If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Poses and practices can be adapted to suit individuals’ needs. We are here to help you get the most out of your yoga practice and invite you to speak with us in confidence about any health concerns so that we can ensure appropriate modifications are given.
In our experience, the most common conception of yoga is that you need to be able to turn yourself into a pretzel to participate. This is far from the truth. Yoga is an individual and non-competitive practice. The aim of yoga is really to be present. The most important qualities to cultivate are awareness of your body, mind, thoughts, feelings and breath. Flexibility, strength and balance are all developed through the consistent practice of yoga. Sea Yoga provides different options for poses so that everyone can participate from the pretzels to the wooden boards.
In our experience, Yoga is the great equaliser. It keeps life in balance and at the perfect temperature. Yoga can assist with feelings of stress and emotional imbalance and provides support for a healthy body. It provides a challenge and makes you feel good. Plus, it works the body and mind all at the same time so it is great value! Who knows, you may try yoga and it could become a lifelong habit that’s good for you. The reason we teach yoga is so that as many people as possible can benefit from it.
Whether yoga is suitable for you at any stage of your pregnancy depends on individual circumstances. We can provide adaptations to practices in our led classes or better yet, give you a tailored program suited for you, your lifestyle and your pregnancy in our guided self practice or private sessions. Thaedra has taught prenatal yoga for several years and has found it invaluable during pregnancy, labour, birth and motherhood.
Comfortable, breathable, semi-fitted clothing that you can sweat in and move about in without battling rogue bits of excess fabric or worrying about exposure. Please remove your shoes before entering the yoga room – we practice in bare feet.
You are encouraged to bring your own yoga mat, however, we do provide sustainable, eco friendly studio mats for use during class. Studio mats are cleaned regularly with essential oils. We also have some Yoga Mats for purchase if you need a new one.
In general, Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach so that the process of digestion is not interrupted. Wait at least 1 hour after a light snack or 3+ hours after a heavy meal. Prenatal students should eat a light snack before class and drink water throughout if needed. It is ideal to avoid drinking water during the session (unless you are pregnant) so ensure that you are well hydrated throughout the day. Please do not bring mobile phones into the mat space (and make sure they’re silent and vibrate turned off) and remove watches and obstructive jewellery. We provide space for your belongings in the studio. Glasses can be worn during the practice but are best removed (to a safe place) for the final relaxation pose.
Bookings are specified on the timetable. Other classes are drop in. New students please contact Sea Yoga via email at email@example.com or call us on 0411 229 536 first.
