‘Modern Yoga is based on four main elements that bring together many ancient philosophies and teachings… Practice of these four elements will set you on a path to a more fulfilling life. You will reach a new level of physical wellness and awareness. You will be lighter and stronger. Your mind will be calm and your heart will be open. You will feel a youthfulness you might have forgotten you once had. You will be more energetic and energized. You will be more powerful, in mind, body and spirit. I have no doubt this will be true for anyone who begins this journey’.
Yoga is ideal for beginners as you don’t need to be an experienced yogi to enjoy the benefits it offers – it’s a gentle, yet powerful way to increase flexibility, strength, balance and inner peace! Julie teaches general yoga classes for all levels, incorporating Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga poses and sequences. Variations for more experienced yogis and pregnant ladies are also given and classes always end with a relaxing meditative pose, lying on the mat.
All adults and older children are welcome at all classes :).

Private classes are now available at The Blue Shed yoga studio in Goondiwindi. They’re an ideal way to receive personalised guidance on poses that will benefit your unique body and physical condition. A private class can also be a great introduction to yoga before joining the group classes. The hourly cost can be combined with a personal wellbeing and/or weightloss kinesiology session as well!
‘A great boon of yoga is the happiness it brings, a state of self-reliant contentment… Yoga is not about external display but internal cultivation’.
What to bring:
BYO water bottle as well as a yoga mat, for comfort and grip during poses. You’re also invited to bring a blanket for warmth during relaxation and a cushion for support in certain poses, as safety and comfort is all important. At the yoga studio in Goondiwindi there will be some yoga blocks, bolsters and belts available to try out and see which of these props may be most helpful for you. You’re also welcome to order any of them directly online.
What to wear:
You can wear loose-fitting or stretchy exercise clothes, just what you feel most comfortable in. The great thing about true ‘yoga’ (a Sanskrit word meaning ‘union of body, mind and spirit’) is that by definition, it’s personal. We wear what personally feels best to exercise in, we find our own ideal level to take the poses to (some days we need a more gentle practice than others) and we honour the fact we’re all different, yet all equal!
‘I have taken a few yoga classes with Julie and she is amazingly supportive and helpful – I was the rawest of beginners, not even that phased Julie!!’
