However it feels, one thing is for certain- it WILL release tension deep within your joints. Focusing on hips, lower back and spine, Yin Yoga creates and maintains space, freedom and health within your joints.

It’s Yoga, but not as you Know it.
Kundalini Yoga uses previously secret, ancient and powerful techniques originating in India and brought to the West by Yogi Bhajan in 1968. Practicing Kundalini Yoga helps to raise consciousness so we can better understand ourselves and live a more harmonious life. Involving a dynamic blend of physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation, mantra and relaxation, Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by anyone regardless of age, fitness and experience.
According to ancient eastern wisdom, Kundalini is the store of latent energy lying dormant at the base of the spinal column. Through the practice of Kundalini Yoga, this energy source is stimulated to rise up the spinal column and activate the pineal gland. Once activated, the pineal gland enables you to use the energy of the mind and emotions in a more positive and effective way.
A regular Kundalini Yoga practice builds the capacities of self-awareness and inner strength in order to let go of negative emotional programming and help you fulfil your highest potential.

Mondays and Wednesdays, 7:15pm with Rob
Practicing Hatha Yoga -Moderate Yoga, including meditations, breathing exercises, variety of Yoga postures and to conclude with Shavasana -resting pose.
Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga that emphasizes physical exercises to master the body along with mind exercises to withdraw it from external objects. The word haṭha literally means “force” in Sanskrit, and may have this association because the early Indians believed that its practice was challenging and “forced its results to happen” on the yogi. The term “Hatha yoga” connotes a system of supplementary physical techniques within the broader concept of Yoga.
Solar & Lunar Yoga
Solar and Lunar Yoga classes start July 25th with Angela for 5 weeks. The first week starts with the Earth element for grounding, stabilizing qualities cultivated in our bodies with hip-openers….. oh yes please!
Two classes will be held for each of the five elements of nature: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Space.
For every element, two waves will be offered:
- Solar wave – the dynamic qualities boost our energy – usually practiced in the morning to get us going!
- Lunar wave – the soothing meditative qualities allow us to dive into ourselves – ideal for a good nights’ sleep afterwards!
Earth: grounding, stabilizing qualities, cultivated in our bodies with hip-openers
Air: love, gratitude & compassion, cultivated with backbends in standing poses
Fire: self-confidence, balance & determination, cultivated by building a strong core and practicing arm balances
Water: passion, creativity & integrity, cultivated with backbends closer to the earth
Space: self-expression & healing, having a powerful voice, cultivated with the interaction of all elements.
Qoya is a movement practice for women that invites them to come home to themselves. Through movement, we remember our essence as Wise, Wild and Free.
Qoya is movement with meaning. Through movement, we learn to trust ourselves…to tap into our own inner wisdom.
What is a Qoya class like?
It’s a bit like yoga, meditation and dancing in your living room with friends. There’s time to rest, to dance, to sweat, to laugh, to pray, to meditate and to be in community with women – all in 90 minutes.
Why should I try Qoya?
It’s like coming home to yourself, in a deep and joyful way. If it peaks your curiosity – even slightly – give it a try.
Classes: Tuesdays at 7:30pm
Cost: $30/session or a 10 pack for $250
Bring: Water bottle and socks to keep your feet warm during meditation.
Shanti Dharma runs meditation classes for beginners and advanced practitioners.
The beginner classes focus on relaxation and stress management. You will experience a definite “wind down” in these classes as stress leaves your physical and mental body. With simple breathing techniques used to calm the body and mind you will have the opportunity to slow down and recharge your batteries.
Advanced meditation classes are aimed at deep personal transformation. In these classes you will be gently guided and assisted to release the energetic blocks that are holding you back from reaching your full potential. Stuck emotions, negative thoughts and core beliefs that no longer serve you can all be released and replaced with more life affirming thoughts and positive beliefs. Through working with the energy body in these powerful meditations, your “life” as you experience it will also change.
When: Every Thursday at 7.30-8.30pm

Satsang is a sanskrit word that means “gathering together for the Truth” or, more simply “being with the Truth”. Truth is what is real, what exists. So all there is, is Truth. Whenever something increases your experience of truth, it opens your heart and quiets your mind. Conversely, whenever something, such as a thought, fear, or judgement, limits or narrows your experience of Truth, the heart contracts and the mind gets busier. We are all equally endowed with this capacity to discriminate the Truth.
Our Sunday Satsangs use a combination of discourse, guided meditation, blessings, chanting and devotional song to fall deeper into Truth. The end result is an increased feeling of connection and well-being!
We are Shanti Mission, a multi-faith school for the Soul. Everyone from every walk of life is very welcome.
When: Sundays, 9:30 – 11am
These Satsangs are run by heartfelt donation on the day ($20-$30 suggested).
