Most people equate stretching with yoga. However, in the Iyengar method we look to ‘anchor’ first. That is, to establish a foundation in the pose and once this is understood, and therefore felt, we have something to ‘stretch’ against. Because the foundation is so important for our safety, to prevent us from over stretching, I always hesitate to even use the word stretch. Once we have our resistance, the foundation, we can then EXTEND - we can extend without fear of injury. This relationship between resistance and extension is a life time study and it is how the practice draws us in until we get ‘hooked on’ these two powerful forces: support and stability (resistance), and expansiveness and freedom (extension).

The more resistance we develop the more extension we can yield ….. and everyone loves the feeling of extension! When there is a balance between these forces it creates an evenness in our tissue, a smoothness in our movements and a calmness in our minds. It trains our minds to stay present for the work that creates the sensations of resistance and extension. So not only does the practice sculpt our bodies from the inside out, more importantly it cultivates our minds.


Vivienne O'Brien established Luna Yoga in 2000.

Luna Yoga is located at St. Paul’s Church, 86A Station Street, Fairfield - an historic building, spacious and peaceful in the heart of the Fairfield village. It is a fully equipped studio that offers an intimate and supportive environment to begin or further your yoga practice.

For beginners who come through our doors we seek to ignite in you a passion for yoga. We inspire our new and regular students alike to meet the challenges that yoga offers. We encourage our students to work skilfully and intelligently, and to be open to the possibility of feeling the exhilaration that arises from experiencing integration and extension simultaneously. We aim for our students to leave class physically challenged yet with a feeling of elation and satisfaction in knowing they have explored new boundaries.






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 eight 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.
