Welcome to term 1 / 2020 - Week 1:
The Art of Rest & Relaxation 😊🙏🕉💛
Hope the New Year has started smooth & relaxed for you... in any case you will have the chance to immerse yourself into the art of rest & relaxation over term 1! This is our theme for the casual classes in term 1. We will explore the benefits of 'rest & relaxation' and learn techniques to apply more of it in daily life, which hopefully will make the rest of this new year as enjoyable as possible :)
This week we are focusing on the 'May you be at peace' part of the Tibetan Buddhist Prayer above.
To be able to be at peace is essential, not only for proper rest & relaxation, but for so much more - our choices, our decision making, our approach to almost everything in life.
Being at peace seems like the prerequisite for all the other things mentioned in the prayer. If we are at peace, our hearts remain open - if we are at peace, we have a great chance to awaken to our own true nature - if we are at peace, we can be healed - if we are at peace, we might become a source of healing for all beings!
What a wonderful world can unfold just by being at peace...

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self. THE BHAGAVAD GITA
Welcome to this Yoga class for beginners & intermediates, 75 minutes, intuitive and gentle with a challenging edge for healthy expansion. I am a certified and registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance (https://www.yogaalliance.org/TeacherPublicProfile?tid=152246) and a teacher of the team at the Yoga & Qigong School of Sumner (http://www.yogaqigong.co.nz/teachers.html) and specialize in intuitive yoga. My teaching is based on Hatha Yoga and the sessions will not only introduce you to yoga and guide you during practice, but also provide deep relaxation at the end of each class. I am also always happy to support you in developing your own personal practice. Please check our calendar (https://www.meetup.com/Yoga-Intuition/events/calendar)!
I encourage the usage of intuition in practicing Yoga. This can greatly help with learning to listen to your body, gently adjusting the postures to your individual needs, enhance your overall well-feeling, and support you to create a practice which becomes uniquely your own. Relaxation, conscious breathing and a good warm are also important components.
