BEGINNER Yoga Series

Brand New to Yoga? Nervous about stepping into an established class setting? This 4 Week Series will give you the full scoop on the ins and outs of stepping onto your mat at the beginning of your journey. Develop a basic understanding of our foundational yoga poses, using yoga props, how to manage your breath, the basics of meditation, and a few ‘frequently used yoga terms’ such as ‘Namaste,’ ‘Om,’ and ‘Savasana’ (the best part of the yoga practice by the way!) This workshop is also appropriate for yogis who have been in their practice for a time, but want to go ‘Back to Basics’ to assure that they are practicing mindfully and with proper technique. We hope to supporting the start of your amazing journey ahead!

Such exciting news here at Jayayoga this month!

Our very own studio owner and founding director, Jennifer Allen, has just been named by The Yoga Lunchbox as one of the Top 10 Best Up and Coming Yoga Teachers in New Zealand and Australia!!

This is a true testament to her passion for Safe, Sustainable Yoga, and we are grateful to have her as a teacher and mentor. Jennifer teaches in the studio on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, and Tuesday and Wednesday nights.


Phew! What a job!

We had 243 nominations for 93 teachers for New Zealand & Australia’s Best Up-and-Coming Yoga Teachers.  Based on the written testimonials from students, and some research of our own, we whittled the 93 down to 22 teachers. Those last 22 teachers we asked three questions:

  1. What does teaching yoga mean to you?

  2. How do you live your yoga?

  3. What’s your home yoga practice like?
