YOGA FOR TRANSFORMATION

 

 

 

Ashtanga Yoga is a style of yoga popularized by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century. This method is very traditional, strong and heating with a set sequence, each posture preparing the body for the next. This beginner’s class is taught gently and specific to the students in the room. Modifications are given and postures explored patiently in a relaxed manner. It is challenging but accessible to all levels. Give it a go! “It’s a yoga practice, not a yoga perfect”- S.K. Pattabhi Jois

 

Designed to target the connective tissue, ligaments and joints, Yin yoga is relaxing and grounding. We use a lot of yoga props to support the postures and each posture is generally held for about 1 to 5 minutes to allow the muscles to fully relax and the stimulation to be felt in the deeper tissues of the body. As it is very meditative and peaceful, Yin is the perfect end of day wind-down to prepare you for deep sleep.

 

 

Otherwise known as Conscious Clubbing. This is a safe space to be able to go wild, dance and be free without the need to go to a nightclub. It is so much fun! We'll start with a little breath-work, stretching, and checking into the present moment then we turn off the mind, relax the senses and allow the music to move us for a full hour of free-form dancing to a beautiful playlist. We lastly wind-down into a closing circle and relaxation at the finish.

 

Yoga plus coffee = Yoffee! Come for a 9.15am class followed by a Sunday coffee made by resident barista Alex, or have a refreshing cup of tea. This is a nice way to get to know your fellow yogis after practice. This class is by booking only. Please book in by emailing hello@wellnesssanctuary.co.nz

 

A very gentle, slow paced class with traditional yoga postures, ideal for beginners wishing to try a simple, foundational and nourishing practice or for those seeking movement at a quieter pace. We flow in a moving meditation between postures, connected to breath, holding each pose to find depth and stability. 

 

 

A beautiful blend of Yoga postures, mantra, mudra, ayurveda, philosophy and relaxation woven together. Relaxing and beneficial in so many ways for both mama and baby in the womb. Attendance of a minimum of 3 classes is encouraged as it is an intimate setting and friendships will often form throughout the yoga classes. The body of knowledge will be built on as we proceed. Bookings are essential. Please book by emailing Sarah hello@wellnesssanctuary.co.nz

 

Mama and Baby can have some time to connect and yoga together. Mama will be able to stretch out, relax, breathe, relieve bodily aches and pains and find comfort in her body, while baby chills out next to you. Some of the poses you can do with your baby too! The postures will help to relieve any complications such as prolapse, help to tone the pelvic floor, relieve back pain and strengthen both body and mind. Breathwork, mantra (chanting) and playful poses to reduce baby blues and postnatal depression, are also part of this wonderful class. Baby will soak up the happy relaxed vibes next to you, beginning your yoga journey together. 
 

In this class we use Asana (yoga postures), Pranayama (breath control), Meditation and Mantra (sacred sound) as well as other tools and explore deeper through looking into the Chakra System and its impact on us.
As a thousands of years old holistic science about life, yoga offers the opportunity to get to know ourselves intimately and to create positive change in our lives on a physical, mental and emotional level. Through exploring different aspects of yoga we can explore different aspects of ourselves. Everything that happens in our outside world is related to what is happening internally for us. Yoga offers a variety of tools that support us to live from a spiritually embodied and personally empowered place - and most importantly from a place of joy.
