What you'll learn

Learn to be flexible with our health & wellbeing short courses in Sydney!

Are you seeking a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life? Join us for Gentle Yoga and embark on a journey to discover inner peace, physical well-being, and a deeper mind-body connection.

Hatha yoga is a centuries-old practice that blends physical postures, breath control, and meditation to promote holistic well-being. 

In this course, you will explore the foundational principles of Hatha Yoga, specifically tailored for those who want a gentle and accessible introduction to the practice. 

This is an introductory course tailored for those who are recovering from injuries or illness, and for those with older, less flexible bodies in need of gentle, safe exercise. 

The practice will calm an over-active brain with yogic breathing, postures and relaxation techniques, with a focus on upper body shoulders, neck and tension relief. 

Whether you're a beginner or have some experience, this course is designed to meet you at your current level and guide you towards a more flexible, balanced, and relaxed state of being.

Nurture your body and mind by experiencing the transformative power of Gentle Hatha Yoga!
