The Hustle & Bustle continues!

Welcome to the subscriber tribe.  Here, we share information, inspiration and specials.  There's been lots of activity & events in the studio in the last 2 months, and it will continue next month with our quarterly Sound Meditation & Yin Yoga class, as well as our Monthly Meditation Workshop. Read on and hit reply to let me know you are attending.

The new year brings with it our appreciation for what we have, what we can do with our bodies & minds,  and for how we can live our lives.  The value of Freedom then is one I treasure a lot, and I know you do too. So to express our wish for everyone to live in freedom & peace we have started chanting a freedom invocation at the end of each yoga class, which has proven very powerful & popular.  I hope my recording will help you with the lyrics and the melody. Pop over for a listen & a sing-along.

We held a special yoga nidra & chakra yoga session to celebrate the beginning of the New Lunar Year of the wood goat.  This was well received & popular and we will repeat it in April.  More info here.

Treatments, kids and adult yoga classes are held in our glorious sanctuary set amongst native bushland in Frankston South. Expect to laugh, connect, learn, stretch and strengthen as well as calm & focus your mind.  Visit the timetable if you want to improve your wellbeing & add a remedial treatment or an additional yoga class to your week.  

I'm looking forward to celebrating, moving and relaxing with you.

Sending you my love.

Freedom Invocation - New Video

"Lokah Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu - Let all beings everywhere be happy and free".  This is a beautiful chant and a thoughtful way to end a yoga class.  To make it easier for you to memorise it, I have made a recording.  Like in the picture, right outside the studio, with the birds singing  in the background. I dare you to sing with me, you might even enjoy yourself!  Let your voice, like your life, your breath and your yoga practice be an exploration of your full potential. Go you! Have a listen here.
