Some students choose to repeat the Introductory Course and that is fine. Introductory Courses run once a week for 6 consecutive weeks. We stagger the start of courses on different days so that there will always be one starting soon for you. See below for starting dates and booking requirements. {/slide}{slide=WHERE TO AFTER MY COURSE?} We offer Ongoing Beginners classes on different days and at varying time slots.

The three months expiry date is activated after you use it for the first time, If you are in the midst of an Introductory course, have completed an Introductory Course or done yoga in the past the ongoing Beginners classes will usually be most suitable. If you have any doubts please check with us first to make sure they are right for you. These classes confirm and expand upon what has been taught in the Introductory Course. Please go to our Timetable for further information about times, days and prices of these classes. {/slide}{slide=BOOKINGS AND REGISTRATION} Due to the popularity of our Introductory courses, bookings and prepayment are essential.To make a booking either, check the start dates to select the course that suits you best, then: Book online by clicking here (preferred, and you earn points towards a future purchase) or phone the studio on 8352 7823 in office hours and we can process your credit card payment over the phone.

Wear stretch clothes such as leggings, long shorts or tracksuit pants, a tank top or T shirt. Just take care that your clothing will not reveal anything you wouldn't want to show or others wouldn't want to see when you move your body, including into upside down positions. {/slide}{slide=FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS} What do I bring? Pretty much just your self! We suggest that you bring a towel or sarong to place between your head or face and the studio equipment. All equipment including blankets and mats are supplied by Yoga Spirit Studios. However, you are welcome to bring your own mat, owning your own mat will enable you to practice at home and bringing your own mat to class may appeal to you for hygiene reasons. We have mats for sale at the studio. If you use one of our mats we request that you wipe it down after class, which helps to keep them fresh and hygienic for all. What do I wear? Comfortable stretch clothes that you might wear to the gym, eg: leggings, tracksuit pants, singlet or T-shirt. Keep in mind that you will get warm in class. Because yoga is practiced in bare feet, wearing slip on shoes makes things easier too. NOTE: It is advisable to check that leggings and tights are not see through when stretched. Short shorts are not appropriate for men or women in wide legged poses. Bras should be substantial enough to contain breasts when bending forwards and higher cut necklines on ladies T-shirts and tank tops help you to remain comfortable. Long line tops and body hugging styles that will not flop up when bending over or ride up during movement work best. How and when should I pay? Cash, cheques and credit card (Bankcard, Mastercard, Visa) are all accepted. Bookings and payments can also be made online.Payments for Introductory Courses are due in full prior to the start of the course at the time of making your booking. Your registration is not complete and your place in the course is not assured until you have paid. If you join our ongoing classes, the purchase of Memberships and 5, 10 or 20 class passes can also be made online, with your credit card over the phone prior to attending, or at the studio a few minutes before the start of your class. I have injuries and stiffness in my body, is yoga still appropriate for me? Most people will find that they have some injuries and problem areas in their body. Through yoga we learn more about these problems and how we can work with them. If you've had recent surgery or spinal disk problems please contact the studio to discuss this further. Can I eat before class? It is recommended to avoid eating for 2 hours before class. What about pregnancy? If you are pregnant and have not done yoga before, a prenatal class is essential and these classes are held on Saturdays at 9.15am and Wednesday at 6.00pm. See our Prenatal page for further information. Why do we do so many standing poses? Many new comers to yoga practice are surprised how many standing postures there are in the class which makes the yoga practice more strenuous than we may have expected. There are some very good reasons why we teach in this way. 
The standing poses are invigorating and remove sluggishness in the body and mind. 
They refresh and energize the body and mind by stretching out tension, improving circulation and opening the body for improved breathing. The legs, feet, hips, knees, back and shoulders all gain mobility and strength. Thus these poses are preparations for seated forward bends, back bends, twists and inversions. Our body learns correct movement and posture from the standing poses so that we can sit, walk and stand more comfortably and at ease.
While they may be physically challenging, even the newest beginner, the older student and those with injuries can manage them and reap the benefits of yoga. Of the standing poses BKS Iyengar is quoted: “You should do the asanas with vigour and at the same time be relaxed and composed”A fantastic yoga book, Yoga the Iyengar Way, says of the standing poses: “Working with effort does not mean working with tension and it is important to learn how to stay relaxed” So the standing poses give us much more than just the physical benefits. {/slide}

The following is the feedback from some participants in an early research study at Walter Reed Army Hospital with military participants with PTSD. ‘When I come back to the practice my thoughts become quiet…it’s empowering knowing I can change the way I feel and my mood.’ ‘The Inner Resource calmed me down and brought peace.’ ‘The classes are calming and I always have a really good day after the sessions.’ ‘It’s easier to get to sleep now…and I sleep longer’ ‘I’m experience life…not just living it’. (At the conclusion of the class) ‘…I didn’t want it to end.’ ‘I feel more accepting of situations in my life that I cannot control.’ What to expect This three hour session is designed to introduce the process of iRest Yoga Nidra to people with the experience of trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression especially when linked to past traumatic events.

Retreat is an opportunity to immerse in practices that assist in bringing us into that deep stillness. Please join Tina on this retreat to pause from the usual pattern of day to day life and immerse in deep stillness, coming home to rest in Being. What to expect Retreat will have the following elements: - iRest Yoga Nidra and meditation - Body sensing movement practices - Pranayama and breath sensing - Periods of the practice of silence in community - Opportunities for questions and discussion.
