Mana’s yoga studio is a space to retreat, practice, move, meditate and be part of a growing community. In our spacious, light filled studio we offer ongoing weekly classes in Hatha Yoga and Pre/Postnatal Yoga.
Our studio also hosts regular workshops and events that invite the opportunity to delve deeper into the wisdom of various practices. We believe that Yoga is for everybody and this is something we express through our classes. All levels are welcome to practice with us.
By offering different variations we challenge and reward each student with results that benefit both body and mind.
Prenatal Yoga in person
Prenatal Yoga classes specifically designed for the journey of pregnancy. Curated to be a therapeutic blend of bodywork, breath and meditation, interweaving childbirth education, Prenatal Yoga will physically and mentally prepare you for birth. There is a focus on active birth techniques, relaxation as well as wisdom and knowledge that will support you through each stage of your pregnancy and birthing journey. Linking yoga postures with the breath will lead you to new discoveries, bringing awareness to the mind, body and spirit.
The intention is to instill you with the courage, confidence and trust to combine comprehensive understanding together with your instinct and intuition when birthing your baby. Our teacher, Sue Lee brings in over 20 years of experience in specialised bodywork therapies, natural health modalities and a passion for working with expectant mothers. She has trained with many renowned experts in the field of pre and postnatal therapy, bodywork and yoga. Our classes can be joined anytime after the first trimester.
We are now able to be back in the studio, places are strictly limited and we ask that you are completely well when attending class
Mums & Bubs Yoga in studio
Mums and bubs yoga is a weekly space to fill your own well and re-centre. The practice supports mother and baby bonding and is a way to spend time with other mums in your area. The practice focuses on strengthening and stabilising the core and pelvic floor, and opening the shoulders and upper back.
At any time you are welcome to attend to your baby by rocking, feeding or changing them in the studio. Each class completes with a guided relaxation and short, seated meditation.
The class is suitable to attend anytime from 6 weeks after a vaginal birth and 8 to 10 weeks after a Caesarean birth. After a Caesarean, please confirm with your midwife or your GP/OB to make sure that your body has began to heal enough that you can safely practice yoga. You are welcome to continue until your baby is at trotting age
Dynamic Hatha Yoga Online
In-person & Online Dynamic Hatha Yoga Casual Class
Thursdays 6:15pm - 7:45pm AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
In this class you will receive experienced teaching and delve into all aspects of yoga from the physical to the spiritual.
My intention for this new Dynamic Hatha Yoga class is to nurture a community of students who are sincere in learning more about yoga and deepening both their asana and spiritual practice based on non-dual Tantra teachings and practices.
This class is for intermediate or more advanced stages of practice as we will regularly delve into inversions, backbends and balancing poses as well as chanting scared mantras, pranayama, meditation and view teachings/contemplations!
Cultivating a healthy and strong body is a necessary aspect of the path so expect rich
teaching cues that will help guide you to experience all asanas in their fullness, whilst making space for your individual ability and body type.
And if you are not quite there yet with your asana or spiritual practice, I encourage you to first attend at least three or four beginner courses with me prior to joining this class!
I have been doing Sues Prenatal Yoga classes, and the education you receive through is like no other. It is like having your own Doula weaving labor techniques through your sessions. I loved her education so much myself and my husband just completed her private 2 hour birthing education class. It was the most information I have received my whole pregnancy and left me feeling empowered going into my birth. My husband could not speak more highly of the education he received and now feels he understands how he can better support me. Thank you so much Sue!
