Beginner/general level students


If you have not completed an introductory course or attended the introductory level drop in classes for a period of time, we ask that you go to the new students timetable and find an option that will work for you. Introductory level class/course attendance looks after your learning and ensures the focus is on Yoga and not just movement. Understanding the context of the practice is critical if students are to engage safely and effectively.

Beginner and General level students timetable 

20 classes for $250: 10 week COURSES 

We are offering beginner and general level courses which comprise 2 classes per week.  Vera teaches the beginner course and Polly teaches the general level course.  The next courses will commence week of 14 October and will finish week of 18 December.

During the 10 weeks it is possible to miss 3 classes and make these up in the Tuesday evening or Thursday evening 6pm Beginner class time.  Make up classes must be taken by the end of the 10 week term.

The beginner course is suitable for anyone who has competed an 8 week introductory course.  Two classes per week helps to establish the mental discipline necessary to commence and sustain a home practice.  Attending a course is the most supportive way to learn because sequences are progressive.  The body responds to routine and as we gain confidence in asana, we are more inclined to practice.  Classes are held on a Wedesday night at 5.30pm and on Saturday morning at 7.00am. The Wednesday night class has a focus on the development of shoulder stand and head stand, and the poses that relate specifically to these two important asana. The Saturday morning classes focus on standing poses and learning the parivrtta, or twisting versions of the standing poses.  Twisting poses help the spine and improve energy levels.  During the 10 week course it is possible to miss 3 classes and make these up in the Tuesday evening or Thursday evening 6pm Beginner class time.  Make up classes must be taken by the end of the 10 week term.

The course for General level students, taught by Polly is on Monday and Wednesday nights at 6.00 - 7.30pm.   The Monday night class is active asana with an empahsis on twisting standing poses, backbends, balancings and more advanced seated poses.  The Wednesday night classes focus on the development of head stand variations, longer timings shoulder stands with variations, restorative poses and pranayama.  In the process of Self study (Svadhyaya) the asana practice becomes an opportunity to examine our mental and emotional habits.  In meeting our fears and desires we are challenged to develop honesty, compassion and contentment.  We learn to become available to the process of change - being changed from within through waking the energy of creation that is often dormant or supressed within the embodiment.


It is time for the school to offer courses for those who are ready to engage in a deeper level of practice.  The combination of the active class and the restorative and pranayama practices, along with variations in head stand and shoulder stand, reflects the intent of Sutra 1.12 which pertains to the Twin Pillars of abhyasa and vairagya.  These are THE YOGA PRACTICES:  Discipline and renunciation.  They are the means to still the fluctuations of consciousness.

“When the waves of consciousness are stilled and silenced, they can no longer distort the true expression of the soul. Revealed in his/her own nature, the radiant seer abides in her/his own grandeur.” BKS Iyengar commentary Sutra 1.3

We still offer  single class, 5,10 or 15 class card attendance options
