It’s taken me a looong time to discover a handy and helpful yoga studio. A friend recently invited me to a class at the Life & Balance Centre in Glebe.
I trudged along, expecting a sterile studio and hectic class, like the ones I’ve tried in noisy gym rooms. What I discovered, however, was a serene studio and a holistic approach to yoga. The instructor took the time to correct my poses, explain the asanas and their benefits and create a lovely supportive space.
Unfortunately, Glebe is a little out of the way for me to commit to regular classes. Which is why I love my in-home DVD collection. I simply step into the living room, put on a DVD and enjoy an hour-long yoga routine. While the DVDs lack individual instruction, I love not worrying about what’s going on around me.
My faves are the Element collection and Shiva Rea’s range. I also love Tara Stiles’ YouTube channel, one of the many useful online resources for practising yoga at home.
