My name is Gen. I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years with a strong base in Iyengar yoga and with teacher training in Vinyasa Flow yoga and Restorative yoga.
The appeal of yoga and the thing that keeps me coming back is that it is more than just physical exercise. Yoga approaches experience through 5 layers of being – the physical, the breath, the mental, discernment/wisdom and a sense of connection. I particularly like to encourage people’s use of discernment and body awareness when they practice as it is key to avoiding harm both physically and mentally in your practice.
I offer a variety of classes from vinyasa to the still quiet innercise of hatha and restorative yoga. Each class works to build your concentration, focus, strength, breath control and self-awareness. I teach for the purpose of daily functional movement and resilience as opposed to teaching for “party tricks’ or circus acts.
Classes run during school terms. Term 4 for 2018 has started. No need to book, just turn up. The classes run in Evatt are in my backyard studio so if you rock up and feel nervous about walking into someone’s backyard, just pluck up the courage and walk on in..I sometimes have a blackboard with yoga written on it, but the rain keeps washing it off so it is not always there! See picture below.
I also offer personalised classes for small groups if you can get together a group of 4 or more friends, both as a one off or ongoing.
