Tegan completed her 200 Hour Yoga teacher training with Awakened Life School of Yoga in Bali, where she trained in Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Mindfulness, Yogic philosophy, Yoga Nidra, Mantra, and Yoga Anatomy and Physiology. She passionately intertwines Yogic and Ayurvedic Philosophy into her classes, fusing both of these ancient sister sciences in a way that is both practical and fun. These classes introduce students to traditional yoga postures, yogic breathing techniques and guided relaxation, and are delivered to synchronise movement with breath, inducing meditative flow.
Alex
Young and vibrant male yoga teacher with a passion for health and wellbeing. Experienced and trained in Vinyasa Kramar, I aim to build a relationship between mind, body and breath, both in the yoga room and within every moment of life. Through a combination of calming, rejuvenating and stimulating yoga classes, my goal is to create freedom and release in the mind and body. It is vital for mental and physical health to find this release to alleviate tension and stress, which are major contributors to mental disturbance, physical discomfort and the manifestation of illness.

FAQ

The need to be flexible is a common misconception about yoga. Far too often this prevents people from coming to yoga classes. If you are not flexible, yoga is the ideal place to start. It is natural to lose flexibility in modern life, and yoga allows you to gradually lengthen and expand your muscle fibres, releasing toxins that build up in the muscles over time.

Ideally we recommend starting with a Beginner or All Level Open class. See our timetable for details. There is no need to keep up with the class or push yourself, and we strongly encourage beginners to pace themselves. You can go at your own pace, and can rest in Child Pose as often as is needed. You can benefit greatly from a class while spending half of it resting in Child Pose, gradually working your way towards keeping in time with the instructor. Attending classes regularly, ideally a few times per week, will lead to a dramatic improvement in a matter of months. Starting with regular classes will create a solid physical and intellectual base from which your strength, focus, stamina and flexibility can build.

Most people struggle to complete at least one or two postures in a class, and this is completely normal. If a posture is too difficult, you can ask your teacher for a modification that is more accessible. All our teachers are trained to assist students in completing every pose safely and successfully, regardless of their experience level.

Remember that you can always opt to rest or do a different pose that you feel more comfortable with. This is your practice, and we encourage you to honour your body and do only what is comfortable and feels right. After class, you can ask the teacher to help you with the pose for future mastery. There is no rush.

We provide everything: mats, props and other essentials. You may prefer to bring your own mat. We also recommend bringing a bottle of water, but filtered water is available.

We recommend comfortable clothing for yoga that allows for freedom of movement. Avoid anything too tight or too loose, as both can restrict your poses. Bare feet are best.

You are never too old for Yoga. It is suitable for people of all ages, and almost benefits everyone.

You should come to class on an empty stomach but not hungry. Try not to eat for two or three hours before class. If you practice yoga on a full stomach, you might experience cramps, nausea, or vomiting. Digesting food requires energy, which can make you lethargic.

We offer a variety of classes. We recommend that you try a few different classes and teachers, as your preference for style of class and teacher can be very personal.

If you have been practicing yoga regularly (for at least 6 months prior to pregnancy), then there is no reason not to continue with some modifications from your teacher. Please inform your teacher to enable them to work with you and adapt the poses.

Please let your teacher know about any injuries or conditions that might affect your practice. They can then modify your poses or instruct you to skip certain postures during the class. It’s also important to let your teacher know if you are pregnant prior to class. Please check with a doctor if you feel that you have a physical condition that may interfere with your participation.
