Course description

Hatha Yoga classes are specifically designed with a holistic approach to exercise and wellbeing.

This is an introductory course for people with injuries, or inflexible, older bodies who need gentle, safe exercise.

Classes are based on Hatha Yoga and each week we focus on strengthening body systems. This includes backcare, digestive, metabolism, repiratory and stress management.

All classes include yoga breathing with slow movements to connect our body with breath, relaxation and meditation.

Suitable for older yogis or those resuming yoga after an injury or illness.

You will gain an understanding of your body and constitution and learn which specific poses to use for home practice.

We will focus on a range of movements and breathing to improve our lung clearance, giving us a more alert and optimistic perspective on life.

Feedback from Past Students

"I was happy with the course because it fulfilled my expectations based on the outline provided. I was happy with the teacher and the way the program was delivered. I enjoyed the course to the extent that I am going to do it again."

"She gave very clear instructions for the moves to be done and talked the students through the moves. She was patient and she adjusted the moves according to the needs of the students."

"While the structure of the course covered several different areas of body function and the yoga exercises were chosen to stimulate the associated organs but were not over strenuous for participants. One of our group had knee problems and exercises
were over modified for this participant. Keri knows her stuff! As close to perfect as humanely possible!"

"Liked the time, length, and construction of the session!"

"The tutor is very professional and passionate. Her classes are well structured and enjoyable."

"The tutor is very good she doesn’t push too hard or make anyone feel uncomfortable but does make you do things you normally wouldn’t think you could achieve."

"I found it very relaxing and enjoyable after a hard days work. The tutor continues to deliver great yoga sessions with consideration of individual members in the class. As I have previously commented the classes are wonderful on several levels! The hall is spacious and has a pleasant ambience! These classes were originally labelled “Gentle Yoga” and this has proven to be the case. But Keri also delivers relaxation and healing!."

"Her patience, attention to individuals and clear instructions (are excellent)."

"From the first week my lower back pain improved. I liked the focus on breathing combined with gentle movement and stretching."

"Great introduction to yoga. I feel better and move more freely. I have several injuries and was trying to improve my movement and wellness. This I have achieved."

"Easy to understand, no expectations, comfortable environment. Easy to manage and good instruction."

Avoid disappointment. Enrol early.
