BACKGROUND

Since starting as a small group, practicing Yoga together, we have grown to facilitate over 1400 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 people's lives around us. Our instructors, learn and teach from an authentic place of wanting to share this discipline with you without the fuss or seriousness, 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 the times listed above and on our Event Calendar (https://meetup.com/perthyoga/events/calendar) here and on our Website. The grassed areas we use are shaded by large trees and we have sunscreen, mats, blocks, straps and blankets for you to use should you need them, on a first come first serve basis. Covering up with sunscreen before hand is encouraged for the way to and from our events.

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, LGBTIU specific classes. Children 7-17 years old can join in with their families at Saturday and Sunday events. The weekday events are 18 years old and over. Our class are beginner friendly, consistent in the way they challenge your development and operate for everybody at all levels.
