Congratulations on deciding to try Yoga! It won't be long until you're starting to feel the benefits on and off the mat.
An integrated (holistic) approach to wellbeing involves psychological, physiological and interpersonal wellbeing.
Yoga is more than stretching and breathing!
The Integrated Yoga approach provides an opportunity to practice physical poses and breathing practices to nourish your body, as well as practicing and learning meditation and attention awareness techniques to cultivate mindfulness and support your mental health. The ethical principles of interoception, meta-awareness and compassion for oneself and others are embedded throughout all of the techniques.
Classes are held at our peaceful, fully equipped, air-conditioned studio in semi-rural Upper Caboolture.

New Student Guide
Prior to Class:
Eating/Drinking: It is best to let meals or snacks digest before coming to class. Give yourself 2 hours after a meal before practicing yoga. You may drink water during class as needed, but you may feel more comfortable if you hydrate prior to class.
What to Wear: Please wear comfortable clothes that are not too loose yet stretchy.
What to Bring: A yoga mat, towel, and water.
Communicate: If you have any injuries or limitations, please notify the teacher before class begins.
After the class
Stay hydrated. If you've not been exercising regularly, you may feel like you've had a workout. Try some gentle stretches the next day to keep your muscles relaxed and improve circulation.
As with any fitness or wellness experience, there is a risk of physical injury, please follow the instructions of the program facilitator and listen to your body and stay within your body’s limits. Please inform the facilitator of any existing physical injuries or concerns.
Consult your physician or other health care professional before attending a class and if you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your health care professional. To reduce the risk of injury, never force or strain yourself.
If at any time you feel pain, discomfort, or dizziness, back out of the pose carefully and seek the attention of the teacher immediately.
