Beginners’ Yoga Course: there are still spaces available see our Beginners page for details.

Timetable_Aug 2017

Our four styles of Yoga

1) Hatha yoga ~ the “Bliss” class

Relax body and mind and ease into this blissful restorative yoga practice. Breath-focused, gentle movements leave you in a state of deep rest, balance and expansiveness. Working within a normal range of movement, this is a class for every body. All Hatha classes are 60 minutes.

2) Yoga Foundations ~ focused and transformative

Build the correct foundations for your yoga practice. With clear, structured sequences, safe alignment and deep muscular heat, you will develop strength, balance and flexibility. Yoga Foundations teaches the body/mind a new way of being — tall, light, strong and energised. An ideal core class for all levels.

3) Vinyasa Flow ~ dynamic and energising

Vinyasa means movements linked in synchronisation with breath, making for a flowing class that exphasises ‘the dance of the posture’. Challenge your balance, strength and length in this graceful and fluid practice.
An exhilarating ride for the able beginner and experienced practitioner alike.

4) Vinyasa Express ~ early morning or lunchtime energiser

This 50 minute vinyasa class are guaranteed to bring energy and focus to your day. Not requiring as much stamina or endurance as our longer classes, the express class is the ideal ‘yoga snack’.

+) Macandrew Bay yoga classes

This community class is somewhere between “Yoga Foundations” and “Vinyasa Flow” and we try to cater for all levels. Beginners welcome.

Don’t know which class to try? Ask our awesome teachers!

All our teachers are skilled in adjusting postures for different ability levels.
In general from option 1 – option 3, the intensity increases. If you’ve been through one of our BEGINNER’S COURSES, you will have the tools to work at your level in the first 2 options, if not all!

Our modalities are designed to fit together – they all work the elements of yoga. We encourage all students to do more than one modality in their regular practice to benefit from different approaches.

  1. Was looking for class/instruction for teenagers – some of whom have experienced yoga previously. Ever done a class on-site @ local school, and if so what minimums would be required to do so?

    • Kia ora Dawn,
      We’ve taught teenagers on site in theatre, dance and circus with yoga elements in the class before. We would have to plan particularly to take a straight yoga class at your school. I’ll email you directly to discuss your objectives and our fees.
      Namaste, Rhys

  2. Hi, I am currently 23 weeks pregnant. Have you got any prenatal classes starting soon? If not, which of the classes would be the most suitable on the current timetable? Julie

    • Dear Julie, Congratulations! Have you done much yoga before? We don’t have any prenatal classes starting in the immediate future. If you want some deeply breath centred yoga, the class you at this time is Traditional Hatha Yoga (Tues morn, Thurs evening).

  3. Hi there, I have was wondering if I could come to the Yoga Foundations class on Saturday? I have done yoga in the past and I exercise actively four times a week. Or is it important for me to do the beginners course first? Thanks 🙂
    Maxine 🙂

    • Dear Maxine,
      I believe you would be fine to come in a try the Yoga Foundations on Saturdays. There is good strength, flexibility and balance work in these classes. I aim the class at all levels so that there are challenges for those who seek it but adjustments and options to take rests when people need to. The practice really works the whole body/mind – breath focus being the key. You are most welcome.
      Namaste, Rhys

  4. Kia Ora. I was wondering what class would you recommend for me, as I am just regaining my strength after having my 4th child. I have consistently practiced yoga both before and during my pregnancy so I am not a beginner. Thank you. Kind regards Maire

    • Kia ora Maire,
      If there are no complications, I would recommend the Yoga Foundations class for gaining strength and stability. I would invite you to take it easy on your first few sessions and get the hang of the class.
      Namaste, Rhys

  5. Hi there
    I currently live in Christchurch but I travel to Dunedin on business every 8 weeks and I’m looking to take up classes when I’m in town. I see you take casuals but do you take casuals for beginner classes? I currently do classes in Wellington but I’m looking to do a class in every city.
    Also could you please send me a timetable once updated end of jan?
    If I cant do beginner what other class would you recommend? I also do Pilates if that helps?
    Thanks for your time 🙂

    • Dear Jess,
      The Beginners Course needs to be booked for as a whole course – so no casuals sorry. However, if you are doing classes in every city I recommend you come to our Yoga Foundations class. It is great for physical fitness/strength/flexibility/balance and centred, calm mind.
      Namaste, Rhys.

  6. Hi there, I have never done yoga before however very interested to start up. I will be away in june so I can’t do the beginners course, however will the foundation yoga be to hard to start off with?
    Thanks, Lauren

    • Dear Lauren,
      Many people just dive straight into Yoga Foundations, which can be fine. I’ll email you a few questions regarding your health, age and objectives and we can start you in a class.
      Namaste, Rhys

  7. Hi,
    Do you offer yoga teacher training. Does anyone in Dunedin.
    If not, could I practice Astanga with you guys and get certified elsewhere?

    • Kia ora Pankaj, There is no formalised teacher training in Dunedin at the moment. We have run seminars for our group of teachers from time to time, but mainly encourage enthusiastic students to do a full-time course with a master such as our teacher Nicky Knoff in Cairns, Australia.
      You are most welcome to come to our classes. All of our class modalities are complimentary so that they assist different aspects of one’s practice. So for people keen on the Astanga sequence, Yoga Foundations is good for teaching form and alignment, Vinyasa Flow is good for exploring alternative flows while keeping the ujjayi focus, Hatha emphasises release and surrender, with passive postures and the ‘yin’ aspects of yoga – important if your regular practice is very ‘yang’.
      Namaste, Rhys Latton

  8. Hi I am Millie and I am really interested to do yoga I am a dancer at rasa school of dance and I was wondering do you do classes for 11 year olds I would be very interested to do yoga to keep my flexiblity up , try new things , and feel nice and relaxed I am really interested thankyou

    • Dear Millie, We’re happy to have 11-year-olds in our classes if they’re really keen and focussed. You may like to try the Yoga Foundations classes classes to start with – see the timetable for details.
