“What is Transformational Based Alignment Yoga (T.A.B.Y.)?”
T.A.B.Y. is suitable for all students of yoga from beginners to experienced. T.A.B.Y supports students to develop understanding of the benefits of alignment, sequencing and longer timings. Students and always encouraged to only go to their edge! This allows for the introduction of how to work with basic and more challenging poses alike. Alternative poses are always offered for any poses students might not feel ready to try. Emphasis is always placed on only going to your personal limit in all poses and finding your own personal alignment. A deeper yoga for everyone.

A space of acceptance and kindness to support you in your yoga journey. Our yoga journey began in the 1970’s searching the yoga ashrams of India. Today our school is a place to practice yoga in traditional styles with heart and community. Our philosophy strongly supports “Unconditional Acceptance” and “Love of Yourself and Others”. On a practical level this means we encourage you to only go to your edge in all the Poses – breathe through any stiffness or tightness, watch and witness the feelings that come. We believe in our students and we work at providing a space to practice that is safe and welcoming to everyone and all body types. Big, Small, Skinny, Large. This includes all types of people whether they are Anglo,Asian,African,Indigenous Australian, Native American, Indian,Chinese, Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Pagan, Hindu, Buddhist, Men, Women, and of course LGBTQIA. Unconditional Acceptance and Love for everyone. We love to make Yoga fun and use it as a building block for a peaceful Community.
