Our Classes

Classes are held at Reconnect Yoga - a nurturing haven, away from the hustle, in Brunswick West.

Since opening in 2010, Reconnect Yoga has grown into a soulful hub, providing supportive and accessible yoga and movement  classes designed to suit the needs of every body.

Each 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.

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.

"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!”

“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.”

As a senior level executive I have always struggled with “work life balance” and have strived, pushed and pursued a lifestyle where I could have it all; the successful career, the model parent and being a people pleaser to friends and every community endeavour! After stepping out of a very demanding GM role, instead of basking in the freedom I assumed I would have, I found I felt empty, isolated and lost.

“Restore and renew” was the one thing in the past 3 months that has made the difference! It allowed my to reconnect with myself, slow down from the “adrenal junkie” I had become and give in to nurturing myself from within, rather that seeking to fill the space with external gratification or numbing myself.

I can truly say that 4 sessions of “renew and restore” has brought back balance, self respect and a sense of peace and acceptance, I have not experienced in years.

Thank you Wai Ying and “Reconnect Yoga” for allowing me to reconnect, nurture and bring peace and respect to myself. Without a doubt I will be seeing you next term and can’t wait!
