BACKGROUND

Since starting as a small group, practicing Yoga together, we have grown to facilitate over 1300 Meetup events and have helped the supply and demand for Yoga in schools, hospitals and organisations in WA, doing it with great appreciation for the positive effect Yoga has had on our lives and the peoples' lives around us. Our instructors, learn and teach from an authentic place of wanting to share this discipline with you and we love gathering twice a week and hanging out for coffee/tea afterwards.

WHAT WE DO

We stop our busy lives for 75 minutes, tune into nature and become aware of the experience of the senses, re-energising and directing breathe and prana (or qi/bio-electricity) through the body's energy systems that we might otherwise ignore. Our teachers are all traditionally trained Yoga teachers and were initiated in various parts of India, so our classes stick to the simplicity of enjoying the slow, conscientious exploration of Pathanjalis's alignment based asana and meditation practices. We love being open to embracing modern approaches to teaching and creating new ways to increase access to learning, but we don't take our selves too seriously, nor do we expect you to either!

Our classes take place by the Swan River in South Perth, overlooking the river and the city on a Sunday morning at 8 am and 9.30 am and at twilight on a Monday and Wednesday at 5.30 pm. The grassed area we use is under 3 large paperbark trees and is shaded. We have sunscreen, mats, blocks, straps and blankets to use should you need them, on a first come first serve basis, so bringing your own is encouraged.

We are there to guide you through class and offer you a safe place every week to relax and explore your Yoga practice in whatever way most lights you up. There is no obligation to conform to ideas or subscribe to any limiting cultures. You are free to challenge, judge and be present without expectation, as you always are. Diversity is respected and celebrated, effortlessly in our group and all are welcome to drop-in and drop-out freely. There is no discrimination made between male, female, L/G/B/T specific classes. Our class are beginner friendly, consistent in the way they challenge your development and operate for everybody at all levels.

WHY PRACTICE YOGA WITH US?

There are many different exercise fads in today's market but let's face it, Yoga has endured the test of time. It gives physical, mental and spiritual benefits to its students. With the stresses of modern life, Yoga provides the perfect escape from our increasingly complex, technologically driven lives. So why not come join us? We are a fun, approachable group and we have some of the best Yoga teachers and kind hearts in WA, gathering regularly. We appreciate that people have different orientations and reasons for practising Yoga, whether for, exercise, self-inquiry or for psychological control and stress relief. All of our classes conclude with a 10-15 minute Shavasana or yoga sleep (Yoga Nidra) so you can completely let go and rest to conclude your session.

Our calendar and Weather Cancellation Policy is publicly accessible on our Website (https://perthyoga.org) and Meetup pages (https://meetup.com/perthyoga/pages) and basically says that we will let you know at least 12 hours prior to the start of an event, if the event is cancelled due to weather, otherwise the event is automatically confirmed and the teacher will attend regardless of whether the event goes ahead or not. Our use of technology and booking/communication processes (and online reach) makes us the most organised and consistent outdoor yoga mob here in Australia, which is why our numbers have held over the years as our group classes have remained regular and reliable.

Children between the age of 7 and 18 years of age may attend our Sunday classes with a legal guardian or parent for an additional $5 per class. Adults must sign a waiver, attend and communicate with us on the child's behalf, for us to comply with our duty's to you as a parent or guardian. We do not send out more than 1 monthly member email to subscribers and we never market to anyone under the age of 18 years old. Our teachers and officers all hold and display Working With Children's Cards to identify themselves as being listed on the Working With Children's Register, to anyone inquiring.

We also have heaps of double passes and multi-use Karma Card pass offers that you can buy from your teacher or order online, which brings down the class price to as low as $7 per class.

Ashtanga in the Park 8AM (with Lamb)

South Perth Foreshore

A$10.00

Join us weekly all year round, for a relaxing and energising Ashtanga Flow practice facing the Swan River in the beautiful, Sir James Mitchell Park overlooking Perth City. Nicole Iovine ('Lamb') (RYT 500) will be leading participants through the Ashtanga Primary Series out in the fresh air. Learn this popularized, vinyasa sequence of asanas and receive guidance using core muscular and energetic locks, drishti (focused-gaze), correct alignment, breath-work and a deep commitment to self-love. Here you can meet uncomfortable sensations and learn to sit beside them in an accepting level of awareness, with less and less resistance the more you practice. (This is what yoga is ultimately training your mind to do). Our Sunday morning Ashtanga classes are the most dynamic and popular classes we offer, with people from all ages and backgrounds coming out to join the rest of the community, walking and doing yoga on a Sunday morning down by the river. This class is family friendly and open to kids for those of you with children aged 7-18 years old. There's no pressure to perform and no medals for forcing yourself beyond what is comfortable. It's just nice to be able to express your body and make shapes to feel good, with others in a way that is fun. Yoga is a practice of self-inquiry that makes you more resourceful, resilient, expanding your perseverance. We facilitate a safe space, mutual respect, diversity, inclusion and the traditional teachings of Pathanjali's, in it's modern forms of Hatha, Raja and Ashtanga based Yoga, popularised by Krishnamacharya. Whatever your level is, the hard part time and time again is turning up at 8am and committing to your practice.
