Hatha Yoga with Harishakti (Helen Dobbie) certified Yoga instructor 2001
Improve your health, well-being & develop an awareness of spirit through the ancient practices of Hatha yoga. This classical style of yoga works on many levels physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually bringing strength and suppleness to mind and body. In its pure form it is a process of purification which works to balance and harmonize the polar energies so as to prepare one for deep states of meditation where one could experience Samadhi (bliss) union with the divine. Classes with Harishakti are non-competitive and suitable for all levels and focus on the development of inner well-being through the practice of Asana (postures) Pranayama (breathing techniques) Mantra (sacred sound) and relaxation/ meditation techniques to calm and still the mind. Harishakti attended her first Yoga class in 1998 and felt the benefits of yoga instantly - the calmness she felt along with the physical benefits led her to want to learn more. She completed a teacher training course with Friends in Yoga (Finy) in 2001 and has been teaching for over a decade. Her classes are influenced mostly by the Satyananda system of Yoga but she has tried various other styles of Yoga such as Iyengar, and has attended classes with many other teachers of which all have their own unique way in teaching. Harishakti is committed to her ongoing learning of Yoga & personal development having recently completed a 2 yr Diploma in Yoga (2016) at the Academy of Yoga Science located in NSW. Sharing the gift of Yoga with the community and connecting with people from all walks of life is for her an honor and a blessing.
