What sort of Yoga does Peace Yoga Teach?

Ours is a flowing sequential style of Hatha Yoga . We build the sequences gently and this allows students to stop and rest when they need to and allows others to continue till they reach their ‘edge’…the point where they are working to their capacity but not going past a secure and comfortable level. We also now teach Vinyasa Yogaa free flowing gentle yoga.

What is Yoga and how can it help me?

Yoga is a profound ancient discipline, a Health Science that is still in practice after thousands of years because IT WORKS!!!

It begins with placing your body in a myriad of different geometric shapes and relaxing, breathing and stretching into these shapes. It is the union of the Body the Breath and Mind working together, ensuring not only very powerful healing but also access to the most powerful tools of self-acceptance and self-empowerment.

It brings the union of Physical, Mental, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual Health and Well-Being. It is a gift from antiquity to all of mankind.

Am I too old to start taking lessons?

There is no such thing as too old!

At Yoga you learn how NOT to let an old person move in to your body..or a sick person or even a tired person!

Our youngest students have started with their mums in Pregnancy Yoga whilst still in- utero, they were receiving the benefits of their mums practice..

Youngest baby to Mums and Bubs Yoga has been two weeks old..and the oldest student to ….in their eightees..however they had practiced before. Any age is perfect and the sooner the better!...

Just Start!!

Students actually.. Become Younger.. in front of our eyes..stiffness and rigidity softens..,suppleness returns…. the face becomes more gentle and peaceful… and the smiles become wider and wider!!

What if I have a medical condition?

Always speak to your doctor first and when you arrive to class, fill in your registration card and ensure that you highlight to your instructor any medical conditions. Yoga is holistic which means that it works the entire body, however on occasion different postures and breaths can be particularly helpful to alleviate different disorders. There are also some contra-indications that may apply to different conditions. There is always Yoga that can be of assistance no matter what the medical situation.

How often should I attend?

Peace Yoga is a sanctuary and you will notice an immediate difference after your first session and even though one regular session per week is enormously beneficial, you will notice that if you do two sessions your progress is much more rapid..

Every extra session per week has a multiplying effect so two is like three, three is like five..etc. Some students come almost every day.

Can I get fit from taking lessons?

Absolutely, although Yoga works much more than just the muscular body, you will increase your strength, flexibility and overall health. As the sequences build within your practice, you will find your stamina increasing and your ability to continue with the more challenging work. We offer a Dynamic session four mornings a week which is a Cardio-vascular workout and includes repeated Surya Namaskar ( Sun Salutes) done with Mantra, the Rishi Isometrics and 5 Tibetans. This class is definitely a great workout!...but still engenders the Yogic elements of Peace and Stillness. It elevates the consciousness as well as the heart rate!

I am a beginner. Do you offer any starter classes?

Yes , our Monday 10.00 am is a very gentle class and suitable for everyone but particularly beginners. All our other classes are multi-level general classes and great care is taken by the instructors to ensure that the work is appropriate to all students. Resting asanas are recommended at different stages during the sequences and use of the wall etc when more advanced students work from the middle of the room without the use of the wall etc.

You will always be made feel very welcome, safe and secure.

How are you different?

We don’t compare ourselves to other Yoga Schools as we feel the world needs as much Yoga as possible!

We offer our students a non-judgemental, non – competitive , safe and caring environment in which positive thinking, talking and action are encouraged. We aim to assist in adding quality, health and happiness to the lifestyles of all students. We find that the atmosphere is very warm and loving and the sense of community, strong and supportive.

Night classes are done by candle light and lamplight and all classes are accompanied by glorious music, candles, flowers, the chime of the singing bowl, tingshaw, and the scent of delicate incense.

Reiki is offered by the teachers to students as they relax before or after class. All teachers are Reiki/ Seichim Masters at Peace Yoga.

How long have you been established?

Peace Yoga began in 1996 at our Forest Branch in Cornubia near the Daisy Hill Forest. This class no longer continues but you are welcome to attend our Burleigh Studio which is only 40 minutes away. We are sure the drive will be worth the effortas we have others that make the trip.

We began classes at beautiful Miami in early 1999 and continued at the Miami Surf Lifesaving Club until they began their renovations and we needed to relocate

Our beautiful new studio became a reality and classes began in August 2006 at Lower West Burleigh Road, Burleigh Heads.

We have moved again. We are among the gum trees st 88 West Burleigh Rd, Burleigh Heads.

Many of our original students from Daisy Hill and Miami are still with us and some are now the well loved teachers at Peace Yoga.
