Yoga is the Sanskrit word for “union”, referring to the connection between the body, breath and mind. Many people are familiar with physical aspects of yoga like the poses and movements but the practice actually encompasses a number of different spiritual, physical and mental practices used to cultivate self awareness, health and happiness.
With origins in ancient India, the practice has been around for thousands of years with modern yoga, which refers mainly to the physical practices, having becoming popularised worldwide since the 1980s. As part of our Mind & Body Program at Re-Creation Malvern, we offer a diversity of yoga classes with some of Melbourne’s best instructors.
We believe yoga classes are for everybody and everyone. You don’t have to be a nimble 20 something or a yogi to enjoy our classes (but you’re still more than welcome if you are!). We recommend you schedule a regular class as part of a balanced health and fitness regime. All our yoga classes are led by experienced and friendly teachers who will make you feel welcome.
