Yoga & Meditation Weekly Classes


Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is a unique combination of posture, breath, sound and meditation, sequenced together specifically to benefit a particular aspect of self. Each class is dynamic, with a particular focus to breathe as you move, while you connect with awareness and acceptance. Through the practice of awareness, we progress from the physical to the more subtle aspects of our being.

Through the practice of Kundalini Yoga, you balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, relieve stress and anxiety and experience shifts in attitude, the ability to cope and general health and wellbeing.

Each session will begin with some warm ups to increase the flow of energy in the body, followed by a Kundalini yoga kriya (a complete sequence of postures) and meditation to connect in to the heart and the vital pranic life force within.

Nancy plays the crystal bowls for a sound bath deep relaxation to follow the practice, promoting deep rest, integration and healing.

Bliss Flow Yoga
Bliss Flow yoga combines breath and movement in a moving meditation to open up the energy channels in the body for balance, strength and flexibility. Each class is set to inspiring music with flowing yoga movements that will cleanse and invigorate you. Bliss Flow Yoga has a strong emphasis on breathing and mindfulness to help you feel recharged and put your mind in a peaceful state. All students from advanced to beginners are welcome. Move your body, be inspired and enjoy!

Meditation
Nancy leads meditation sessions combining breath, mindfulness, relaxation and sometimes mantra and mudra to reach a point of stillness, healing and rejuvination.

Bliss Seniors Yoga
Bliss Seniors yoga is developed for elderly students who need a more focused, gentle practise. In these classes we focus on breathing, loosening up the joints and gently building strength and balance. The practice is done both standing and sitting on a chair in a moving meditation to open up the energy channels in the body. Each class is set to relaxing music with a guided relaxation to finish.

Crystal Singing Bowls


At a Crystal Singing Bowl healing you arrive in comfortable clothing. We have a chat about how you’re feeling and what you can expect from the healing. Then you simply lie down and get comfy, allowing the sound of the Crystal Singing Bowls to bring you to a state of deep relaxation and healing.

Benefits of a crystal singing bowl deep relaxation healing:
Our physiological response to the sound of the crystal bowls creates an experience of deep relaxation. In this state deep healing can take place. The nervous system is relaxed, effecting and benefiting the endocrine system, improving the body’s ability to heal. The frequency of sound creates a particular state of mind, inducing relaxation and calm.

Cost: $70 for one hour session, includes initial chat and wake up herbal tea.
