Beginners Yoga COURSES in Wollongong
Two types of Beginners Yoga Courses to choose from ....
Our dedicated yoga teachers have many years of experience guiding beginners into a successful yoga practiced. Recently we have devised a have a two branch entry into yoga.
1. Rest and Restore
2. Hatha Flow.
Do you want to relax & stretch? Are you recovering from illness or surgery? Are you busy enough and just need to slow down and let you bodymind be still and quiet. Then you need our Restorative Yin beginners course.
Would you rather build strength and stamina? Work on balancing and flowing through a dynamic yoga sequence? Are you fit and want to add yoga to your fitness plan? Then our 6 week Hatha Flow course is for you. This course teaches you the Sun Salutation and fundamental yoga postures to get you ready for our Yoga Flow drop in classes.
4 Week Beginners Restorative Yin Yoga Course
These classes use special yogic props to make the yoga poses relaxing and passive, enabling you to stay in the pose for up to 5 minutes. It sounds like a lot but holding the poses passively, for a longer period of time allows for a deeper stretch and a very calm bodymind. In this course you are introduced to and experience both Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga.
Classes work particularly with the ligaments, bones and joints of the body - with an emphasis on hips, hamstrings, shoulders and spine.
No downward dogs, demanding or difficult postures in these sessions. In yin poses, students are encouraged to find for a mild, safe & deep stretch. This is sometimes referred to as "Goldilocks yoga" i.e. not too much, not too little, just right.

The small classes were great as I found it less intimidating to try out a new activity on my own. I feel that I benefited more from a smaller group as opposed to larger groups I have since recommended the Wellness Centre to friends, family and work colleagues. Thank you" ... Sarah

What makes yoga different from other exercise programs is that it has been proven to develop a strong connection between the body, breath and mind. This is particularly helpful for the following people:
- Those experiencing stress or anxiety benefit from practicing long and smooth yoga breathing, which has been shown to normalise the nervous system.
- Chronic disease sufferers, such as those with cancer benefit from significantly lower levels of pain, improved levels of relaxation and increased energy.
- Those with joint conditions such as arthritis can benefit from lower pain levels and improved joint movement.
- School & uni students can benefit from improvements in mental ability and longer attention spans.
- Older people benefit from the increase in strength and balance, lower levels of depression and improved daytime functioning, improved mental & emotional states and better quality sleep.
Yoga is an ancient science that has now been validated by evidence based research and controlled scientific studies.
Feedback from our students is that they leave class deeply relaxed and "feel amazing".
