It is a slower paced practice with a focus on strengthening as well as lengthening the muscles and has a huge emphasis on breath work.

Hridaya Hatha Yoga
An ALL LEVELS practice. Hridaya means Heart in Sanskrit. In Hridaya we hold traditional yoga asanas for a longer time, encouraging deep relaxation which allows tension to be released, the mind to calm and the body to open to the free flow of energy. Each pose become an opportunity to open the heart and establish a more intimate relationship with yourself and awareness of who you really are. It is a contemplative practice where you develop and learn to rest in the present moment, in pure awareness. Tamara is one of only a few Hridaya Yoga teachers in Australia and we're very excited to have Hridaya on offer at Yoga for All.
An ALL LEVELS practice. Stretch Therapy (ST) is a comprehensive system that includes stretching, fascial
remodelling, strengthening, neural re-patterning, and relaxation. The goals are grace and ease, and this is experienced as enhanced awareness and elegance in movement.ST is suitable for everyone,
regardless of age or fitness level.
We use a number of techniques to improve the Range of Movement (ROM) of the
body; nerves, fascia and muscles are used as ‘gateways’ to change the brain.Re-patterning
inactive muscles are made active; knees, shoulders, and elbows are stabilised; posture
and alignment are made more efficient.
Strengthening the capacity of the whole body to exert force is the emphasis here; most of our techniques are body-weight only, and all involve the ‘core’. Relaxation The forgotten part of any health optimisation program. Here, ‘relaxation’ is used as a fundamental part of rejuvenation and regeneration practises. Together, the Stretch Therapy elements enable anyone to improve flexibility, and to perform ordinary and extraordinary tasks with greater ease and better performance,and for longer in life.
Stretch Therapy is a safe and efficient way for anyone to achieve grace and ease in
daily life, whether as an office worker, or an athlete. Stretch Therapy is used by
pregnant women, teenagers, sportspeople, coaches, employers, and men and women
of all ages.
