No need to be able to touch your toes to do yoga. Yoga is about combining bodily movement with breathing and mindfulness. It’s a great way to become fit and healthy!

We also have a great new school holiday yoga programme for young people ages 11-17 years. This amazing workshop will produce positive changes in your youth.

Guru Purnima 2017 – Sunday 9th July


The lunar event of Guru Purnima is a worldwide celebration where yogis, students, and teachers all gaze at the mid-year full moon – a symbol of deep wisdom and inner-reflection. The full moon acts as an intermediary, spiritually and psychically connecting the wisdom and blessings of the teacher or personal guru with students or sādhakas.

Join Ali Hale Tilley from 5 pm -7 pm in a full moon meditation blessing. Ali will be sending empowerment to students and yogis via the full moon light on Sunday 9th July.

If you would like a special blessing on Guru Purnima email Ali at or Or receive a blessing from Ali in person by calling (06) 327 4108.
