ARE BEGINNERS WELCOME?

Absolutely! The classes are structured to roll with the seasons.  At the commencement of each term we have a new focus, new postures and movements to facilitate harmony within your body and mind. Each class is offered to suit the needs of the students within the group.

DO I NEED TO ENROL OR CAN I DROP IN CASUALLY?

Burwood Community Yoga courses are extremely popular and class numbers are limited to ensure personalised attention.  You need to book your place for the 10 week term to secure your place each week.  Unfortunately there is no room for casual or drop in students when the classes are full.  Please contact Kelli to enquire about available spots in the classes.

CAN I CLAIM YOGA CLASSES ON MY PRIVATE HEALTH FUND?

WHAT’S JAPANESE YOGA?

Japanese Yoga is a fun and dynamic form of yoga therapy that integrates traditional Hatha Yoga with meridian based healing arts of Japan based on the Five Element Theory (Yin and Yang principles). The human body is made of the same five primary elements that exist in nature – Wood (spring), Fire (summer), Earth (late summer), Metal (autumn) & Water (winter). Each element relates to different organs, energy systems, physical and psychological aspects of who we are. In class we access the meridians (energy pathways in the body that relate to each organ) through particular movements and postures. This form of therapeutic yoga improves the functioning and structure of the body by correcting qi flow to harmonise the body, mind and spirit.
