Kerry Wailes Yoga & Massage

Yoga, Meditation & Relaxation Classes

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

Kerry has 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.

I am doing a weekly guided meditation on Zoom, on Sunday evenings at 8pm. No obligations, no cost. Just follow the instructions below and show up on Sundays at 8pm. (Just as an aside - the stronger your commitment, the greater will be the outcomes created.)'

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!"
