Activities with like-minded people help us to continuously evolve on the path of Yoga and Wellbeing, whilst strengthening the connection to the Sangha (group). Our events are held for regular or one-off Yoga classes, exploration, discussion and sharing; honoring the ancient traditions of Yoga, Ayurveda and Astrology. Our retreats provide a sanctuary of time that is dedicated to your inner wellness, rejuvenation and nurturing.

Classes

Wednesday, 1 December 2021 will be our last yoga class until further notice.

There are quite a few reasons why we stop teaching yoga at this point. The major one is that we are not willing to discriminate against anybody. We do not support apartheid, never have and never will.

Ahimsa!

Classes @ Criffel Woolshed

Tuesdays, 6-7.30pm (90 min practice followed by Chai & social time)
Led Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Class AND Mysore session

Ashtanga is one of the most vigorous physical yoga practices. It is ideal for active people to balance all other physical activities, to harness the mind and to control the breath.

Join us for a candle-lit led Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class at the beautiful Criffel Station Woolshed on Tuesdays from 6 – 8pm. We will guide you through parts of the Primary Series, followed by social time with Chai. We have recently moved to Wanaka after having run a yoga studio (breathe yoga) in Havelock North for ten years. Doris has been trained by the legendary John Scott. Urs was lucky enough to learn under the guidance of the well-known Yoga Therapy teacher, Ganesh Mohan.

This class is suitable for anybody who has dynamic Yoga experience or is physically active. The class is fully led and is designed for people who enjoy flowing movement synchronized with breath. It is a deeply cleansing practice for anybody (runners, bikers, skiers, etc.) who needs stretching, strength and suppleness in body and calmness of mind.  It is indeed a fantastic preparation for the skiing season and works well as a preventive practice against injuries.

Long-term Ashtangis are guided in Mysore between 6 – 7.30pm

Wednesdays, 5.30-6.45pm (75 min practice followed by Chai & social time)
Led Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Beginners‘ Class AND Mysore session

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga has been very popular ever since its introduction to the Western Yoga world – and there are many reasons for it. It is one of the original and purest forms of Yoga. Its flowing movement synchronized with breath makes it a moving meditation. It energizes and purifies the body and it stills the mind.

We live in a time where the busyness of the mind negatively affects our physical and mental well-being. Hence the stilling of the mind is paramount for good health. This practice makes your body strong and subtle and your mind becomes clearer and calmer. It is one of the most amazing Yoga methods to stay fit, healthy and to be mindful.

The practice is easily tailored to anybody of any age (from 12 years onwards). This class is led by Doris & Urs, two passionate teachers who have shared a love for this practice for 20 years and practice it on a regular basis. Together they are offering an in-depth introduction into this amazing practice in a safe, welcoming and warm environment. The Criffel Station Woolshed is a stunning place to practice Yoga surrounded by nature.

Long-term Ashtangis are guided in Mysore between 5.30 – 6.45pm
