A Balanced Practice Vinyasa
Mondays 6:00pm -7:15pm
Liz’s A Balanced Practice Yoga classes give students the tools to evolve not only their asana practice but to cultivate insight into the heart of the yoga tradition. Rather than a set system, A Balanced Practice is an interweaving of different perspectives which helps to keep the body and mind fluid and adaptable to change. These classes encourage students to open the physical sheaths of the body, witness thought patterns and develop a great capacity to sense and feel.
A Balanced Practice Yoga classes are intelligent, innovative classes that are powerful and therapeutically balanced, blending yogic philosophy and insight into the energetic body with the subtle or “secret” tools of yoga . These classes offer each student an integrated , peaceful and expansive inner experience of breath, body and mind, cultivating vibrant mental and physical health.
Suitable for people with back/neck pain and recovering from injury and those wanting to improve their health and stress levels. Beginners are welcome.

A Balanced Practice Vinyasa Intermediate/Advanced New
Mondays 7:30- 8:45pm
Take your practice to the next level! Learn a more challenging series of postures and advance your practice in an energising group environment. Our Progressive class is the most dynamic evening class on our timetable. Not recommended for total beginners but those with a regular practice. Within the structure of the sequences you will also work on inversions such as handstands and headstands, deeper backbends and more complex , challenging variations of postures , pranayama and meditation.
Yoga helps to develop strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness, increase energy, and enhance the ability to deal with stress. When students undertake a more regular practice, it’s important they know how to respond to the body as it is in the moment, and not be attached to where they would like it to be in the future or where it was in the past. In this way, students learn to generate energy rather than block it, with the focus on meditative flow, to ultimately create a practice that gives the best benefits long term. We also recommend committing to at least one other class per week to fully benefit from this class’s progressive nature.
Tuesdays 10:00am – 11:15am

Wednesdays 9:30 am – 10:45 am
A gently paced weekly morning yoga session for people who want physical strength, health and flexibility without doing strenuous sequences of postures. Based on classical hatha yoga and informed by physiotherapy and modern yoga therapy, these classes are suitable for regular yoga practitioners as well as people new to yoga.
After a very long absence from yoga (36 years) I decided to take it up again. I joined Liz’s class for over 40′s. Am absolutely loving it…. the location couldn’t be more perfect. We practice yoga looking out over the surf as it crashes onto Warriewood Beach! No need for music…. Sound of the surf is beautiful. The classes are small and intimate which gives us the chance to get individual attention when practicing the various poses. Since joining 6 months ago I notice my strength and flexibility have improved under the sensitive teaching of Liz.

Seasonal Yin Yoga
Leah’s Yin Yoga classes are 90 mins of pure healing nourishment. Lay out your mat opposite the ocean and let time slow down. By moon and candlelight, Leah guides you deeply into your physical body through releases of your fascia (your connective tissue) with long held mild poses, intended to allow your body and breath to let go of tension, elongate and ease. Long held stretches are particular good for sports people and those with joint tightness or inflammation. If you’re not sure about trying Yin, just ask Liz or Leah and they can tell you about it’s scientific benefits!
Every Yin Class is mindfully sequenced around the Chinese Medicine meridian lines, making connection to particular organs and energy centres, releasing, renewing and moving stagnant energy (chi) to improve your organ function, physical mobility and vitality.
Yin yoga helps you harness the essence of emotions and settle into mental clarity within the stillness and slowness of the practice.
Leah is a Reiki practitioner and body worker and her (and optional) hands on assists are not short of amazing!
No experience is necessary yin is great for all ages, all sizes and anyone who wants to feel nourished, calm and released.
Yin is a great gateway into meditation for those who don’t “sit”.
