Shellharbour City Yoga provides yoga for everybody, we are an inclusive studio for every fitness level, shape, age, ethnicity, and gender. We value community and substance and love helping people feel better in their bodies. From better posture to improved mental health, the world of yoga offers all of us a unique chance to connect with ourselves one breath at a time.
Our approach is a mindfulness-based practice. The body and mind are intrinsically connected, practicing yoga, Pilates, and animal flow with the intention to move the body through all ranges of motion with control, encouraging you to listen to your body as your guide to let you know when to ease off and when to go deeper. By learning to connect mind, body, and breath, you will release blockages on a physical and energetic level finishing your practice feeling amazing.
Yin/Restorative Yoga with Meditation
A 60 minute general Hatha class that builds your strength and mobility while creating a feeling of calm. Poses are generally held for a few breaths. Most classes will start with a breath practice and incorporate a blend of standing postures, forward and backbends, and twists. All levels
A gentle flowing practice to help you move fluidly, breathe and release tension while increasing mobility and sense of wellbeing. You will leave feeling supple, relaxed and energised. All levels.
Yin Yoga is a deeply relaxing class that works on the connective tissues and joints of the shoulders, hips, pelvis, and lower spine. It also works with the energetic body, restoring balance. Poses are generally held for 2 to 5 minutes to allow the muscles and tissues to slowly let go and release built-up tension as you relax your mind. 90-minute classes are accompanied with a beautiful 30-minute guided meditation, incorporating sound. All levels.
A fusion of yoga and Pilates to tone, strengthen, stretch and mobilise your body and build body awareness. All levels
Pilates mat classes build correct postural alignment, core strength, and muscle balance. They increase coordination and make day-to-day activities easier as you strenthen your body. It can be of help to those who have chronic back pain through muscular imbalance and restriction. All levels.
A gentle class designed for the over 50's who have less mobility than they used to. This is a good place to start when recovering from injury or illness or for seniors returning to exercise or starting for the first time.
Animal Flow is an innovative bodyweight movement class that combines ground-based movement with elements of various body-weight training disciplines to create a fun, challenging workout that emphasizes multi-planar, fluid movement.
Mobility - Stretch, Release,
A great class for all those who are stiff and tight whether from sitting all day or from the gym or sport. We look at imbalances in the body and work to re-align and find balance. It's a fusion of mobility work with foam rollers, bands, and balls, breathwork, and movement. This class is suitable for everyone who wants to realign and release areas of restriction. Improve your quality of life as you unlock tension and free up connective tissue.
These sessions will explore different modalities to help you find more ease in your body and to work on imbalances that accumulate from daily life and past trauma. The first session will include an analysis of your posture, your range of movement, and movement patterns. It may include hands-on neuromuscular activations to help free up blocked areas.
Hypnotherapy and Health Coaching
Sound Baths, Workshops and Retreats
Transformative sessions that incorporate various modalities including Neuro Linguistic Programming and mindset coaching. We can work on the body all we like but if we don't work on our minds we will always have limitations. The mind and body are intrinsically linked and past traumas and the stories we tell ourselves play out in the body, showing up in imbalance and restriction. By discovering your own unique strengths and working with the unconscious mind we can reprogram your mind as you learn to let go of self-limiting beliefs. Working together we can uncover your essence making room for you to live life to your full potential.
Coming soon. Select classes will be live-streamed so you can practice from home. We will also be offering an online membership with a library of classes to choose from.
