"I love my Wednesday morning Yin practice with Amanda. Not only do I feel taller when I leave, the practice of 90 minutes goes so quickly. Each pose is like a mini meditation which leaves me feeling energised for my day' Sarah M, 46

"The class we did for backs released my 20+years chronically tight right psoas" Jos, 58

"I haven't slept this well in years" Tom, 28

"My Yin session, the slower meditative yoga, is the perfect reprieve in this fast paced life we live" Rae-ann,

"'Yin with Amanda is a deeply meditative and restorative process for my heart and body. Her gentle, professional guidance through the practice creates a safe space for the Yin practice and for presence to enter." Liz, 60

Increase your flexibility & mobility, reduce stress & tension, cultivate a calm and quiet mind.

Enjoy long deep stretches that can release both mental and physical tension to nurture your body and mind.

Yin is a functional style of yoga. The floor based postures specifically encourage mobility and flexibility and nourish into your joints, spine & the connective tissues of your whole body as well as increasing your overall sense of well-being.  Yin/Yang includes both yin postures as well as asanas to strengthen the body and improve balance.


Please join us at Mountain Spirit, a Secluded Sanctuary.  Our yoga studio is in a light-filled yurt, in a beautiful and peaceful setting, surrounded by the sounds of nature on the Hawea Back Road. All levels of ability are welcome.

With our attention mostly turned outwards in these busy modern times, the practice of Yin yoga invites you to find balance and create space by bringing your attention inwards and tuning into your body.

"Presence is not something we do with our mind, it is experienced through the body" Eckhart Tolle

When my mind is quiet, my intuition speaks louder than my fears
