About Us

RECONNECT YOGA STORY

Reconnect Yoga is a nurturing haven, away from the hustle, in Brunswick West.

Since opening its studio doors in 2013, Reconnect Yoga has grown into a soulful hub, providing supportive and accessible yoga and movement classes designed to suit the needs of every body.

Whether for the first time or the hundredth, we invite you to begin again, to reconnect with your core self, physically and emotionally, on the mat and in life.

We teach with a sense of fun and curiosity – blending nurturing practices, like a snug savasana, with laughter and a deep respect for each other and ourselves.

We’re committed to helping you take the benefits of your practice off the mat and into your everyday interactions with loved ones, colleagues and the community.

RECONNECT YOGA CLASSES

Yoga and somatics can create the space the body needs to heal and restore strength. With time, this practice creates space in the mind and a greater sense of calm within.

Each of our yoga classes combines elements of yoga breathing (pranayama), yoga postures (asana) and deep relaxation (savasana) techniques, to create more stability, ease and flow on the mat and in your day-to-day life.

Our teachers have experienced the benefits of yoga and movement first-hand, during all phases of fitness, health and flexibility. It’s why we offer a range of classes designed for different purposes, and a variety of teachers, workshops and events year round.

Hatha Yoga Classes

“I came to Wai Ying’s yoga class as a last resort. After trying numerous physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors my lower back problems had been stubbornly persisting and even getting worse. I couldn't put on shoes or socks in the mornings, I awoke many times in the night with pain and there was constant pain radiating down one leg which was beginning to effect the other leg. The amount of exercise I could do was slowly diminishing as my range of movement diminished. The worst thing was that no one seemed to know what was wrong, and it was depressing to see myself going downhill with no real hope in sight.

After my first class with Wai YIng I was  immediately hopeful. The pain was really no better at that point, but I felt like I'd been able to mobilise (oh so slightly) parts of my back which had been frozen for a long time.

Two years down the track and I'm still practicing. I haven't had radiating pain for ages and my back pain has all but disappeared. If I stop yoga for a long holiday my symptoms begin to re-appear so I know it is working. Yoga is the only thing which was able to get me back doing the activities I've enjoyed all my life. I run, swim, horse ride, fence and travel a lot doing these, and my garden is back to being tended properly.

It is also the little things which I can do again , and which make life generally more enjoyable. Like chasing a puppy who has stolen your sock, or picking up something which dropped to the ground and handing it back to a stranger. Just being able to act spontaneously and freely without thinking, "is it going to hurt?" is possibly the best part of being well again.

I think that sports people can un-wittingly develop in-balances in their bodies after years of high repetitions on specific exercises. Regular yoga practice can help you rebalance your body , help cure injuries and avoid others. Plus I like the relaxation part.”

Reconnect Yoga Studio

"Reconnect Yoga is a relaxed and friendly space. No matter what your level of experience is with the practice of yoga, Wai Ying and the other teachers will find ways to challenge you but always within your own personal  capabilities.

During the 4 years I have been attending classes I have noticed improvements in my posture and flexibility and now incorporate yoga into my daily routine.

I can’t recommend Wai Ying and the other teachers highly enough.”

Hatha Yoga Classes

"I have been attending weekly classes with Wai Ying at Reconnect Yoga for over 4 years. I had never practised yoga prior to attending these classes and the passion for yoga Wai Ying exudes is infectious.

Classes are relaxed, fun, supportive and tailored to the individual and their own physical capabilities. When I had a tear in my Achilles, Wai Ying ensured that certain poses were supported or altered to prevent aggravation and re-injury.

Focus is on the breath and the integrity of each movement – not about how hard or how far you can push your body and you leave the class feeling great!”
