About the Event

What it is all about?

Relax, recharge and renew with Hatha Yoga with Chitra. Learn and practice a variety of Yoga techniques designed to help us de-stress, bring balance and good health to all our bodily systems and bring peace and calm to the mind.

Classes are in the Integral Yoga style – a very versatile approach to Yoga that is accessible to everybody and focuses on letting go of competition and ensuring that everyone can feel comfortable to practice in a way that honours their body and suites their personal needs. Classes are suitable for both beginners and seasoned Yoga practitioners of all abilities.

What will we cover?

Classes will include instruction and practice in:

  • Yoga postures to encourage the body through its full range of natural movement, build flexibility and strength and help to balance and bring good health to all our bodily systems.
  • Guided deep relaxation to invite body and mind to profoundly relax, recharge and heal.
  • Yoga breathing and meditation techniques to help us energize, cleanse and harmonize all levels of our being and bring peace and calm to the mind.

Classes are suited to all levels of experience with Yoga and are tailored to suit varying needs and abilities. Sessions include Yoga asana (postures), Yoga nidra (guided deep relaxation), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation, ending with peace chants where we can offer the benefits of our practice out into the world.

Chitra will offer a wide range of options for how to practice each technique, encouraging everyone to be in the moment, to honour their own bodies and have fun!

Who will be teaching?

Chitra Stern has been teaching Yoga since 1989, in Australia, India and the USA. She has trained with the Gita School of Yoga in Melbourne and with Integral Yoga in the USA, and is certified to teach Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced and Pre-natal/post partum Integral Yoga Hatha classes. She has also completed Integral Yoga Stress Management Teacher Training and has trained with Amy Weintraub, completing level 1 and 2 Yoga for Depression teacher trainings. Chitra is also a Level 1 Integral Yoga teacher trainer. Her focus in Yoga is on opening to our natural inner peace, freedom and joy by letting go of competition, accepting and enjoying ourselves as we are, being present in the moment and having fun!

Term 2 2024 Information

The Monday morning Hatha Yoga class will run for 10 weeks, commencing Monday 15th of April 2024 until Monday 24th of June 2024 (no class on Monday 10 of June 2024 due to King's Birthday public holiday in Victoria). The cost for the 10 week course is $200 ($180 concession or zoom only). Classes run between 9.30am - 11am.

If you wish to join the class after the term has begun, our booking system will allow you to book for the remaining classes - assuming there is space.

If you wish to book for a single class, rather than the full term, the cost is $25 per class (or $22.50 concession). Single class bookings are only possible once the term has started - assuming there is space.

Classes will be held in person at the Woodend Neighbourhood House and online via zoom. Optional attendance at additional Hatha Yoga classes via zoom is included at no additional charge – details and links to all zoom classes will be provided with your booking. 

Attending face-to-face classes: Please aim to arrive a few minutes early so you can settle in and relax.

Please bring your own Yoga mat, blanket and cushion/bolster and any other props you have and like to use. If you do not have a Yoga mat, bring a blanket and large towel.
