A yoga practice can nourish and support you throughout every stage of your life.
A practice of yoga generally starts out as being a 'deliberate' distraction. We often want to grow some discipline around certain behaviours, thoughts and emotions because there are parts of ourselves we would like to change. We need a way to start working toward those changes and we need a 'distraction' from the old habits. Yoga is excellent for this as it decodes old patterns so that we gain insight into our Selves. Yoga re-patterns, or creates 'stacked associations' in our nervous system that tie us to our new and nourishing thoughts and behaviours. We begin to rewire ourselves by imprinting a new set of behavious. These changes can be as straight forward as wanting to improve our posture or as complex as breaking an addiction.
The school offers a 5 week program of classes an an incentive to get people started. These classes are taught by trainee teachers who are undersupervision.
Almost all students new to the Iyengar style of Hatha yoga attend by booking a term of these classes. We have classes suitable for students of all ages and degrees of fitness and health. If it is not possible to attend in one of these classes, our Sunday afternoon class operates as an open level drop in class for new students. The cost is $22 cash payment.
A term is 5 weeks long.
Students have the option of attending a program of either 1 class per week or 2 classes per week.
2 classes per week for 5 weeks = $66.00 ($6.60 per class)
1 class per week for 5 weeks = $44.00 ($8.80 per class)
This program of classes is suitable for anyone of general health.

The range of people who enjoy this level of class include people in their mid 60's those in their 70's and some into their 80's. People in their late 50's and early 60's who have not been lovers of exercise in their younger years, or who are well now, though have lived with a lot of stress and illness, also enjoy this level of class. We call this level of classes 'seniors'. These classes are great for those who want to 'use it and not lose it'.

The culture of learning highlights the classical method of hatha yoga whereby (postures) are integrated within a discipline of meditation. The intention is that the physical body act as an instrument through which we can experience clarity and wisdom. Students develop great internal peace from Yoga. Students experience improvements in strength, concentration and relaxation.
