Yoga for Active Bodies
Kenpo Karate room, Oliver Street
Whether you exercise or play sport regularly, or get active in your garden, keeping your body active helps keep you healthy on many levels. However, our sports and other activities can also lead to imbalances, strains and pains, or tightness.
This yoga class has a different focus each week, to help 'rebalance' your body with stretching, strengthening and/or recovery sequences. It targets the most common areas that get tight or weak due to physical activity, especially the core, hips, leg muscles, spine and shoulders. It is not overly strenuous, and you'll leave feeling looser, more relaxed and ready to face the week ahead.
Align & Flow
St Andrews church hall
29a Victoria Street
Align & Flow features a balanced range of poses that we link together in flowing sequences and moving with our breath. This is also known as a 'vinyasa' style class. We also work in greater detail on the alignment of specific poses to build strengthen, endurance, flexibility and body awareness. The class format normally features a 'Sun Salute' inspired warm up, standing poses, and then a selection of back extensions, hip openers, forward bends and/or twisting poses, followed by relaxation.
Align & Flow is suitable for all levels, as poses can be tailored to individual need.
Morning Yoga at Tamahere - NEW CLASSES!
Tuesday mornings from 2 November (Covid levels permitting)
Tamahere Community Centre
If you are local to Tamahere, this is for you! You can now book in for one of these great morning options: 7.00-8.00am Rise & Shine, or 8.30-9.30am Align & Flow - perhaps drop the kids next door at school first and then join me for an hour focused on your own wellbeing.
Both great options to start your day with intention, focus and movement.
Bookings are required for these class, use the link below to book or enquire.
Kenpo karate room, Oliver Street.
As the name suggests, this is the class to come to for a 'gentle' yoga experience. This popular class features mostly seated poses, focusing more on gentle mobility and stretching than it does on strength or endurance.
Working through all your tight spots, such as the neck, shoulders, spine and hips, whilst taking care of our joints, with some balance and core poses as well. We keep focused on our breath and finish with relaxation. A great 'mindful movement' experience.

My classes offering a friendly, welcoming atmosphere without judgement or expectations.
Suitable for ALL levels
The above classes are suitable for all levels of experience and ability. For new students, here are a couple of guidelines to consider, especially in you haven't done yoga before:
- How mobile do you need to be for these classes? As a guideline I ask can you easily go from standing to sitting and back to standing unaided? Can you be on hands and knees?. This is a general minimum requirement for these yoga classes.
- If you are new to yoga or want to ease in to the practice, I suggest starting with a Gentle Yoga class, which is the most accessible. If you are comfortable there and looking for more challenge, then you could look to the other class options.
The more you come along the easier it gets. If you're unsure, please contact me and I'll be happy to have a chat.
