FOUNDATIONS OF YOGA

Monday 5:30pm

Map Pin: www.yogiurls.com/map

Join the wonderful Melissa Wheeler for this alignment-based, gentle workshop class by the river, to invite you into an even healthier version of yourself.

 

This drop-in class is for anyone wishing to revisit the foundations of Pathanjali's teachings of Yoga. These twilight classes start you off at an easy pace to aid you through your asanas (postures) in a way that is compassionate to your body. This is of particular importance when first learning or returning to yoga after some time away. Like all our classes, we offer yoga in an consensual way, inviting you to access ways to explore your body without projecting a yoga experience (or personality) on you. Our teachers live yoga and are initiated in traditional Hatha after receiving training in India and teaching in Australia.

 

Breathe and let go for a moment or two, by the river, with the sun drifting off to your left. Let the yoga do its job as we honor the simplicity of an internalized practice, outside in pubic. Feel your worries melt away as you reach Shavasana and complete relaxation by the river, or use the class as a good workout for the evening ahead.

TWILIGHT HATHA

Wednesday 5.30pm

Map Pin: www.yogiurls.com/map

Get out in the fresh air for these cozy evening classes with Indian/Himalayan trained Yoga teacher Stefania Galliero, who leads classes with love at the centre. Stef (and Matt) offered the following ethos on yoga: "Yoga is an act of love, not a transactional movement."

Our yoga is about meeting you where you at, gently challenging and exploring new areas and movements to evoke more peace and feeling of well-being by the end of it. Our Yoga group is easy to access and come along to whenever you feel like giving it a go.

 

These classes are designed to build on the foundations delivered on a Monday to give you that mid week space of rejuvenation and to open up the body, ergo strengthening and relaxing it. We have mats, blocks, straps and blankets if you need to assist in making postures more comfortable and accessible.

MORNING FLOW BY UWA

Thursday 9:00am

Map Pin: www.yogiurls.com/map3

This outdoor Vinyasa class is for students and locals living near Crawley and North-Western suburbs of Perth. Bounce back and celebrate the week with friends in Yoga. Join Matt Yap (RYT500) for 1 hour of traditional, morning flow Hatha, looking out over our River near UWA.

 

Experience yoga as a guided exercise and wellness tool or as a self exploration of each posture directing your focus with your breath and cultivating ease through shape-making. Yoga is (among many things) a celebration of life, feeling good and experiencing freedom. In this class you will move through a wide variety of asanas rhythmically, at a kind pace. Enjoy the shade of the trees and experience what a bit of fresh air and yoga on the grass can do for you.

 

Our yoga serves for everybody's benefit. Access donation rates (no minimal amount) if you are on income support, a student or a senior citizen - complete this form here: www.yogiurls.com/donation.

ASHTANGA PRIMARY SERIES

Sunday 8:00am

Map Pin: www.yogiurls.com/map

Join Nicole Lamb (RYT 500) out in the fresh air for a grounding, energising Ashtanga Flow practice. The class takes place October - June, facing the Swan River, on the grass at Sir James Mitchell Park overlooking Perth City.

Learn this popularized, Vinyasa sequence of asanas. Receive guidance using core muscular and energetic locks, drishti (focused-gaze), correct alignment, breath-work and a deep commitment to self-love. Sunday morning Ashtanga classes are the most dynamic and popular classes we offer. People of all ages and backgrounds come out to join the rest of the community down by the river. This class is family friendly and open to children aged 7-17 years old. Ashtanga is a disciplined practice, taught within the traditional format for familiarity and consistency.

As with all our classes, we foster safe space, mutual respect, diversity, inclusion and agency of choice to you whilst we deliver the traditional teachings of Pathanjali in the modern forms of Hatha, Raja and Ashtanga based Yoga - popularised by Krishnamacha and others.

Traditional Hatha

Sunday 9:30am

Map Pin: www.yogiurls.com/map

Join Matthew Yap and Melissa Wheeler, (with Stef in assistance) as they rotate each week to offer you their style of traditionally taught Hatha in our modern context and setting. Matt and Stef have given years of service to their home school (The Home of Yoga) whilst training. Melissa offers empowering, will structured teachings after paying much focus to trauma informed aspects of meeting students where they are at. The classes take place all year round, facing the Swan River, on the grass at Sir James Mitchell Park.

Learn postures and techniques unconfined to a Vinyasa sequence of asanas, with learning from the Foundations and Intermediate classes brought into your weekend experience. Melissa and Matt both teach with an alignment based approach, in a gentle but clearly defined way so that you can follow their teachings with confidence and options to tailor for how you are feeling in each moment. A strong Hatha practice embodies principles of Yin and Yang, without needing to differentiate the extremes. 'Hatha' means 'Sun and Moon' and is a traditional form of Yoga that many (arguably all) modern day practices have stemmed from.

This class is for adults 18 years and older.
