Compliments for online Yoga classes

Over the last three months we had many, daily and weekly online Yoga classes via Zoom. I know joining online is not possible for everyone.

In case you need some motivation and encouragement do give the online Yoga classes a try during this Queensland Winter, then please read some heartfelt feedback I received lately:

Gerbera in our Garden, June 2020.

Hi Maria,

I just wanted to thank you for continuing with yoga during the Covid 19 lockdown. Before the lockdown I would not have considered online but now I am a convert. It is so convenient. There is no travelling involved, I log on to the computer and become part of the online class. Following you through the class is easy as your instructions are clear and seeing you is like you are in my lounge room.

So thank you again,

Tina

Hi Maria

Just a short note to thank you for the on-line yoga classes during this time of isolation. Something to look forward to and keep me in practice.

Really appreciate the classes on these cold mornings when it would be easy to ‘give it a miss’. Miss the company but on-line has a lot going for it.

June

Maria is a wonderful & warm-hearted yoga teacher. Her yoga class has a good structure with pranayama breathing, exercise for each level and at the end of the class a peaceful, relaxing shavasa. She has follower all over the world, I join her online from switzerland. During the Covid19 Lockdown, her yoga class online was really precious and helpful to me. If you‘re looking for a healthy and good doing yoga class, you‘re in right hands there with Maria. OM 🙏🏻🕉🧘🏻‍♀️ Léticia

My September Hiatus

I’m on holidays from September 2nd – September 27th 2019, therefore no Yoga classes with me all of September.

I’ll be back on Tuesday 1st of October 2019, and ready for the new warm Season.

No Yoga Classes at the Scout Hall all of September 2019.

Silvia will teach and cover the Yoga class on Wednesday evening 6:30pm – 8pm, at the PCYC Ipswich.

Silvia also teaches a weekly, morning class at the PCYC. Every Thursday 9:30am – 10:30am.

For cost, terms & conditions, please check the PCYC Website https://www.pcyc.org.au/clubs/pcyc-ipswich/

Or phone the office at 3281 2547. The PCYC Ipswich offers a good variety of fitness classes such as Pilates, Silver Sneakers, etc. and has a 24/7 Gym.

Silvia teaches also a free Yoga class on Monday 6pm – 7pm, at the Croquet Hall in Queens Park. During School terms. This class is free, and part of the Ipswich Council Active Parks Program. You find many other free classes and activities here: https://www.ipswich.qld.gov.au/residents/healthy_lifestyle/active-parks-program

I prepared a sound file for you, with the Sun Salutations (surya namaskar). It’s about 8 minutes long, a good morning practice. You can listen here and/or download it:

Enjoy your practice. Namaste

Yoga Retreat August 2019

So far this year, about once a week someone or two came back to a yoga class, who hasn’t been in class for a while/years. It’s interesting; often when people miss for a long period, they are almost embarrassed to come back to a yoga class. There is no need to be embarrassed to return to the yoga class after a long absence.  As I hear this excuse a lot, if you wan’t to come back to class come back, no questions asked.


The next excuse I hear from people not coming to a yoga class is: “I’m not flexible”.  Well that’s the purpose of yoga to become flexible and allow movement to your own ability. Improve and moving to your own level. 


The same counts for the Yoga Retreat, you can be a complete beginner to attend the 
Yoga & Meditation Weekend in August, Friday 16/8 – Sunday 18/8/2019.

  • We will return to the same venue as last year, Luther Heights Youth Camp in Coolum Beach. The accommodation is very simple, bunk beds, dorm style. But since we occupy only a third or quarter of the beds available, we can spread out nicely. There are separated niches to share with your friends & family. You need to bring your own linen. 
  • Toilets, showers are basic & clean.
  • The vegetarian meals are delicious, and a good variety.
  • Even good coffee (a luxury, not following traditional yoga ashram rules).
  • So rather than a luxury yoga Retreat, this is more a traditional Yoga & Meditation Camp, as they used to be, when Yoga first arrived in the West. Or more like a Yoga Ashram in India, where the focus is on the practice of yoga, rather than a luxury bed & spa. (which is very nice, but has it’s price). 
  • This allows me, to keep the price below $450
  • The cost the for whole weekend is $420 (including the yoga program, accommodation and meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner).
  • We are surrounded by beautiful, peaceful nature, trees and grounds. Views over the ocean and towards Mount Coolum.
  • Spectacular sunrise, to start the day with Sun Salutations and Meditation.
  • Short walk to the beach and Point Arkwright lookout. 
  • A good location and opportunity to immerse into the practice of Yoga. Dust of the winter blues, getting ready for Spring.
  • My friend Amrita Kamala will mostly likely join us again, to play the harmonium.
  • As a new activity this year, we might have a camp fire on Saturday evening. The Camp has the facility for this, but of course this will be weather permitting only. If no fire restrictions.
  • For the Retreat Weekend to go ahead, I need a minimum of 15 -18 bookings. 
  • Please let me know by 31 March 2019, if you are seriously interested to attend the Yoga & Meditation weekend.
  • As by then I can cancel the venue without any extra charges, and of course I would refund your deposit as well. Fingers crossed, that will not be the case. 

Please contact me for any questions and bookings. I can also send you a detailed pdf file by email , or you find all the important details by following this link:

Looking forward to hearing and seeing you,

Prema Maria

Spring is here

Spring is here: how wonderful it is warm and sunny. Now more excuses to stay under the warm blankets and covers. Come out, dust off your Yoga mat, before you feel it’s too hot to do anything.

Try something new, if you have never been to a yoga class.

If your practice got slack over winter, we are still here. Same times, same locations.

Looking forward to welcome you on the Yoga mat.

See you soon, Maria Prema
