Evening Yin Yoga Tuesdays at 5.45pm at Studio Tula, Dunedin
Yin Yoga is a simple practice for everybody and every body. A time to slow down, tune in, and let go of the busyness of life. Allow your body, mind, and heart to explore stillness, discomfort, and softness. In Yin Yoga, floor-based postures are held in stillness for a couple of minutes at a time, creating a slight discomfort for body and mind. Once we soften into this discomfort, we are able to access and release deep-seated tension within. Each week, we explore different themes. Every class contains asana (postures), pranayama (breathwork), and a short meditation to end with.
Love Yourself: 5 Sessions of Self-Love 1st November - 29th November Sunday 10am to 11.30am at Embodiment Collective Dunedin
We all know what self-care is: taking care of your body, your needs, your self. On a deeper level though, Self Love is about accepting and embracing who you are, right here and right now, with compassion, curiosity and kindness. What would your life look like if you weren’t at war with your body, your story, your capacity?
Each and every one of us has a valuable journey to live through, yet it often looks different from what patriarchy and capitalism are leading us to believe. We may feel like we do not live up to the standards of what makes a good mother, a good partner, a good friend… We may crave a sense of belonging, a space to be fully ourselves, an opportunity to shine just as who we are.
Honour who you are and build a loving relationship with your Self. Miriam and Saskia will gently guide you through practices to cultivate self-respect, self-knowledge, and self-awareness towards a loving relationship with who you uniquely are. Five Sunday mornings of community, movement, and stillness through yoga, meditation, journaling, dance, movement & massage. All modalities are accessible to beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Explore these different lenses to gain a fresh perspective of yourself and connect with your innate beauty and untapped potential.
Spaces are limited to 8 individuals.
Join us for all five sessions for $75 – $100 – $ 125 (sliding scale)

Beginners Yoga for Everyone Tuesdays at 2.30pm at South Dunedin Community Rooms
Did you always want to give yoga and meditation a go but you don’t feel comfortable in a yoga studio, your body doesn’t feel like a ‘yoga body’ (spoiler: there’s no such thing as a yoga body), or you can’t afford classes or courses?
Join Saskia for a weekly class at the South Dunedin Community Rooms to learn the foundations of yoga and meditation. Everyone welcome and give what you can ($10 suggested donation). While these classes are geared towards beginners, everyone is welcome to explore foundations and to enjoy an hour of self-care.
Saskia is an experienced yoga and meditation teacher who has been offering yoga to a vast variety of people and bodies. She is very capable of making yoga accessible to many different people.
Please arrive at the space at least 5 minutes early to allow for enough time to settle in and to have a chat with Saskia about your experience and possible physical or mental limitations.
The classes consist of gentle movements, relaxation and meditation. If you can’t sit on the floor, chairs are available. Please bring your own mat and a couple of layers, ie a blanket/socks/jumper. Don’t hesitate to send us a message if you would like to learn more.
