Welcome to my website and thank you for your interest in yoga and meditation.
I teach weekly Yoga classes and Meditation in the Sivananda Hatha Yoga tradition, in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia.
At present these classes are held at the Scout Halls in Booval and Eastern Heights. Please check the classes  & cost page for the details
All classes are open to beginners, intermediate and more advanced. Newcomers are most welcome, please arrive 10 minutes before the class starts. Your first class is free, no obligations to continue.
These Hatha Yoga Classes are based on the five points of yoga: proper exercise (Asana), proper breathing (Pranayama), proper relaxation (Savasana),  vegetarian diet, positive thinking & meditation (Dhyana).
We practise yoga postures and exercises for strength, flexibility and balance. As well as breathing exercises and a guided final relaxation.
First free trial class!

Besides the weekly Yoga Classes, I teach a monthly hatha yoga class on a Friday evening. Followed by Satsang Meditation, Mantra chanting, Yoga philosophy and I share some of my own life wisdom. https://hathayogaipswich.com.au/satsang/

In 2020 I organise and teach two weekend yoga & meditation Retreats on the Sunshine Coast, in beautiful Queensland. The Venue for the Retreats is the Luther Heights Youth Camp in Coolum Beach. Our own private area is the Cross Ridge Camp, 4 dorms with it’s own bathroom each. Hall for yoga & meditation overlooking the ocean. Delicious vegetarian meals. https://hathayogaipswich.com.au/retreat/

The dates are:

Friday 27th – Sunday 29th of March 2020.

Friday 28th – Sunday 30th of August 2020.

    Hi there

    Ive never actually been to a Yoga class before but have been told by many people that it’s something I should look into. I need something to help me focus on studies, clear my head and help me deal with stress. I’m just a little skepticle as I’m a 26 year old guy an I’m worried I’ll be out of place.

    Are you aware of how to help control the Kundalini energy when it’s been activated in my system? I can’t find anyone local in Ipswich area who can help me. It was activated last November & I feel all alone. No-one understands what I’m going through. I’ve only found overseas websites with info, but I prefer someone close by to help me. A support group would be perfect. Can you help in any way?


    • premaria June 15, 2017 at 1:04 pm #

      If anyone reading this post has experience with Kundalini awakening could you please come forward and comment on this post, to offer advice and support to Karen. Thank you very much, blessings of Divine Love. NAMASTE

    Thanks, Patsy.
