YOGA North Hobart ... a space dedicated to the teaching and practice of yoga and meditation.

Yoga is a balanced system of physical, mental & spirtual techniques which have been practiced for over 5000 years.  Our experienced teachers draw from the living wisdom of their yogic traditions, which have been adapted to meet the needs of today.  Our classes aim for the student to be able to integrate this wisdom into their daily lives, from physical wellbeing & stress reduction, to deep insight, inspiration & self-knowledge. 

The teachers at the studio specialise in styles of integral yoga; a wholistic approach to yoga incorporating the practices of postures, pranayama (breathing techniques), relaxation and meditation to nourish the whole being ... body, mind & soul. OM

YOGA North Hobart is an intimate space, and we keep class sizes at a level at which each student can be acknowledged and observed.  Each class is adapted to the group, building on the skills and practices gained throughout each course.  Students are invited to work at their own level, increasing or reducing the challenge of a practice where appropriate; each student's innate wisdom is respected, and we encourage the development of this inner awareness.

An integrative yoga class will explore the areas of:

  • initial relaxation or meditation - to settle the mind & body before practice
  • asana (yoga postures) - to which the majority of the class is dedicated
  • pranayama (breathing techniques) - to connect with the breath, relax the mind & induce a deeper level of body/mind connection
  • meditation or guided deep relaxation

Please contact the relevant teachers for information about any of the classes. For general questions please phone Roslyn on 439 995 655.
