Yoga, Meditation & Relaxation Classes in Diamond Creek

Kerry has been teaching Yoga, Meditation and Relaxation since the early 1990s and has a Yoga Teacher’s Diploma from the Sarasvati Yoga Society (2003). She is trained by the legendary Swami Sarasvati, one of the first proponents of yoga in Australia.* Kerry is also a member of the International Institute of Complementary Therapists (IICT).

Kerry has also had training in a range of yoga styles. Her approach is holistic, offering tools that people can work with in their daily lives. She would like yoga, meditation and relaxation to be accessible to as many people as possible who might benefit from it.

Kerry offers a number of stages to many poses, which students may perform according to their ability. The emphasis is not so much on extreme poses and physical prowess, but on the state of mind in which we carry out these things.

Classes cater for beginner to intermediate levels.

Testimonials

‘I signed up to Kerry’s Yoga class because friends and family often told me I needed to find my ‘pause button’. That was 3 terms ago & I have no intention of giving up! Kerry gently encourages us to work at our own pace and, furthermore, assures us that we will notice the benefits in many areas of our lives. I am pleasantly surprised at how true that really is!’

Lashay, Eltham

‘I tried yoga years ago and didn’t like it. A physiotherapist advised that I should start yoga as my body needed it to cope with the strenuous exercise I do daily. It took a year to finally get there, only because a friend insisted I book in to the course with her. From the first 5 minutes I loved it. The course is at a beginners level, exactly what I need, and Kerry is a very relaxed, thorough teacher. Also, I’ve learnt that yoga isn’t just good for my body. I now take a holistic approach to yoga, and the meditation we do, and look forward to every lesson’

Julie Merrett, Diamond Creek

‘I was telling my assistant at work about the yoga classes, and I told her about Kerry’s suggestion of taking “a full yoga breath” when we get into a stressy situation. How just taking the deep breath can relieve the tension and helps to stop the feelings of anger or anxiety. So every now and then during the last couple of weeks I’ve said to her “take a full yoga breath”.

This morning I came to work late, trying to fight off a cold and couldn’t get something to start working and was getting into a flap when my assistant said “Hey, take a full yoga breath. Not only does it work but it’s catchy as well.”

Namaste, Viv Porter

 

‘Australia Day weekend was a little stressful, since there was a family member visiting.

On Saturday night I was perched on a little knoll near Hurstbridge Primary school playgrounds, suffering from a migraine. I then sat down in the easy pose and meditated with the sun setting and a gentle breeze blowing in my face and bingo the migraine was gone.

 Thank-you for showing me how to find peace in difficult situations.’
