‘It is always through adversity that we are pushed to awaken higher levels of consciousness.’

As yogis we go to our mats and we practice - it is challenging; it works us physically in all directions, it is mentally tiring and emotionally confrontational and yet at the end of each class it is very satisfying and savasana is always welcomed. The practice changes us, transforms us, it shakes us out of our complacency so we are conscious and adaptable. With this virus we need to be very conscious - we cannot be complacent but we can be adaptable. As yogis we know what it is be to outside our comfort zones.  As yogis we have the skills to adapt to the shifting conditions.

Suddenly most of us are stuck in our houses or we could say…. we are on a private retreat in our own homes! It is so paradoxical that the virus is threatening the very wellbeing of humanity on a physical level (hopefully only temporarily) creating fear and anxiety, and yet now we have time and space in our lives. As conscious yogis we can choose how best to fill our time and space – we have the opportunity to move away from the surface: from the panic, from the screens and move inward to explore the deeper side of our nature. It is always through adversity that we are pushed to awaken higher levels of consciousness.

An early morning sitting practice (meditation) is a profound way to begin each day. Then ideally the mind/body is ready for pranayama (breathing). In the beginning the length of time need only be short, let’s say ten minutes for each and then as you build a routine and consistency start to elongate the time. Continuity is the key. It does take some discipline getting going as results are nowhere in sight, especially in the beginning when we see how crazy the mind can really be! However, with continuity and persistence results come and they come in ways that we wouldn’t necessarily predict. So be clear of clichéd expectations and be open to the unique fruits of the practice.

INTRODUCTORY COURSE

 

 

Our Introductory course is designed for people who are true beginners to yoga. We don’t expect you to have any particular level of fitness or flexibility. We start at the beginning to give you the best opportunity to understand and get ‘hooked on yoga’. The course is also ideal for easing yourself back into yoga if you have had a break or are new to the Iyengar Yoga method.

The course will introduce you to standing poses, twists and gentle back and forward bends with a focus on the foundation of each pose and how this generates energy throughout the body. Each class finishes with relaxation.

The six weeks are aimed at giving you a taste of yoga - to inspire you to develop a yoga practice.  Most students feel the difference within the first couple of classes, commenting that they feel taller or more buoyant or that their mind is clearer or simply that they sleep well after every class.

Our courses do book out as we attract students from neighbouring suburbs to Fairfield, including: Alphington, Northcote, Preston and Heidelberg.

Vivienne is the founder and director of Luna Yoga. She was introduced to yoga in 1990 on a small island in Thailand. After a week of early morning classes she intuitively knew that yoga would become a large part of her life. On returning home she discovered the Iyengar Yoga method. It offered her a complete yoga practice with vast challenges.

Rachel’s love of yoga started in Christchurch, New Zealand and followed her to London and then Melbourne. As a research scientist she was attracted to the “science” of Iyengar Yoga. Initially, the yoga asanas (poses) didn’t come naturally but when she started teacher training in 2004 she utilised the techniques that Mr Iyengar has given us (props, sequencing and timings) to experiment with her body.

Nicole’s childhood was filled with yoga and ballet. In her early adult life she was a professional costume maker and dancer before settling into the fashion industry. Her love for yoga was ignited in 1990 when she found Iyengar Yoga which she deeply values for its clarity and direction and the way it continues to open new doors for learning.

Andrea-opt

Andrea had been practising yoga for many years when she discovered Iyengar yoga in 2010. She was immediately inspired by its approach to learning which emphasises alignment and experimentation. The Iyengar method gave her the tools to develop her yoga practice in preparation for an intense two-year teacher training program with senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Vivienne O’Brien.
