Description of Classes
This class is suitable for anyone new to yoga, no matter what age or fitness level. There is strong focus on the preparation of poses, sometimes with the use of props. Simple breathing exercises are also introduced to improve posture, a greater sense of calm and an enhanced sense of self. This class is also great for those returning to yoga after a break or for those seeking a gentle class.
Rise and Shine:
A regular morning yoga routine will help clear your thoughts so that you remain calm and clear headed for your daily activities and interaction with others. You will be lead through a dynamic class designed to wash away any stress from your night’s sleep and re-energise you for the rest of the day. The practice will ease you out of bed and connect you to your breath, before we start warming up the body. We will then continue on to some gentle sun salutations and move into a number of stronger poses to build strength and create openness in the entire body.
This is held at the Tuggeranong Seniors Centre on Cowlishaw St
Preparation & What to Expect
- Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your first class to complete a new student form.
- Try to allow at least 90 minutes after a meal before attending a class ( or have a light snack if necessary).

What to Expect:
A typical class with Jenny will include asana (physical postures/poses), pranayama (breathing), and shavasana (relaxation).
The postures are designed to work with the body, to open energy blockages and cleanse the body. You will learn to use the breath as a tool when moving in and out of these postures, enabling the release and opening of tight muscles. The class will end with a deeply rewarding relaxation to rest the nervous system and quiet the mind.
Learn the foundations of yoga in a friendly and safe environment, with other beginners. It doesn’t matter how flexible or strong you are, but you will feel the benefits after the first class.
