You have found our bulletin board! This is the page to check regularly for updates of classes and our latest news.

As the year accelerates to a close, I would like to thank you all for your ongoing commitment to yoga through your attendance at classes. It has also been so encouraging to sense how students and teachers value, respect and cherish our new Yoga space!

December Classes
During the first two weeks of December, Jo Slade and Stephanie will be in Pune, India, to attend the 100th birthday Celebrations in honour of Mr Iyengar. All classes will run as usual, except the 4.30pm Therapy class on Wednesdays, which will not be held on the 5th or 11th of December, and will resume on Wednesday 18th December.

We welcome Sam Smith, Jane Bromley and Jess Jones to our teaching staff. The Hills Yoga School has always been fortunate in the quality and dedication of the teachers it attracts, and Jess, Jane and Sam are no exception to that! They are currently progressing through the Hills Yoga Teacher Training program, and I am confident that you will support and encourage them in this important stage of their development as yoga teachers.

Pre-Christmas Early Morning Intensive
Come along to an early morning intensive where Jo and Stephanie will share their experiences in India with you!
6.10-8.00am on 18th, 19th and 20th of December.

The last class for 2018 will be held Sunday 22nd December. We reopen with a full timetable on Monday 7th of January. There will be no 9am class on Sunday 13th January due to our celebration (see below).

In 2019 our program will also include:

  • Yoga for Teenagers. An 8 week course on Thursdays at 4.30pm during school terms
