If you've seen any of our social media posts you will know that we have a lot of male yogis, which is awesome!

 Infact we have a men's only yoga class, these men are strong, they are sportsman, they are hilarious and most importantly they don't give 2 hoots what people think of them attending yoga.

Why is there an issue with men doing yoga? too feminine? too girly? must be because the yoga teacher is good looking? 

Well we are here to tell the world, what a load of nonsense. Men who attend yoga, ROCK. They're getting healthier, fitter, stronger , improving flexibility and ultimately succeeding in their sports!

Now why exactly would you want to miss out on all that? because your mate is teasing you? so next time your on the golf course...

In yoga we believe in focusing on the positive aspects of life, the joy and the love. Becoming a calmer person, becoming a more positive person. Trying not to focus on all the negative things around us.

Inhale positively. Exhale negativity. 

When you arrive at yoga class, you're not worried about what you look like. It's not pretentious. It's not about what brand of clothing you're wearing. We are all there to grow, emotionally and physically.

Inhale positively. Exhale negativity. 

For that hour and a quarter, your sole focus is on yourself. Not kids, not work, not errands, just you. In our busy lives who gets to do that! You are actually taking a time out for yourself.

Inhale positively. Exhale negativity. 

There is never a time I've left class and n...

I have actively participated in sports as far back as I can remember ….. from cricket to hockey to soccer to tennis during my school life, and then from squash to golf to cycling (and the rest) in my adult life. In 2014 I had an accident whilst mountain biking,  and injured my knee (posterior cruciate ligament). I was told to lay off squash and cycling for 6 to 9 months. I was devastated and frustrated. I might add that I could not help but notice that over the years my posture was gradually becoming closed and stooped and I was losing flexibility throughout my body.

Towards the end of 2014 little did I know that my life was about to change. My new neighbour introduced herself and I soon found out that she was a yoga teacher. I was curious! And s...

Are you the type of yogi who prefers the gym yoga classes or do you just love going to a private yoga studio? or are you not phased at all?

If your not phased at all, I think you're lucky! you've mastered the art of blocking out the noises that are created in a gym. You can lie on your mat, during savasana and completely relax, even though all you can hear is the BANG of the weights dropping to the ground on the level above you. You absolutely are focused and don't wonder about how structurally safe the floor slab is after continual abuse. You don't mind other gym goers quickly "popping In" to fetch a block or some other equipment or the people who walked in halfway through the class. What about the people who start snacking during the class?!

If...

Two little girls , not even two years old became playground friends. Two little girls and their moms. That's how we ; Monique and I (Gaynor) met in 2013!

 I have one daughter and Monique has a daughter and a son, they all started at the same pre-primary. We got to know each other at kiddies birthday parties and chatting in the parking lot at school, waiting to fetch our little ones.  Monique had a broken ankle during this time, which in a round about way kind of lead us to where we are now! This is how the subject of yoga came up (thankfully right?) Monique couldn't wait to get her cast off so that she could start teaching again. So once the cast was off, I joined her yoga class at the gym.

INSTANTLY HOOKED is putting it lightly. WO...
