General Kundalini

This is a general session working on different aspects of the body each week and combines three styles of yoga; Kundalini, Hatha and Yin. Kundalini yoga uses breathwork and moving postures to stimulate organs, glands and chakras, while building stamina. Hatha yoga stretches and lengthens the body while Yin yoga deeply opens joints and releases tension. Each class has breathwork, postures, relaxation and a brief meditation. This yoga works well for people who need to de-stress, build some core strength and can be adapted for beginners or experienced yogis.

Joints, core and restore

A gentle class focusing on joint mobility and strengthening the lower back and abdominal muscles. It is ideal for beginners or those recovering from injuries or surgery. BYO mat please.

Acu-Kundalini

Acu-yoga combines Kundalini and Yin yoga with acupressure to clear meridian pathways and release stuck stress in the body. This is a therapeutic form of yoga which can assist with improving many health issues. Each class involves stretching, pressing acupressure points, relaxation, meditation and occasionally vocal toning for the organs.

Mon: 9-10am 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton

Kundalini Nourish

Ease into the week with restorative yoga from the Kundalini tradition. Slow, flowing movements release tension and support healthy organ function. Then bolsters and cushions are used to deeply open our bodies with minimal effort. Pranayama, yoga nidra and meditation complete the nourishing experience so you feel refreshed for the week ahead. Please book in as space is limited.

Mon: 7-8pm 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton

Pussy Power – Yoga to create happy and healthy women 

This class addresses the neural wiring in our pelvises and our brains to restore health and happiness. It is suitable for all ages and anyone who identifies as a woman. It is beneficial particularly for those who have depression/ongoing stress, an unhappy sexual history, hormonal imbalance, or pelvic floor issues. Those who have low libido or feel a bit bored with their sex lives, or just plain mystified with whatever goes on “down there”. In fact if you call this “down there” then you really need to come along! A deeply nourishing and supportive class sharing simple skills from the Kundalini, Daoist and Tantric yoga traditions so that you can learn to practice at home. Please book in each week. Also look to the events page for ongoing Pussy Power workshops.

Wed: 7-8pm 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton

Yoga for MS/Parkinsons/CFS/Auto-Immune Conditions

A class to address posture issues, breathing and simple chair yoga to build strength and energise.  This 90 minute class uses meditation, visualisation and simple poses to explore neural pathways and  rekindle body sensations. Each week we explore new strategies to make life easier for balance and improved movement. Please book in each week.

Wed: 10.30am-midday 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton

Perinatal Yoga

This class fosters a woman centred birth and pregnancy. I love active birth and each class works towards this with “birth circuit training” a series of gentle and simple things I’ve developed to keep your labour progressing even while resting. The class also works with breath, sound and stretches to help ease all those aches and pains.

Please book in as space is limited

You can also book in to have a class with your chosen birth partner present so they can be trained up to help you. They can be your voice, your advocate and set of muscles to hold you up in any position you feel helps. (They might need to do some strength training too!)

Friday: 11am- midday 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton

Move into Meditation –  First Monday evening of the month

This class eases us into a more comfortable meditation experience. Gentle stretches to make sitting more comfortable and how to find your meditation seat. Simple techniques to shift beyond the physical limitations of our everyday breath. We explore meditation from the Kundalini Yoga tradition and simple silence. This class offers meditation from a seasonal perspective so that you can cultivate a practice in tune with the elements. Beginners welcome! Please book in to reserve your cushion.

First Monday of the month: 5.30-6.30pm 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton

Red Tent Gathering for women of all ages –  Around the New Moon each month

The Red Tent is a place for women to gather, rest, meditate and just be themselves. Each gathering involves a bit of meditation, some sharing (if you wish), setting an intention, perhaps learning something new and then a simple feast. All ages and all stages of life are welcome. Babies that are being breastfed are welcome so their Mum can get some nourishment and support. Bookings are essential.

Around New Moon each month: 7-9pm 75 Brooklyn Road Carterton Next gathering is Friday April 5th

Private Classes

Mon-Fri on request

Private classes are a great way to begin or deepen your yoga experience. You might also want to consider this if you have any health concerns, are recovering from injuries or if you have any burning questions about any aspect of yoga. You might regularly attend group classes but require some help starting a home practice for yourself.

A private class with me may also use tools from my other healing modalities of homeopathy, flower essences or acupressure self care.

I offer individualised yogic prescriptions of postures, medical meditations and pranayama for physical/mental/spiritual health so that you can continue to nurture your well being as a part of your daily life.
