2019 Timetable from Monday 14 January
Darwin Yoga Space offers classes for everybody, from the beginner to the very experienced as well as specialty classes.
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.
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.
This class is suitable for Level 1 and Level 2 students. For Level 1 students it is a jump up and begins to prepares you for Level 2 classes. For Level 2 students this class is an opportunity to consolidate your understanding of Level 1 & 2 poses.
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).
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.
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.
This class is suitable for all level students. It is especially for students who suffer from injuries or conditions that make it difficult for them to attend regular classes because they need to work more slowly and with more support. The poses are Level 1 poses but done with more support to accomodate for knee, back, hip and shoulder injuries. This class is also suitable for pregnant women.
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.
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.

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.
