There is always more to explore

Yoga is described as an ‘ocean of lore’. Deepen your understanding of yoga and never stop learning. Integrate mind, body and breath and learn to adapt your practice to the inevitable obstacles that arise. Those obstacles become our greatest teachers in fact. Skills can continue to evolve over years and decades. 

Students from other methods are most welcome to come in and explore this multi-faceted, complex and rich method. Iyengar Yoga is a practice for life!

50+ YOGA

A gentle introduction for mature beginners

Become stronger, regain some lost mobility and feel more peaceful, in a process that requires kindness, effort and dedication. This senior’s yoga class in Newcastle takes a more gentle approach, but follows the Introductory syllabus. You can attend as part of the Introductory course or casually. 

 Wednesdays  1.00-2.15pm during the 10-week terms

“I recently commenced a Beginner’s class at Hamilton Yoga… I was rather daunted about starting because I am a little stiff and lacking in flexibility. I needn’t have worried as the school and it’s teachers, David and Amanda, are both skilled and supportive and I am already feeling a positive difference with my body.” Sarah
