Here’s what (just some) yogis say

Going to Ann-Maree’s yoga is like returning home after a hard days work. I feel welcomed, safe and supported every step of the way. No one is ever pushed beyond their capabilities, and yet, the challenges are all there to extend ourselves as much as we wish - Bronnie

Awesome knowledge and insightful tutor, Ann-Maree really brings yoga to life - Rob

Ann-Maree is such a beautiful person and an amazing yoga teacher. With such a caring nature, her yoga classes always seem to focus on the exact flows and poses my body and mind require on that day. She is welcoming and offers such a warm, happy and embracing persona to everyone who walks through her door. I find it such a privilege to be part of her yoga world - C

The yoga community you have created is so special; a great group of people and just what I needed to pause for the day - Kerry

Previous Events

Myofascial Release Workshop,

June 22nd 1-4pm, 2024

Myofascial release is a term broadly used to imply work on the muscles and fascia to eliminate pain and restore motion. We use sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions with or without movement to allow the connective tissue fibres to reorganise themselves in a more flexible, functional way. Fascia is very densely woven connective tissue that covers and connects every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all the internal organs. It’s one structure that connects from head to toe without interruption.
