YIN + MEDITATION COURSE (Last for 2017!)

YIN + MEDITATION COURSE (Last for 2017!)

Tonic Yoga (map)



In a structured 6 week course we explore key yin postures to open and soothe the body to prepare it to come to stillness for meditation. 

Yin yoga is an opportunity to balance the yang energy that we accumulate in our modern lifestyles. Yin postures are mostly floor-based passive and gentle (this is not a strong physical practice), and are held for longer periods of time (usually 3-5 minutes). The long holds enable us to enter an almost meditative state, making it a deeply relaxing experience. Yin postures are renowned for unlocking tension and increasing range of motion - hence assisting you to find a comfortable seat for meditation. 

Once our bodies are ready, we will step into practicing different meditation techniques to help quiet the 'monkey' mind and unveil our deeper levels of consciousness. We will experiment with breathing techniques, guided meditation and yoga nidra. No experience in yin yoga or meditation is required. 


YOUR REWARD: 6 weeks of blissful sleep and tools to demystify and enjoy meditation.

Woo Woo Wednesdays!

Woo Woo Wednesdays!


8 NOVEMBER - 13 DECEMBER 2017, 7-8:15PM

Join Hannah every Wednesday night over 6 weeks to sample a collection of classes aimed at diving into the more mystical side of yoga and transformation energy. 

Over the years, Hannah has enjoyed dabbling in the world the esoteric - think crystals, chakras, reiki energy and all the 'woo woo' things many of us are fascinated with but don't always  know how to approach. A lot of the time, this was done secretly, whilst wearing a 'corporate mask.'

Well now the mask is off, and it is time to share with you all in a very light and accessible way, some of her knowledge. Designed as a 'buffet' of ethereal delights, over 6 weeks we will explore the yogic art conscious breath, thought and movement. Our yoga practices (predominantly yin and restorative yoga, pranayama and nidra) will be peppered with tools and rituals that connect us with our higher selves and the energy body (mudra, mantra, essential oils, crystals, reiki and angel cards).

These classes are designed to guide you towards alignment and a sense of awareness of the world that we cannot see. Once we understand these practices, we can use them to clear stagnant energy, enhance emotional wellbeing and manifest our greatest desires and dreams. 

Classes will be deeply relaxing and mostly guided so you can leave your thinking hats at home. 

Here is the line up: 

WEEK 1: Ground and Connect

Lets land in the space with a rooting practice helping you find your foundations and sink back into the essence of your being. a great place to grow from. Incorporating essential oils and crystals to your yoga practice can make for a deeply transcendent practice. 

WEEK 2: Chakras in Balance

An insight into the energy body. Just to be sure that we are starting this journey from a place of harmony, we will move through a chakra balancing practice. 

WEEK 3: Access the subconscious

From a clear space, we will plant the seeds of intention deep in our subconscious. Learn about Yoga Nidra, and why it is a powerful (and effortless) way to manifest your truest desires, then practice it!

WEEK 4: Opening to bliss

Combining a sequence of heart opening poses and a splendid array of oils that enliven in us the experience of Joy start to feel the heart sparkle. We will also explore the power of gratitude and operating from a space of love. 

WEEK 5: Crystals & Cards

Connecting with the ancient wisdom of our earth using stones and crystals we use our practice to sharpen our intuition and then call for spiritual guidance, using my all time favourite angel cards. 

 WEEK 6: Align & Transcend

Meditation to crystallise our intentions and open us to creativity and change. Followed by an opportunity to draw from the past five weeks and the messages and lessons arising from within as we practice. Put your thoughts to paper, consider your concept of energy and the unseen. There will be time to ask questions about the practices and rituals learned and to work with the art of manifestation. A wonderful time to do this as we look forward to the New Year. 


If you are thoroughly intrigued, you can join us for the duration of the course for $140: 

We know its a busy time of year and that some of this stuff is a bit 'different' so feel free to sample some classes individually for $25:

Please note that NO Introductory Offers can be used for this course. If you are an existing member or pass holder, you may attend subject to availability. Please note that booking in advance is ESSENTIAL.

Hips + Hamis 6 wk course

Hips + Hamis 6 wk course


14th November – 12 December 2017

Tuesday mornings at 6:30am - 7:30am

Us western yogis have A LOT going on in the lower body. Lots of sitting, driving and shut down expression causes a bunch of tension to acculturate in the hamstrings, hip flexors and pelvis. If you know you’ve got some build up in the hips and hamstrings, this 6 week course is going to give you exactly what you need to feel free in your own body.

The first 3 weeks of this course are dedicated to opening not only the hamstrings but also all the muscles and joints that make up the legs and feet. The second half of the course is where we move into deeper hip opening with a combination of dynamic movement, getting warm and exploring the different psychological and energetic layers of the hip region. Alongside our vinyasa flow we will incorporate yin postures to access the connective tissue around the hip socket.

Join Amanda for this deep dive into the areas of the body that allow us to feel grounded, vital and free to express ourselves through our bodies, choices and actions for greater awareness on all levels of body and mind.


Yoga & Sacred Cacao Ceremony Workshop

Yoga & Sacred Cacao Ceremony Workshop

Friday 1st December 2017

6pm - 7:45pm


...take a journey in to the heart space...


Calling all the curious minds! 

1st of December, marking the very first day of the Summer as we welcome the new season into our lives, gives us a great chance to reconnect and reflect on ourselves. 

Through my co-facilitation of bush walking retreats with Alicia, I have experienced the abundance of energy and the warmth Alicia holds in her heart. I truly feel we are blessed to have her co-facilitate this event.

Through guiding a yoga class, I create a space in each of us to witness what unfolds as Cacao opens our heart, mind and body. As "Yoga" in Sanskrit means to "yoke", to "bind" and "connect", this event will help you connect you within yourself as well as connect us as a community.

*** What is a Cacao Ceremony?

When we intentionally drink Ceremonial Cacao in ceremony, we take a journey into our hearts and gently shift that in which no longer is serving us and with the intent of love from our heart space we can move in to new paradigms within our self. We can journey from a Ceremonial Cacao experience as a more fresh, connected and vibrant version of ourselves. 

Traditionally Ceremonial Cacao was used by the Ancient Mayan Shamans in ceremony to travel beyond the veil ‘to see the unseen’ within ourselves and our reality. For the Ceremonial Cacao to take on a spiritual dimension and differ from other cacao sources, shamans infuse spirit in to the handpicked beans as a form of a blessing.

The spirit of Ceremonial Cacao supports us in connecting in with our hearts and consciousness, aligning with our authenticity and gently supports us in lifting the veil so we can see the truths in our reality. Ceremonial cacao is an ancient plant medicine made from Cacao beans that have been handpicked and blessed (infused with spirit) by shamans in Guatemala, South America.

When we experience a Ceremonial Cacao ceremony with yoga, this dynamic duo supports in shifting aspects of self - emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. The Ceremonial Cacao opens our heart and yoga supports us in moving the energy through the body to transmute, dissolve and transform that in which is no longer of benefit to us. 

“An Indigenous Mayan myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony. Ceremonial cacao is then the Food for the Shift.” extract from Chocolate Yoga
