Yoga can be a life changing practice and a wonderful way to cultivate a happier, healthier and more mindful life.

Yoga is not about perfection, performing a beautiful pose or a competition of flexibility. It’s not exclusive to young people or those who are already flexible, athletic, or spiritual.

Yoga has been a traditional contemplative practice for thousands of years and is one of the most ancient forms of mind-body exercise.

Centred Ground offers both small tailored classes led by a qualified physiotherapist, as well as general yoga classes. Our classes are accessible and inclusive, regardless of your gender, age, current level of flexibility or fitness, ability or injuries. You’ll be in a class that is safe, effective and fun.

Scientific research is beginning to explain the effects and therapeutic benefits of yoga:

  • Improved concentration
  • Stress reduction – and relaxation techniques that can be used in times of stress
  • Improved coordination and balance
  • Improved quality of life
  • Increased muscle strength and tone
  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduced pain and stiffness
  • Better awareness of the body and mind
  • Better sleep
  • Yoga is also wonderful for us as we age…increased balance and coordination can help injury prevention as our bodies mature

yoga class types

Beginner level = for those new to yoga or with little experience. This class, while still challenging, is a slower pace and focusses mainly on the foundational poses of yoga. Beginner’s will learn to work toward inversions such as handstand and shoulder stand (Sarvangasana).

General level = for those who have some previous experience and a reasonable level of fitness. In this class we cover a wider variety of poses and a different focus each week. Inversion practices are included.

Mixed level = All levels of experience welcome – options will be given for each level, so that you can choose what suits you on any given day.

Restorative = slower paced, gentle and supported poses suitable for both beginner and experienced. This is a class to bring calm to the nervous system.

the space

Centred Ground provides a relaxing and intimate space diffused with aromatic essential oils.

All yoga mats and props are provided. You are welcome to bring your own mat if you prefer.

Change rooms and space to leave your belongings are available outside the yoga room.

Class numbers are limited so it is recommended to pre-book your spot to avoid disappointment.


Please wear comfortable clothing: tops and bottoms that are light, breathable, and form-fitting so you can easily move around.

Find a top that won’t fall down or bunch up while you’re doing inverted (upside down) poses. If you’re wearing long pants, make sure they are not too baggy and the legs don’t extend past your feet to avoid stepping on them while holding your poses. It’s also helpful to see your feet, ankles and knees, so you might like to wear shorts or leggings.

Yoga is a barefoot practice – there is space for you to leave your shoes and socks before you enter the yoga room.
