Being Conscious

Each time we step onto our mats we are embracing the opportunity for change and growth. We are stepping into consciousness. We leave yesterday’s practice behind us; we leave yesterday’s thoughts and feelings behind us and open our being to a new experience. Being conscious brings our bodies and minds into the present – the place of power.

When our awareness is in the moment, we are available to see what is: see our patterns and our habits. When we observe we transition from being on automatic pilot to directing our consciousness (our energy) intelligently and creatively.

This transition can sound simple but we know when we observe we don’t always like what we see and sometimes prefer to avoid the confrontational and challenging nature of the practice. It can put us in unfamiliar and uncomfortable places. However, this is when the practice starts to get interesting, when we move from the known, the “same old same old”, into the unknown!

The good thing about coming to class is that you know everyone around you is going through a similar experience – there is an unspoken (and sometimes spoken) understanding that it can and does get tough! This collective experience creates a positive environment that is dynamic, supportive and fun. In class we teach ourselves to sit with the uncomfortableness together, relate to it and evolve through it. Then we take what we have learnt to our mats at home and explore further!

Getting to class once a week is the springboard to two classes a week, and two classes a week sets us up well for our home practice and steers us towards a daily practice. When there is consistency and continuity in our practice we can ride the yoga wave and the underlying impatience, stresses and frustrations of day-to-day life don't get a chance to bed down as we are continuously addressing and dealing with issues in real time.

So, the question of time? When you look at the big picture, the number of years we will be on this plant, investing time in our yoga practice is of great value now and for the future!

 

 

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.

 

 

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 nine 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.
