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.

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

Photo Session, February 2020

Back in February 2020, I had a beautiful morning with Amanda Rossow Photography. For a photo session in Cameron Park in Booval.

It just took me 2 months to finally post some of these photos. Last but not least, have a browse through the album.

More photos to follow in upcoming posts, here on the website in different sections and newsletters. Thank You Amanda !!

Early Bird 6am Yoga class

Starting on Thursday morning 6th of February 2020 we’ll have a new yoga class at 6am – 7am.

At the Scout Hall in Cameron Park, Easton Street, Booval.

This class will run through the months of February and March. Then we’ll decide, if and how long it will continue, as the days get shorter. Maybe into April and May, before Winter.

In any case, if you are interested in this early morning yoga class, please join as much as possible. The interest has been good, for an early morning yoga class. Now you just need to show up and roll out your mat.

The cost for the class is $15, or a tick on your class pass.

60 minutes hatha yoga class. We will practice the Sun Salutation, basic yoga postures & stretches, and a short final relaxation. To get you ready for a joyful, motivated start into the new day.

See you soon early birds. Thank you!!

Yoga classes for the remainder of 2019

Besides being a busy time of the year with Christmas and end of 2019 approaching fast, we are all affected by the current bush fires in our wider area and all over Australia. The smoke haze, bad & dry air, the lack of rain puts extra stress on all of us and our bodies.

So it’s even more important to practice some yoga, meditation, conscious relaxation and deep breathing. Even a class or two over the next few weeks is helpful.

Below is the current timetable until Friday 20th of December 2019.

Cameron Park, Scout Hall, Easton Street, Booval:

Tuesday, 6:00pm–7:30pm (last class 17/11/19)

Raceview Scout Hall, 32 Taylor Street, Eastern Heights:

Tuesday, 9am – 10:30am (last class 17/11/19)

Thursday, 6:30pm – 8pm (last class 19/12/19)
