BACKGROUND

Since starting as a small group, practicing Yoga together, we have grown to facilitate over 1300 Meetup events and have helped the supply and demand for Yoga in schools, hospitals and organisations in WA, doing it with great appreciation for the positive effect Yoga has had on our lives and the peoples' lives around us. Our instructors, learn and teach from an authentic place of wanting to share this discipline with you and we love gathering twice a week and hanging out for coffee/tea afterwards.

 

WHAT WE DO

We stop our busy lives for 75 minutes, tune into nature and become aware of the experience of the senses, re-energising and directing breathe and prana (or qi/bio-electricity) through the body's energy systems that we might otherwise ignore. Our teachers are all traditionally trained Yoga teachers and were initiated in various parts of India, so our classes stick to the simplicity of enjoying the slow, conscientious exploration of Pathanjalis's alignment based asana and meditation practices. We love being open to embracing modern approaches to teaching and creating new ways to increase access to learning, but we don't take our selves too seriously, nor do we expect you to either!

Our classes take place by the Swan River in South Perth, overlooking the river and the city on a Sunday morning at 8am and 9.30am and at twilight on a Monday and Wednesday at 5.30pm. The grassed area we use is under 3 large paperbark trees and is shaded. We have sunscreen, mats, blocks, straps and blankets to use should you need them, on a first come first serve basis, so bringing your own is encouraged.

We are there to guide you through class and offer you a safe place every week to relax and explore your Yoga practice in whatever way most lights you up. There is no obligation to conform to ideas or subscribe to any limiting cultures. You are free to challenge, judge and be present without expectation, as you always are.

Diversity is respected and celebrated, effortlessly in our group and all are welcome to drop-in and drop-out freely. There is no discrimination made between male, female, L/G/B/T specific classes. Our class are beginner friendly, consistent in the way they challenge your development and operate for everybody at all levels.

 

WHY PRACTICE YOGA WITH US?

There are many different exercise fads in today's market but let's face it, Yoga has endured the test of time. It gives physical, mental and spiritual benefits to its students. With the stresses of modern life, Yoga provides the perfect escape from our increasingly complex, technologically driven lives. So why not come join us?

We are a fun, approachable group and we have some of the best Yoga teachers and kind hearts in WA, gathering regularly. We appreciate that people have different orientations and reasons for practising Yoga, whether for, exercise, self-inquiry or for psychological control and stress relief. All of our classes conclude with a 10-15 minute Shavasana or yoga sleep (Yoga Nidra) so you can completely let go and rest to conclude your session.

We also have heaps of double passes and multi-use Karma Card pass offers that you can buy from your teacher or order online, which brings down the class price to as low as $3 per class!  For a full list of our Pricing and all details of our service offerings, click here.

 

OUR VALUES

1. Consistency in service and certainty of classes during all seasons (confidence and assurance).
2. Celebrating diversity, individuality, and being yourself (self-love).
3. Collaboration and creativity to solve community resource issues and cooperate (rather than compete) with others to add value for all.
4. Competence and compliance with applicable privacy, child protection and consumer laws.
5. Convenience and ease of access to all.
6. Community love and respect for others, promoting inclusion, support and service to others.

These are the values that we embody as a collective of teachers, organisers and students practicing yoga and serving our community as one organised movement. We act in accordance with these values when delivering services to you and when facilitating interaction between you and other participants or members of the community that we share our experiences with.

 

 

YOUR DATA AND PREFERENCES ARE PRIVATE

We no longer use WhatsApp, Facebook or Social Media to message you (as it is creating lots of mind noise for both you and us) so we have brought all our communications and booking systems in-house to actually be able to control and protect your data securely, as organisations are supposed to be doing.

For this reason, the preferred way to book a spot in one of our classes and to communicate with us after 1st April 2019, is here on Eventbrite or our website www.perthyoga.org (once launched). If you are a Donation Member you can also use Meetup to book any one of the 5 spots made available for each class there. Details about how we go beyond what Australian law requires us to do to honour your Privacy rights are contained in our Privacy Policy.
