helpful. I talk to her about my disability & she guides me to adapt the stretches & postures to suit my abilities on that day as my MS symptoms vary from day to day, hour to hour.
Yoga not only benefits me physically, but it helps me to be strong mentally & emotionally. It gives me a positive outlook on life, has taught me to be calm even in difficult & stressful situations & to live in the present moment.
Some days I don’t want to go anywhere, including yoga but I force myself to go unless the fatigue is that bad that I just can’t. After yoga, I am always glad that I went as it gives me a burst of energy & aliveness! I feel happy with myself for doing something I know is really good for my health & I always have a feeling of well being when I walk out of Yoga.
If you’re thinking of trying Yoga, I highly recommend Gentle Spirit Yoga.
Yoga is for every(body).” ~ Heather
