We are fully equipped with props (bolsters, blocks, straps, blankets, chairs & eye pillows), to encourage a safe and enjoyable practice within your own limitations.
Classes combine balanced sequences of postures with beneficial breathing techniques, calming relaxation and meditation to unite body, mind and spirit. I truly believe that anybody can practice yoga- it is just a matter of finding a practice that works for you and that you love. I am passionate about providing safe, supportive & joyful classes that meet you where you are and that help move you toward greater balance, peace, health and wellbeing.
DYNAMIC VINYASA: I teach alignment based hatha vinyasa. This is a flowing practice where movement is linked with the breath, with attention given to correct alignment in postures. Classes are designed to deeply stretch, strengthen, cleanse and tone the whole body. Beneficial breathing techniques and calming relaxation are included to help quieten the mind.
GENTLE HATHA: This class moves at a slower pace and focuses on longer held stretching. It includes beneficial breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation practices, restorative poses and a nice long savasana (relaxation). Suitable for everyone. Beginners, pregnant women and anyone recovering from injury or illness may find this practice beneficial.
RESTORATIVE: This class moves at an even slower pace and combines long held restorative postures, beneficial breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation and yoga nidra/ deep relaxation. Soothing and quietening, yet deeply powerful. This type of practice has the ability to calm the central nervous system, helping your own internal healing processes to work and may also help to relieve the effects of stress. Amazing at any time, but especially if you feel stressed or exhausted or if you are recovering from illness, injury or major life changes.
HATHA (IYENGAR style) w/ LOUISE: Emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in asana and focus on breath work/ pranayama. Props are used to this end. Classes will leave you calm and centred. If you are an Iyengar yoga fan, you will love this practice!

RESTORATIVE DEEP DIVE SESSIONS
Join us on the first Sunday of each month for two hours of bliss, all for yourself. We use props to support ourselves in long held restorative yoga poses, explore a variety of beneficial breathing techniques, practice meditation and enjoy a half hour yoga nidra. Through the practice of restorative yoga the body’s systems may come back into balance-energy is enhanced, the nervous system quietens and layers of tension melt away. Deepest relaxation- so delicious. Mmmmmm!
Investment: $35 including chai & treat to follow.
These workshops book out fast. To secure your mat pre payment (direct deposit or cash) is required.
On the final Friday of each month, we will explore the benefits of working with high quality, high potency essential oils. The focus will be on empowering and educating you to use them in the first line of defence- as a way to take charge of your own health and wellbeing naturally. We will also explore how to use them to enhance your spiritual practice. Come prepared to inhale deeply! Fun & interactive. No cost :)
I am available to teach private yoga if you have specific conditions and want to work more powerfully to remedy those, or if you want to create your own small group session at a convenient time for you.
Investment: $75 per hour + $15 per additional person.
I am available to travel to your workplace and provide corporate yoga, tailored to your exact requirements.

Investment: $150 for 1 hour/ $175 for 90 minutes/ $200 for 2 hours.
