Welcome to Mind Yoga Studio. Below is a list of the classes we offer for your exploration and enjoyment. Whether you are looking to challenge yourself physically or mentally, or both, there is a class for you. Or perhaps you are looking to learn the art of being, to quiet the anxious mind and start letting go of what you don’t need, there is also a class for you. Start learning just how incredible you really are.
At Mind Yoga Studio you are free to decide what yoga will mean for you. It can be a physical, a mental, or a spiritual practice. It can be all of these things at once, or it can be one of these things at a time. The beauty of this art lies in your own interpretation. As a mission statement for my studio and teaching, I could refer to the simple old adage; be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it! But I came up with my own, if you hover your cursor over the slide show on my home page you will see some words, read them forward first, then start with the last word first and read again. How do you want to experience life? You’re the boss. Use your mind, and yet…. Mind your use.

Traditional Hatha: (Beginners/Improvers)
These are beginning yoga poses held over a longer period of time and are suitable for anyone who has never done yoga before. The class is also suitable for anyone who is particularly stiff from participation in sports, who has little or no yoga experience. Or sometimes, if you just feel particularly stiff in general. Arm balances and inversions will be introduced only when the student is ready. The length of time the poses are held combined with diaphragmatic breathing leave you feeling deeply relaxed. To finish, some guided relaxation will leave the participant with a strong sense of peace.
Hatha Core: (Beginners/Improvers)
This class will be in the same format as the Traditional Hatha, but will focus intensely on core/ abdominal training for a good portion of the class. If you are in need of core strengthening, these classes are for you. Suitable for anyone with no prior experience.
Traditional Hatha: (Traditional Hatha: Inter/ Advanced)
A wide range of poses will be used and held for a longer period of time to enjoy the maximum stretch. Careful attention to technique and alignment will be practiced. If you have been doing a continuous yoga practice for 5 years, or if you want more of a challenge, this class will suit. This will be primarily a physical practice and will incorporate arm balances and inversions.
Hatha Core: (Inter/ Advanced)
A good portion of the class will be dedicated to abdominal training and is suitable for those who have a working experience in core and flexibility training. This will be a physical practice combined with guided relaxation and various yogic breathing techniques. The body and mind will then be receptive to rejuvenating deep sleep.
Yoga For Sports
A quicker moving class than traditional hatha that consists of poses to stretch/strengthen the major muscle groups athletes use most. Athletes doing yoga can expect better performance due to increased joint range of motion, increased concentration, increased VO2 max and injury prevention. These are only a handful of positive effects that occur. The participant should leave feeling relaxed and refreshed, physically and mentally renewed.
Vinyasa Flow: (Inter/ Advanced)
The series of poses used will be based on the Ashtanga Primary Series by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, and various other flow sequences. This is an intense flow class that is not for beginners. A solid background in yoga practice and general fitness is advised. Not suitable for anyone with injuries to the shoulder, arm, wrist or hand. Ujjayi breath and other breathing techniques may be used.
This is suitable for all mummies to be. Learn ways to alleviate common discomforts of pregnancy and help yourself get a good night’s sleep. Help keep your body and mind strong for labour and delivery and have silent time to bond with baby and observe the miracle that is life. Have a chance to connect with other mums to be and take time out to nurture your own needs.
Postnatal Yoga: (Postnatal Yoga)
Much attention to the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles will help you re-tone and shape your body after delivery. Traditional yoga poses that focus on strengthening will be essential as you create support for your pelvis and explore your alignment to your new (old) center of gravity.
Non-Directive Meditation (Non-Directive Meditation)
Here we will explore the emotions and feelings and desires that enter our consciousness. This is a time to be and gain insight into recurring thought/behavior patterns and answers to pressing questions. We will learn to listen on a higher sensory level and learn to distinguish between thoughts that are conducive to our growth and those that are not. This class offers an essential foundation for practicing directive meditation by teaching us to detach from negativity and learn introspection.
At the present time this type of meditation will be done only after full asana practice. Physical exertion itself will be used to channel concentration where it is desired throughout the asanas (mindfulness). Meditation without physical movement will begin with very short concentration periods since intense focus is difficult and must be done in a certain manner for the health of the practitioner. (The Saturday class at 11am is the only class where this will take place and you will have the option to stay for meditation or leave after asana practice).
