Welcome to the Port Lincoln School of Yoga

Port Lincoln School of Yoga was established in 2014 by five Port Lincoln yoga teachers, with the intention of honouring the ethos of yoga by creating a sense of community and collaboration with local accredited yoga teachers.

The yoga teachers came together to share a common space for classes, eliminating competition for class participation within a small community. This has enabled teachers to share equipment, costs and resources, with the aim of providing professional support and mentoring to one another and new yoga students. As a result, we have been able to offer yoga within our community at a price that is accessible to people in regional communities and in a reputable space to mentor new students.

Our collaboration has continued to grow and evolve. We are fortunate to offer a variety of yoga classes including hatha, balance, yin/restorative, vinyasa, beginners, yoga/pilates, yoga synergy, children’s yoga, prenatal & postnatal yoga. Since 2016 we have offered sister circle gatherings, and in 2018 we added meditation classes to our timetable, thus providing a broad range of safe and supportive services to our community from skilled, trained practitioners.

We are proudly affiliated with the International Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA). The IYTA’s primary activity is to conduct yoga teacher training and an Association for yoga trained teachers in Australia and internationally. The idea of community collaboration was recognised by the IYTA, who have now supported the PLSY by providing scholarships to Port Lincoln yoga students studying the 460 hour internationally recognised IYTA teacher-training program.  PLSY offers mentoring support through a variety of lineages including Tirumali Krishnamacharya and BKS Iyengar.

Yoga will revitalise you by strengthening, toning and flexing the body, while also calming the mind and developing the breath.

We offer various classes 7 days a week to cater for everyone from the beginner student to the more experienced. Our Yoga classes are $15/$13 Concession. Please aim to arrive 5-10 minutes early to class. All equipment is provided for your use.

Our Yoga classes are held upstairs in the Studio Room at the Nautilus Arts Centre, with entry via Washington Street which is shared with Country Arts SA and the Green Room. Parking is also on Washington Street (please do not park in Nautilus Arts Centre driveway). Please contact for more information if required.

Please inform the teacher of any health issues, concerns or pregnancy before class begins.

Our Sankalpa (resolve or hearts desire) for our collaboration & community:

Let us be protected together and accepted together

Let us not resent each other

Let us be guided to each other and ourselves

Let us achieve strength together

And may our learning ever shine

Namaste

 

 

 

 

 

About Yoga

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely.

Hatha is translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility and in our mind we create feelings of calm and quiet. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose.

Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.

Yoga provides a sense of physical and emotional well being, resulting in improved health, fitness, muscle tone and stamina. Emotionally, it brings peace of mind and an inner calm.
