Yoga courses are to be paid upon booking to secure your class time, day and room. We cannot transfer paid fees to the following term, unless you provide a medical certificate from your doctor indicating that you can no longer attend our classes. In the case of term transfer, the centre will allow students to do so for a maximum of 6 months for the day of transfer request. Students are able to nominate another person to complete the course if they are not able to attend. A refund can be organised for any reason, however a booking fee of $50 will be withheld, minus the classes that have been attend as the position has been reserved for you. To avoid losing the $50 booking fee, students can ask to have it credited to them, which can be used for purchasing of any products, Remedial Massages or Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment. Please note these policies are to ensure fairness for all students.
How long are yoga classes?
All classes run for 60 mins, but sometimes tend to run overtime by up to 10 mins.
How much does it cost and are rebates available?
Classes are $18 per session, paid per term upfront. Health Rebates are certainly available with some private health insurance companies. It is best to check with your insurer if yoga is covered and how much you get back, as they all vary.
What if I miss a class?
You are entitled to catch up 2 missed classes per term, within the term enrolled. They cannot be carried over into another term
Can I do 2 classes per week?
Of course! With the 2nd course, you will receive one free class to be used within the term.
What do I wear?
Comfortable clothing that you can move freely in, such as tights, singlet, shorts, t-shirt. All classes are done in bare feet, so good personal hygiene is essential
What do I bring?
All equipment and mats are provided, so you don’t need to bring anything. If you have your own mat and/or eye pillow you are welcome to it bring along. A water fountain is available here at the centre.
How many students are there in a class?
We have a maximum of 14 students per class. This ensures quality tuition.
What if I have an injury?
Injured students are very welcome, provided that your doctor has agreed yoga will be beneficial. Please notify your teacher before the class.
What if I am really inflexible?
Perfect! That’s the most ideal reason to start your yoga journey. Yoga will help supple up the body. We start slow and progress the body from there. If you feel uncomfortable in any pose your teacher can vary it and give your other options.
What If I fall pregnant mid-term?
If you are already a yoga student, and just discover that you are expecting, we ask that you continue your yoga home practice, & that you put your classes on hold until 12 weeks gestation. This is because many women suffer nausea around 8 – 12 weeks. After 12 weeks gestation you then transfer to a specific Prenatal Class.
How long can I practice prenatal yoga?
Most women begin around 12 weeks & go right through to 39/40 weeks of pregnancy. The general rule is that if it still feels good to practice, then there is no reason to stop. Yoga releases all those wonderful, “feel good” hormones called endorphins. They help keep you relaxed, supple & deeply connected to your baby & body.
What happens when the term finishes?
Once the term has finished then it is advisable that you continue onto the next term.
Can I attend casually?
As we have limited spaces in each class, unfortunately we cannot accommodate casual attendance. We also follow class plans and work with a curriculum each term, so we prefer to take students on a learning journey. By seeing the same students weekly it allows us to monitor injuries and progression. Being a yoga practitioner requires diligent, consistent practice (abhyasa). This ensures you gain the maximum benefits of yoga at the mind, body and soul levels.
The only exception is that prenatal yoga students can “pay as you go”!

Relax & Meditate
- Tuesdays 6.15pm with Barbara Scarpino
Meditation is a holistic technique that cultivates a mental discipline, uniting mind, body & spirit to experience peace, quiet and clarity. As a result, stress, anxiety and other emotional imbalances are released.
Engaging in the peaceful state, a sense of alertness and positive insight moves into our consciousness. This mental discipline leads to exploring ideas that benefit ourselves and others on a more humane level.
Meditation is a conscious awareness of the present moment. The focus is on the breath, which allows the busy mind to quieten, thus “taming the monkey mind”.
Various Pranyama (breathing techniques) and mindful, nurturing restorative movements for the body are explored throughout the term in order to receive ultimate relaxation along with visualisation to help you create your reality.
Allowing oneself to experience the benefits of meditation guarantees a natural approach for harnessing well being that will last a lifetime.
Students participating in the course are encouraged to start their own practice at home.

New students will find themselves in a class that moves slowly and mindfully where facilitators take the time to offer detailed alignment cues and can offer modifications as needed. Slow, flowing sequences and gently held postures allow space for a powerful enrichment of connection between body, mind and breath. The focus is on finding and maintaining space within the body rather than specific strength and mobility improvement goals. Students will be encouraged to foster an enjoyment of inhabiting their own bodies. Each class will include a period of led relaxation & meditation to support students to learn techniques for managing stress in daily life.
