This active yet focused class will help each member of the family become more centered and calm, while increasing flexibility.

4)    Invite Us to Work

The New Year brings new resolutions.  One of them is usually better physical fitness.  So with that in mind, we will continue to offer you a gratuity of $50 for every referral from you that books us for on-site Company classes in the work place.  We can offer Yoga and Pilates.  A minimum of 10 classes must be pre-booked.  Keep talking with your friends, family, relatives and co-workers!  Ask them if it's okay to pass their contact information on to me, and I'll do the rest.

Imagine relieving your stress and fatigue as you experience the journey to inner peace without ever having to leave the building. Acquaint yourself with the ultimate of rejuvenation and relaxation as you learn to harmonize your body, mind, breath and spirit. Encouraged to work at your own pace, all levels of fitness and flexibility are welcome. Leave the class feeling relaxed with a renewed sense of energy. Both men and women welcome.

We offer qualified instructors to come to your work place and guide classes at lunch time, after work, or whatever time suits you and your fellow co-workers.  Enjoy a break and take some time for yourself and join us for Yoga or Pilates at your place of work.  Call 64-421-9872 now to book the most convenient time for you or to find out more information.

5)    Detect Breast Lumps Early

Give the gift of saving lives.  The Breast Chek Kit is a simple device placed over the breast while doing your  monthly self exam. Capable of finding small lumps by amplifying the feel of them under the fingertips, this easy to use device can help save lives by early detection.

8)    Try this Pose

KNEE PRESS (Pavanmuktasana/Vatayanasana)


With the festive season upon us, I thought a good gas relieving posture should be on the menu.  So enjoy your food knowing that you have the great Wind Relieving Posture to top off the meal.  Really, that's what this posture is best known for!

You'll also find this posture is great for reducing lower backache and easing tension in the neck and shoulders.  Improved digestion helps eliminate constipation. 

1. Lay on your back with your legs straight, arms at your sides, palms down. Inhale.
2. Exhaling, tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Inhale.
3. Exhaling, raise your right knee into your chest. Clasp your hands around your knee, pulling it toward your chest. 4. Pressing your sacrum into the floor, hold posture and breathe.  Relax your shoulders and neck.
5. Inhale. Exhaling, return your leg to the floor.
6. Repeat on the left side.

If you're uncomfortable with the other leg extended, bend it and put your foot on the floor.

Please note: Do this posture at your own risk.

Do nothing with the body but relax; shut firm the mouth and silent remain; empty your mind and think of nothing. Like a hollow bamboo rest at ease with your body. Giving not nor taking, put your mind at rest. Thus practicing, in time you will reach buddhahood. ~Tilopa
