Classes

Darwin Yoga Space offers classes for everybody, from the beginner to the very experienced as well as specialty classes.

REGULAR CLASSES

BEGINNERS COURSE

A structured foundation course in Iyengar yoga with each class building on the previous one. Learn how to do yoga and keep it up at home on your own.

LEVEL 1

Drop into any Level 1 class and you will learn the same basic poses as in the Beginner Course, but the pace of the class is a little faster. 

LEVEL 1/2

For students who would prefer a gentle transition to Level 2 Classes. Consolidate the basics and learn the same poses taught in Level 2 at a slower more gradual pace. 

LEVEL 2

For students ready for a new challenge, Level 2 will continue to consolidate the basics and hold the poses for a bit longer. This level introduces new types of poses including standing twists, backbends, inversions and basic pranayama (breathing techniques).  

LEVEL 2/3

For students who would prefer a gentle transition to Level 3 Classes. Keep building on Level 2 poses and gradually learn more advanced poses and variations on backbends & inversions.

LEVEL 3 

For students with 3-5 years of yoga experience. Level 3 teaches advanced poses, including long sitting poses, deep back bending poses and variations on the headstand and shoulder stand. You must be able to hold head stand for at least 5 minutes. No bookings required.   

ALL LEVELS

These classes are open to all students. The teacher will adapt the pace and yoga level based on the capability and experience of students in the class. 

LED CLASS

A Led Class is not taught, rather the teacher does the poses at the front of the class with you.  The name of the pose is called and everyone does it together. These classes are more dynamic and moving, with minimal props and no instruction. Minimum 6 months experience in Iyengar yoga required.

YOGA IN THE WORK PLACE

Yoga before work or during the lunch hour can help staff deal with stiffness and pain associated with computer use and mental stress. Contact us to discuss an individualized package.

SPECIALTY CLASSES

KIDS (7 - 14 years)

Children have a natural ability to transform their bodies into frogs, tress and butterflies so they LOVE doing yoga. Apart from being good fun, yoga helps them develop good posture, flexibility, strength and better concentration. It also helps them to learn about perseverance and self-discipline. The class environment is non-competitive and kids are taught positive thinking, respect, kindness and generosity. 

We accept NT Sports Vouchers

  • pay for your 10 class term with your voucher at the start of the term
  • The voucher or classes cannot be carried over to the next term
  • If classes are initially paid for in cash, we cannot reimburse the cash and use a voucher instead. 

PRIVATE CLASS 

Suitable for students who want to address a particular issue, for rehabilitation or for those who want a tailor made program to do at home. Contact us to arrange a suitable time.

REST & RSTORE

Rest and Restore Restorative poses and pranayama (breathing techniques) will be taught in this class. Restorative poses release stored up tension in the body and calm the nervous system. These supported poses have a cooling effect on the body and are very effective in replenishing our energy reserves. Pranayama helps to maintain the vital energy of the body. Rest and Restore is a class for all level students.

PRENATAL

Our prenatal yoga class is adapted for different stages of pregnancy, helping to strengthen the legs, open the hips and pelvis, and deal with discomfort associated with pregnancy. Women who have done yoga classes with us during their pregnancy say it really helped them during labour.

You’ll be in safe hands. Anja Behlmer is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher and has 11 years teaching experience. Anja practiced yoga through both of her pregnancies and with her first hand experience will guide you safely and with confidence in your yoga while you are pregnant.

Attention all you pregnant ladies, Carole’s Pre- Natal class on a Thursday is awesome, it makes you feel revitalised and energised, which during pregnancy is a miracle (I think).

I’ve been a student for over two years at Darwin yoga space and this is my first baby, I’ve found that the pregnancy yoga has worked amazingly for me, it keeps you flexible and relaxed through what can be a challenging time with all those hormones flying around, this class helped keep me balanced, calm and confident with my breathing techniques, strength and posture. I’m now 39 weeks and once bub has reached 6 weeks I’ll be coming back to the mum & bubs class too.

My baby loves yoga, because of the way I feel whilst doing it, it releasing all those lovely endorphins.

You must give this class a go and even if you aren’t pregnant Iyengar yoga is a brilliant way to de-stress and unwind from our busy day to day lives.
