My First Ever Yoga Class … it’s not what you think!

I think back to my first yoga class, back in 1999 in London. It was a difficult time in my life, a big relationship break up and nowhere fixed to live, a super stressful (but awesome) job, and really being very unhappy in myself as I papered over the cracks in my life with too Read More

The Only Bad Yoga Class is the One That Didn’t Happen

Winter is here. It’s dark horribly early. It’s raining. It’s cold. It’s SO easy to go straight home after work, miss class, and open the red wine and sit on the couch. It’s the Winter Blues where I can see attendance drop off a little. Don’t let it get to you gorgeous! You are worth Read More

Fabulous teaching style!

I just wanted to send you a note to say how much I loved the eight week beginner course. I have attended quite a few yoga classes over the last few years (both in Sydney and Auckland), but  the time you took explaining how to practise the Asana’s taught me so much and has really sparked Read More

Yogic breathing has been invaluable to me for reducing stress

The thing that I find I use most outside of my yoga class is the breathing technique. It really helps to bring my heart rate down plus I find it relaxes me in stressful situations.

Yoga has given me a more relaxed state of mind

The thing that has struck me most about taking up yoga with Positive Balance is that I now have a more relaxed state of mind. I love the way that Louise has given me the ability to reduce my stress through breathing. Fabulous!

Yoga is mentally rewarding

I didn’t expect my Beginners Yoga Course to have such a significant mental aspect to it, I’ve really found that I’ve got more peace since starting yoga. I’m sure its going to be a long and rewarding journey for me. Thanks!

Interview with Karen Braund – Positive Balance’s Monday morning Intermediate yoga teacher

How did you come to yoga? I’ve always been the sort of person that likes to keep fit and to be healthy. I was a regular at the gym, but I hadn’t tried a yoga class before. My first introduction to yoga wasn’t all that inspiring, actually. I tried a very gentle class at first Read More

Yoga is great for all-over ‘feel-good’!

I find the Positive Balance yoga classes are great for all-over feel-good: mind and body. It’s way more physically and mentally challenging than you think it is going to be, but although it’s physically challenging, it’s not harsh or aggressive or competitive – it’s powerful but calming.

Yoga is an investment in your wellbeing and personal happiness

Positive Balance yoga will do wonders for your flexibility, strength and sporting performance, and ensure you stay fit and strong for life. But it is much more than great physical exercise, it is an investment in your wellbeing and personal happiness. The impact of our fast-paced world on our breathing and stress levels makes yoga Read More
