More about the Class:
The class will be suitable for all levels of yoga experience.
The class will include gentle movement, mindful breathing and relaxation. The class will support quality of sleep, stress management and physical wellbeing.
Lis asks that participants have dinner after the class as a full stomach won’t be comfortable, and for participants to wear comfortable, restrictive clothing (no jeans or belts).
A yoga mat is handy but not essential. A cushion and a large towel will be fine for the class.
More about Lis White:
Lis’ journey with Yoga began in 2001 primarily for the physical benefits to complement her love for being active. As her practice grew with studying various styles of Yoga the benefits extended beyond the mat and transformed her life far more than just physically. Over the years of practicing and studying many aspects of Yoga, she has experienced the profound effect it can have on the mental, spiritual and emotional self. Her inspiration is to bring this to each of her participants in her classes.
In 2008 Lis traveled to India to immerse herself in the study of Hatha Yoga at a residential Yoga Teacher and Ayurveda Training centre in the Nilgiris Mountains of Southern India. Following this life changing experience Lis continued to experience the wonders of the world leaving Australia to teach yoga in the Greek Islands, Morocco, Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala and Bali. In 2010, Lis continued her studies of Yoga with further travel to San Fransisco for a month long intensive teacher training under Jasmine Tarkeshi from Laughing Lotus Yoga.
The style of Yoga that Lis teaches is known as Vinyasa or Flow, drawing on the human body’s great capacity for flowing movement with breath, whilst exploring deeper physical awareness on gross and subtle levels. Lis teaches weekly open vinyasa flow and slow vinyasa flow, as well as a Restore class that blends Yin, restorative, myofascial release, pranayama and meditation. Classes are adapted for the time of the day, season and day of the week to support living in alignment.
In her classes Lis employs an in-depth anatomical and physiological knowledge gained from her qualifications and experience in Exercise Physiology and Rehabilitation. Lis is currently teaching on a level one foundational teacher training course with Ray Of Light Yoga, delivering Anatomy and Physiology as it is applied to Yoga.
Alongside teaching and being a Mum, Lis works in the field of rehabilitation with her honours in Rehabilitation. Lis is currently working as an Exercise Physiologist with Amplified Health, specialising in neurological rehabilitation. She is honoured to share adapted yoga with her clients in group and private chair yoga classes. Lis is able to apply this knowledge to her Yoga students to ensure that each student is safe and participating in a practice that offers balance, healing and nourishment.
